Uni Jetstream Standard Ballpoint Pen - 0.38 mm - Black Ink - Apricot Body - UNI SXN-150-38 .54
  This is my absolute favorite..., October 29, 2013
This is my absolute favorite note-taking pen. Smooth, comfortable and cute, this pen has not failed me yet--excluding the one time I used up all the ink. When it comes to ballpoint pens, I am very picky. It has to write flawlessly with no clumping, and no sticking. And this is one of the only pens that does just that. This is definitely the smoothest ballpoint pen you will ever find in its size. I originally started out with a 0.5mm, but once this bad boy 0.38mm came out, I can't stop myself. Right now, I currently own 5--two in my pencil bag, three in my pen cup at home.
Tips for ballpoint pens: If your ball point pen stops working, try scribbling on the bottom of your shoe. Sometimes the ball in the tip gets stuck with dry or clumpy ink and the paper itself is not enough to get it started again. Trying a different medium, like the rubber sole of a shoe, might have enough friction to get you back on your happy pen way.

Sonic Nobirura 16<->30 cm Extendable Ruler - Clear Blue - SONIC SK-499-CB
  The Sonic Nobirura Extendable..., October 29, 2013
The Sonic Nobirura Extendable Ruler is a must for any math, science or OCD student out there! With its retractable feature, this ruler can be easily stored in a regular pencil bag, then extended for its full potential when needed. At first, I was skeptical of the section that slides out. I thought maybe it would break off easily, come loose or get stuck. To my great and happy surprise, the extendable section slides out of position smoothly and clicks into place to line up for the full 30 centimeters. With the clear body, it is easy to line up with ruler with anything and will surely fulfill any OCD tendencies.
I do caution you that sometimes the second half (extendable half) will bend side to side under pressure, so your lines may sometimes be crooked. To make sure it does not move, hold down both sides of the ruler with one hand--your thumb on the extended portion, your middle three fingers on the clear section, and your pinky and palm on the table or solid surface.

Pilot FriXion Ball Slim Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Red - PILOT LFBS-18UF-R
  If you have tried the..., October 29, 2013
If you have tried the original Pilot Frixion Gel Ink pens, then you already know how well this pen works. With erasable ink, colored sketches, notes, corrections, or doodles are endlessly fun and easy! Plus, with this new, slim body, these pens can be taken anywhere without taking up too much space. The retractable mechanism really expedites the process of changing colors, say when I am taking class notes, and gives easier access. With the slim tip, writing between the lines or along margins is no unbearable obstacle anymore!
To make sure that when erasing there are no random smudges and that the ink "disappears" effectively, be sure to check the rubber eraser for stray ink marks or debris.
Like the original pens, I still wish the ink were slightly darker, but its understandable that it isn't given that it is supposed to be erasable.
Here's a cool tip: There is a small hole in the clear lever that when you push down retracts the tip. Use that hole by stringing it with string and hang it up or tie them to a notebook so that you always have a pen readily accessible.

Zebra Espina Pearly Rubber Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Pink Grip - ZEBRA MA3-P
  This is a fantastic pencil..., October 29, 2013
This is a fantastic pencil for anyone on the go. It is durable, smooth, compact, and comfortable. The entire body is made up of plastic rubber, so the grip is always comfortable. As always, do not use the end eraser, but instead have a separate, hand-held eraser because the end eraser is too small to last. I do recommend that you clean it every so often because it does get easily dirty since it is primarily rubber.
This was one of the first pencils I bought, and I still use it today!

Uni Propus Window Soft Color Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - 5 Color Set - UNI PUS-102T5CS
  This set of vibrant highlighte..., January 28, 2013
This set of vibrant highlighters have gotten me through hundreds of pages of textbooks boring enough to make a rock snore. Their colors are highly attractive, the packaging could not have been designed better, and the product is double the use with double ended sides of different sizes.
The only concern I faced with this product was the ink flow. Many times, especially with the skinnier twin tip, large amounts of ink would flow straight to the tip and create a large blot on my paper. I believe this could be accounted through the angle of which you hold your highlighter.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend this set for all you busy body studiers ;)
Uni Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Blue Body - UNI M54501P.33
  I love this pencil! In..., January 28, 2013
I love this pencil! In fact I love it so much I have about 5 different ones :)
They're great for taking detailed notes in smaller spaces, especially with the 0.5 mm lead versions. Finding the right lead for this pencil was a little tricky at first though. I originally favored the 2B leads because they left a dark and definite mark, but with these pencils, the 2B lead was too soft and tended to shave excessively. So I switched to the 2HB leads, and problem solved!
I highly recommend this pencil for those who write with soft-medium pressure and prefer to have a sharp edge on the lead.
For those with a heavier hand but still want the rotating feature, look towards the 0.7mm Kuru Toga.
