Although technically, it’s just one thing – a Moleskine Plain Pocket-sized Notebook.
I never really knew about the snotty, artistic hype (eg: rambling artfags) behind these things, though from the moment I spotted them on the shelf, I suddenly had the urge to get one. It’s not the most economic notebook one can buy, given the roughly 15 dollar price tag, 800 Pesos in my case, which translates to about Php 4.20 a page. Quite a lot considering that’s half the jeepney fare. However, the pocket-perfect dimensions (at least, for my jacket which I wear every single day), sleek business-black design, and
hard leather cover oilcloth-covered cardboard cover (hard, yet flexible) called out to me, and I ended up buying it orz. It actually took me about 3 whole minutes to pick between the regular and reporter, and another 5 between the ruled and plain, but the plain won out because of the fact that I might draw or scribble on it too.
As of now, I haven’t written a thing in it, in fear of ruining its immaculate cream-yellow pages, but I figure it’d be a good place to jot down good thoughts for entries, ideas for papers (mostly English and CLE since we don’t really have a say in regards to what we write about for submission), or just anything really smart-sounding that I might end up forgetting.
And yes, I have glasses. No, they don’t have any gradation on them – just a rosy tint.
Edit: ugh, brainslip on the cover.
