Work: Goodies from the Mail Room by 3.1

Got to the office this evening for a night shift to find it not only blissfully empty, but one of my lovely colleagues had retrieved a small package for me from the mail room downstairs and it turned out to be a load of lovely goodies from the lovely people from The Journal Shop.

I was after a new Tombow eraser for my Japanese writing practise (which is mostly done in pencil, especially when I’m practising kanji) and the Iconic sticker pads for vocabulary lists are in preparation for getting back into the swing of things for uni. The Midori Traveler’s Notebook refills are for the upcoming trips, though partly to avoid splurging on more stationery than I have the luggage space for when I get to Japan.

I’ve been a regular customer of The Journal Shop for over 7 years now. My very first purchase from them back in 2012 was my Midori Traveler’s Notebook: I bought both sizes as I needed the passport size for work (to use as a train driver’s notebook) and wanted the regular size for journaling/travelling. It’s always so nice to receive stuff from them every now and again.

Ganhar a Vida by 3.1

I’ve sunk to a new low now that I’m being made to watch a film that has opening credits typeset to Comic Sans…

EDIT: To be fair, it was an alright film (despite the use of Comic Sans). It highlighted some of the first generation immigrant discourse and narrative (especially when more than one language is spoken), but Christ… it was depressing.
