Pen and Paper for 2022

I’ve been a black-ink guy for years, favoring the Bic Velocity Retractable Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point (1.0 mm). For 2022, I’m switching back to blue ink for the first time since … college?

For the last half of the 2021 I used a spiral notebook but am shifting back to legal pads in the new year, specifically the TOPS Docket Gold (8-1/2″ x 11-3/4″) with 50 sheets per pad.

The paper itself certainly lives up to its billing as a “premium writing pad” but who am I kidding? It’s way too premium for my scribblage, but I have three pads left so I’ll finish them up. Then I will go with the store-brand variety at Staples or OfficeMax. Or, maybe I’ll go with a notebook that has the spiral at the top, giving me the best of both worlds.
