The week before school started was always the best part of the year. Nothing like a brand-spanking new spiral notebook, ready to be filled with all my class notes, doodles and random thoughts….positively brimming with possibility. I got to relive that feeling when I went back to grad school – buying my spirals every semester and lining the pages with notes in my orderly, ultra fine point black Sharpie script.
Mead Five-Star are definitely the best, the plastic front cover takes a beating, I dig the interior pockets for reference materials and it must be college-ruled, natch.
Now that I’m way past my school days, I buy and maintain new spirals for blog entries, personal projects, work reference, etc. It’s still just as satisfying to impart some new-found knowledge to the pages.
