Regular pencils. I always run out of lead for my mechanical ones right when I need it most, like before an exam.
#6
Wood Pencils for drawing, Mechanical for everything else. But I write so dark that I break lead easily/ run out of lead quickly.

Wooden, I have a habit of writing hard onto the paper so I usually break mechanical pencil leads a lot more than regular pencils.
#11
Mechanical.
I hate it when traditional pencils get dull and squeaky when I write. They make me have to push harder and try to write neater, causing more stress.

i feel like I write neater with a mechanical pencil.. but they're so annoying sometimes.. as long as I have like 5 cases of lead then i'll be fine with a mechanical pencil. Otherwise, get me a sharpener and wooden pencil it is

Fine point black ink pens only.

Unless if I'm doing mathematics, then it's all out mechanical pencils 0.5 mm lead because I can't be arsed with thick font in my handwriting.

I am a machine when it comes to penmanship.
No soul, no flair, just naturally thin micro-arial font

Both serve me quite well. On the other hand, I write like a monkey with epilepsy when I write with pens.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Mechanical pencils, and only the 0.5s that are made by BIC. All other forms of pencil fail.

Mechanical. It's really hard to find a decent pencil sharpener, and even if you can, it's kinda disturbing to use in class. And I get the bics that are like $2 for ten of them, so losing or breaking them really isn't an issue.
