That I can't get the top of my fountain pen off to replace the empty cartridge. On the surface it may not seem like something worth announcing, however it does actually signify the end of any future I could have had. You see I've had this pen since I was 10 (I'm 19 now!) and taking my Grammar school entrance exams. It's a parker you see, they last a long time. This pen has helped me get academic success without me putting in much work/revision... its seen me to university. There's not a single exam I've passed that I have wrote without it. I'm superstitious and naturally believe my success is to do with the pen. The only exam I have failed was A Level maths... which I wrote in pencil. Now I'm like 2 hours and three minutes from a university exam that I've hardly gone to any lectures for. The pen is broken. I'm going to end up failing university, and either working at tesco or game for the rest of my life. That is all. Of course, I should have worked hard for university but still, I was planning to start working hard in second year.
