I'll interpret "guy stuff" as "EDC stuff".

u/tsoliman · 89 pointsr/CrappyDesign

In all fairness: Why is this even listed in the "books" section when it should be listed in the "stationary" section?

I mean the seller basically had to fill out a form with the field "Author" and they put "Kikke Mbl14"

Here's a link to that product listed in the correct section:

  1. I'm ex law enforcement, and I worked in Legal for over 15 years. You can try filing a police report, but he hasn't broken any laws. So there is nothing they can do for you.

  2. Your primary supervisor and your HR department are who you should notify. This should be done in writing, either by email or by typed letter.

    In this report you should include:

  • Times and date of contact.

  • What was said, verbatim. Type out clearly and concisely what was said. Write it in a format that it easy to read/follow.

  • If possible, include hard copies of the text conversation.

  • Retain copies of everything you give them.

    Purchase a notebook. A lot will happen, many conversations, and so-on. You will never keep it all straight in your memory.

  • Record the name, job title, and their relation to you, of each person you give documents to.

  • List what documents you give to who, and the date and time you did so.

  • Keep detailed notes of any discussions with anyone regarding this. HR, supervisors, dept. managers, coworkers. (Make these notes after the meetings/conversations. Not in front people while it's taking place.)

  • Never, never give that notebook to anyone except your attorney. It may sound ridiculous, but if you willing relinquish control/possession of that book, they can keep it. (And yes, there is case precedence for this.) If it comes down to supplying something, make photo copies, and redact from them anything not pertinent to what your providing.

  • Do not tell anyone but your attorney about the notebook.

  • Do not speak to this person in any way. If he approaches you, leave. If he follows you, go to a manager's or HR office. Keep notes of the time and date, and the outcome.

  • A little too late for this one: But never tell anyone what your going to do. You're giving them your game plan. I guarantee you this guy is working on a story, and it's going to make all of this your doing. And believe it or not it often works, or at least muddies the waters enough that they'll do nothing.

    This may seem like a lot of work and trouble to go through. It is. But it's nothing compared to the stress and nightmare you could go through if you don't.

Waterproof notepad in the shower.

u/ConnorOlds · 18 pointsr/AskReddit

You know, I would encourage new adults to keep a little something that I like to call "The Captain's Log." It's not so much what it actually is, but what it's actually for. I originally got the idea a few years ago from the character known as "The Judge," from this book. My Captain's Log has so far led me to figure out calculations for racing yachts, inspired new insights into the nature of humanity (which no doubt came to me while I was at a strip club in Guam), and designed a theoretical hull of a blue water sailboat based on Fibonacci numbers (maybe impractical, but still satisfied my curiosity about relating math to yacht design).

So what is The Captain's Log? It's a small notebook that you keep in your backpack, your camera bag, or even your back pocket. You take it with you wherever you go, as long as it's appropriate. For example, here are some places to take it: work, classes, or commuting/traveling. Here are some places not to take it: first dates (or even second, depending on how the first one goes), work lunches, or out to bars when you plan on drinking to forget. Or maybe that last one would be good... I woke up one morning and I had written down, "Give $1 to every person who GETS IT." What did I mean? Did I give money to a lot of people? And what the hell happened that inspired me to write that down?

Anyway, the point is that you keep it to write down random notes and ideas you have, or to use it as a scratch pad. You might say, "Why not just use a Notes application on your phone? That way you're not being a weirdo carrying around a little diary in your pocket."

And I would say:

  • It's not a diary. A diary is something you write a narrative account of your day in, and while that isn't a bad thing, that's not the purpose of The Captain's Log.

  • Instead of writing a narrative of your day, you simply document notes, sketches, or plans, that you think are significant at that moment in time.

  • The purpose of The Captain's Log is to then look back at earlier pages to see what you considered to be significant thoughts or patterns of thinking in the past. (And of course, yacht design!)

    This then allows you to make some revelations about yourself. You get to see how your mind worked, and how it has developed over time. And you see things that you--at one point in time--thought were significant enough to write in your Captain's Log. It also helps keep your ego in check because it will remind you of problems you used to think were huge, but now no longer matter--and that will imply that the huge problems you have right now, really aren't that big of a deal. And hopefully that will improve your relationships with other people as well.

    It also got me laid once. A girl stole it while at a Brewery and wrote a very alluring message on the next open page.

    Here are some links to sample Captain's Logs:

    The good news is, they're all real cheap!

For old-school gamers, THIS was a blank character sheet:

I'd be willing to bet that if I looked in my AD&D 2nd Edition books that are in my attic, I probably have a character or two stuffed in the books, on engineering computation paper.

u/stinkycatfish · 15 pointsr/bicycling

If you are that worried, just measure distance and time manually and record it in a notepad.

That's what people did ten years ago and it worked fine. Except for the guy that posted his mom's training log from the '80s a couple days ago.

u/Boohyabuddha · 15 pointsr/college

I'll try to be specific with what I recommend, giving brands and models if I can. Bear in mind, I'm from a STEM major, so some of this is stuff I've used for math and other related classes that you might not need.

  1. Uniball KURU TOGA Mechanical Pencils - These are hands-down the best mechanical pencils I've ever used. It has a mechanism that rotates the lead as you lift up the pencil (I think? or maybe as you write...) so you get a sharp, clean script nearly all the time. My only gripe is I lose the eraser caps a lot, and if you don't have them on it's difficult to click more lead. The "Roulette" model might be different.

  2. TOPS Engineering Computation Pad - I actually take my in-class notes on my Surface Pro (highly recommend it), and use my next recommendation for practice problems, but I use this paper for my hand-in assignments. I don't like ruled paper for any kind of computation work, and with plain paper I tend to veer off and don't get clean lines. With this paper, though, I can see the grid on the backside through the front, allowing me to get a clean look without thick lines muddying up the aesthetics. This isn't necessary, but for me it makes my work easier to read and organize, and it often times is the only green paper in the homework pile so it's easy to pick out as well!

  3. NUboard A4 Dry Erase Notebook - My wife bought this for me for my first semester because I was going through so much paper to do practice problems, and because I hated standing up to do work on a bigger dry erase board. It's the size of a normal notebook with transparent sheets overlapping the dry erase panels, and your notes will (more or less) stay on the board until you erase them. By this I mean that you can do some notes or problems, close the book, shove it in your backpack, and when you open it it will be as you left it. This thing changed my studying habits, and I use a lot less paper now.

    Here's some other random things I didn't think of before I realized I need them in the moment. I try to keep these things in my backpack most of the time:

    Surge Protector - I do all my studying in the library, and if I don't get there early, all the desks with outlets get snatched up quickly (especially near midterms and finals). I ended up picking up a cheap one at Micro Center and keep it in my backpack in case I need to sit somewhere further away. Also, it helps others that aren't close to one either. :)

    Noise-Cancelling Headphones - I study in the "absolute quiet" floors, but even then some people make some noise just shuffling papers, zipping-unzipping stuff, eating lunch, etc. You don't need the Bose fancy ones; anything that keeps the noise out (and, I should mention, your own music IN) will work.

    Chegg/Wolfram Subscription - These saved my academic butt so many times. Wolfram might not be necessary if you're only taking one math course as a GEP requirement, but if you're taking up to Calc2 or 3 it's great. It can solve integrations and derivatives, but, more importantly, it will also show you a step-by-step solution. Chegg, however, I think is worth it for nearly any class. I've only had one or two textbooks whose answers weren't on there, and for the others it was a lifesaver. Professors will sometimes not post solutions or answers to problems in class or on homework, and books will often only have the answer in the back. Chegg, however, not only has the answer, but, more often than not, has step-by-step solutions. I used this all the time for two things specifically: 1) Check my homework before I turn it in to make sure I understood the processes (and got the answers right), and 2) doing practice problems from the book that the professor didn't address or post solutions for.

    Hope this helps!
u/halcyoncmdr · 15 pointsr/TalesFromRetail

I have a friend whose family owns a dollar store. Nothing in there loses them money, there are no loss-leaders at a dollar store. Heck, most of the items have at least a 250% markup. They make money on quantity sold throughout the store. Each item is super cheap to purchase but has a great markup and sells through quickly to get new product in.

They do carry a few non-dollar items like flowers and some basic convenience store things like milk and such for the neighborhood that don't follow that markup. Everything else though has insane markups. It's cheap, usually chinese-made stuff that works well enough.

Amazon has 100-sheet engineering paper for $6.14, and it has Prime shipping. That 100-sheet pad costs them way less than $1 to purchase in bulk wholesale.

Heck, even Follett sells 500-sheet packages for only $15.49.

u/shmi · 14 pointsr/photography

Honestly if you don't know what they need from asking them, a gift card to Amazon. I'd much rather have that and spend it on what I need or whatever G.A.S. tells me I need than to receive a piece of kit that I didn't choose. I don't mean to sound rude, it's just that I rather prefer researching and choosing my own gear.

If you absolutely must, though, I recommend a book.

Or a notebook for taking notes while out shooting, scouting, etc.

u/lynkfox · 13 pointsr/ADHD

I was 36 before i was diagnosed. Here are a few things that worked for me - they may or may not work for you.

When I was 25 I had over 15k in credit card debt, 60k in student loans, had flunked out of college and my credit score was 455.

I now have now have less than 1k in credit card debt (school costs, going back to school) an Associates degree in cooking, and a credit score of over 790.

To be fair, I had a lot of great help from my family. But even with great help, you can't get that far without changing things about yourself.

SO Some of the things:

First: remember: every task is made up of a ton of little steps. Stop thinking it has to be done all at once, and instead think of the next step. To quote the Stormlight Archive: 'The Most important step a man can take is the next one' - So i will write this advice in small, easy to digest steps.

1) I closed all my credit cards. You can close them without paying them off.

Even now I only have 2 credit cards, one is joint with my mother, the other joint with my wife. I am not responsible enough without oversight. You want to close them so you -cant- use them. Draconian steps are sometimes needed. And no 'For Emergency' cards unless you keep that card with your parents or a very trusted close friend. Otherwise everything is an emergency.

2) I signed up for debt management If you can, try and do it through your bank, its more reputable, but if they dont offer it you'll need to do a bit of research to find the best one (remember. Small steps)

3) Mint.Com I used Mint to set up a budget for myself. Its a lot like the person explained at Simple, except 3rd party and can be set up with pretty much any bank. It allows you to set categories and see exactly how much you've spent.

4) Start a Bullet Journal Don't go into this thinking its something complicated. (i would completely ignore all the bullet journal videos and subs other than the one that started it ) This is literally all you need: a small pocket sized notebook, and a pen.

Take that notebook with you everywhere. Put it with your watch and your phone and your wallet and take it everywhere.

You can look up the official way to do it if you want, but all you need in it is a way to keep yourself on track. I recommend a habit tracker: make a little grid. One one axis put the day of the week, on the other put what you want to do: Brush teeth. Check Mint. Deodorant. Take Meds. - each day you do the thing, fill in that box. You'll see a nice visual representation of your habits and it will help to form them. Keep them simple. Don't fret if you miss a day, but use it as a reason not to miss the next day. Make it things you want to do for the rest of your life - not short term goals (like Learn C#)

If you want to add a daily to do list in there, then go ahead - just remember to keep the ToDo's simple, easy, and less than 5 a day for now. Time Management is one of our problems - don't overwhelm yourself by adding more than you can do and then feeling bad because you didn't do them./

5) Start a Routine - Every night before I go to bed I put my wallet, Bullet Journal, Watch, Keys, and Fidget cube in the same spot on my desk. I put my phone by my bed, charging, and my glasses next to that. Every morning i wake up, put them all in my pockets, and they stay there all day. Even my car keys. This is part of my routine.

It did not start this big. it started with remembering to put my keys on the hook. Every day. Keys on the hook. Find them somewhere else? Keys go on the hook. After I got that down, I moved on to add another task for a month or two. Then another. Small steps, remember?

Its taken me 10 years to build the routine I have, and I'm still building it. The last 2 months have been getting brushing teeth into it. I've gotten pretty good at it, but its still in my habit tracker. Again, small things. Small steps. In a month or two I'm going to try adding 'washing face daily' since I have light minor acne, but know I can't add it yet or I'll get overwhelmed.

6) If you want to learn a skill, see if you can sign up for a class The structure and routine of class can help a lot. It is a lot different to try and learn C# in a classroom, where you have homework and due dates that keep rolling, then trying to self motivate yourself to learn it. Sure I could, if the Hyperfocus hits. But it wont, and its not reliable when it does, and it wont last long enough to -really- learn everything.

7) Meds You said your meds don't work quite right and leave you unmotivated - have you tried others? I don't know what the procedure is in Canada, but mind/mood drugs affect everyone differently, and sometimes you need to find the right one, right does.

Through it all, Remember: Small Steps

The tasks seem so big and giant and thats why we never do them. I have felt that way about my book I want to write (like you do about your Port) and its taken 3 years, but I'm through 2/3rd of it.

The tasks don't have to be done tomorrow. yes, we want it done tomorrow, but teaching yourself - slowly, but resolutely - that you will still have time even if it takes you years to do it - is an important skill.

As is breaking things up into much smaller tasks

Here, as a parting gift, some thoughts about learning C# (or C+ if you wish)

  1. Download an editor (if you go with C#, Microsoft Visual Studio is -amazing- and really one of the best platforms for coding C#)

    a) Learn how to write Hello World to print to a screen. Done that? Now walk away. Put it away. You have to learn how to do things without the help of Hyperfocus and that sometimes means walking away even if you don't want to.

    b) The next day, learn how to ask for a number, and print it back. Done? Now walk away again.

    c) the third day, learn how to take that number, put it through a calculation (Number+5-3*6/4 or something) and print that new number out. Now walk away.

    d) Fourth day: Learn how to use an If/Else statement - If the number entered is >5, print True, else print false. Now walk away

    e) Fifth day: learn how to use a loop: Take a number, and add 2 to it X times (where X is the second number taken).

