So I'm cleaning my desk, in preparation for buying school supplies this weekend (though, really, all I need at this point is the rest of my books, printer paper, and good pens for taking notes; I have notebooks already, and mom says that she has lined paper. Another small whiteboard for my side of the office would be nice, but other than that... college requires a lot less stuff than elementary school did, thank goodness [well, thank goodness in that it's better for my wallet; it's not good for my office supply jones.] And I already have things like the big holepunch, which don't go bad.) In 2 cups on my desk, I had: a one hole punch, scissors, an exacto knife, one chop stick, 4 unsharpened pencils (which is funny, because when my mom was trying to tell me what I needed for school supplies a week or so ago, she was trying to tell me that I need pencils that I don't use. They may be left over from stats 2 semesters ago), 1 unsharpened NCSU sociology souvenir pencil, 14 pens (none of which are the kind that I can write with for more than 10 minutes without killing my wrists and hands, and thus, do me little good), 3 fine point sharpies, 9 highlighters, and 7 dry erase markers (which are, of course, helpfully located on my desk instead of the dry erase board across the room.)

Clearly, I need to clean off my desk more often. And check supplies before I buy more supplies (which is how Ginger and I, once upon a time, ended up with 6 jars of soy sauce.) Does anyone want to take a guess on how many of these pens actually work? :) And does anyone have a favorite non-wrist killing pen that they recommend (preferably refillable, since I get tired of throwing the silly things away)?

    I've used Fitday for my food tracking needs for quite awhile now. It's generally done what I've needed it to do. However, I'm getting tired of things…
