Hehehe, pretty much.
@mechgamer Why use a fountain pen instead of a ballpoint? It's much more convenient to carry through college and cost effective too not to mention the risk of work being wiped out by a water spill. I know the arguments of a fountain pen vs a ballpoint. In fact, I used to write with the fountain pen exclusively but today ballpoints has come a long way. They don't require a lot of pressure and are very reliable (Eg/ Papermate Inkjoy).
If you wish to get a fountain pen, I would suggest saving up and buy the pen of your dreams otherwise you will keep on buying fountain pens until you reach the holy grail - it's a painfully expensive process.
ps. I don't believe you're a "poor college student" from the looks of your audio gear.
Very good point, I probably should just go with a ballpoint. A lot of the ones I've had over the years require more force to write though, which is annoying. I'll probably just end up doing that and using fountain pens to write other stuff.
I haven't even started looking in the "dream" category though. I don't even want to be tempted by anything more expensive...
I didn't buy any of that gear while I was in college, or at least that's my excuse.