    Congratulations. Those 5 things (Write lines, take in new lines, and perform calculations. if/else statements, Loops) are 95% of coding. EVERYTHING done in coding is made up of those. (sure there are more advanced concepts like Classes and Methods and Exceptions and Recursion ... but they are all made up of those 5 things)

    Finally, You CAN turn this around and do better It is not easy. But it is possible. What works for you may not be the exact as above, but it is possible to find it. No body told me what to do, these are all things I came up with for myself, over time, over experimentation. it wasn't even conscious thought of 'lets try this now' it was just ... hey this seems to work, i'll keep it. Meds can help. I certainly don't say no to meds to help. But meds are just a tool, and you need to do stuff with those meds too.

    And remember: There is a lot of world ahead of you. There is a lot of time to get things done. If it takes you a few years longer than everyone else, thats ok. Its your journey. The next step. Just take one small, tiny individual step. Then the next one.
u/BigStickOSalami · 12 pointsr/EDC

I know this will get buried but I have decided to revamp my whole EDC.

/u/ieatedjesus I have taken the plunge on the Wallet you have recomended. I hate when a product has no reviews or I can't do research about it but whatever. I'm also super stingy with money so this is a huge deal for me lol ($42 with engraving)

As for the pen, I have decided to get a Fisher Space Pen $15. I have 3. Now I will have 4. (also bought a clip $5) ((also bought fieldnotes $10 for the wallet))

/u/odomandr I have decided to go with that knife $16. Nothing sexier than a good stone wash and minimalist design. I also need a knife. No idea about the quality but today I have decided to trust a total stranger on /r/EDC

/u/Ryl4nd99 Thank you for the great idea of a post! I hope to post again when everything comes in. I decided to add/replace my edc with the items above. I also carry a muthafuckin Casio as well as an Olight s2 Baton along with dollar store chapstick. Hopefully I can keep you updated or make a new post when all my goodies come in!

Sorry for the wall of text. Thank you for reading.

u/cbroughton80 · 12 pointsr/ZeroWaste

It's neat but it reminded me of this reusable notebook and pens you can buy for $25 on Amazon right now

Gets good reviews but I've never tried it. Ad copy says it can be used 5 times but reviewers have said they've gotten 14 uses.

Using 1 notebook seems better than using a stack of 14 and doesn't look like it would require more resources to produce. Although if you cary a smartphone I guess it's still a waste of resources if we want to go all the way down that rabbit hole.

u/odichthys · 11 pointsr/engineering

I prefer Tops "Engineering Computation" paper for handwritten computations and projects. It has the grid printed only on the back side of the paper such that you can see it on the front of the sheet. This makes it super easy to use for writing equations, drawing diagrams, and making plots on the same sheet and making it look very professionally neat.

I actually had a professor that absolutely insisted that if we wanted to be engineers, we had to use this engineering paper. I thought it was ridiculous, but ever since then I VASTLY prefer using it. It's so much nicer to use for engineering and physics problems than lined notebooks or plain grid paper.

u/Ugbrog · 11 pointsr/PenmanshipPorn


u/MrDTD · 10 pointsr/anime_irl
u/SergeantIndie · 10 pointsr/DnD

Make? No.

Paint? Yes. I painted all of those.

The Goblins are actually a pretty good deal. Reaper's Pathfinder Goblin Warriors. Get 4 of them for 3 bucks. If you want a bit more variety you can get the Reaper's Pathfinder Goblin Pyros but I'd feel pressured to do Object Source Lighting and I'd screw it up. Got two batches of the goblins and painted them all assembly line style.

Reaper Bones has a fair amount of similar "package deals" for a few monsters. 3-4 Skeletons, warriors, goblins, etc. Easy way to build a basic collection, even if it wont be 100% accurate at play time.

I'm using 3 Warriors, 3 Skeletons, and 8 Goblins as markers for most things right now since they were so cheap and easy. Players are pretty understanding of me using stand ins so far. They're happy to have painted miniatures even if the couple Bugbears in a fight are represented by Human Warrior minis.

Of course, even cheaper, you can get any number of wooden or plastic counters in any number of colors and shapes. Those work great too, but I enjoy collecting and painting (even on my limited budget) so Reaper Bones have been a godsend.

Oh! That 1 inch grid paper can be picked up as an Easel Pad. It allows you to draw out full maps, or even just important rooms ahead of time. Easy to just lay the prepped sheet out and go rather than drawing a room out before the combat.

There's a saying in the Army: Everything is ounces, ounces are pounds, pounds are miles.

Well, in D&D: Everything is seconds, seconds are minutes, and minutes are player interest and investment. Keep things flowing smoothly and keep people interested!

> What I don't get is how Seattleites continue to constantly complain about the way money is being spent in king county, then do everything they can to LOOK like they care about people doing jobs THEY think are beneath them, but ignore money being wasted.

These Moleskine journals are really nice, lined, and not very expensive. If you write all of your whiny bullshit in there, then we wouldn't have to read it!

u/GnashRoxtar · 8 pointsr/EDC

So in my mind, the basics of an EDC are a knife, a flashlight, a pen, and a notebook. Depending on your preference/level of preparedness, though, multitools are great, a gun is convenient if you're in a dangerous place with any regularity, and a first-aid kit can literally be a lifesaver.

So for the basics I'd recommend:
Knife: a Kershaw Leek or Scrambler. The Leek is smaller, more discreet, very light, and razor sharp. The Scrambler is considerably more robust, has a longer blade (3.5" vs. 3"), but weighs more as well. Both can be found in Kershaw's "Blackwash" finish, which I like both for the feel and for the added rust and scratch resistance. Both are also spring-assisted, which is legal in a lot of places, but check your local laws before carrying either in public. If you can't carry them, take a look at the Cold Steel Voyager. It comes in several lengths, is legal in California, and is very durable, if not super comfortable.

Flashlights: Oh my god, the flashlights. LEDs have become so cheap and so bright over the last few years that it's actually pretty hard to go wrong. Nitecore is currently my favorite brand, but Fenix has some options as well. I would urge you not to buy a surefire; they are undeniably great lights, but unless you expect to encounter truly extraordinary circumstances on a regular basis (any chance your light could fall under a tank or a bulldozer? maybe surefire is for you), they tend to be somewhat more pricey per lumen than a number of other companies. For EDC, the Fenix PD35 2014 edition is almost unmatched. Almost a thousand lumens, takes rechargeable batteries, and small enough to drop into the front pocket of your jeans, if you don't want to use the included clip or holster. If you'd like something more keychain sized, the Nitecore SENS series comes in several sizes and battery types, and automatically adjusts the brightness of the beam based on the light's orientation. Aim it at your feet and you get a soft glow; aim it off into the woods and it grows steadily brighter.

Let's be honest, a pen is going to get lost. The best pen is one you like enough to keep track of, but one you won't miss too terribly should some co-worker walk off with it. I like the Zebra F-301. Writes smooth, classic stainless steel good looks, and comes in RGB & Black. Notebooks depend entirely on personal preference too, but the smallest Moleskine is easily pocketable and has 32 lined pages.

In my mind, there is only one name in multitools. Leatherman has a kick-ass reputation, a 25-year warranty, and a plethora of tools to suit any need. For the casual EDC, I'd go with what I believe is the second-lightest full size tool, the Skeletool. 7 functions include a knife that opens while the rest of the tool is closed, the ubiquitous pliers/wirecutters, two double-sided bits and a driver; and it looks so. freakin. cool.

I dunno much about guns except that of all the things I've listed, a pistol should be the one you consider most carefully, especially whether you need it or not. It's a big investment and a bit of a lifestyle adjustment if you decide to go CCW. I've always heard 9mm and up, so use that as a jumping-off point.

First aid kits are useless unless they're both small enough to be carried anywhere and large enough to contain anything you might need. Making your own is a good idea because you have the best knowledge of your environment, but I found a couple on Amazon which seem to have most of the basics without too much fluff or bulk. The first could be stuffed in a jacket pocket, whereas the second would be useful in a car.

I hope I helped. Good luck!

u/tim404 · 8 pointsr/notebooks

Mine didn't come until college. I was in school for engineering, and up until that point I'd been just using whatever was handy for notes - composition books, standard-issue spiral bound notebooks, loose-leaf paper in binders. None of it really did it for me.

And then, for my chemistry class, we had to all purchase the ubiquitous lab notebook. What a concept! What an amazing thing! It's... a book, man, like y'know? A book. Cool!

So then, after that gateway notebook, I got myself a Moleskin (back when they didn't suck so much) and went through that, and stuck with using them on and off through the years.

However it was my discovery of Field Notes, and then the pocket notebooks concept in whole, that really got me started down this path. I went from a user to a collector, a snob, and an evangelist.

Welcome to the addiction. My name is Tim. We have a good time around here.

u/explodingalpacas · 8 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

It looks like it's the Leuchtturm bullet journal.

u/OSCgal · 7 pointsr/fountainpens

I know exactly what you're talking about because my brother has one, and I can't remember what it's called either! Let's see what Google turns up...

Edit: Rocketbook!

u/PokeyHokie · 7 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

I love engineering paper. I must have 20 pads of the stuff floating around between my apartment, office, and the 5 or so labs. I hated having to use it in undergrad, but it's just so goddamn handy that I ended up getting addicted to it. 1" and 0.2" grid lines, and a nice header space.

I'm also addicted to these things for research work that needs to be properly documented in a bound notebook. I know it's not much different than a standard composition notebook, but the heavyweight paper and cover are durable and just generally awesome.

u/ManiacalShen · 7 pointsr/labrats

Big enough that you can glue whole pages in there. Gridded, numbered pages, very professional. And not very pricey.

u/FurFaceMcBeard · 7 pointsr/Handwriting

I'm a fountain pen enthusiast, and you're helping me procrastinate, don't worry!

Grab yourself a Metropolitan, it can write on any paper no problem. The Platinum Preppy runs a bit wet.

If you find yourself in want of a notebook that can handle any fountain pen at an affordable cost, grab yourself a black n' red from Amazon.

u/NEKNIM · 7 pointsr/fountainpens

This is what I use and it’s great. It’s been mentioned here before and the general consensus is good.

u/Lawlzstomp · 7 pointsr/fountainpens

Not sure if you live in an area with Target but I have had a lot of luck with Greenroom notebooks. I got a bunch on clearance for like $.69 a pop or something ridiculous. Check for paper that is smooth, but not too thin at local stores.

Heavily recommended Black N' Red Notebook on Amazon for about $7 a piece. Again, not sure how much paper you run through, but it's good cost per performance.

If you need a lotttt of paper try HP Laserjet Paper on Amazon. Redditors vouching for it. If you need lines/dots, place a lined sheet of paper behind the blank paper to guide yourself and then three hole punch it.

Graph paper composition notebook from Staples posted recently.

Another thing to keep in mind you haven't discussed is what ink you are going to use. Pelikan 4001 comes highly recommended for it's cost while still being a dry ink that works on poor paper.

[[Noodler's X-feather]] can be incredibly useful for writing on cheap paper. It will not spread on cheap paper with a fine/extra-fine nib. I don't know if you are using cartridges or converters yet, but switching to a bottle ink can give you some better performance potentially depending on what ink carts you are currently using.


Some other pens that would be good for you at Uni would be the Platinum Preppy a $3.00 pen that starts as cartridge based but can take a converter or be eyedropper converted (where you fill the whole barrel full of ink). They come in EF, F, M and in a variety of colors.

Wingsung 698 in EF is another great bargain option for high ink capacity, uses the same nib as the Pilot MR line (Metropolitan, Retro Pop, etc.), with good build quality for under $20.


Another big takeaway for beginner fountain pen users is higher cost doesn't mean better functionality. Benefits level off really fast when spending more money when it comes to functionality.

Leuchtturm1917 always left me satisfied. Smooth, great quality paper and subtle dotted matrix on the pages. A nice, hardcover, leathery effect on the outside. Got mine for 15€ back in Germany.

An interesting NY sketchbook company has also caught my eye - Baron Fig, they have pretty cool high-quality notebooks.

A Moleskine is always a safe bet too.

u/horriblenoises · 6 pointsr/LifeProTips

These are just the best. I have one in my back pocket all the time. My current one is 3 months old and still in one piece despite being sat on constantly.

u/thelazyclimber · 6 pointsr/climbharder

The Power Company has a process journal that could work well for what you are looking for.

I use a black moleskin journal to keep track of my progress, this is the one I bought off amazon.

I write my focus for the day, the drills or workouts that I do, how the session is going, particular things that I noticed while climbing, strength training exercises (sets and reps), my start and end times for my climbing and workouts (It is nice to track how much time you spend at the gym each week, and what portion is time spent climbing vs. strength training).

I don't write the individual climbs/grades that I do. I don't see much of a point to this, as gym grades are not very consistent and they aren't up for that long. When I am outdoors, I write every route that I climb.

I also tried keeping notes in a spreadsheet on my phone, but I like writing better, and it keeps me off of my phone while training.

u/Jonathan-Graves · 6 pointsr/fountainpens

My friend, here's a great cheap upgrade in paper. Will totally improve how your pens feel and forgive me if you already have quality paper. *Forgot the link : )

u/Zvanbez · 6 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

You cannot have enough engineering paper. It is a bit more expensive than normal paper, but it makes drawing free-body diagrams and the like much easier. And the lines make graphing easier as well. And, as a plus, it's easy to get assignments returned in non-engineering courses because your paper is likely the only one that's going to be this shade of green.

And while we're at it. Only use the green paper. Nobody likes that putrid yellow crap.

I should probably add that my statics/solids/dynamics professor loved this shit and I might have been indoctrinated a bit into the Cult of the Paper.

