Notes

1. Gah, need to organize

Categories: MoveToCanada:1Permalink

I really need to sort my things. I vaguely remember seeing my USB key somewhere--must've been my room. I'll start that later. First, I'll pack all the things I can donate or throw away...

2. Office supplies shopaholic

My name is Sacha Chua and I'm an office supplies shopaholic. I find it nearly impossible to pass a bookstore without checking out the index cards and notebooks in stock.

Today I bought two small plastic cases.

A good size for scrapbook material: photos, receipts, tickets... No more digging around in my bag for things to scrapbook!

(Hmm. Thinking about it now, I could have also survived with a Ziplock(tm) packet.)

Okay. Maybe I can store art materials in it. Or cards. Yeah, it's a good size for stationery. That's it.

(You know you have it bad when you think of reasons _after_ you buy the thing...)

On my way out of the school supplies stand, I found my fingers inexplicably rifling through the notebooks on display. I picked up a Stradmore notebook composed of eight thin notebooks held together with pins. Here's the side view:

A light bulb went off in my head. This is perfect for journal-writing! I can keep a journal along with my work notes (eliminating the need for a separate album) and then simply re-file them. If I use a mini-notebook for letters to Dominique, I can mail the whole mini-notebook to him when I'm done.

I had a hard time deciding between a small notebook that could fit in my purse and a medium-size notebook that gave me more room to write, but I eventually decided on the medium-size notebook.

Why?

Because it had "girl" written all over it.

Really.

Of course, _after_ I bought it, I reasoned that larger mini-notebooks would be more efficient to store and mail. (Right.)
