Which do you prefer? I choose pencil over pen when I have the option, but I've been made fun of for using it (my dad said something along the lines of "What are you, five?")

Thats actually a difficult question. It usually comes down to what better for what Im doing. I choose pen just because I use that more since its basically mandatory in most of my classes.

I hate when pen is mandatory! I've had to rewrite lots of things over the years because I wrote in pencil and my teacher wouldn't mark it

I agree. Now that I think about it, pencil are much nicer. The way I form my hand with the pen always end up with me smudging the ink, getting ink on my hand, and effectively making my penmanship look even worse.

I prefer using ink pens (especially nice ones). I'm left-handed, so when I write with a pencil, I get graphite all over the side of my hand, doesn't happen with an ink pen.

I prefer pens.
On tests you just cross out your mistake instead of feeling inclined to erase with a pencil saving you precious seconds.
Same with note taking.
...
Same with a lot of things.

And if you're doing something that demands neatness...well, erasing looks ugly too.

I prefer pens just because my weird cursive-print handwriting looks weird(er) in pencil
And, I tend to write very fast (If i do say so myself) so I have a need a thin roller pen, or its like im just sprawling things out.

Did that even make sense?

Anyways,
I used to use a pen in math class and got yelled, lectured, and even punished for it.
(well, this was in junior high)

And pencils look ugly... (Unless it is a mechanical pencil)

I know, I ramble on a lot.

I prefer Pencils. Wooden ones before mechanical.
Just don't like pens. They move too fast for me, making my already "illegable" handwriting even more illegable. Plus for some reason my hand always has black streaks when im done using one :wtf:

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