Good call on adopting something. I discovered bullet journal late in my PhD, and I don't think I would have found a job if I hadn't- there were just too many moving parts.

I used a moleskine, but they have gotten worse over time (cheaper paper and poorer quality. I now used a Leuchtturm 1917. It's like a moleskine on steroids.

u/omgitskedwards · 6 pointsr/bulletjournal

Yeah, I can't use a Moleskine with my fountain pen because it smudges and bleeds through the paper pretty bad. They are great notebooks and so accessible, but I honestly LOVE my Rhodia way more than I've ever loved a Moleskine.

I really like the Mini Soft Cover Notebooks from Moleskine. I carry one of these in my left pocket with my phone and I've found it to be the perfect size.

u/krnm · 5 pointsr/languagelearning

I do the same. I've always found that writing something by hand helps me remember it better than if I just type it. When I come across a new word that isn't an obvious cognate (or is a seemingly obvious cognate but for the wrong word) I write it down along with its translation. I forget where I read this idea, but I also go back through the notebook each week, copy the words onto a new page, and try to define them each from memory. The ones I can't recall, get carried forward to next week, so it's sort of a low-tech version of spaced repetition.

Since I travel for work, I paid a few dollars more for something durable and sharp-looking, like so, but if you watch the back to school sales, you can probably find composition books for less than a dollar each, or spiral notebooks for 10¢.

u/FantasticMikey · 5 pointsr/Magic

I am a big fan of the messy notebook. I keep a [moleskin cahier notebook] ( on me just about all the time. It's super slim so it's easy to keep in a pocket or in my bag. I divide it into three sections. The first section is for to-do items, the majority is for notes and brain dumps and the last few pages are for book/film/music/trick/video recommendations that I hear about and want to remember to check out later.

In addition to that, I have two folders for notes that are in the cloud and synced between laptop and phone. One is just "notes" and the other is "jokes." Due to the ease of search functionality, I don't find the need to organize them more than this. If I want to remember the joke I thought of about harry potter, I just search for harry potter.

One year I did a show called "Things Are Gonna Get Weird" where I performed a bunch of stuff from my notebooks that would never work in my normal show. Example: Floating Table with a statue of Buddy Jesus with a sparkling birthday candle in his head performed to Richard Cheese's version of Your Own Personal Jesus.

Kevin James talks in his lecture about writing down and keeping ideas that you have that are too big or grand to pull off, because someday you may have the opportunity. A television studio may say to you "we have the budget - what do you have?"

u/esurrealist · 5 pointsr/fountainpens

I have a few suggestions:

Memo pads:

  • Office Depot Sugarcane Paper (3 for $6.99)
  • Staples Sustainable Earth (12 for $18.99)


  • Black N Red 8 1/4 x 5 7/8 ($3.00 on sale at Office Depot)
  • Black N Red 8.5 x 11 ($6.00 on Amazon)
  • Office Depot Notebooks 8.5 x 11 -CHECK FOR MADE IN VIETNAM!- ($2.00!!!)
    Best bang for your buck. I have personally tried them, but be SURE to get the ones MADE IN VIETNAM. These will have a little bit of tooth but are fountain pen friendly, they don't feather or bleed.

    Edit: Formatting.

It's a special kind of paper that some of your homework and lab reports will require you to use. Primarily used after freshman year I think.

u/notathrowaway21347 · 5 pointsr/factorio

This is the kind of engineering paper I use for everything (I picked the first link I saw, which happened to be amazon, but you can probably find it for the same price or cheaper at an office supply store, or for $16 a ream at my university book store).

The grid on this kind of paper is actually printed on the back of the paper; when you have it on the ream, the grid from all the pages sort of adds up and is visible through the sheet, but once you take off the page, you can’t see it anymore. It’s nice for keeping things organized while writing, them when you take it off it looks super clean.

I like this stuff so much that I made a template of it in Krita when I switched to digital.

(If you meant, “where do I get old exam sheets,” then good luck. If you have friends in school, they may be willing to part with some. Your library might have scrap paper too. Or you can go back to college, but short of building your own paper mill, that might be the most expensive way imaginable to get scratch paper).

u/TacticalBastard · 5 pointsr/EDC

I'm 18, I'm a student and a IT guy (pretty good one too). I like fixing stuff

What I put in my pockets

Verizon LG G3 An oldie but goodie, been weilding this phone for a little over 2 years. Currently is running Cyanogenmod 13. Also has a 3rd party Anker battery inside which are a bit nicer than the one the phone comes with

Buxton Tri-Fold wallet Very sturdy and nice feeling wallet. My grandparents got it for me half as a joke as my last name is Buxton. Holds a second battery for my phone in addition to all the money I dont have.

Keyring with 144GB of Flash Storage on it. Keys for my house, and assorted flash drives. 2 8GB and 2 64GB. One 64GB is for my portable build of Ubuntu, the other is for Storing files on the go. One 8GB is for Hirens Boot CD, and the last one doesnt work and i'm too much of a lazy ass to take it off. Plus it looks cool.

Feild Notes I think everyone on EDC has one of these. Super handy. Above it is my handy Pilot G2, my personal favorite pen. Ive been using that one for about a year and it shows it with all the chew marks at the top.

Random Skullcandy Headphones.

Things I put in my bag

iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit Probably the best toolkit for computer repair, has literally every single screwdriver tip imaginable, plus some really handy tools for things like phone and tablet repair

2016 Razer Blade A wonderful gaming laptop, that can actually be used in the real world. Is very thin and light considering what's on the inside. Holds a 5ish hour battery life, so I'm not tethered to a wall all the time.

Steam Controller Wonderful for Gaming on the Go. It's a very good controller for PC Gaming, but only for certain people. First person shooters would totally suck on this controller (but then again they suck on every controller), but works very nicely for the games I play.

Logitech MX Master Probably the nicest mouse I have ever used in my life. Fits super well in my rather large hands, and the thumbrest button, speed adaptive scroll wheel, and horizontal scroll in addition to wonderful tracking and bluetooth support make it my favorite mouse of all time.

Cable Matters Thunderbolt Dock Very handy for a laptop that doesnt have Ethernet or VGA output, and an Extra USB port never hurt anyone either.

USB 3 & Micro USB OTG, SD Card and Micro SD card Adapter. Can plug into either standard USB or Micro USB, works as an adapter for a Micro SD or an SD Card. Also useful for a computer that doesnt have an SD card slot.

Microfiber cloth. The Razer Blade is a fingerprint magnet, so this comes in handy quite often.

u/ThatSwedishMoose · 5 pointsr/EDC

I don't know what you want man. I can do the search for you if you are incapable of it. You can buy them at their official website or Amazon.

Part 2/7: Accessories

  • Headphones. Git gud ones. Even if you don't use them for music or movies or anything, they can help you isolate yourself from the busy ongoings of the an airport. Airports are found to some of the most stressful places in the world, so even just sitting there you'll absorb some of the stress. Solution: isolate yourself as much as you can... put on those Bose QC25s, turn on the sound cancelling and enjoy the quiet. Or the music.

  • Comfy shoes. I carry a pair of Toms with me, which I use as slippers around the hotel room and after getting onto a flight (like long ones. I don't even get up on flights under 45 minutes, but 12 hour red-eyes, slippers are nice).

  • I also carry a good set of PJs or sweatpants, and change on flights 6+ hours in duration. Just more comfy than sleeping in your suit. Sometimes I get weird looks, but most people say it's not a terrible idea. At least I'm comfortable.

  • I do not carry many toiletries with me, if I can avoid it. I try to buy it at my destination if I can't stand the hotel brand. Personal favorite is Rose31 by Le Laboavailable at Fairmont properties. The scent might be too much for some people, but I really like it. Extra glasses, contact lenses, solution, etc. Research your destination to determine if you will need your allergy medications. Combs and brushes, depending on what you need. I have a Dollar Shave Club subscription, and been very happy about it. As mentioned, I don't carry toiletries if I can avoid it, but I do carry a moisturizer. I've been known to abuse my Amazon prime to order toiletries to the hotel, usually the sample sizes that will last me one week.

  • A good nice watch. Tame down the smartwatches and fitness trackers. No, the bright pink custom band for your rose gold apple watch does not go with your conservative suit. No, I don't care that it cost you more than your fiancees engagement ring. Good for you. That being said, I look forward to how iBeacons and Smartwatches can make traveling easier, guiding you step by step to lounges or the shortest most endurable security line.

  • Purrell or Hand sanitizer, if allowed.. if not find something non-flammable. So you don't have to run to the bathroom every you pick up that shitty, greasy, absolutely horrible wanna-be pastry from Starbucks the lounge.

  • External USB battery, for obvious reasons.

  • Extra chargers for Laptop and Phone, as well as extra cable for Headphones. The extra chargers for me is easy, since I have two 15" rMBPs.

  • I also carry a Moleskine diary, a nice pen with extra ink, various pens and pencils, and a few ring-bound notebooks to sketch and write notes.

  • A small sowing kit and an extra button or two has never hurt anyone and it's been used.

  • A mouse. I carry a Razer Naga Chroma... I use the thumb grid more than you would think. I have macros and the such mapped to it.

  • My iPad, which I can access case studies and magazines from. I keep a library of case studies, white and grey papers, so I can use them as references at work. Potentially. I also keep a DayOne diary with cases and notes from other projects, recycling enabling the synergetic use of previous ideas and methods.

  • A lot of the above goes into my carry-ons, but I will split my toiletries between checked and carry-on if I check a bag. I'm also more inclined to take my own stuff (toothpaste, gel, lotions, soap, etc.) if I check my stuff.

  • Get a wallet for your documents.
u/chemousey · 4 pointsr/medlabprofessionals

Specimen management is vital to the flow of lab work. Your role in keeping turn around times down is essential and getting those results out to providers can be life or death.

Never be afraid to ask questions, and ask anyone - just because someone doesn’t share your job title doesnt mean you can’t ask them a question.

If you screw up, and you probably will sooner or later, own it as soon as possible. Covering up a mistake will likely delay lab results for a long, LONG time which could be fatal for a patient and it could also cost you a job. Owning a mistake can be difficult but believe me it’s better, the medical field requires the upmost integrity from everyone involved.

I keep a small notebook:

To be exact. But there are many styles/brands and vendors so shop around for what you like - or they’ll likely have scratch paper in the lab you can take to keep notes as well. Utilize those cheat sheets until you feel comfortable and continue to reference them even when your sure you have it down just to be sure.

Best of luck! Have fun!

u/sethra007 · 4 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

OP, in addition to reading this link that /u/motherkos provided, please read these as well:

  • My SMIL thinks my daughter is the child she never got to have. Help!
  • My SMIL thinks my daughter is the child she never got to have. Help! UPDATE PT1
  • My SMIL thinks my daughter is the child she never got to have. Help! UPDATE PT2

    TL;DR version: The SMIL (stepmother-in-law) kept trying to usurp the role of the mother, due to her own unprocessed grief around not being able to have a child. Her attempts to step into the role keep escalating, and when confronted, she had a serious meltdown/possible psychotic break.

    I'm NOT suggesting that your MIL has mental issues. But based on your post, I get the sense that:

  • she seems very determined to be viewed as the Mother, rather than the Grandmother, to LO,
  • she also wants to be the authority on your LO (hence her determination to ignore LO's food allergies--she's probably decided that you and DH are just being trendy or silly, like those gluten-free people, and wants to prove you wrong),
  • and she wants to assert a certain amount of control over you, in a must-establish-dominance kind of way (hence the clapping).

    I don't know what's going on with her. The good folks who post here will have a ton of good advice for you based on their own experiences, and it would be a good idea to give their advice careful consideration.

    My own suggestion is that you get yourself a bound notebook that you can write in (something like a composition notebook), and start noting down every single time she does something that troubles you, along with date, time, place, who was present, what she did, how you responded, and her reaction to your response.

    Why? Because (a) it will help you see what patterns of behavior are there, (b) it can help you explain very specifically to your DH what you're seeing and why it troubles you, and (c) if--God forbid--her behavior escalates to the point where you feel the need to take legal action, you now have a record of your behavior (that's why you use this sort of notebook, by the way--if someone rips out the pages, it's obvious).

    Big hugs to you, OP. I can't imagine how upsetting this all is.

i loved the aesthetic of my first one, but i'm rough with my notebooks and the paper cover ended up bending and getting torn up. the second was a plus too because it was spiral, not book bound. however, given the choice, if i got a book cover for the notebooks i would choose the second one for sure.

Ok, so there are a ton of things you can get but it honestly depends on how much you're looking to spend and what your friend already has in regards to fountain pens. It also helps to know what things they'll be writing - someone who wants to write a handwritten letter to a pen pal will be looking for something different than a chainsmoking author who just needs to finish editing their latest draft before the deadline; who will be looking for something different than a professor who wants to write a syllabus and print out some tests.

  • ~$25 Alphasmart Neo / Alphasmart Neo 2. This is what you get for a serious writer - someone working on finishing their manifesto in the woods kind of writer. This is the ultimate no-nonsense writing tool. This thing will probably be around longer than any of us. It's not made any more, but it's a tank. It takes 3 (either AA or AAA, I can't remember) batteries and then lives for a year of constant use. It has no distractions. You just type on a keyboard that's better than any laptop I've used and only slightly worse that the average mechanical keyboard that I've used. You can do basic editing, but it's meant for word-vomit. When you're done, you hook it up to a computer and either transfer the files directly, or you can just hit a key and have the thing type all the words you've typed into an open word document.

  • ~$50 Fountain pen tuning and cleaning set get this for someone who has a lot of fountain pens, or has a few that they're disatisfied with. This is one of the better "gift" gifts... because it sucks to spend this much on supplies (as you can get something fun like a pen or ink with the money) but it will make your whole collection better. As a gift giver, you won't ever get the "wrong" pen - something they don't like but feel obligated to use since it was a gift.

