#356: Develop a real signature.

Date: 12-22-2014

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.
