#356: Develop a real signature.
Due Date: 12-22-2015
The Resolution: I remember way back when I was in high school as we approached our final year, everyone seemed to be working on developing the perfect signature. It was as if this was the true transition into adulthood.
It was a time when we had to start submitting serious paperwork on our own to finally get the freedom of no longer being a kid. Whether this meant college applications, job applications, leases, checks, etc... it was important that our printed representation of ourselves was just as flawless as the information we were sharing.
I had a pretty decent signature at the time.
Then I became a real adult and found it didn't matter.
At the age of twenty one I started working in the international shipping department at Amazon.com, where I had to sign hundreds of forms a day. I had no time for perfection so my signature devolved to the scribble in the photo above.
Now I rarely have to sign things but the lazy penmanship is embedded deep in my brain.
This year I'm going to work on developing a real signature once again.
Update #1: The Conclusion.
This is another resolution I just kind of forgot about. Well, I guess I didn't really forget about it, I just lost track of it when things spun out of control and I stopped looking ahead to see what deadlines were approach as I battled in my head whether or not to just give up altogether.
That battle is still going on and though I could easily take my time and slowly write an elegant signature to share in a photo and claim success, if I do continue to work on this experiment, through The Bucket List Redemption Challenge I plan to start in the New Year, I want to do it right and truly redeem all the failure from this list.
I openly accept this fail and some time in the future I will practice develop and practice my signature until it become second nature and when I do, I will share my end results with you. I guess we'll have to wait to see how this battle turns out to see if this redemption come to fruition.