  • ~$10-50 Starter durable fountain pens: Pilot Metropolitan, Lamy Al Star, Jinhao x750 with a Goulet Nib, Wing Sung 601. This is what you get for a friend that doesn't have a fountain pen and really hasn't heard much about them. If they're a good friend you can pick up some paper and/or a bottle of ink (see below). These aren't super durable, but they'll last several lifetimes if well taken care of. Most of these come with ink cartridges, although the Wing Sung and the Jinhao don't. Also the Wing Sung and the Jinhao will take a bit of time to ship, if ordered from Ebay.

  • ~$10-20 Fountain pen ink. Get this for someone who has 1 or more fountain pens (or if you also purchased a fountain pen). Noodler's Black is waterproof and tamper-resistant. You sign checks with it. You write in the rain with it. It's about as "BIFL" of an ink you can get. It comes in a utilitarian bottle that's filled to the brim with the stuff. Waterman Blue is a highly consistant ink. Fountain pen users and experts alike use it for diagnosing problems with their pens. It's a well-behaved ink and it won't ever cause you trouble. It's also not in the least bit waterproof. (There are also hundreds more inks, but Noodler's black and Waterman Blue are two that everyone should have in their collection).

  • ~$10 Rhodia dot pad notebook or Tomoe River looseleaf paper - these are the quintessential fountain pen friendly papers. They're high quality. Get the dot pad for someone who's going to be doing a lot of writing for themselves - notes in meetings, grocery lists, etc. Get the Tomoe River if they're really into fountain pens or if they want something for correspondence.

  • ~$13 HP 32 Lb Premium Laser Paper is cheaper per-page than the rhodia or the tomoe river paper. It's good for printers. It's thick. It's fountain pen friendly. It's what you print out your syllabus on. It's what you print out a resume on (unless you want to try to impress the company with resume specific paper). It's durable. It's a whole hell of a lot better than copy paper.

  • ~50-100 Staples Arc Notebook System. This is what you get for someone who thinks they know what awesome notebooks are, and who needs a way to organize their writing. It's an awesome notebook system - it combines the convenience and wrap-around nature of a spiral bound notebook with the addition-capability of a 3 ring binder, with the luxury of a leather-bound journal. The hole punch is $50 by itself, but it's super high quality and then you can put whatever paper you have (tomoe river, rhodia, etc.) into the Arc Notebook. A faux-leather bound notebook is ~$20 but they're super durable (survived all of college without any visible wear), professional looking, and customizable. They lay flat on the table, they wrap-around, they're just awesome for writing.

  • ~$100-200 Karas Kustoms Ink The ULTIMATE BIFL fountain pen. This thing will outlive the species. Get this for someone who breaks everything but wants truly bifl stuff. Everything is modular and swappable (the nib, if damaged, is only $15 to replace and you can buy extras to swap them out). You can get it in aluminum with colors, aluminum without color, or brass. People throw these across parking lots and club baby seals with them. They're machined out of a solid bar of metal. I destroyed 3 supposedly "bifl" fountain pens that I was trying to EDC before I found this one - trust me it goes through the ringer but nothing phases it at all. You can bend the clip 90 degrees, just take an allen wrench, unscrew the bolts that hold the clip in place, bend it back, screw it back in, and now it works fine.

  • ~$100-200 Lamy 2000 or Pilot Vanishing Point. The Lamy 2000 is one of the best writing fountain pens I own. The Pilot Vanishing Point is one of the most convenient fountain pens ever (it's clicky) - it also writes well. Both are pretty durable, but I've broken a vanishing point (the clip can be kind of flimsy) and I don't expect I'll break my Lamy 2000.

  • ~$80 Unicomp or Model M Keyboard this thing is almost as tanky as the Karas Kustoms Ink. It's the ultimate writer's keyboard. Just don't let them use it around irritable coworkers as it is pretty loud. It's a pleasure to write on.

Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and pick up a sheet of plexiglass or other transparent sheet to put over it, that helps to deal with the overall flimsy nature of the paper.

Another person mentioned presentation paper - There are some pretty nice pads for about $40. I went to an educational supply store and got essentially the same type of thing for a better price per sheet.

I used the giant grid paper easel pads for LMOP: It worked really well except for the last map. That place is HUGE. If I were doing it again, I'd do what I'm doing for Storm King's Thunder: I'm drawing sections out on 8.5x11 grid paper and rubber-cementing them to cardstock. This is letting me put them together and take them apart like puzzle pieces, and it's working much better.

u/Drunken_Economist · 3 pointsr/DnD

It depends how much work you want to put into it! Drawing it as you go (or describing it and watching/correcting the players' drawing) is easy and works just fine. I prefer being able to include more details and colors, so I went out and bought a few pads of 1-inch graph easel paper and spend some time drawing out each section of a dungeon. As the players explore, I put a new sheet down and occasionally use some scrap paper to cover up parts they can't see.

Morning everyone! I thought I would be bummed to get back to work, but I'm actually really glad to be back to a routine. Left to my own devices, I sink into the couch with a knitting project and Netflix and never emerge. I was happy to get up, put on makeup, and feel like a human again.

One of my Christmas gifts was this Rocket Wave Notebook and I'm really liking it for work so far. I'm a huge note taker and list maker, and go through notepads like crazy. This is supposedly erasable and reusable so I'm excited to at least save some trees! :)

I'm glad it's a new year. No resolutions, just keeping on ketoing. I want to be in the 130s (firmly) for my wedding next month. And I'll be glad when that's done too!!! :)

Fill the pages, snap photos to have the pages sent to your email/dropbox/google drive/etc

Once the book is full, microwave it. (That's right, microwave it) with a cup of water on it. The ink disapppears.

u/Adventux · 3 pointsr/gadgets
u/sithranger1601 · 3 pointsr/videos

There also exists a notebook that does this but with a microwave oven instead of flame, designed for these Frixion pens in particular.

u/kmartburrito · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

It's called the Rocketbook Wave, their new one is called the Rocketbook Everlast. It's got a microfiber cloth you can use to just dampen and wipe the ink off after you scan and upload it to whatever destination you set up in the app. Pretty slick, I use mine for work. Amazon link

u/langraffe · 3 pointsr/productivity

Have you considered smart notebooks? They are reusable (up until a certain point) so you can invest in a computer for yourself and still have the pen and paper feel you need

u/civilthebest · 3 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

that works best for me

i believe only the ipad pro's allow you to use the apple pencil. I use it at work for easy markups on plans

u/ThomasVIII · 3 pointsr/backpacking

moleskine are my favorite.

u/rawbface · 3 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers

I use the half-size moleskin notebooks.

They also make one that has blank pages on one side and music staves on the other:

u/FourOhDoubleNatural · 3 pointsr/rpg

A Moleskine is one of these.

u/Sporz · 3 pointsr/neoliberal

It isn't exactly a notebook but I carry this thing with me everywhere I go.

It snaps open when you take the pen out of it, it's got a sturdy plastic cover and comes with a bunch of post-it's and sticky tabs. And it's like 10 bucks, it's crazy.

If you want something more classic just go with a moleskine they come in all sizes

u/Tetchy · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Awesome! I do the same thing >.<

I have a whole wishlist dedicated to items under $5.

I'm going to go peruse your wishlist and see if any of our interests line up...hmmm...

I like your comic and literary interests.

You might like this $6.26 'Moleskine Cahier Journal (Set of 3), Pocket, Ruled, Black, Soft Cover (3.5 x 5.5): Set of 3 Ruled Journals'.

If you strictly want something under 5 bucks, I'd say add some Iron Man stickers.

u/Californiameatlizard · 3 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Also, use a composition notebook like this, where it’s obvious if you’ve ripped out a page, and write in blue or black ink. From what I’ve read this is helpful for legal purposes.

u/BobertBobertson · 3 pointsr/engineering

Not this? This is bundled with the product from your link.

u/MountainManC · 3 pointsr/fountainpens

First, welcome to this sub-Reddit. Fountain pens are a blast! Be prepared for it to become a hobby. So many different color inks to play with that will vary in in different pens and nib sizes.

I'd agree with the recommendations of either a Pilot Metro ($15) or Twisbi Eco ($28.99 US). Does the Twisbi write $14 better? I don't think so but for me the Twisbi is less scratchy than the Pilot AND the Twisbi let's you see the color of your ink. The Twisbi does not look like a "normal" pen like the Pilot. For me, part of owning a pen is to be noticed writing with it. Twisbi does this easily. Also if you go With the Pilot, buy the Con-50 converter. This holds the ink a lot better and is easier to use than the supplied con-30 squeeze converter.

Notebooks - can't go wrong with Black & Red. $5.77 US as a addon item for Amazon. Great fountain pen paper that's perforated, so easy to tear out a clean sheet and turn in.

Ink - Noodler's X-feather is designed to not feather on cheap paper. I've never used it, but my go to black is Noodler's bad black moccasin. Never had a problem with it. If you want to experiment with different inks, Goulet Pens has a sampler of black inks. Why would want to experiment with inks? Because not all blacks are the same and because you can!

Other items you may want to add:

  1. Bulb syringe - makes cleaning your FP a lot faster
  2. Blunt tip syringe - filling ink into the FP is easier.
    You tube video showing bulb syringe

    Lastly, good luck on your RN!

u/asciiaardvark · 3 pointsr/fountainpens

Pilot's mediums are a bit finer than western, and Pilot pens tend to run dry - so you might be okay. If not, you could also try different inks.

For inexpensive notebooks, I'm a fan of Black n' Red, or you could 3-hole-punch some laserjet paper

u/alide · 3 pointsr/fountainpens

I'm running

Lamy Safari Petrol (M) - Lamy Petrol

TWSBI Eco (F) - Diamine Majestic Purple

Edison Herald (M) - Robert Oster Fire & Ice

Petrol is main note taker. It's essentially black with some flair. Eco is for math. Smaller lettering. The purple just looks nice IMO and can be written over with the Petrol if needed.

I'm using 3 of these notebooks. They are wonderful!

I also have a Lamy 2000 (B) that I've used for like 10 words.. But hey, you can't have a l2k and NOT have it inked, right?

The other slots of my penroll are filled with those disposable fountain pens incase people get curious.

u/astronaut5000 · 3 pointsr/Purdue

Just redid the math its $8, 190/24 is 190/24=7.91666666667, and I'm not trying to make a profit I just want people to get cheap engineering books and make sure I don't have 24 of them. On Amazon engineering pads are around $14-15 so around %50 of normal price I thought is cool. I'll edit the post.

u/fifty2imeanfifty4 · 3 pointsr/notebooks

You might look at engineering pads if you like light green colored paper. It has a light grid instead of horizontal lines, but it's what I use most frequently for general notes and sketches. I find it to be very neutral on the eyes.

u/craders · 3 pointsr/AskAnAmerican

My favorite was engineering paper. It is expensive but gave me the best of both. The front is blank but has a grid printed on the back. You can see the grid enough to draw from but since the front is blank you don't have lines going through any text. The grid is also small which encouraged me to write smaller.

u/LastImmortalMan · 3 pointsr/EngineeringStudents

10-15 per pad online, up to 20$ per pad in stores. It's insane too because I can't find the good stuff (I think they've been bought out or something) so the quality has dropped drastically in the past two years and you don't really have much to choose from.

u/ew73 · 3 pointsr/geek

This stuff is what everyone should use.

u/nothing_clever · 3 pointsr/pics

Same here. But I've found that the green-ish computation pads, while expensive, work beautifully for doing math.

u/clee781 · 3 pointsr/FSAE
u/TheRemedialPolymath · 3 pointsr/bujo

It's the basic Leuchtturm1917 A5 in dotted. Suits my needs, feels good in my hands and under my pen, and the paper is 80 weight. I'd like heavier, but I don't need it. What do you use?

u/minema92 · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal
u/unixygirl · 3 pointsr/EDC

I take daily notes... But I found Field Notes frustrating to use and instead opted for one of these:

Paperweight is solid, it's well bound, can't rave enough.

But anyway, I find the benefit in that I'm less likely to forget important things and that (for me) writing something complicated helps me really think about it, where otherwise if I did it on a machine I'd just bang away at the keyboard and then move on, or worse, copy paste.

u/californiamoonbase · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Pilot pens are my favorite. I think the G-2 0.38mm ones write the best, but I also like the Percise V5 .

As far as a notebook, Leuchtturm1917 dotted A5 books are my favorite.

For pens/markers I would recommend going to an arts store and try to test some out. It is such a personal thing in my eyes.

Perfect combo for any kinda sketching / brainstorming

u/ulzo · 3 pointsr/Calligraphy

The advice that was given to me by /u/GardenofWelcomeLies was to start with a dip pen, so I will pass along the same advice.

Overall, a dip pen and some sumi ink will run you cheaper than an automatic like the pilot parallel's.

edit: Here are the 3 things you can use to start your adventure: 1. Manuscript Student Set 2. Sumi ink - make sure it is NONwaterproof 3. Rhodia dot pad

mine is actually a little bit smaller and i just put it in my back pocket.

but i also have a couple notebooks of that size for my job and i just keep them in my backpack. not literally always on my person but usually nearby.

u/cargobroombroom · 2 pointsr/lifehacks

I've thought about this same idea, but I end up using my phone mostly (some of which has been deleted due to upgrades). From the sound of what I think you're looking for, check out a pocket moleskin journal. It should fit in a back jeans pocket, depending on your size, and it's designed to last. The cover and binding won't wear as easily. It has a ribbon bookmark and an elastic band to keep it closed. They come in ruled, squared, and plain. An idea I had while looking was to date the first page at the start and completion. When you move to the next, you can file it away and have some semblance of order when you're looking for some old idea or drawing.

