I use a pen and paper at least once a week when I'm at university but as I'm on a computing-based course I use computers a lot more than a pen and paper. When I'm at home I almost never use a pen and paper, I used to occasionally use them for taking down notes but now I usually have a laptop near me which I find it easier to make and store notes on.

Whenever I take notes at school or I am doing math I use pen and paper. Otherwise? Not ever.

No, not even when I was in school. My handwriting was so illegible, that I convinced basically every teacher past grade 3 to let me type everything. Personally, I like it better anyway, it's faster, cramps hands less, and looks more professional. 
 
I like how good handwriting can look, but I'll never do it myself. Even little notes I use a text editor or stickies on my computer.

Like has been said, pretty much every day of the week at school taking notes... outside of school, occasionally for jotting down little notes, lists, whatever... nothing big, though.

Every day, there is always some reason to use a pen and paper in my daily life.

Often.

Everyday for me. I am a courier and we use pen and paper for most things, not this electronic signature crap UPS have

Not very often. Mainly because of my unreadable handwriting.

only if i need to at school. If there are computers in the room i will go and use that, if there are notes on the board, I just read them to myself. If i am really lazy i take out my iphone and take a picture of the board.

High school, so about 1/2 of my daily life.

I always start my work reports with pen and paper, find it easier to sort it out then.

I use a pencil and paper all the time

Uhh... often. Almost every day, since I'm in college. Though, I generally write with pencil, but if I'm at home, I'll use pens to write stuff down on post-it notes.

Everyday but much less so when I'm at home for the holidays, there's less reason to write then.

Every single day, except for weekends (sometimes).  High school requires it.  I much prefer typing on a keyboard because it's much more efficient, though.

pretty much every single day.

Only twice a week when I've doing tutoring with middle school students.  Unless you count my use of pencils in marking up my reading materials, which I guess I do fairly often.  But other than that, I haven't used pen and paper since my sophomore year of college.

Unless I'm playing Mega Man or doing some mad collecting in a game I only use pen and paper 5 days a week.

On a daily basis. Last year I wrote a whole novel using pen and paper. I just find it easier to use, easier to look at, easier to edit manually because you can just scribble stuff all over the show and it don't matter.

Everyday, but usually in small note type doses.
 
I also use it for Interviews and such.

I still like to lay down or sit down in a quiet place and just right random thoughts. I'm also a huge fan of making lists and it's easier to do those (and more fun) with pen and paper. I always carry a small pad and pen to write notes of random things to check out or remember. I def. agree that sometimes the thoughts flow a bit better when writing them out then when sitting in front of the computer.
