Stationery – my slight obsession

Hello lovelies💜

I am very excited for today’s post! I’ve been wanting to make this idea a reality for a little bit now and I finally got around to it this week.

I have an obsession with stationery. I love pens, pencils, journaling, markers, erasers, just to mention a few. Through my obsession, I have come up with a list of my favorite stationery that I use on a daily basis – it will change your life.

I have a very high standard for what stationery I use. I’m not talking about the paper to write letters on (although I have very high standards for that as well) rather pens, pencils, i.e. office supplies. If I try to write/do assignments with stationery I dislike, I get distracted more easily or just get discouraged in general (seriously. I’m not joking). I would NOT SURVIVE without these items I will be sharing with you. I’ll include the links to where you can buy these (although this is not sponsored) !

Will this post change your life just as much as it did mine? Optimistically yes. Will you realize the importance of quality stationery and never be able to go back? Most definitely.

Hello, beautiful persons.

I have been homesick for Japan lately… I miss my family and the entire enviornment there. In case you’re new here or just didn’t know, my mom’s entire side of the family is in Japan. Like, everyone. She is the only person from her family in the States. Which makes me half Japanese(side note: the way Japan has things right now, when I turn 22 I have to choose Japanese citizenship or American citizenship because they don’t allow dual citizenship. Petition!! Please.). I’ve been privileged enough to be able to experience elementary and junior high there, and there are a lot of differences between Japanese schools and American schools. A disclaimer, though, when I say “experienced” school in Japan, I’ve attended for about 2 weeks every summer.  Also, this is all based off of what happened to me and the schools I went to. I’m sure there are different things and more similar things about schools in Japan and US depending on where you go:) Fun fact: I actually visited a Japanese school before an American school! (granted, it was a kindergarten tour thingy…) So here is Japan vs USA schooling! Comment/like if you think I should make Japan vs US a series!