EDIT: The dating thing is not as clever as I thought. It's a customer image.

u/bdmmm · 2 pointsr/writing

Thanks for the comment. Most netbooks are unusable in the sun. Pixel qi has a screen PQ101WS01M with a 0.52 W draw. So correct me if I am wrong, but 0.52 draw 7 days 24 hrs = 88 watt/hrs. A generic dell battery would do the trick.
As for price, rock bottom pricing wasn't really the goal. Think of Moleskin notebooks.

u/eptetrino · 2 pointsr/ADHD

If you want a small paper planner, I would go simple with something like a Moleskine pocket notebook.

They also make a "daily planner" type thing with one day per page, but that's kind of overkill IMO.

u/Chance4e · 2 pointsr/DnD

A small journal is all you need. If you want a good one that will last a campaign or three, pick up a moleskine or something of similar quality.

If you're the kind of group that insists on using laptops at the table, Microsoft OneNote is perfect. But you should put the laptops away. They don't solve as many problems as you'd think.

u/rideclick · 2 pointsr/getdisciplined

I've been doing this of a while. I like using the thin cahier journal moleskins along with a collapsible pen. The pen is the key for me. It's weight is a good solid pen in your hand even when pulled to full size. Zebra Tele-scopic pen I've tried others and always had an issue with the point (the cone where the pen comes to a point) breaking off sometimes making a mess. The Zebra has a metal tip. It can come unscrewed so you should check it to keep it snug. LOVE THIS!!!

edit: If you want to pick them up locally you can find the thin Moleskins at any Target or Barnes and Noble in plain page, lined and grid ruled like the Bullet. The pens are harder to find, Office Max was the only place that regularly carried them.

u/killbillydeluxe · 2 pointsr/EDC

I am in Canada as well and I just get the Molkeskine notebooks of the same size. I find them a bit better and definitely lower in price.


And now you need to get a Space Pen by Fisher!

Edit: Here is what I have.

1.) Something that is grey. -Like WL

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. - Because it goes in a shower, which is like rain. -College Needs WL

3.) Something food related that is unusual. - They were unsual the first time I had them! -Want WL

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. - This is for my girlfriend because she can't afford it and, as a college student, it's sort of an essential. -College Needs WL

5.) A book I should read! - I haven't read it yet, so I don't really know that I have a strong argument for you to read it. :] -Want WL

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related!

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...)

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. -Want WL

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? - The soundtrack for this movie is amazing and I think everyone should be able to relate to the traumatizing death scene. -DVDs WL

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. - This is a survival tool, so when you need to escape from your house without advance notice you will (maybe) be able to survive! -Like WL

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. I just had surgery on my chest a couple months ago and the scars are building up and I would like to go away so I won't have people staring at me. -Medical Needs WL

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items.

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? - I like to watch a lot of movies and play a lot of video games and right now I have a very small tube TV that cuts off most of the screen. -Like WL

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand.

u/jrconlin · 2 pointsr/gadgets

Like any other, you kind of want a keyboard that matches the way you type. Also, realize, that android specific bluetooth keyboards tend to be "quirky". I've found that I can never get the sort of speed that I can get over a proper keyboard.

That said, I've had experience with a few devices. My favorite has been the Asus Transformer keyboard attachment. Obviously, you'd get the Transformer instead of the Galaxy. (Not what you're looking for, but I'd still recommend it since it comes with extended battery life and additional flash storage.)

I've also got a folding bluetooth keyboard that I occasionally use with my laptop. Battery life on it is fairly good, I'd toss a spare pair of rechargable AAA batteries in your bag so that when it dies you're not screwed.

I've also heard good things about the periboard although I've not used it.

All that aside...

I'd also suggest that going with a tablet may not be a great idea. If you're just looking for something to write on, I'd suggest a laptop. While probably way the hell out of your price range, I'd recommend something like a Toshiba Protege or even a used Mac Air. For no other reason than swapping between notes and references is possible. Hell, you could even go for an Acer Timelinex get about 8 hours of battery life and pack a spare battery for an additional 8.

If nothing else, you won't have to worry about getting a stand for the tablet.

If you do go for a tablet, I'd also recommend packing an old fashioned tablet and stylus

My lab's standard notebook is pretty basic, but I like it a lot: National Brand Computation notebook. No table of contents, but it meets all your other criteria. I just use page flags to mark projects, but you could also dedicate the 1st page to a TOC, since the pages are numbered. Light yellow paper with green grid, handles every ink I've thrown at it.

u/mrpotatoehead · 2 pointsr/compsci

I'm a big fan of this one

u/bs-scientist · 2 pointsr/labrats

Like the other comment mentioned, I have a notebook that is “my thoughts” basically. It goes where I go. It has random calculations, notes from meetings, notes from seminars, notes of things I want to remember to come back to later, etc. It houses all the stuff that I know I want to have written down, but doesn’t belong in my lab notes or book/article notes.

Books and articles I have on the computer and in some notebooks. I am not too picky on that.

My lab notebook is a little more structured. I use this one and I used to use this one
I really enjoy both. I only stopped using the national brand one because it is not hardback and I am just too rough on it.

When in the lab I do take my lab notebook and my other notebook that is just my thoughts so I have somewhere to write down other stuff without clouding the lab notes.
I feel like clear lab notes are important in the event I ever need to hand an undergrad my notes and tell them to figure it out. I am fortunate to be in a lab with 6 super awesome undergrads that have their shit together better than any others I have seen, but still. Good clear notes go a long long way.

u/ThexRuminator · 2 pointsr/Minneapolis

Yep. I just finished engineering school this spring, and I've gone through my fair share of pads.

Green Paper is by far the most commonly used engineering paper. It's fairly thin, a little less than printer paper. I mostly used this paper for scratch calculations and everyday homework.

Buff is a bit thicker, but still has the same layout. I liked using this when doing hand calculations that would be included in reports or labs.

For notebooks, look for a Lab Notebook or Engineering Notebook. There are a few options out there, and it depends if you want a spiral or bound book. Computation Notebooks held up very well, and helped preserve my notes.

u/RiteInTheRain_NB · 2 pointsr/notebooks

Depending on what type of science courses you take, I'd recommend our stuff. Our paper is water-resistant, so you can spill on it without consequence. It works great with ballpoint pens, as well.

Let me know if you want a little sample book to try out.

I've also heard good things about these types of notebooks (1, 2, 3). I've tried something very similar to the Scientific Notebook Factory one and liked the feel of the paper.

u/NapkinBox · 2 pointsr/writing

Black n' Red

They're 24lb and have a very smooth feel on them, but yeah, they grab ink so well that it's probably too much if you like having your inks show off. My strokes are a lot thinner on it than on my Rhodia and Midori. If you don't care about that, then these notebooks are a steal.

u/ibapun · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

Great pen choice, I have one in medium and I love it. I've never tried the journal you got and I'm not sure if it's fountain pen friendly--for a starter notebook, I'll add that Black N Red notebooks are fairly inexpensive and rather good.

And congratulations on joining! Enjoy!

u/isparavanje · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

The only companies that sell 8.5x11 notebooks that tear out nicely are Red&Black and Clairefontaine, afaik.

The issue with the Red and Black notebook is the torn out page is slightly smaller than 8.5x11, as it's the whole paper that's 8.5x11, not the torn out part. The issue with Clairefontaine is just that it's a little pricey for homework/note-taking paper. If you have a printer you could always just get the HP laser papers and print your own grid. 24 or 32 both works but 32 is better

u/LocutusOfBorg17 · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

u/Rogue_Glory · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

I agree with the other commenters, definitely want to use a fine nib and non-feathering ink. If the paper issue is the only thing holding you back from getting a fountain pen, I'd suggest investing a few extra dollars to buy notebooks with good paper. I'm in college and I really like these notebooks because the paper is bright white and shows absolutely no shadowing or feathering, even with my markers.

Unfortunately, several companies sell the comp pads with no on-page branding. I'm guessing from the first image that you're looking for a green pad but some companies offer a buff pad using the same paper, tan with a brown grid. Might be an alternate option to use while searching.

If Ampad isn't to your liking, you might also look into

u/tbtemples97 · 2 pointsr/EngineeringStudents
I don’t know if this is exactly what you’re looking for, but I use it for all of my notes. As long as the piece is left in the pad the lines are pretty visible and once removed it just looks like you write pretty straight

u/implicitly_bonsai · 2 pointsr/Denver

I remember looking for one a while back, and the only thing I could find was the crappy blue Moleskin that's 3.5" x 5.5".

I ended up ordering a Rhodia Webnotebook from Amazon. They're pretty nice. The pages are a little smooth for my taste but they handle pen and ink pretty well. They've also got a webbed sleeve in the back for holding misc.

The Leuchtturm 1917 is also very popular for dotted notebooks.

u/unproportionaterice · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

I'm using a moleskine grid in A5 and it's been working great as a functional bujo for me. Love that it flips open to every page easily, and that the pages are not completely white! Pretty hardy imo. They have dot journals too, like what you're looking for.

I would say Leuchtturm1917 is one of the most popular options for bullet journals though. Here's the link for one A5 dotted I found on Amazon. Link

u/EphemeralGallbladder · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I think the best way to get into it is to just do it and see how it works out for you.

My suggestions would be:

  1. Watch this video if you haven't already
  2. Buy this notebook
  3. Buy Frixion pens (or some other erasable pen, I make too many mistakes personally)
  4. Receive items
  5. Start trying the bullet journal method

    If you get the pens above, be careful! Don't leave your journal in a hot car (I haven't yet, thank goodness) and if you do you can put it in the freezer for a bit.

    Bullet journaling is not the end-all be-all solution for me, my other primary tool is Habitica. I use Bujo as a calendar and a place to put my ideas down, as well as some important notes.

Leuchtturm1917 makes some awesome journals. 125 sheets of paper. A bit more sheets than rhodias webnotebooks, but the rhodia webnotebooks are 90gsm and leuchtturm1917 is only 70gsm. I think I would probably go with the rhodia because its a bit cheaper and if Im gonna be paying $20 for a notebook then I want the higher quality of paper. But who knows. Im pretty new to fountain pens and fancy paper, so I really cant compare 70, 80, or 90 gsm paper.

I'm more of a musician but I agree with OP - I get my best ideas (entrepreneurial or otherwise) either in the shower or while falling asleep. I've read that these are two of the most common activities for getting ideas simply because you're experiencing some sensory loss and your brain compensates in other ways.

If you're getting awesome ideas in the shower, I'd recommend something like this to keep track with:

u/mag-neato · 2 pointsr/wherecanibuythis

Not exactly what you asked for, but I've had this on my Amazon WL forever

u/SarcasticOptimist · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

Nemosine Singularity. Bonus points if she does physics. If you want to spend more, this Waterman looks swirly and cool.

Grab this purple sampler.

What kind of subject does she teach? That way I know whether to recommend grid. Dot grid is another option that can work all the time.

u/DragonXRose · 2 pointsr/Calligraphy

Well you can still use the notebook, it seems high quality and smooth paper and i don't see any bleeding. If you make the width between 2 lines your x-height, it will work out. A set of 6 lines would then be your guidelines for 1 rule of text. Here is a diagram, based of the scribblers ratio and slant. So just count your lines and add in the remaining guidelines and you're set to go.
(And don't mind my crappy, drawn in letters, again i'm not doing pointed-pen calligraphy.)

If you do want to use other paper in the future then cheap options are Laser printer paper, Marker paper or a Rhodia pad.
These are also smooth surfaced, bleedproof options. You want smooth paper, because your nib is less likely to get snagged or dig in the paper and tear it. Bleedproof, because your ink will stay put and not run out & ruin fine hairlines.

Finally, your nib is also an important factor in writing pointed-pen calligraphy. Each nib is different, some are more flexible than others. Take your nib out off the holder and see if you can find a brandname and number; from what i can see i think it's a Brause Steno 361 (I could be wrong). Other options are A Nikko G, a Nikko G Zebra, Hunt 512, Hunt 101 and 103 (both flexible but very delicate), Brausse 66EF (it's smaller and more flexible) and so many others. Everyone has their own favorite nib, so experiment if you have the chance. And do clean your nib when your finished with writing, then they'll last much longer, otherwise they'll corrode and rust.

That's all i can say, and much of it was picked up here on the subreddit or plucked of the internet. Have Fun!

u/charlesathon · 2 pointsr/stationary

Like this but with holes for folders. I can't find any of decent quality anywhere! Maybe it doesn't exist. Thanks anyway

u/lordcrimmeh · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

For my physics and chemistry courses I swear by Rhodia No. 18 dot pads.

You can also get ones in blank, but these or the equivalent top wirebound ones are my go to, as they provide just enough of a guideline for keeping notes and figures straight, without being too obtrusive.

u/Prrrtz · 2 pointsr/notebooks

Yeah, you could use the regular staplebound pads or the wirebound notebooks.

I realized that if you pull the dot grid sheets out of an A5 pad, their size will be less than A5. As I’m picky as hell, I got the A5+ 193439c notebook so that the detached paper size is exactly A5. Also, they are micro perforated, which helps. Note that the dots are bluish though, not sure why they do not use the subtle grey of their notepads.

They have A4+ staplebound pads as well.

Hey, thanks for the offer! So generous! :)

u/stylefunky · 2 pointsr/web_design

First of all, it's great that you even recognize this. Trust me, over time your proportions will improve. This is why I recommend ABS.

But in the meantime, you might find that using graph paper or even better, dot grid paper helps with your proportions. Here are some free templates you can just print out.

Do the boxes that contain your mockup closely match the scale of the device screen you are designing for? If you're having trouble with that, you can also use sketch pads with the actual screen already templated out for you like these. I don't personally use them because I need to design for various screen sizes at a time, but it is very helpful if you know you only need to design for one specific device.

