    i used to love stationary but then it all changed.

    i got into year 11 (last september) with my gleaming pencil case and my lovely pens and i noticed something as the year progressed.
    MY PENCIL CASE WAS BECOMING MORE AND MORE EMPTY. things were going missing left, right and centre!
    and then i finally realised - when you get to year 11 at my school people cant be bothered to buy stationary. SO THEY STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S.
    not only do they steal, they LIE about stealing. "hey is that my pen you've got there?" "oh noooo dont be silly! i bought this last week!" even my own friends do it to me!

    so, my plan of action this year is to go to school with a clear helix pencil case containing 2 pens, 2 pencils, rubber, a ruler and a highlighter. when all of these items eventually get stolen (which they will) i plan to use/steal everybody elses

    What is the difference between a ring binder and lever arch file?

    Is one smaller than the other?

    Yeh, a lever arch are one of those massive ones where you have to pull up the 'lever' for the rings to open whereas a ring binder are ones you just open with your fingers. Ring binder's spine is about 1-2 inches in width whereas a lever arch file is about 5 inches.

    Yes I am!! I think there may be cheaper options of around £60 but our schools might tell us a specific one to buy...
    The calculators are very cool though. I used one once and I had a lot of fun with it - they're the ones which can draw graphs, right?
    I think so, hopefully our school will get us a discount too then. They seem pretty cool - drawing on a calculator.

    this happens to me EVERY YEAR! I start with a full pencil case full of shiny new things and end the year with a broken protractor half a pencil and a pen if i'm lucky. Someone needs to stop the stationary thieves!!

    Also, does it really annoy anyone else when you lend out pens and
    a) never get them back or;
    b) get them back damp and chewed.
    It really annoys me!!

    Still - back to school stationary ftw! I'm going to whsmith's this afternoon

    I get annoyed lending out stationary full stop lol and if i HAVE to then i give one of my c**p pens like a rubbish biro i hate it when some people have the cheek to SELECT one of my pens like wtf!
    Whenever i used to lend my pen to my friend i would be like "don't chew it. i mean it!" and i think sometimes she would do it on purpose so she could keep the pen lol.
