Uni-ball Signo Needle 0.38 – a review

Uni-ball Signo Needle

I dislike Signos DX but to be honest I don’t know why. Maybe it’s the conical tip of the DX? Maybe the overall design of the pen – a soulless barrel with the barcode on it? Or maybe the cap which is less convenient than my clickable Zebra?

I also don’t like the standard blue and black inks. They are just plain boring. There might be one more reason, though – my ex loved to use them, but that’s another story for another time. Continue reading “Uni-ball Signo Needle 0.38 – a review”

Pilot Acroball 0.7

TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Blue

TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Blue

TWSBI have just announced that it will release a new color of Diamond Mini AL on March 17th. This time  Mini AL will come in beautiful blue, and I love blue!

Probably, as usually, it will be a limited edition, so if you like it you should get it as soon as possible.

I will probably get one and I will write about it in the future, but for now I still have many other products to write about, so bear with me 🙂

Before we get into the idea of bullet journal, let’s establish one thing first. Contrary to what you may think or hear from phony life-coaches most of the time management solutions don’t work.  Bullet journals don’t work. To-do lists don’t work. Buying a new app or tool doesn’t work either.  Holding meetings is even worse.

There is a lot of research behind these claims but I won’t get into details about time management in corporations – this blog is not about that. The point is, for me bullet journal as a time management solution is useless. Continue reading “Why bullet journaling is not working (for me)”
