The Colorful World of Writing Utensils
Think it’s realistic to expect no ink marks on your hands and arms after an entire day of note taking? Most say it’s impossible. But perhaps with the right writing utensil, you can at least get not as much.
Here are some of the best choices you’ve got:
If you must successfully complete a colorful project, this is your best bet. They are available in literally each color across the spectrum. Being creative can be an easy way to handle the stress of school. If you sometimes get the urge to just color your way into the finals, grab those markers and begin.
If you’re in doubt about what writing utensil to use, get a pencil. You’ll surely need one for multiple-choice tests and standardized testing. Just erase your mistakes and begin over.
Ergonomic Pencil Grips
If you usually have to use pencil, you probably hate the way your fingers feel sore at the end of each lengthy note-taking session. This is exactly the issue that pencil grips are meant to resolve. These grips are ergonomically designed, which means they provide the right cushioning for fingers in the position they have to be while you’re writing.
There are instances where your last resort is colored pencils. They do come in handy for that out-of-this-world craft assignment we all get.
Whether we like it or not, college classrooms don’t have pencil sharpening stations anymore. If you just hate seeing or hearing lead breaking on a regular pencil, a mechanical switch is your only option.
A fountain tip pen can make writing feel like magic. It can be used to write calligraphy and thick letters. Using this pen requires some skill, but you can always acquire it with practice. If you’re one for fancy writing, this is great for you. Aside from that, imagine writing with a fountain pen in class. Classy!
Most people need a sharpie to label folders and notebooks or whatever. Keep one in handy. You’ll never know when you’ll need it.
Quill Feather Pen
Just like the fountain tip pen, using a quill feather pen for note-taking will also give you that sense of class. Plus you’ll attract the attention of rare pen aficionados and Harry Potter fans.
Of course, when everything is said and done, you will find your loyal standard black and blue ballpen right by your side. You will be able to take notes with it, anytime, anywhere and at any speed. If you tend to scribble your notes while listening to a fast lecture, this pen couldn’t be more perfect.
