pilot precise


Layout for March!

Good month so far, I’m falling a little into a procrastination slump when it comes to work that’s due wayyy in the future, but I’m sure to pick back up when I don’t feel as grossly sick as I do right now.

My tracker definitely has helped me reduce my bingeing this month, I’ve been more in control of myself than I have been in a long time!

i get lots of questions about what kinds of pens i use, so i thought i’d make a post for convenience :’’) the x’s are links to posts where i’ve used the pen.

  • sakura pigma micron 01 (0.25mm) - i usually don’t like using pens with tips smaller than 0.5mm since i feel like i’m scratching the paper with them, but microns are felt tip so i can deal with it (heh). i like using this pen for when i have to cramp a lot of information in a small space. (x)
  • pilot precise v5 (0.5mm) - I LOVE THESE PENS!! A+ ink flow, crisp lines, and a v smooth writing experience. it takes a while for the ink to dry sometimes, so i use these mostly for when i’m rewriting notes instead of in-class notes. (x, x, x, x, x)
  • muji gel ink ballpoint (0.5mm) - i’m gonna be honest, i bought my first pack of muji pens about a month after i started my studyblr because everyone had them. but!! for all the hype they get, they are nice pens. v smooth & lots of color options!! my only qualms are that they run out of ink pretty fast and the ink tends to smear if you highlight over it. (x, x, x)
  • pentel rsvp fine (0.7mm) - my go-to pen for in-class notes! the ink doesn’t smear very much, which is excellent because i’m one of those people that writes everything down (oops). definitely not the best pen ever, but it does its job well. ALSO it has a grip which makes it v comfortable to write with!! (i started using it when i was making this review sheet, except it ran out of ink halfway through and i switched to using a bic cristal pen)
  • paper mate inkjoy 100 (1.0mm) - my other in-class notes pen! i use it less than the rsvp because it likes to transfer onto my hand more, but the ink is darker and it’s a wider pen. i’ll usually use it when i have to fill up more space and don’t want to write as much heh :^) (x, x)
  • uniball signo um-153 (1.0mm) - v nice if you’re looking for a pen that writes boldly and thickly!! i bought this pen not too long ago, so i haven’t written with it that much yet, but i’ll probably use it for headings or something like that (x)

FUN FACT these are all capped pens… i stay away from retractable pens because i’m one of those people that clicks them constantly if i have one in my hands (ㅠᴗㅠ)


What’s in my pencil case?

In the flap section i keep my basics:

  • Pilot precise V5 pen
  • Muji correction pen
  • Muji mechanical pencil
  • Muji retractable ballpoint pen
  • black pilot juice pen

In the back, I keep all of my colored pens and extras

  • Pilot juice .5 mm pens
  • Flash drive
  • Muji acrylic ruler
  • extra pencil in case someone needs to borrow one

which pen type should you use? (based on the angle and pressure you write with, and texture and aesthetic preference)

a series of infographics by me! 

pen recommendations for each type under the cut!

I get asks about what kind of pens I use for my bujo. So here is literally every pen/markers I use and own.

• Pilot V5 Precise Rolling Ball •
Great for everyday use. I use it during lectures as well for note-taking - although it does take a while to set and if you’re not exactly careful, you’ll get smudges. But still my fave.

• Faber-Castell PITT Calligraphy Pen •
Mainly for titles. Great for those who are just beginning to venture into calligraphy. I actually just talked my best friend into buying one because she wants to get into bullet journaling.

• Staedtler Permanent Lumocolor S •
I use this for writing on washi tape because everything else tends to rub off. It’s great for little details.

• Manuscript CalliCreative Italic in Silver •
Used for designs and accents. I also use this for dark washi tapes because I haven’t found a white pen that works over dark washi. Yet.

• Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen •
This is actually my first experience with brush pens and I. Love. It! I only have one color so far, Medium Skin 116, but I will be buying more!

• Ad Markers •
I have soooo much of these markers. (As you can see in the red box.) They’re amazing for drawing and coloring but the biggest set-back (for me) is that they bleed right through the page. No matter how high quality the paper is.

• Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 0.3mm •
I recently just got these and I’m already in love with them! They write so nicely and smoothly - it’s a complete dream. I was actually very reluctant to buy these but after seeing Bilan’s (@studyfulltime) bujo spreads, I was convinced.

So yeah… There you go guys. Let me know if you have any more questions. I’m friendly 😊.

What’s in my pencil pouch?
-pouch: I’m not sure where this is from I got it in the tenement museum in New York and it’s the best one I’ve ever had
-yoobi pencil sharpener: this works amazingly well, it’s also the best pencil sharpener I’ve had so far and I got it for under a dollar at target
-sharpie highlighters: available almost anywhere; they’re good but I really want the midliners
-pilot precise V5s: my favorite black pens
-pencils: I use both regular #2 and a .7 mechanical
Stabilos: these don’t technically fit in my pouch but they’re part of my gear and I take them everywhere! Highly recommended!!


Recent stuff:

Sketch of a monster’s head done with ink &
brush. The same sumi-e ink I got from Blick in KC this weekend.

Did some preliminary artwork for a local band I might provide stuff for regarding their upcoming ep. This was sketched on a paper bag with Sharpies and paint marker.

Drew on both sides of a napkin when out drinking and playing card games with a new friend of mine! Just using my favorite default pen, the Pilot Precise V5.

may 19 // day 1 of cleaning & organizing my desk //
I emptied out all of my pencil cases from my many different bags along with all of the pen holders I have scattered around my room – this was the result
As you can see I have a weird affinity with the Pilot Precise roller balls–especially the blue ones. I’ve seriously used those types of pens since 7th grade and will never stop. I have to order them by the box on Amazon because I use them so much (and I lose the majority of them so it’s good to have back ups)
this picture isn’t even including my new Staedtler pens either! 🙈
also good news: I found like 3 lipsticks and a couple lip liners mixed in with my stuff–a couple of which I had accepted as long gone (and now they’re back in my life – yay for cleaning!)
now time to put these babies in some pretty containers!


Now that I actually have some color and content in my bullet journal, I wanted to post some pictures. It’s still a work in progress; I ordered some new pens a few days ago and I think I’m gonna start color coding my classwork once they come in. I’m really proud of what I have so far though!

I’m using a large squared Moleskine journal and Pilot Precise V5 pens.


Three weekend sketches in a mid-sized sketchbook.

Top: Alternate reality Andy Capp

Middle: An idea about an alien creature that bonds with your face to give you some rad powers, but then makes you look like you have cartoon googly eyes because the creature does.

Bottom: Started out as a redesign of Firestorm…but now he looks like he’s made of wood. Maybe that’s why his head is always on fire. Wood IS rather flammable, after all.
