Post-Graduate University and Stationery

1:03 PM

Earlier this month, I've finally received a letter from my chosen university that I had been accepted into their post-graduate program. I was overjoyed and the same time a bit relieved since it's the only university I've applied to. I know, I should have had a back-up university, but it was the only one that offered a fellowship at a community college.

After getting the admissions letter, I began prepping for the Fall Trimester. I knew I needed different coloured pens and Pilot Frixon highlighters, though I've already have them. My first stop was Staples where I purchased these items.

I love using the Pentel Energel pens since they write smooth and does not smudge easily. I was using this brand in my Filofax a few years back (along with others as I experimented with what pens would work). I stopped using them since I wanted the ability to erase any mistakes I make when writing in my Filofax, so I opted for the Frixion Pens. Although I can erase pretty much everything I write in my Filofax, I still cross things out when it's cancelled.

With the Pilot Frixion Highlighters, I absolutely love them since I can highlight and erase if I've gone too far on the text. Back in the late 1990s, I've discovered an erasable highlighter by Crayola and I've been hooked since. So when I found the Pilot Frixion Highlighters several years ago, I bought a packet since they had colours other than yellow.

I also purchased refills for my Pilot Frixion pens since I use the black one in my Filofax quite regularly.

Now that I'm in post-graduate university, I've started to think about the way I plan in my Filofax and the many stationery items I've purchased over the years.

Since acquiring more stationery stuff, I've decided to put it on a wicker basket on top of my desk so I can start using it up. I know it doesn't look like I've got a lot in there, but trust me, I do. And last week, I purchased some tabs from Tuesday Morning.

I've also somehow acquired quite a bit of washi/paper tape and I know there is no chance I'll be able to use this all up

As much as I want to use washi tapes and stickers to decorate my inserts in my Filofax, I'm going to have to refrain as I need to see what I have going on in the week. Thesis, research and homework must be on the forefront of my Filofax rather than have it littered with cute decoration.  So, today, I'm going to revise my Filofax set up for the coming season. I'll post about that this coming week.

I'm also going to take a cue from Angela at PaperLoveStory and add my journey through post-graduate university.

So for now, ta-ta and I hope you had a great weekend!
