For me it's plain Bic blue pens. Anything else and I start complaining about the color of the ink, the way it feels in my hands, the size of the point, etcetera.
2. Do you prefer legal or spiral notebooks?
I usually go for spiral, but this semester I thought I'd be adventurous and go for legal pads. The fact that the paper is rainbow colored had nothing to do with my decision, I assure you.
3. Do you carry around a mini stapler with you?
I do, even though I rarely use it. This is mostly because the one time I asked someone to borrow theirs they said no. Mean people suck.
