I ♥ Moleskine!Who would have thunk that the old tech geek that I am would one day go back to pen and paper?? Not me. I avoided pens and paper like the plague... I hated to notate notes, scribble on stickies, or write on white. Jotting down thoughts seemed to be too much of an effort, and so outdated compared to all the tech toys that are available today. Plus, my super awesome brain power never quit on me - who needs notes anyway, when you have as much brain power as I do??
The unavoidable happened. I got old. My brain doesn't retain as much information as it used to do (or maybe it retains too much crap so there's not enough room for the important stuff - beats me), and I've been forgetting more and more important things. So I should record some of these important things, no? But jotting down notes on a touchscreen device isn't as fast or as practical as it's supposed to be. Even with a keyboard, it just is more complicated than just grabbing a pen and starting to write. Yes. I had to admit it to myself (and my co-workers, who have been telling me all along): I need to take more written notes. Yet, I'm still allergic to sticky notes and spiral bound notepads.
Moleskine to the rescue. Moleskine notebooks aren't spiral bound. They aren't glued together and fall apart the first time you open them. They are stitched like real books and can take a beating, and they are a joy to look at and to hold in your hand. I got myself a red one, and I have it at my desk. And what do you know? I actually use it. ALL THE TIME. I write down stuff and when I don't need to remember anymore, I just cross it out. Very satisfying. I still love my iPhone. I am still on my computer all day, but my notebook is right beside me.
