    I am going to begin using a laptop for school. My teachers agree it would be a good idea as my handwriting is atrocious and there is at this point little time for me to improve it. My issue is I am afraid of being judged or bullied for using a laptop during class.

    Its really not worth wasting your time on people if they did judge you,your handwriting really won't matter so much in the future as if you decided to go to university everyone has a laptop then.

    Just remember, at the end of the day, you get the same length to complete exams but the output speed is greater on a laptop so it's a win!
