I don't know why but I always feel more comfortable when using pencils to take notes at home. My preference is to use mechanical pencils for note taking. What do you guys use and why ?

I use pencils when doing crosswords , it is easy to erase if I get something wrong.

Crosswords demand a pencil though the crossword geniuses use a pen as part of the challenge.

Black pen is my secondary weapon. The pencil is my primary weapon of choice.

Professional environments demand us to use pen. I got some comments from by boss when I first started working so I used a black pen at work.

I prefer using black sign pen for writing. I only use pencil when I have to fill up some forms to give chance for some adjustments on the entries.

I use mostly pens because mechanical pencils' lead can break easily if I write too hard.

Most of the time I would use a pen to write on a piece of paper as a draft then I would re write my notes on good paper. But if I have to take notes straight to good paper then I prefer to use pencil...
