Dec 24/11 Surprise the Ones You Love (14 pics) Here are instructions for a very special gift for the people you love. Buy a Kinder Surprise.

Lastly give the gift to your second half and say something like, “I bought bread and some sweets for you.” Related:  tips and tricks

A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. After coaching handwriting and teaching calligraphy over the years, I’ve learned to see the characteristics of those who’ll be able to pick up the necessary motions quickly from those who’ll have to work a bit harder. Crampy, uneven letters are often the result of drawing the letters with the fingers rather than using the whole arm to write. People who inevitably have trouble with handwriting and calligraphy write with their fingers. If you use the right muscle groups, your writing will have a smooth, easy flow and not look tortured.
