Notebooks for the representative from the Institute

2 02 2010

Two of my favorite notebooks right now! "Cardinal Notes" from Mikko.

MY FRIENDS used to tease me by referring to me as the “Representative from the Institute.”  Having come from some of the finest universities in the country, they one day pointed out in jest that I was the only one in the group to have come from an “Institute.”  But I have to say, proudly so.  All these years, all I’ve done has been to “strive for the fame and the glory, of the M and the I and the T.”

I got reminded of my alma mater early last week when a friend I made at the office – Mikko, one of our interns – gave me a couple of his “Cardinal Notes” from school years 2007–2008 and 2008–2009.  I don’t mind the outdated-ness the least.  All I have been looking for lately were notebooks to help manage my random thoughts and observations day in and day out.

And these notebooks more than fit the bill.  I love how my blue ballpoint pen’s tip runs on the surface of the paper, as if a hockey player making lines and loops on an unimpeded sweep of thick ice.  Going for the kill.

Thanks, Mikko!
