Ever since I was at school, I loved to carry every possible pen/pencil I would ever need, I’d used to have a large pencil case with all my favourite pens and pencils and would really only need to use 2 or 3.
Moving on to college I switched to having 1 pen/pencil combo pen which came with 3 ink colors and and automatic 0.5mm pencil, which I then also replaced with a large pencil case lol.
College was a different story since sometime you would need that extra pen/pencil especially when working on projects or your instructor allowing you to enter a double sided A4 handwritten cheat sheet where i’d use a 0.1 Uni Pin Fine line pen (like the pic below).
Now with a wife and 2 Kids, I still love going to book/stationary shops to see what kind of new pens that are available, it’s not like I need them, I use a computer at work and at home I have an android tablet (moto Xoom) and iPad and rarely need to write using a pen or pencil. I also used to draw (pencil drawings) which i have all sorts of pencils and tone ranges and sketch books.
What I think would’ve been cool if it was there when I was in College/School:
LiveScribe pens, Unfortunately I couldn’t really find a good justification for me to buy one of those and the nice notepads that come with it, as I won’t really be needing them for work or home, but would’ve been great for me for school or college. I used to write a lot, and sometimes when reviewing my notes i’d try to remember what the instructor said and couldn’t (especially in calculus lol). The ability to have a soft-copy of all your note would also save you, especially when your note goes missing before an exam, and you wouldn’t really need to type out your notes in a computer either.
I’m starting to think I need one hehehe.. What Do you think ?
