20/04/17 || it’s mid-sem break y’all! i survived the first half of my first semester at university! i’ve finished almost everything that i wanted to achieve during this break, but i still have a few bits and pieces to do.
on a separate note, i hope you’re all doing well! stay motivated x
I went out to get my new stationary over the last couple of weeks and I’ve finally collected (nearly) everything I’ll need for the fall term. I’ll still have to buy some squared notebooks, but the ones use are boring, plain old squared notebooks and they’re also not particularly pretty, so I’ll probably just buy them a few days into the semester..
The first thing I got were the Stabil Boss Pastel highlighters and they’re gorgeous. I had the Pilot Frixion ones last semester, but I don’t use them anymore since they dried out extremely fast and got lighter and lighter, until they were really hard to see on paper.
I also got some gel ball point pens in various colors which I’ve grown very fond of. They’re not from any particular brand, I just got them in a french supermarket called Super U since they were really affordable. They write really smoothly and without ever drying or leaving drops of paint at the beginning of a letter, which is something really important for me in ballpoint pens. I also got two 0.7mm Gel Point pens in black (only one’s in the pictures). They’re a little thick, as I should have anticipated, but they write really smooth and I like my handwriting with them, so I’m probably going to use them at some point.
The pink and grey notebook is also from Super U. It’s squared inside and otherwise some generic little notebook I’m gonna use to write myself a study guide for developmental psychology next semester.
Lastly, I got a pink folder with a floral design and a big blue envelope with feathers on it to hold my notes before I put them into my big binder. Since I don’t use separate binders for every subject anymore that I carry around, I only take the notes I really need that day and keep them all in a folder. Keeps my bag lighter. :) The envelope will also hold printed journal articles, scripts or other stuff I’ll need. And it has a REALLY CUTE BUTTON to hold it closed! I LOVE IT!!!
