After that painful fall (pun intended) of my beloved Pilot Metropolitan, I couldn’t bear to just throw it away. Replacing the nib and/section was my only option, since getting the nib repaired would cost more than the pen itself. And as much as I love it to bits, I am not so carefree with my money as to go through with that option.
What the hell kind of an afternoon/early evening was that? It seemed as if I sucked up all the negative vibes and bad luck within a ten-mile radius. And it all started with my beloved fountain pen…

Sometime last week, I saw this post about intermittent fasting (IF) when a friend posted it on our group chat:
⏰Intermittent Fasting isn’t really a diet but more of an eating strategy. By restricting the…
Now, to start off, I recently lost some weight starting when I had braces, and then got sick on and off for about a month last year. From my heaviest weight of ~54 kg, I went down to around 46-47 kg at the lightest. Currently, I’ve gained a little bit and now weigh around 47-48 kg. I plan to stabilize and keep my weight that way.
My current bullet journal is an A5 softcover Victoria’s Journal dotted notebook. It’s got 40 leaves / 80 pages of 80 gsm cream paper, which is sufficient enough for daily use but could use some improvements. Being a pretty thin notebook with thin pages, it’s a lot more susceptible to damage from everyday wear than, say, a hardbound dotted notebook like Scribbles That Matter or Leuchtturm1917.
As it is part of my EDC, I need it to last me the whole year, or at least until it runs out of pages. Being thrown into different bags every other day is not exactly conducive to its lasting me as long as I need it to. The solution? A sturdy notebook cover. This is where the Kokuyo Systemic Refillable Notebook Cover comes into play.
From the start of the year, I have been using an adapted version of the Alastair Method for my weeklies, that is, a weekly running log. I find it efficient and space-saving, perfect for someone like me who doesn’t really have a lot of things going on that need to be logged. I can’t sing enough praises to the people who thought this up.
So why am I changing format now if it works so well for me?
