The Teacher in Me

I love school supplies. When I was teaching I used to both love and hate this time of year. I hated that my summer was coming to an end, but I loved buying school supplies and decorating my classroom.

I get my love of pens from my Dad. He loves pens, fine point. He would buy a few and split them between the two of us.

I saw a commercial for the Sharpie pen and just had to try it out. Now, I had originally wanted Black, but when I went to Meijer to get it a very rude man was standing right in front of the Sharpie section. So, I patiently waited with my son in the cart and my daughter talking nonstop. After about 1 minute of waiting I politely said "Excuse me, and reached for the pen." He did no move an inch and this entire time did no grab for one pen. Anyway, I accidentally got the blue. The blue is a little darker than your normal blue pen, and I really love it. It doesn't bleed through to the back of the paper and is very smooth.

Here's another Sharpie pen lover. Lila shares my love of pens, so if you are looking for a new pen, she has many reviews on her blog. Here is her thoughts on the Sharpie pen.


  1. I love pens, books, the whole deal :)

  2. I saw my friend using this pen the other day...she said she loves it. Now, I must try it !!

  3. I am not a teacher, but I love pens, and really all school type supplies.. shopping for Zac has always been fun, and I have alwasy gotten me a few things during our school supplies shopping.. LOL
