I know how ridiculous this sounds, but pens make me happy. I’m an organizing, list-making, color coding machine, so I’ve always kept a variety of pen colors/highlighters within an arms reach. I also just think they’re fun to look at and make doodling (I’m convinced I focus better while doing this) 100x better.
In elementary school (and even high school) my classmates and I prided ourselves on our personalized ‘pencil boxes’ filled with gel pens that we toted around on top of our binders from class to class (does everyone do this?). I don’t know what happened to mine, which is incredibly depressing, because I spent hours carefully picking out the newest colors and ended up graduating with quite the collection.
These days, I decorate my desk with colored sharpies and have a plethora of markers/crayons/colored pencils, but lately I’ve been lusting for more. Not just for function, but also for accessory!
