My Old School Papermate
Some pens live in your heart, some pens live in your desk. Thankfully, this one lives somewhere
in between. Those two little hearts have seen a lot.
I really think this might have been the first pen that I really craved writing with back in the day. (Those days were filled with sk8ting, BMX, Ska and general adolescence.) However, I still took my pens very seriously, even if I didn't know what I was writing, I still wanted to enjoy the process and the idea of writing.
(Yes, I actually polished this for the pictures.) I know that times change and some pen styles move on. My tastes in pens have definitely changed (and there's very little Ska music in my iTouch) but I still like to appreciate whatever I am writing with. I can't say I use this pen often, or its in the rotation, but it's good to remember where your roots are and where your habits come from.
This pen is sort of like having a 1974 Volkwagon Superbeetle in the garage. It's cool, fun to take out, but in general, it just sits there. Have a great weekend and I will get to the comments and emails before Monday. Cheers.
