One of my favorite parts of the school year (apart from breaking off school for the summer) was going out to buy the stationary I would need for the next year. I would often even do this before the end of the first week of summer break.
If I go missing in a supermarket, you can guarantee I am either down the gadget aisle, or more likely just stood staring at the stationary.
Pass me a brochure from staples or viking direct and it could be easily be mistaken that I had been given a porno mag of semi clad beautiful women. (I kid, obviously I am not that bad, but I am very content for a large amount of time)
I have no idea why I am like this. It’s just the way I have always been. I was once told by a Nurse I worked with whilst a student that obsessions with stationary shows an organised mind.
I had a massive clear out a few weeks ago. And reluctantly threw many a notebook and pen away. In an attempt to declutter my room. There were dozens, some full, some semi full, some I hadn’t even used (I didn’t throw these away, I gave them away to people who may use them). I actually somewhat regret this decision to throw them out now. Oh well my collection is slowly rebuilding itself.
You can guarantee I always have a pen and notepad on me. Simply because you never know when you may need to jot something down. There are 2 I specifically always have on me. One for work. Where I jot down whats happening on the shift so when it comes to writing the daily reports, If I have forgotten anything its only a read away.
I also have a general notebook I carry about. My little black, that isn’t black book. For my general listings (yes I tend to write in lists) within My little black, that isn’t black book are several ideas for blog posts.
Although I don’t actually know the where about’s of this book is at the moment. And it does have several ideas in for posts. Hence the reason I have ended up writing an entire post on stationary. I am mourning the loss of my little black, that isn’t black book. (It’s actually Blue. Just in case you are wondering)
