- Field Notes, lined, three-pack. My brother got me these. Better way to take notes on-the-fly compared to the Moleskine Journalist’s Reporter Notebook.
- Pilot G-2, 0.5mm, black. Lisa got me these. They are the most precise and streak-free pens that I use at work, at home, for writing journals.
- Moleskine Journalist’s Reporter Notebook. I recently used this for a journal. Works great with Pilot Pens.
- Pilot G-2, 0.38mm, black. My brother got me these. They are wicked fine in terms of how one’s handwriting looks. For the longest time, I was not into the ultra or extra fine pens but around 2005 I got back into it. Yes, internet, you needed to know that.
- Tops Docket Gold Planning Pad, p.k.a. Cornell Note “Method”, introduced to me by my brother. I had never heard of this method before and started using it this semester at Behrend. Using this note-taking method is winning the lottery to someone who is broke as someone who loves taking notes but has never had a method. There is also a template for Mac users who have Pages. Don’t have a Mac? No big deal, generate your custom PDF here. Nard dog.
- Moleskine Storyboard Notebook. If you don’t have the money to buy this, you don’t need to buy this. Heck, I used to storyboard on an old Mead drawing notebook in the 1990s and paid artists who storyboard for films use other Moleskine drawing notebooks, one of which I should buy for my step-son. Anyway. The second half of this book has two-page scènes to draw. I am not a great illustrator so I used the second half of this book to set up the blocking for a flick I was writing.
I had to send my iPhone 4 because the home button wasn’t working at all. Not a problem because I have movies to watch, textbooks to read for college and Lisa and The Boys have many means to contact me. Even my brother knows and told his wife. My mom said something about the home button not working on her iPhone. But, you know. Angry Birds.
I had to send my phone in today to be repaired (the sleep button won’t “click” anymore). I’m syncing my iPod that I poured water all over a year ago, and magically the screen is working (it was dim before). I’m trying not to get too excited, but this is luuucky.
