(always took notes with one of these, though)

Aha! Haven't seen one of those pens in years. (My GF loved them. She still buys these.) I bet you were like her - one of those "brainy-girls" with that beau-coup cool and super-artsy notebook they all seemed to have weren't you? ;D

I don't know about that. I don't know what a "beau-coup cool and super-artsy notebook" looks like.  :tellme:

My 8th grade history teacher made fun of me for "writing with a log" till he actually saw my notebook. He thought it was the most magnificent notebook he had ever seen and wanted to know where I bought that pen (he wanted to buy them in bulk for all of his students)

I used almost all 10 colors, drew related doodles every so often, anything to make recall easier.

Never had to study for a test in my life. If I couldn't remember an answer, I just tried to remember what color the answer was, what doodle was next to it, where on the page it was, etc. and the answer would just come to me, as if I had the notes right in front of me.

You could say that every test was an "open notes" test for me, even though my notes were in my locker. One of the advantages of being a very visual person.

My daughter did something similar (I taught her well), but she was lucky enough to also have access to double ended highlighters, that contained 2 different colors of ink.  :)

The first and last example would work for what I was doing. (the other 2 are not good for memorization) The last example is closer to what I was doing, if you throw in more text colors.  :)
