My signature

Our signature is the part of our handwriting, that says the most about our personality. My signature is in Armenian. It contains first letter of my surname and initials of my first name. I decided create my signature on this way, because of I love my name. As mention in text I had positive fellengs about my childhood and my “private” self is more important than my “public” self (but, I a little bit disagree with this opinion).   My signature you can read clearly, and this means that I am a person with clear ideas. As my signature is horizontal , that means that my life is going well-balanced. And finally the size of my signature is not small and not big.
