I hate ballpoint pens. Or rather, they hate me.
It’s a love-hate relationship where I struggle all the time to make sure that they don’t fail me halfway while I’m scribbling notes or stuff now. I remember all those times in school where I would write and write and nothing ever comes out, not even after burning the little buggers at the tip or slamming them into walls/desks.
So I became one of those nuts who are all into ink pens. The whole “ink pens are great” became my daily mantra. That’s all I ever fill my pencil case with anyway – blue, red, black…fine, medium…as long as it was ink based, I was happy.
Until I realized that some ink pens are not necessarily waterproof, some don’t dry on glossy surfaces and well, almost all will smear if you’re not careful.
Gack. I guess you can’t win them all, can you?
