    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!!

    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 love those for multi colored writing too.

    I also hate felt tips.

    I've been having a great time shopping for great deals on office/school supplies. I even found some great name brand highlighters at the dollar store. I also found a great storage clipboard at Sam's club. And I know it's not really the same thing but I love shopping for lunch boxes too. I found an adorable Owl lunch bag Target. School starts Monday, and I can hardly wait to use all my great finds.

    I love the Paper Mate Profile, Pilot Dr Grip Center of Gravity Ballpoint Pen, and the Zebra Original F.301 retractable fine ballpoint pen.

    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!
    I have to have thin because I write extremely small. If I didnt have a thin pen, it would be a giant smudge all across my sheet

    Nothing wrong with a curvy pen. Geeeze even the pens need to be anorexic

    As long as it has a good grip to it, it will do just fine

    Yeah personally, I prefer a little girth!

    That's what I'm talkin' about - it has to be able to cope should I be more forceful than intended in my urgency to get the job done.

    pilot v5 or smaller if i can find it, because i write really small. they come in retractable versions and with pull-off covers.

    but my go-to pen for just about everything in my life is a gold cross fountain pen with the finest nib they make, a gift from my sweet husband when we wrote letters (actual letters, on paper, with stamps. imagine:heartbeat) when we were courting and living cross-country from each other, a mere twenty-five years ago. i cherish that box of all the letters we wrote to each other over that year and since-- i kept them all, and didn't my heart go pitta-pat when i learned he did, from the first one. someday my grandchildren will find them and marvel:heartbeat. there's just something about how a real nib molds itself to your handwriting that is so seductive.

    and because miss manners says a lady always uses blue-black ink, it was always easy to find my notes in the charts when i worked as an in-house case manager. the docs liked it too.

    I'm in love with the new levenger True Writer my in-laws gifted me for Christmas. There's something so nice about how it feels in hand, and because I take a LOT of notes and also write a lot in my 'free' time, having a really good pen and some really beautiful inks-- it's just a treat. That's my vice- I don't smoke and rarely drink, so... Guess I can't complain!!
    I'm a student, and as soon as clinicals start, I'll have to use something else, as it would break my heart to lose my lovely pen. Has anyone else tried the inkjoy pens?? They wrote pretty smooth and were decently priced...

    INKJOY!! Yes, I LOVE InkJoy by PaperMate. I fell head over heels for them after buying a pack of 8 different colors because it was pretty cheap (I think about $2.50?), and I am a very visual person and different colors work well for my when taking notes and making flash cards. So I told my family about them, and for Christmas I got a pack of 8 black ones and two packs of 8 different colored ones in my stocking! They write smooth, are clicky, have very pretty colors, and are reasonably priced. Can't ask for much more
