I'm pretty bad at drawing; whenever I want to draw a straight line it always ends up crooked or there's a little bump on it that ruins everything. I did get an award in the subject at the end of the 9th grade, but I'm suspecting that they figured I deserved something, but couldn't find anything that I was really good at. For those interested, I think it was during the 8th grade that I finally seemed to find some footing in learning, with my math grades in particular taking a significant turn upwards. Of course I had some good teachers too that encouraged me.
In any case, I find that my inability to draw clean lines really limit me now that I have think of the aesthetics while drawing kanji. While remembering the stroke order is just a case of rote memorization, drawing them is something completely different. When drawing them small they look okay, but as soon as I need to schale them up I get in trouble. According to our teacher, we should practice drawing each kanji >50 times, but somehow that doesn't seem to happen. We're going to have an actual test where they examine our kanji writing abilities later on (around May-July, I think).
I'm keeping it under observation in a plastic container for now, waiting for developments. It seems to like apple.
