Pencil vs Pen

I will not talking about pen here. I prefer pencil MORE than pen. Some—many—people ever asked me, “Hey, can’t you use pen just ONCE?”

Even some teachers gave me note in my schoolbook because I never use pen in it. They said, “… Please use pen,” or, “If you don’t have any pen, borrow it from me.”

Sometimes I asked myself, “Why should I use pen? I like pencil more than pen!”

Then, I got an answer that oftenly given by some teachers: “Because you’re SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL student now.”

Is this it?

Okay, I’ll ask again then, “Why Senior High School students HAVE TO USE pen?”

Look, pencil is classic. If you make a mistake while you writing, you can use the eraser. If you use pen, it’s permanent. You can use something like a “corrector”, but it makes your paper dirty—I think.

I have another reasons why I love pencil.

  1. You can tuck your pencil behind your ear.
  2. You can sharpen your pencil.
  3. Pencil is cheap.
  4. If your pencil is wet, you can dry it. But for pen, you must think about the ink.
  5. Pencil is durable.

See? Please, I love pencil more than pen. I remember when my teacher said to me, “Your writing is not clear if you use pencil.” Then, I think, the problem is my writing, not my pencil. Though I use pen, my writing will be as ugly as USUAL.

Please, don’t force me.

Thank you.

  1. personally, I like pen better than pencil, because I can’t press my pen tip to the paper deeply. imagine if I use pencil, of course other people can’t read my writing

    in examination, my lecturer also forbid her students to write the answer using pencil. the reason is similar with your teacher’s

    but, in laboratory, we should mark the compound in the label using pencil, because it will not be faded, not like pen which can be faded by water or alcohol, or another solvents

    nice post! 😀
