My Favorite Pens for Note-Taking

In the last post I talked about taking notes in a journal and some things to remember when doing that. To expand a bit more and answer a lot of your questions, I’d like to share with you my most favorite pens that I use for school in a few close-up photos.

I tend to write in cursive way more than in print: it’s faster, easier for my hand, and doesn’t look half-bad. It’s very satisfying to flip through the pages of a finished journal and see everything written in the same style, with the same pen, and with the same note-taking structure . Some time in the winter I bought a couple of very simple-looking G-TEC-C4 Pilot Pens at the UW Bookstore. These pens are amazing and I love them so much that I haven’t lost a single one in the last few months (new record!).
