Since arriving at Endicott College, I have been able to meet so many people who love Literature and teaching as much as I do! The one thing I’ve noted, that appears to be common among all of the English majors, is that we all have a favorite type of pen. 

My personal favorite is the sharpie felt tip pen. They come in packs of three at Target and cost $4.99. I know this because every time I go to Target, I buy a pack. At this point it’s an addiction, but I honestly don’t care and here’s why: The pen a person chooses to write with matters. A good pen doesn’t smudge, keeping your papers neat and organized. A good pen makes your handwriting look neater than it usually is. For me, a good pen motivates and inspires. 

I have always loved writing in the same way that I love to talk. It is an expression and an outlet for me no matter the assignment. I enjoy taking hand-written notes and crafting meticulous outlines for assignments. 

It took a while to find the right pen for me, but when I did, it changed my perspective. The right pen made me feel smarter and confident, even though the pen you pick up and use is so seemingly insignificant.
