My learning project consisted of me using different technologies and tools to teach myself how to handwrite, or do “modern calligraphy”. I found myself practicing outside of the actual project posts but constantly doodling and writing random quotes here and there.

I found it so cool that there is such an abundance of websites and apps that can teach different skills out there.
