Kids sure are lucky these days because they have laptops and PDAs to help them with their school work. Back in my day,
all we had were pencils, that we had to sharpen with a pocket knife as we walked to school barefoot in the
snow. Ok, maybe it wasn’t that bad… But really, all we had were pens and pencils to take notes
during class. I used to hate taking
notes in school because my mind had a really bad habit of wandering. Fast forward to present day
and not much has changed. My mind still wanders and I still don’t like taking notes. But, now I have a new tool that can help fill in the
gaps during those times when I’m supposed to be paying attention during meetings. It’s an electronic pen called the Pulse Smartpen from Livescribe.
