Charles Dickens once wrote that ‘there was something very comfortable in having plenty of stationery’. The man wasn’t wrong.
We love stationery – maybe a little too much. There’s never not a good reason to buy that extra notebook or get a back-up of your favourite pen in case it runs out on you.
Stationery fan too ? We think you’ll relate to a few of these…
- The most exciting part about a new year is buying a new planner.
- And the most exciting part of the year in general is back to school / college / work stationery shopping.
- Having a favourite stationery store that you spend way too much time (and money) in.
- But who cares? Buying stationery makes you feel like you’ve got your life together.
- Being torn between starting a new notebook or leaving it to sit and look pretty.
- Deciding to start said notebook but making sure to practise your handwriting before making your first mark.
- Then completing said notebook and feeling like you’re ready to level up in life.
- The dilemma of having to choose between being a nice person and lending a pen to a friend and wanting to protect your pen like it’s your first born child.
- Dealing with the betrayal of lending said pen and it coming back with a chewed lid. The monster.
- Watching calligraphy videos as a form of meditation. So smooth. So relaxing.
- Then feeling unaccomplished and frustrated that you can’t write like that.
- But that’s still not enough to stop you from spending £££ on a new calligraphy set. After all, stationery is life.
