When I was a child, I loved school supplies, not so much school, but oooh the supplies!
The pens that felt just right in my hands, the binders, the small floppy exercise books that filled up fast so I could get new ones mid-year!
Those are still my favourite note books. They fit easily in any bag, they’re light, and they lack the specialness of the fancy notebooks, so they’re easy to mark up without concern over whether what I’m filling them with is any good.
I can be me with these notebooks.
