[Good evening Blue Monday] If Then

My school project in 1995.

Our school was chosen to have new computers (FM TOWNS) and we got to learn super basic of BASIC... like 5 or 6 commands.


My Favorite Pens

Recently I met lovely people from Germany who share love for stationery. I know Germany has lots of great stationery (LEITZ, Lamy, LEUCHTTURM1917…) but we also have obsessive amount of them in Japan that I believe they would enjoy checking out.

Not sure how many will be interested, but here I list up my 3 favorite and go-to pens for your reference. They are all reasonable and accessible in Japan.

JETSTREAM (Mitsubishi)
It’s light and super smooth. It can keep up with fast writing and perfect for jotting down. I use 0.5 and make sure to stock up.

Ultra smooth. Vivid black color. It’s gel ink pen, but it doesn’t get stuck in the middle of writing. It’s fun to write with this pen. I have several colors in 0.4.

For joy of writing. You can write thin lines and small characters with great control. They have 0.3 to 0.5. I used to use 0.3 in my school days but nowadays 0.4. It sometimes.. or whimsically get stuck though. In that case, you hold the end of the pen and bang the tip area (put cover on) on the book edge or something.

Additional notes for notebook:
For notebook, I’d used pocket size Moleskine for more than a decade and just so enjoyed writing on it with HI-TEC-C. But they discreetly changed its paper and square size several years ago so I switched to MUJI’s. I also recommend MD notebook (MIDORI) if you like cream colored papers. For study, I’m (sorta) faithful to Campus notebook (KOKUYO).


[This must be Thursday] Hello, new era

New imperial era has started in Japan.

Last time our era changed (yes, I'm a Showa-born lady), we were in mourning period and everything moved mechanically. I remember TV anchors were all wearing black, and we quietly received the announcement of new era and its change. And it took some time before we joked about this name of era. (e.g. "What, Heisei? Hey Say?")
