One thought on “What’s in my Bag? Campus Visit Spring 2021 Edition

  1. My pen case is a Clairefontaine Basic green leather pencil case. In it I have:

    Pentel Sharp mechanical pencil .7 (x2) — I have used these since I was an undergraduate and have a couple floating around that I’ve actually had since grad school (ca. 1996/8); in normal times, I collect hard copies of student papers and grade them with these. Also use them for writing in books.

    Pentel Clic eraser (x2)

    Zebra disposable fountain pens, blue & purple — I hardly ever use these, other than occasionally for correspondence. I always think I want to be a person who writes with fountain pens, but I never enjoy writing with them and hate the way my writing looks when I use them.

    Pilot G-2 .7 blue — my go-to. I use black for work/official stuff, but I favor blue for any personal writing, or did until I found out about blue-black!

    jump drive (I never use this, not sure why I have it)

    Essentials grid-lined A5 notebook w/ Pilot Juice .5 (from Tokyo Pen Shop blue black sample set) — this is my commonplace book for personal writing (non-journal type), notes on books I’m reading, quotes, drafting playlists, etc. This was an experiment — for years (decades) I used composition books for this purpose. I’m getting to the end of this hardback A5, and I’m not sure whether I’ll get another or go back to comp books. I love the A5 size for portability, but sometimes the pages aren’t big enough for my purposes.

    Hobonichi Techo planner w/ Zebra Sarasa Clip .5 (from Tokyo Pen Shop blue black sample set) — I had been doing a bullet journal style planner using Leuchhturm1917, but I found that having to create the layouts became an impediment to my actually using it as a planner. When I saw your video with the Hobonichi, I thought it would be a perfect in-between, and it is. I can use it exactly the way I’d been doing the bullet journal, but the pages are already created and dated. I love it!

    I’m posting a picture of this on Twitter. 🙂

    I know the podcast was a lot of work, but it brought me (and others, I’m sure) such joy! I hope you’ll have the time and motivation to do another volume!