There are also some UI stencils for iPhone that you might also find handy.

Happy sketching!

u/publichobbyaccount · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Especially if you get a good flip top notebook (example ) it's really the best way to go.

Before you ask any questions you can just skim through the list of the ones you've already asked.

By putting things you were told unprompted in the 'answers' column, you can really easily review them before each shift by skimming your notebook, because they will have blank spaces in the 'questions' column indicating where they are.

If you do it right you will almost never have to be told anything twice. You'll also have a killer resource for any new employees.

u/zabblezah · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

I'm on my first bujo, Rhodia, and I'm loving it so far!

I chose to not get a leuchtterm for the same concerns as you, shadowing and bleeding. There's some ghosting on my Rhodia with mildliners, but it's very faint. I definitely recommend it! The pages feel so silky and high-quality.

I purchased this for my group. It's 1 inch grid paper.

You can draw whatever you want on it and make 1 inch 5 feet. It's pretty large so it's easy to see what's going on, and allows for BIG map design of you increase the moment per inch.

u/Kalanth · 2 pointsr/mattcolville

You can also steel a page from the other Matt. Mercer uses easel graph paper and predraws the maps where the encounters will take place, laying out the disposable sheet for that engagement and tossing it when the encounter is completed. This tends to be a bit more costly at $40 - $50 per pad, but it does remain an option.

u/darjr · 2 pointsr/DnD

I've got a flip map, couple of them. And the tiles. I keep going back to the tiles. I also have a 36inch wide format color printer/plotter that helps. Also look into easel paper. They sell pads of it with a 1 inch grid.

u/kylania · 2 pointsr/DnD

You can use anything you want really. One group I was in used these 1" grid paper easel sized:

u/LowBrowOrbit · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

Not OP, but it looks like Field Notes Dot-Grid Memo Notebooks.

u/jsamhead · 2 pointsr/EDC

I find that a field notes (or other identical sized notebooks, I carry off brand ones because they're $2/piece rather than $7/piece) and a pen fit perfectly together in my back jeans pocket. As far as I can tell, the knock-offs are the EXACT same product with different labeling. I also reinforced the spine with a strip of gorilla tape because the spines tend to get worn out after you've carried the notebook for a month or two with no reinforcement.

u/FeebleOldMan · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

> monthly calendar on one page

I'm currently using a Field Notes Dot Grid, and I do squeeze the monthly calendar on a single page, splitting the dates into 2 columns. I use symbols for things like holidays, and only write in the important appointment for the day.

The key for the symbols takes 2-3 lines below the dates, and I'll have about 7 lines left for the tasks and goals I want to achieve for the month.

If you want to have more space for your monthly calendar, you can rotate the notebook 90 degs CW/CCW and you'll have 1 line per day.

Also, I love LAMYs!

u/CaatSa · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I've never tried them but they sell these shower notepads. Could work to write down thoughts, then have a reminder on your phone to check the shower pad once a week.

u/aetolica · 2 pointsr/proED

I got these from Amazon a while back and I really like them:

It's a 2-pack, and I like the spiral-bound feature. They're inexpensive so if you're just getting started with bujo, you don't have to spend a ton of money to find out that you aren't keeping up with it.

Dunno if this one works with onenote but it's reusable which is nice.

I plastic screen protector might help the feel of the SP3 but it's never going to feel like paper when it's not. You just get used to it.

u/Locopollo13 · 2 pointsr/writing

I'm this way as well. I genuinely feel much more efficient in pre-writing when I use paper and pen. I can quickly shuffle between pages, I have all my own symbols and colors/highlights that allow me to put it all together when the time comes.

Even with dual-monitors, it doesn't feel fluid enough for me to switch between screens/programs when writing. That being said, looking at other post's in here, Scrivener seems rather useful.

Also, this could be something you might benefit from:

u/rastapasta808 · 2 pointsr/pens

Not at all. It smears the writing a bit as it erases, then once you rub it enough, it turns completely clear/invisible.

I use these pens all day, every day and they have stood the test so far. I make a ton of mistakes usually when writing so these are a godsend.

10 Pack, retractable

12-color marker set

Highlighters + Eraser

And to top it off, my favorite: the microwavable 'smart notepad'.

Again, the ink turns clear at 140°, so this notebook allows you to write notes in the notebook with the Frixion pens/markers/highlighters and "reset" it by microwaving it for a few seconds. Best part is, you can scan the pages into perfect PDFs with their app. And you can mark the page to tell it where to save it to (email, Google Drive, Dropbox, local save, etc.) It finally started to break my habit of taking notes and never going back to them with this a couple months ago. I'm super psyched on them and I just wanna spread the gospel of Frixion 😃

u/dakolli · 2 pointsr/ProductPorn

does essentially the same thing. Only the rocketbook requires you to take an image with an app on your phone. The rocketbook is only $27.

u/adrpadua · 2 pointsr/UCI

I like dot grid notebooks like this Webnotebook.

u/Deiji- · 1 pointr/EDC

I found this one:

It's a bit bigger than mine though, not to mention way more expensive. I think it's called "Rhodia Webnotebook Dot Paper"

u/mimafo · 1 pointr/notebooks

I use Leuchtturm 1917 at work and like them. But I just got a Rhodia Webnotebook for journaling at home (this sub convinced me)... it's amazing. I use a Kaweco Sport M and I just love love love writing every night. It was pricey, but so far I'd say it was worth it. There is also a less expensive Clairefontaine notebook that I hear has comparable paper.

u/BassyClastard · 1 pointr/calligraffiti

I will always recommend Rhodia products. I use their dot pads religiously. They're well made, with quality paper and for a fair price.

u/FattyBuumBatty · 1 pointr/DungeonsAndDragons

The standard is 1in squares, this fits all licensed DnD miniatures. I have a large easel pad of 1in grid paper for known fight locations, and an erasable mat from chessex that I use for "off the cuff" situations.

u/chrisndc · 1 pointr/DMAcademy

I do it a bunch of different ways. If it's a map I am coming up with on the fly, I usually just quickly draw it on a battle mat or dry erase board.

Sometimes I use donjon (like you did) and then draw it out on one inch grid paper. I just cover undiscovered parts of the map with paper.

I just tried out 2.5d for a battle with a vampire, this isn't the video I used to build mine, but it will give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

I've also tried the method of cutting the map into rooms to lay out as the party moves forward. This method makes it more difficult for the party to know the layout of the dungeon, which can be fun.

It's all just trial and error, in my opinion! Have fun!

u/meat_bunny · 1 pointr/DMAcademy

Hey, finally something I can answer from personal experience.

I was in a similar boat where I didn't want to sink a bunch of money into the game for a projector until I was sure the campaign was going to last a while.

You can get set up for months for about $45. If this is a problem see if your players can chip in $5-$10 each or something.

One inch grid paper is your friend. You can get 27x34 sheets of it off Amazon for about 32 cents a sheet ($31.99 for 100 sheets )

For minis you can use paper as well. I recommend getting 1" binder clips and printing off your own minis. You can buy 144 of these off of Amazon for $11

I used Publisher, but there's a free version called Libre Office Draw. Make a bunch of 3x1 squares in it on an normal sheet of paper and put in images from Google for all of your monsters. You'll want to make them double-sided so the paper sticks up (One row right side down and the other right side up).

You can fit a lot on one sheet of paper. Then print them off either at home, work/school if they allow it, or do it at a print store for less than a dollar.

Let me know if you have any questions.

u/da_chicken · 1 pointr/DnD

IMX, you'll also eventually need to clean the whole mat with something stronger than just water. Wet erase works pretty well, but eventually there's a buildup that you need soap and water and some time to clean off. And you absolutely must clean the mat at the end of every session. Never leave it for a week, or you'll never get the marker off cleanly.

I also really wish they would put "Wet erase only" around the edges. I've seen them that have that and I feel like it would result in fewer dry marker triggered murders.

Personally, I still prefer the 1" ruled easel tablets. With a bit of shopping you can find them for about $0.25 per page. You also have the advantage of being able to draw your maps before the game begins and placing them as needed or switching back and forth as needed.

u/funandgames51 · 1 pointr/DMAcademy

I make battle maps because I find that stuff fun - but you can make very simple ones!

I use this paper - it comes out to <50c per map.

Though you could just use butcher paper and a wooden dowel with one inch marks on it for for every 5 feet - that's what I'm doing after I run out of the grid Paper.

For city maps, I use this method.

Again, I spend more time with it because I like to, but less so when I too am pressed for time. You could likely make them very simple, and they would still look good and make sense.

I can post a few pictures of some of my town and battle maps when I get back if you're interested.

I tried to use premade maps to print initially, but it was both very expensive and hard to see. Again, I can post pics later if you want.

I'm trying to get my best friend into DMing, and I've encouraged him to look into these, which are available in many sizes. Wet erase marker for 30 seconds, bam a battle mat.

If you want something in the same vein that's a little more hardcore, there's these, which I may get if I run a less serious campaign in the future.

There's also Matt Coville's video onterrain that is very helpful. All of the stuff he puts out is, really.

Hope that helps!

u/randomwords42 · 1 pointr/DnD

We have been using something like this and it is working alright until we get a more permanent solution.

u/RTukka · 1 pointr/DnD

You only have to prepare the details for material that there's a high likelihood that the PCs will directly investigate and interact with, and even then not having that material prepared is pretty easy to deal with through improvisation and note-taking, as long as players won't be interacting with the thing in a highly technical way (e.g. combat) or unless the setting element is deeply interwoven with other elements.

So most of the buildings in the village don't need to be designed in detailed or have a specific designated location. When designing a village, I'd focus on determining what services are available that are pertinent to adventurers, and to what degree and in what form. Beyond that I'd focus my efforts more on establishing character, tone and ambiance with descriptive details, and ideas about how I want to portray the more notable NPCs before worrying too much about town and building layouts.

If you do want to get more in the weeds you can find nice tutorials on designing villages, and tools like Inkarnate.

For areas where you anticipate combat will occur, try to make the environments interesting by introducing at least some of the following: sources of cover and/or obscurement, difficult terrain, multiple elevations, traps, hazards and objects/terrain that can be interacted with or destroyed. Of course, you should try to include these elements in a way that's natural to whatever function the area serves in the world. For physically drawing or representing the maps, you can use a tool like Dungeon Painter Studio, though for home games I have been partial to gridded easel pads (local office supply stores or art supply shops may have better prices) and drawing out the maps in relatively simple detail.

u/kOTAT · 1 pointr/DnD

I use a chessex map for on the fly encounters, but pre-draw all my dungeons on 1" gridded easel paper. It's a little more up front but has been working great.

TOPS Standard Easel Pads, 3-Hole Punched, 27 x 34 Inch, 1" Grid, White, 50 Sheets/Pad, Carton of 2 Pads (7902)

u/EarthAllAlong · 1 pointr/dndnext

I use this stuff:

and draw my own maps with sharpies. They come out looking like this:

Note that many locations in CoS are too big to fit on one of those sheets, which are 27x32. The amber temple I drew there is scaled to 10' per inch. It's not suitable for grid combat, but I still wanted to draw the map (and I plan on using a plastic battle mat and drawing the rooms real quick when combat occurs).

I just like to have maps for the players to move around on during a dungeon crawl because it helps them visualize the space.

So that paper works really well for the locations that are normal buildings, like the wizard of wines, the coffinmaker's shop, the basement of the church in barovia, even Argynvostholt is small enough that you can fit it to 5' scale on one sheet (you have to kind of leave the ruined side of Argynvostholt off the map, but no big deal). And if you need more room you can tape two of the sheets together.

As for Castle Ravenloft, I'm still not sure what I'm going to do. I could tape two sheets together but then my table isn't big enough to make that useable. The map of the castle that comes is an isometric 3d view which is really beautiful but even if you had it printed out, you couldn't really play on it...

On the other hand, Strahd will be hunting them through the castle since his main difficulty comes from the fact that he can just a lair action to just phase through walls--meaning he's going to be moving through the rooms pretty freely, so I think it's important to have them all modeled. I'm still not sure what I'll do. I want to draw the maps but it's just so huge. I might do the same thing I did with amber temple, and draw it in 10' scale, but then I'm stuck having to re-draw any room where combat takes place, and it makes combat between rooms cumbersome. IDK.

Things you can roll ahead of time to save time:

  • The content of the wagons at Tser Pool.

  • Initiative for all the monsters you KNOW will make appearances

  • Madnesses and traits for the mongrelfolk in the abbey

  • random encounters in castle ravenloft (lots of unoccupied rooms here)

  • the results of pulling the rope in K30


    Some other random cool stuff I'd like to suggest you think about...

    Think about who should get the Blood Spear at Yester Hill. When they get there, the spirit of Kavan, a barbarian warlord, calls out to the most appropriate PC and invites them to take up the spear and rule the tribes. The spear's temp HP gain on kill works for anyone but the chosen PC gets to use it as a +2 spear. If you have an obviously perfect PC for this, like a barbarian, or a ranger or something, then that's great. My suggestion is that you give them weird prophetic dreams of this Kavan, as he gazes out over yester hill sometime long before strahd ever moved into the valley. I like the idea that he keeps a wary eye toward mount ghakis in these dreams, as a kind of very subtle warning against the amber temple. Basically show him, show the spear, maybe even show him doing battle with a giant goat, or a roc. Nice foreshadowing for when the party crosses tsolenka pass and fights these themselves. The chosen party member will probably have the spear by then and will sort of feel like they're really chosen by Kavan. Cool.

