Those permanently blue fingers, scratching on paper and time it took to dry! Oh how we hated it, couldn't wait to get to 5th grade to get a ballpoint pen!

However, by some mysterious coincidence, I got to videos about fountain pens and they persuaded me that perhaps it would give a very personal touch to my dream diary that I started recently. I'll also use it for taking notes from books.

So I went to the store today and bought a pen for 25€ which is quite a lot compared to ordinary pens but it's relatively cheap in the world of fountain pens. Plus it can last for decades as it is refillable. And you can use different colours of ink.

And guess what, it is totally fine, no scratching, no blue fingers, it glides smoothly and perhaps my handwriting looks a bit nicer :-)

So in case anyone is looking for an idea on how to make your BoS, journal, diary etc special, I definitely recommend this kind of pen :-)
learning calligraphy is also a good idea

Yes, definitely. I envy those people who can do it. I don't have the patience. Maybe once I will get to it.
Can you do calligraphy, CD?

I'm having a very hard time feeling grateful for anything today...
So right now, I am grateful for my new soap that smells like so amazing it blows my mind and some awesome glitter paint I bought last night.

that's all I have night now.

I am grateful for a new, exciting, and a little scary job opportunity that had been offered to me.
I am grateful for my current boss who was nothing but supportive and excited for me when I told him that I had to cut my hours at my current job.
I am grateful that I have an opportunity to stay home from work today so that I can take care of a friend who needed to have surgery.

I am grateful for sharp cheeses and red wine.
