A blog about pens?!
I’m a 19 year old student and I have an ambition to study medicine at university and become a doctor. However, much like my interest in science, in particular disease and the human body, I have always had an appreciation for stationery. I remember when my local stationery store shut down when I was 8 or 9 and I was absolutely distraught (turns out it was being refurbished – all is okay 10 years down the line). GCSEs hit and I needed a pen that would get me through those two hour English exams so I would search high and low for the perfect pen and notebook combination. For a long time it was a Pilot V7 refillable gel pen, but now it’s a fountain pen with a Leuchtturm Master notebook.
For me, pens are a unique hobby with an incredibly caring and welcoming community. It offers me the respite from studying that I need to prevent myself from burning out. I love this hobby so much that I want to share it with the world and document it throughout university. How my pens change, my inks, my notebooks and most importantly: ensuring I stay on the analogue side of things. I feel proud when I pull out a notebook and have a plethora of pens in my blazer jacket when others are pulling out their tablets and their laptops in class.
So I hope you’ll join me on my journey. I will try my best to keep my reviews as frequent as possible. If anyone wishes to contact me, you can find me on all the usual places – just search for 7heDaniel and you’ll find me! If you wish for longer correspondence, you can email me at 7heDaniel@gmail.com and I’ll typically reply within an hour or two. I am open to recommendations for future reviews.
