    I went to Staples yesterday and got TWELVE packages of Bic Atlantis pens. The pack of 6 pens were on sale for $2 each, combined with the "Buy 2 BIC products - get 1 free", I paid $16 for 72 pens. Such a good deal!

    I hate pens that write thin - they don't tend to roll easily across the page and I actually tend to put a lot of pressure down when I write. I am in love with Paper-Mate Profiles "The World's Smoothest Pen" 1.4mm. They do run out of ink quickly though, which is annoying. I stocked up on a ton of them a couple of weeks ago.

    I know! Most people prefer thin - but I have noticed those who prefer thin tend to have a light hand when it comes to writing. I press down pretty hard. And my penmanship is very "direct contact" style for whatever reason - I have also noticed those who prefer thin tend to have more of a "printing" style of writing...? Not sure if this would hold up as evidenced based though I hate felt tip pens the most!

    My favorite for taking notes and overall writing is the Precise V5 by Pilot. Comes in all colors besides black and blue which I use to distinguish main points or curious info. I NEVER let anyone borrow my pens...they are apart of me and if I lost one it's like loosing an arm ....sounds crazy I know lol.

    I write in cursive and print both, depending on... my mood, I guess? I'm not sure. Also, the type of pen I'm using determines whether or not I write or print.

    I hate felt tips, too!

    OK, I am a complete and total pen snob! I like the look of gel ink but I hate smearing and bleed-through. The best all around pen is the Uniball Jet Stream...the ink is super dark and even thoughnit is a ball point pen, it writes super smooth like a gel pen.

    I recommend it times ten!

    I am addicted to anything school and office supply related. My favorite pens are the TUL needlepoint fine retractable from office max. Ever since they came out with that line of writing instruments I have been hooked. I carry my writing supplies in a crystal light cylinder container and everyone always comments on what a swell idea that is. I don't tell them but that is my security blanket at school. I keep it within sight at all times! I wish everything in the world smelled like crayons. Brings me back to good times in kindergarten.

    I also absolutely LOVE office supplies!!
    I love Pilot Easy Touch clickables, medium point. Fell in love a few years ago and never looked back. I also always have a Sharpie marker with me at clinicals- I never know when I will need to label something (basin, toothbrush, etc). People are always borrowing it!!
