Much Less Stressful
Of the people who responded to this prompt who were pencil forgetters, we’ve seen them fall into two broad camps: there are the people who didn’t care about being prepared for school then and don’t care about being organized and studious now. Some of them almost seem proud of the fact that they never showed up at school with a pencil.
Then you’ve got this poster, who concludes that life is less stressful with a pen. I have to say, I agree with her. I was never as disorganized as the people in this article, but I have definitely learned to be more responsible and prepared as I’ve gotten older, and it absolutely makes things better when you have a pen/Tylenol/tissues/a screwdriver when you need one instead of running around like a chicken with your head cut off when an emergency arises.