    Be aware of how dang easy it is to get on the bad side of the burgomaster of vallaki. As written he is very thin skinned. If you kick the party out of vallaki too early you're gonna cut off a bunch of quest threads. So be careful! If you have Izek play the way he's written, and immediately try to abduct Ireena, that is almost certainly going to lead to a fight and lead to the characters being kicked out of Vallaki. So definitely think about what you want to happen here. I kept Izek's creepy obsession and the dolls and all that, but I did not have him try to abduct her immediately. I may not have him do that at all because it's uncomfortably rapey. It just says he takes her to his bedroom...yeah idk, I didn't want to mess with that, you know?

    Also, don't feel like you have to spring the Bluto-Arrabelle event the very first time the party might go by the lake. Sometimes they will be too busy to want to deal with anything and if you pull the trigger there's no going back and arrabelle will be dead. The party will be in and out of Vallaki a lot so it's fine for this to be something that comes up the second time they arrive--especially if they are, say, coming back from the west, that way the vistani can stop them on their way in and ask if anyone's seen a little girl around. Then once in town, people are talking about Bluto acting strange/not showing up at the bar today. Etc.

    The 3 night hags at the windmill are beyond deadly for a level 4 party if you play them no-mercy. Just be aware of that fact. Lots of things in CoS are that way. The 6 vampire spawn in the coffinmaker's shop also qualify. Just be aware of this and make sure your players know that they can't necessarily kill everything they come across. Hags will be glad to make deals with the party rather than slaughter them, and the vampire spawn situation can be approached in such a way that it's manageable.

    Curate your tarokka deck readings. There is a greater than normal chance that items wind up somewhere in the castle. You should make the decision on whether this is something you want. The sword and symbol make things a lot easier on the party. You don't want them showing up too early, like at Tser Pool or somewhere easy like that, but you don't want them showing up right before the end of the game, either, probably. If you think your party would enjoy the card drawing aspect, you have a few options. Let them draw cards, but then whatever card they draw, just give them the reading you want out of it. Or you could simply build in redundancies, so that x card and y card both lead back to x card's location, in order to prevent y location from happening, but preserve some randomness. Of course then you run the risk of drawing X card and Y card back to back... in which case you can designate a spot for that, and default to it if that happens. It's messy, but it's better than all 3 treasures winding up in the basement of the castle or something impossible like that.

u/protectedneck · 1 pointr/dndnext

You've got a couple of options. You can scale everything down. I did that with the Temple of Annam fight, since the room in 1-inch to 5-feet scale is almost 5 feet wide. Doing something like "each square is 15/30 feet" works pretty well to reduce the size of the map but still let you use minis. You just have to make sure that the players know about this an are understanding of any potential issues with distances. If you're still using 1inch scale minis then it'll involve handwaving stuff like how characters can't share 30 feet of space.

You can make a giant map. I like this for major locations. For example, the Thane Kayalithica stone giant fight I used foam core board from the dollar store that I cut into 6 18-inch squares and then carved a grid on them and painted it with cheap craft store paint. It took probably three hours to make. Was it necessary? No. But it was cool adding tiles to the table as players explored the darkened room.

Also an option is using large pads of paper with 1-inch squares on them. I wouldn't necessarily go with that one from Amazon since I think it's more expensive due to shipping, but you can pick up something like that from Staples easily. Also you don't necessarily have to get all of the room, just the part of the room the players are in/near.

Also theater of the mind works well for large spaces. I like having a small drawing of the room and the general position of any creatures/features so the players can visualize something. With the exception of the encounters in chapter 2 and the final fight with Iymrith, you aren't usually dealing with a lot of combatants, so it's decently easy to keep track of everything.

I've used a combination of all 4 options, depending on the amount of setup time I have, the relative importance of the encounter, and other factors. For example, one on one fights with creatures work best in the theater of the mind.

u/TheEdExperience · 1 pointr/DnD

I don't DM, but I made a whole bunch of tokens for my party using washers and a 1-inch hole punch. The first batch will require some up front cash but once you get going, it'll be cheaper. I've also seen people use Magic cards. If you don't have a printer just get colored construction paper or something.

The edges tend to peel up so either make sure you glue the edges well or get something to protect the token.

Then just get something like:

And use theater of the mind until there is actual battle. If it's not a combat encounter, no point in going through the trouble of tokens and drawing a map. Unless you want your players to think combat is possible.

u/kcunning · 1 pointr/Pathfinder_RPG

When I start a new AP, I'll go back and forth between reading the first book of the AP and looking at forum / blog posts about running it. I won't read the whole path, since it very well may not work for the group. I pay special attention to who the important NPCs are since I like to make sure that they're memorable, even if that book only has one short encounter.

Before a session, I have a list of things I try to get through:

  • Read the material for the current session as well as the next session. Even if I don't plan on running the next encounter, sometimes I'll cap a session that ran too quickly with some prep for the next few scenes.
  • Make an outline of scenes that I can reference during the game, with points I need to hit. I hate it when I accidentally forget to drop a key piece of information and have to work it in later.
  • Load up all of the NPCs and monsters in Hero Lab so that I know that they have no errors and that I don't have to buy any supplements.
  • If I have a complex layout that isn't combat heavy, I set up Roll20 maps
  • For any area that DOES have combat, I draw them out on [](large sheets of grid paper). We have the erasable mats, but I find those harder to draw on because they smudge.
  • Send out any notes to the players and ask for their HL portfolios

    I also tend to work a few sessions ahead, if I can, because I hate rushing stuff the day of the game.

    Back when I did home brew, I tried to think of sessions as very episodic: What's the set-up for this session, what's the pay-off, and how does it move the story forward? I'd write out the first few session in great detail, but be more vague as I planned out the rest of the story, since who knows how the players would effect the world?

    Your best bet to not get mired in world creation is to set a start date for the campaign. Whatever you have by then is what you're going with, and the rest will be improv, or will come to you between sessions. The best campaigns I've run have been ones where the background was fairly easy to grasp for most players. You can even start without a map. In my HBs, I started everyone in a small area and only bothered with mapping things out as they traveled.

In-shower notepad. Saved my life. All my best ideas happen in the long hot showers I take.


Also, Try to develop a 1 page "vision board" with all your current thoughts/ affirmations that have benefited you. Everyday, if you have a brilliant thought, you can tell yourself does it fit on my 1-page "vision board", if no, then it's easier to forget about it. It's all about minimizing, filtering. Not about making more lists. Make those lists potent. Keep your mind on a one page Vision board, and it will help center your thoughts.

u/srm038 · 1 pointr/DnD
u/chitownaeron · 1 pointr/OneNote

upvoting in hopes others add to this.

Here's mine. As a student i have a courses notebook. each class gets a section. Each semester of classes get a section group. Thats the hierarchy. I too use a surface with the pen. when i get to class i pull out the tablet, launch ON with a click of a pen, if its not already open and add a new page. ill write down what is being taught while simultaneously recording audio for anything i may have missed. after class or at the end of the day ill go back and rename the day's page and might highlight some of the key points from the lecture. if the teacher passes out any papers, ill take a quick snap with Office Lens and file them with ON. I don't like holding on to papers so they get tossed. and thats pretty much it. Every thing just gets either written, sent to, saved in, or printed to ON and filed to the proper notebook to keep for ever.

I'm sure the venue should suffice for your note taking need. your method of note taking is completely yours. whether its web, outline, bullet journal or any of the many other ways. My question is are you using the app or the desktop version of ON? that might be the difference maker for you. and if you do know the difference and use your preferred version, than perhaps it is the device and possibly consider the surface.

And if its how tablet writing feels in general than perhaps you might consider this

its a notebook that you can use with an app to upload to any of your preferred note applications and when you're done with the page, pop it into the microwave and the ink erases like magic.

Best of luck op

u/Buddymc · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

Check this out:

A smart notebook, you use a ball point pen to write on it, then an app to capture and file to different locations - Dropbox, etc. When you are done you put the notebook in the microwave for a few minutes and the ink disappears and you can start all over again with a clean slate.

u/WorstAdviceNow · 1 pointr/LawSchool

It doesn’t have to be fancy either. I use something like this. Super small and light, I can slip it into the folio I use to hold my surface and take it to and from school. A lot of the 1L classes have a lot of people in them, and we’re crammed in pretty tight, so it actually takes up less room on the desk if you’re using it, which is nice.

I’m also a big fan of the Rocketbook Everlast and the Frixion pens. You can write on it, link a symbol in the app to a specific class/online service, then scan the page using the app. You can set it so that if you check the diamond symbol, the app knows it’s Property your property notes, and the notes go directly to the property folder in Dropbox. But if you check the heart symbol, it’ll be for law review and instead it will send it as an email attachment. Then when the notebook is full, you wipe the pages with a damp cloth, and all the ink is washed away and you can start over with a blank notebook; so one notebook can last you for many many uses. I primarily got it because our property professor didn’t allow computers in class to take notes, but have kept using it in other classes to as a supplement to my typed notes.

u/onlyhelpfulthings · 1 pointr/college

Have you ever heard of the Rocketbook Everlast? I was thinking about getting a tablet for notetaking when I found it, and now it's the only notebook I use. Pages that feel like paper but are completely reusable and quickly scannable with the associated app. You get all the benefits of digital notes with an analog writing experience.

u/MkinItAwkwardSince95 · 1 pointr/Lenovo

I use the Yoga 720 15", and I use every program that you mentioned and overall I love it! Tackles SolidWorks pretty damn well (Really gets going on simulations). BUT I will be honest it is quite awkward to use for notes because of its weight.

Have you ever considered something like this?

You write your notes out then after class you take pictures of them with your phone then upload them to your PC making the pdf. Then you wipe the pages clean and do it again.

I'm not trying to push you away from 2 in 1s I am just giving you my 2 cents. I am also a commuter student (I live an hour away from my school) so I know just how important it is to pack efficiently.

Another thing I recommend is the app called Officelens it allows you to take great pictures of the board during class and upload it to onenote.

Maybe this helps, also the new thing I keep seeing is called "re-markable" its like an ebook paper you can write on I believe, I dont have one. Its too expensive. But maybe that will accomplish what you're after?

u/vsync · 1 pointr/ADHD

Try carrying a notebook everywhere. Make it one that you can truly carry everywhere.

I carry this but these are even smaller. Both are soft so they fit in pockets. If there is any doubt as to whether it will fit you might even get the tiny one as an adjunct to your main one... just make sure you extract everything regularly (tear-out pages on the tiny one help).

Things like GTD and Bullet Journal methodologies help index and extract your notes. Make sure you keep up with the process and don't spend energy on keeping it perfect.

Now you might try making notes on your impressions/opinions of the movie or song, or thoughts inspired by it. You can refer to it (if it's recent enough) when it comes up in conversation. Friends might find it a little funny but they won't doubt you saw it any more, and there are worse things than being the creative one in the group who's "always writing and thinking". Who knows, maybe you build on some of your thoughts, maybe post them somewhere, maybe you have a new creative outlet.

Maybe try to lower the pressure of writing for you. Try carrying around a small notebook, like one of these and write while you wait in line or something like that. It will look to other people as if you're writing in a day planner or keeping a reminder, which is an extremely low pressure thing. It's possible the relaxed setting or scenario will take the pressure off of you to write.

Some of the things I've gotten that have made my life a little easier.

  • 12v 2-way splitter for the truck
  • Small Moleskine notebook (I write down addresses, run numbers, pertinent info because we do not have an MDT in our trucks)
  • Slim Wallet (I don't carry a purse to work and I will transfer my debit card, ID, and keep all my licenses in the wallet I linked, great for keeping in a pocket while at work. As a bonus, the company who makes the one I linked is from the city I live in.)
  • Window Punch These are pretty nice, not many places non-fire around here provide them on the trucks and they come in very handy if you need access and have beaten fire to the scene. I prefer these over the pen style.
  • Key Holder Good if she has a lot of different keys, some places still use keys to access their narcs, different parts of the building, etc.
  • Bluetooth Transmitter/Charger I have a new iPhone that does not have an aux port, these work great on our ambulances and have two fast charge ports to charge whatever you need. I use the splitter above to plug this and my GPS/Dashcam in.
  • Snack Subscription These are pretty cool a bit pricey in the long run though. Get pretty good/healthy snacks monthly with various price plans. Cuts back on the urge to grab that candy at the gas station if you have something better in your bag already.
  • Rite in the Rain Notebook Just ordered these and they haven't come in yet, they are awesome for onscene quick notes. Since we've moved to EPCR software I find that on really sick patients that we need to move and work on I still manage to keep physical notes which get shredded after the run is finished and it's transcribed to the computer. We use a normal flip book but these help organize things a little bit more, plus they're waterproof. Supposedly works best with their pens or just a normal pencil. Was a neat product I thought I'd try out and go from there. Also don't have to get the EMS version, plenty of other versions/styles to choose from.

    I'm sure there are more and I'll come back and add them as I can think of them, these are some of the non-medical quality of life items I add to my every day to make things more bearable.
u/_Discordian · 1 pointr/poetry_critics

I honestly haven't bothered to submit anything before, but I went ahead and dug something out of my notebook, the first least unformed and incomprehensible thing I could find:

If I don't get back on something, it's because I don't get email notifications from here, and sometimes go a week or more between visits. But feel free to PM me any time.

Writing can be a real struggle, especially when it comes to finding ways to express emotions. And poetry is it's own special struggle. It isn't as pure as composing music, and it's harder than simply writing prose.

Your honestly is incredible, and appreciated. I myself have been informed that I have ADHD, but I usually consider it "not being able to handle the really, really boring stuff." That's half an excuse and half an accurate description. They can tell me I have whatever they want as long as they prescribe me amphetamines.

I keep a small notebook, specifically one of these, but obviously much cheaper options in that form factor are available. And I prefer a Pilot G-2 or Uni-Ball Signo, black medium tip (.7 mm) on both. The pen is more important than the paper. Without the right pen the writing looks wrong to me, no matter what it is. I prefer writing everything by hand for the first few drafts, regardless of length. Basically everywhere I go, I have a pen and a notebook nearby. I end up doing most of my writing in the car.

