This is the third winter I’ve experienced in my entire life. Since this is the season in which it takes little to no effort to feel the blues (yes, northeast winters could definitely do that to you), I find it helpful to cling to and focus on the things–big or small–that we are grateful for. The things that bring us joy.
That make us happy.
Obviously, top of the list is my darling Timmybee.
Aside from him though, today is dedicated to the joy that my new purchase brought to my life (and yes, when all else fails, there’s shopping).
Let me introduce you to the wonderful thing that is the Pilot Hi-Tec-C that writes in 0.25 mm. Think about F-I-N-E lines!
From my earliest years of note-taking inside a classroom, I’ve discovered that I have a preference for pens that require the littlest of pressure to create beautiful thin lines. I don’t know why exactly this gives me joy. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m saving space because of the thin lines. Maybe because I’m a lazy writer who wants to put the smallest of effort into placing ink into paper. Maybe because I could create a lot of small details when I try to doodle with it when I’m bored listening to the teacher.
Maybe it’s all of those. Or maybe it’s just because.
We often don’t have control over which things give us a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Sometimes it’s achieving something you’ve been working for for years. Or finding your soulmate.
Sometimes though, it’s as simple as finding that ultra-mega-king of pens.
