    I got a Rhodia bullet journal and it's been quite handy for keeping track of stuff.

    We went to Kinokuniya Seattle yesterday and ugh we could’ve spent hours there. There was a massive selection of pens, inks and notebooks available. They had erasable Uniball pens I want to try, as well as a decent selection of Herbin inks!

    I got a second bullet journal for tracking work stuff, it’s going well so far.

    I was given a pen for late christmas! I love it! I'll post pictures later, but it is hand turned by my friend and is cedar heart taken from dead tree near his property =)

    I'm using my bullet journal for tracking the books I'm reading, my weight, and my Instagram follower count but I'm finding it less useful for day to day stuff. On Sunday I scheduled myself to mop my floors and I didn't do it. I rescheduled it for Monday and I still didn't do it.

    I’ve been writing in my journal when I DO accomplish something. For me that works a little better, I don’t have too much trouble remembering what I need to do, so I don’t need to-do lists, but I enjoy the positive reinforcement from seeing what I have done! So at the end of the day I will write what I did and that helps remind me that yeah, I do a fair bit, even if it wasn’t what I had originally planned to do. :)

    That's a good idea. I also don't really have problems remembering the things I need to do (I didn't forget to mop the floors, I chose not to) but I'm trying to figure out the best way to trick my brain into being more productive. Maybe I need a sticker chart or something.

    I'm scared to use it in case it gets lost or something

    My grandpa had this beautiful fountain pen he made when he was a lad for himself out of amber bocote and oil rubbed bronze that he carried with him at all pens. The very first time my mom and I went to visit my grandparents and brought the dog, the dog got to that pen and obliterated it. It's a damn shame, I've never seen anything like that pen before.

    Anyone interested in doing a sort of pen-pal letter writing thing? I dunno, I've got all this very nice paper and some nice pens and stuff, but nobody to write letters to. Could be fun!

    Edit: Also I have 3 bullet journals and 3 fountain pens now. One of the journals is for work, one is for home/misc stuff, and the third is for tracking videogame bullshit.

    I'd love to have a good reason to write a letter. It would be cool to do a letter exchange thing.

    Okay, well, folks, if you are in fact interested, maybe PM me your address and I'll figure out what to do from there?

    Except for @Janson. I know where you live

    Edit: Peas, do you think you could edit the title of the thread to reflect that and see if other folks want in?

    I edited the title but feel free to ask me to change to what you folks want eh, I still have not thought of a nice one haha
    edit: I will also be fine if anyone wants to take over and make a new thread so they can have more control over it

    I have honed my letter-writing skills by playing Animal Crossing since the Gamecube era. I will try to squeeze a t-shirt or a piece of furniture into each envelope I send.

    Ah shit now I’m gonna have to improve my calligraphy, huh?

    We’ve started exchanging letters with my family! My dad just sent me this photo of a painting he’s mailed to Niko:

    I figure I’ll at least leave signups up till Friday because I have had... one person send me their address so far. Also in case anyone else sees this thread and thinks it might be fun!

  • XaquinXaquin Right behind you!Registered User regular
    I would have no idea what to write!

  • MorivethMoriveth BREAKDOWN BREAKDOWN BREAKDOWN BREAKDOWNRegistered User regular
    Neither would I! Who cares? It’s just a fun thing to do!
