Numbers in Shorthand?

Do you write out your numbers in shorthand or in longhand?  I know with months and dates it's easier to write the number in longhand (at least that's what my book had last night), for example June 8.  But some numbers can look like shorthand.  The number 2 can look like "we are" in Diamond Jubalee, at least for me with my writing.  And 6 could look like "pay" for me... So if you were writing down something like "we need 6 pens" how would you write the number 6?  I can't remember what I had learned and I know in translation it would be 6 not pay... but what's easier for you?
