Maybe you did not know but, Sunday, August 13 is the International Day of the Left-Handers, and if you are a left-handed person, you are very aware that this is a world of right-handers, like it or not. We want to do a small tribute to the lefties through this list of things that only a left-handed person can understand, and suffer sometimes.

1. When you first enter a new classroom and you know exactly how the rest of the semester will be like.

From scissors and desks to ring binders and notebooks, everything you find on the street is designed for people very different from you, but that does not mean you should give up.
