Inevitably, I'll need to take loads and loads of notes so that when it comes to revision time, I'm not still catching up on note-taking. For this, I'll need notebooks and I will be using these two Leuchtturm 1917 notebooks and also these B5 Muji ones for the smaller topics. I'm prone to changing my mind at the last moment when it comes to notebooks though so don't be surprised if I blog about a different notebook in the coming months.
To write in these notebooks, I'll be using Muji gel pens and Pilot Juice gel pens for titles and to add a bit of colour, with Zebra Mildliners used predominantly for highlighting. Other pens that may also make an appearance are Staedtler Fineliners and Uniball Eye rollerballs. There is also an increasing amount of fountain pen in my notes now and I am making a prediction that they will be my primary writing tool by the end of this academic year.
Finally, no arsenal is complete without post-it notes. These smaller sized ones at the top are great for my revision notes and the Martha Stewart ones at the bottom are just too adorable not to be included in this post. I do like the pastel colour of them too - nothing worse than bright fluorescent, harsh-on-the-eye colours when revising.
Unfortunately, no new stationery this academic year but I have a ridiculous amount of supplies to still get through which meant I couldn't justify splashing out. That's not to say I won't order a few bits and bobs during the year (like I did last year) but for now, I'm content with using what I have. (Plus, I'm on a self-enforced stationery and clothes shopping ban until the second week of November - with the exception of ink if I am desperately running out.)
