For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an obsession with pens. Felt tip, gel, fountain. Those are my favorites, but I’m also known to have a few ballpoints scattered in there. As a kid, I was known to have mugs bulging with pens randomly placed in shelves around my room. Apparently, that hasn’t changed as I’ve gotten older, because my pen and pencil holder on my desk is totally full of pens. So much so, that I can barely pull one out or put one back in.
Colorful pens make mundane meeting notes less mundane.
“Good” pens, the ones that write with hardly any pressure/effort, make my hand hurt less when taking notes and [best of all] are most flattering to my handwriting.
So, if you need to add a little color to your life, grab a pen and doodle for a bit. I promise it will brighten your day, if only for a few seconds.
