I know cursive since it' s taught in school here as well, however, I prefer to write in a horrible mix of all types of styles possible. To not deviate this topic even more and answer the original question "Is your handwriting similar to your past life handwriting?" I guess my answer would be no. Here are some comparison attempts for posterity that I made some time ago. Attempt to compare actual handwriting with Pl handwriting, I copied the same but in my actual style, it was a few years ago so I don' t remember if I looked at the original or not, I think not, that I used someone' s translation online because I cannot understand what the heck I wrote in the past. (It' s the papers on the right, the paper on the left is something different posted later) Needless to say, depending on the circumstances, I cannot understand later what the heck I wrote in the present either (this was copied in class): Past life handwriting: This is a bunch of German blabbery I wrote to see how my handwriting looked in German.