As far as Reddit goes, I'm a relative newcomer, but you'll find all sorts of weird rules on different subreddits, and widely varying levels of how strictly they're actually enforced. This is a smaller sub, which tends to mean one extreme or another: very strict rule application or the rules are highly theoretical. I think they're more on the strict side here, but I have not empirically verified this.

Some subreddits are utterly fascist and have bots that remove your posts if you misplace a punctuation mark in the title or fail to capitalize "spoilers", but thankfully that isn't the case here.

Moleskines are a small leather bound notebook many people carry with them. Here is one example.

u/LaTuFu · 1 pointr/stepparents

Wow. I hate to say this, but this is a classic case of why a nobody should ever sign a legal document without a lawyer reading it first. Trust but verify.

The good news is, if you have been doing 50/50 shared since 2011, you can easily get this changed. (at least, in my state you can.)

Get a spiral bound notebook (not looseleaf--spiral bound or a hardback journal like a Moleskine) and begin recording a journal. Write down the dates that you pick her up, the dates that you drop her off with BM. Write down all the events that you attend with SD ("you"= Husband moreso that you specifically in this circumstance) and note if BM was there or not. Don't speculate what she was doing or make any comments about her behavior. Just note if she was there or not.

Build up a document with 6-8 months of documentation (better yet, a year) for the custody, and you can go back to court for an amendment. You can make the case to the judge that this has been the pattern of custody and visitation since 2011. Request a modification of the custody to reflect the default. Most judges will accept that modification because it is already what the two parents are doing.

If you can look back on your calendar and "rebuild" a journal going back 3-4 months or longer, you won't have to wait the full year to accumulate enough documentation.

u/CashewGuy · 1 pointr/notebooks

I have no issues with the Moleskine paper, and quite enjoy writing on it. The only product that has some bleed-through is my soft-cover, and even that is negligible.

The Leuchtturm doesn't have a bleed-through problem, but a drying-speed problem. It dries so incredibly slowly that I had to sit for nearly 30 seconds to let some of the ink dry. This isn't a problem the Moleskines have. Writing with the pen turned upside down (finer point) shortens drying time, but is also annoying. I can't write in paragraphs without smudging, a problem I don't have with Moleskine.

These galleries may or may not demonstrate what I'm talking about, I don't have a great place to setup for photos at the moment (plotting for NaNo and some freelance work has my desk full of papers). It's also 3AM and I haven't slept in slightly over 48 hours. I'm adding Amazon links, but only because I have a tough time differentiating, and figure some others might as well. Interestingly, I had to take these pictures on my music table - the notebooks were all laying on "The Ink Spots" album.

Moleskine Classic Large, Ruled A

Moleskine Classic Extra Large, Ruled A

Moleskine Folio A4, Squared A

Leuchtturm1917 Medium, Dots A

I can write in the Leuchtturm (I'll never remember how to spell that) when I hold the pen (Sheaffer Imperial 440 - not my pic) upside down, but I really dislike doing that.

It could be the ink, I use Waterman Intense Black (Encre Noir - so much better that way). I am almost out of my 50mls, so I'll need new ink soon. If anyone wants to recommend a good ink for the Leuchtturm, I'll give it a go.

I will say that I do prefer a rougher texture. I enjoy the sound a rougher paper makes, and I like the feel of it under the pen. If I can't hear or feel the pen, I don't enjoy writing.

I personally find all this talk of "leagues" to be ridiculous. It shouldn't matter how expensive your notebook is. All that matters are these two questions:

  1. Does it cooperate with the pen?
  2. Do you like it?

    For me, Moleskine notebooks are both "Yes." For Leuchtturm, it fails on the first. If it's an ink problem, I'd very likely convert if I found an ink that cooperated.

I don't user nicer paper for everyday use because frankly, I go too it too much to be constantly buying more, but I do keep a couple of nice notebooks for special purposes.

  1. A Moleskine notebook/journal that I fill with quotes using different nice pens. These quotes can be from famous people or just someone close to me, but they're good to look through for inspiration/motivation when I need it.

  2. For similar purposes as #1, I have a Rhodia notepad where I write down all the milestones I want to achieve and have achieved in my life as a sort of "checklist."

    Here are the links to the aforementioned:

MS4 here. You've asked about note-taking specifically, so I'm going to set aside the other uses for a laptop/tablet+keyboard such as writing papers and watching lectures.

For what it's worth, I've taken the vast majority of my notes using pen and paper. I'm more intentional and thoughtful when I write notes by hand, which in turn helps me remember my notes better. I also find the muscle memory I retain from manual handwriting to be much stronger than from typing on a keyboard.

I know it isn't for everyone, but for me, nothing beats a good Moleskine notebook plus a Pilot G-Tec-C. I use these for note-taking, smartphone for internet at the hospital, and PC for research, writing & gaming. :-)

u/Vindictive_Turnip · 1 pointr/fountainpens

Hmm. That's interesting that it bleeds so much.

If you're the kind of person who likes individual notebooks for every class/subject, there are a few good choices.
Clairfontaine and Black 'n Red are both very popular. I've tried both, although not extensively. The downside to these is the price. If you are taking 4 or more classes, or even some note taking heavy classes where you may need multiple notebooks, the sticker shock factor grows quick.

For loose leaf/3 ring I'd recommend HP brand Premium Laser Jet paper. Either 22lb or 32lb. 22lb is great, and has handled everything I've thrown at it. The 32lb paper is really nice, and almost as thick as cardstock. A ream costs a fair amount, however. If you want it lined, you can find notebook paper templates on line, and have it printed for pretty cheap if you're providing the paper. You could go further, and have them bind notebooks. You'd have to get quotes though, and see if it's worth it to you.

EDIT: Also, buying those HP brand papers is WAY cheaper at the box of 5 reams level. That could possibly be all of a persons collegiate notes.

If it costs 30$ to buy the paper, then $.07 per page printing(largely the dependant factor, this is a conservative estimate not including price of 3 hole punching), that comes out to be $.08 per page. Compared to a 10 dollar notebook that has 70 pages(black and red. Clairefontaine only has 50) that costs $.20 per page.

Now I'm starting to wish I had bought the paper in bulk! I've bought 3 reams separately so far!

u/theillumedpanda · 1 pointr/fountainpens

> I just realized you might not be in the US! Silly American assuming everyone else is from here... There are other retailers with equal prices and you won't have to pay for the silly overseas/border shipping. I actually don't know any of them because well, I'm in the US :P, but if you make another post with your country and ask I'm sure you'll get an answer pretty quickly. Here's some from the wiki though

I haven't found an online retailer from Switzerland, or at least not a company with a bigger variety of different companies. We do have some stores, but they usually sell a few Caran d'Ache pens and the more expensive pens I'd say.

> No experience with the 3776 personally, but I see the name pop up a lot and haven't heard anything bad yet so that's a good sign! Personally I would see if you can find a Lamy 2000 (F) or (EF) on either /r/pen_swap, Amazon, or some local website for around 100. Retailers will be 160 USD, but you can find them brand new for 100 on Amazon for some reason. Or used for 80-100. I say (F) or (EF) because the Lamy2k always seems to run a bit wider than normal and it's a wet pen. If I could only have X amount of pens though, Lamy2K would always be in that list.

Lamy 2k for $100 on Amazon? That seems like an incredible deal to me. I haven't found anything though. Would you mind sending me a link?

> It's around 30usd, but a TWSBI Eco is nice for school. It has a massive capacity. Swirling around the ink when you're bored is nice too :P

Cool, I like the look a lot. I'll add it to my list and see which one I'd like to try. I can only assume that my next Gouletpens order is going to cost a lot. Do you know if there's any coupon or some sort of first purchase discount? :D

> For 60ish USD there's the TWSBI Diamond 580. Basically just a more expensive Eco from my understanding. I'll probably get crucified by someone for that comment, but oh well.

Haha, alright. Added to the list as well.

> For 40 there is the Faber Castel Loom, I've never used this guy, but I keep hearing great things.

Faber Castell seems to be much more readily available in Switzerand. Are the Faber Castell pens okay? I could also try these out.

> Hmm I'm not sure tbh. All my classes atm are online until August so I'm not really racing to take notes like I would be in a classroom. None of my inks seem to take long to dry though. A major part of this is how thick does the pen write, and how wet. Like my Lamy2K is actually a (B) so If I wrote with that on my Rhodia pad and flipped pages immediatly after writing it would 100% smear. That's the pens and papers fault though. The reason we want to use 'good' paper is so that the ink will pool ontop of the paper and dry instead of soaking in instantly and going through to the next page (bleedthrough) or spreading on the same page and feathering.

I think I just have to experience it myself to see what goes well for me and what not. Thanks for the input.

> For school I've been told to get Red n Black notebooks because they are cleaper and since they are a slightly 'worse' paper ink will absorb faster. I think this is it

I don't think it makes sense to import a cheap product to Switzerland, because shipping would probably cost more than the product itself. Maybe I can also find good paper in our local stores.

> I did quick search for fast drying inks and here's some that popped up. Most of these are 'bulletproof' meaning they are waterproof or really resistent. Good if you think there's a chance you'll spill a drink on your notes :P I still use fun colors because these are all pretty much black, but bulletproof is hard to argue with.

Not too sure if I like that or not. Honestly, the variety of different colours is what makes it a lot more interesting. Maybe I can try it out one day and see if I like it or not. Thanks for the suggestion!

> Last thing to note, about the Lamy2K (or any pen), If you decide to get one later you can get one with two nib sizes on the same pen!!! For example I have a (B) and you get get a nibmeister to reverse grind it so that it writes (B) one way, and (F) the other or whatever 2 grinds you want. You just have to buy the bigger size so they have something to work with.

Oh that's cool! Alternatively, I can also buy different nib sizes, right? But that sounds like a good option to go with.

Engineering paper is a light green color. This is to make text and drawings easier on the eyes. In addition the gridded patter doesn’t cover the whole page to leave room for margins and a heading. Finally (and most importantly) engineering paper is only meant to be used from one side. The grid pattern is printed very bold on one side of the paper and it shows through to the other. You write on the non-bolded grid side. This is what an engineering pad looks like:

TOPS Engineering Computation Pad, 8-1/2" x 11", Glue Top, 5 x 5 Graph Rule on Back, Green Tint Paper, 3-Hole Punched, 100 Sheets is all I ever use. I use them for notes, sketches, even tracking HP when I'm DMing in my D&D campaign...

I have been single my whole life. Never been asked on a date, never been kissed etc. I'm just waiting for the right guy to come along! Without a SO I still accomplished being valedictorian of my high school class and am now on honor roll in my third year of studying Engineering.

Here is something that is helpful in my studies! :)

u/annaleaf · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

So I use a blank moleskin, but I know a lot of people RAVE about the Leuchtturm 1917 with the dotted grid, so I may upgrade to that soon. Apparently the grid is a life changer.

Edited to add link so you can add it to your wishlist if you want

A5 is my preferred form factor and it seems like there is a definite lacking in that size for good notebooks that aren't lined or blank. I'm currently using some random shitty one I found on clearance at Target that is gridded, which is sort of almost as good as dots or crossfield. Leuchtturm is probably your best bet.

u/b3k · 1 pointr/Reformed

I'm not really sure what the difference is the single column journaling format looks like how I'd imagine a wide margin Bible, but with lines for writing. Do you want lines?

Depending on what you mean by "extensive note-taking" you could also look at an interleaved journaling Bible, or do what I do and find a Bible that you like and put your notes in a notebook.

u/krokodilmannchen · 1 pointr/ethfinance

Sure! How old is she? I highly recommend she start with a dotted Leuchtturm A5 ( and maybe some pocket notebook like the Moleskine ( ones - great for field notes! I use this setup. Also, get her some pencils and stuff to draw! Just the other day I put this in my small notebook: It's about having fun!

I'd love to talk to her about it!

u/thefaderist · 1 pointr/bulletjournal

I currently use a gridded Moleskine, which has been great so far.

However, I just received a dot grid Confidant from Baron Fig for the coming year and it seems an awful lot like it might permanently replace my Moleskine. Thicker paper, shorter and wider. No pocket or elastic strap, but goddamn it's simple and gorgeous.

The Leuchtturm 1917 is also popular. If I decide I like my Moleskine better than my Confidant, this is probably what I'll switch to. I get the impression that it's quite similar to a Moleskine, but maybe built a bit better, heavier with the pages, and also is available in dot grid.

Rhodia pads: Most people will mention these. Extremely smooth, very fountain pen friendly. So smooth, however, that inks like Noodler's Black that are formulated for crappy paper take forever to dry on it. They also come in books. Most people get used to the dots and never go back.

Clairefontaine: I'm not familiar but people mention them a lot and they seem like a very economical choice. I think they're more popular in Europe as school notebooks.

Midori: The Japanese don't mess around when it comes to writing. While basically naked compared to Leuchtturm or Moleskine, these have buttery smooth paper that while thin, feels fantastic to write on and doesn't bleed. There's a coveted cotton version (important because cotton is archival and good for watercolor) but I've never been able to track one down. It doesn't help that the online american outlets are poorly translated and usually don't know what they're packing since they look the same. See also: Apica

Leuchtturm 1917: A great journal or idea book, basically a Moleskine with better paper and perks. I used this as a daily journal. The pages are thin enough that you get ghosting especially with darker black inks but I write on both sides anyway.

If you're looking for a sketchbook I've spent a little too much time researching them and I think Stillman & Birn are really the one and only choice. Not only are they cheap by a price/sheet ratio but the quality is outstanding - extremely durable binding that tolerates being turned inside-out, thick paper with a variety of finishes so you can make a decision of what suits your medium. Epsilon or Gamma are the way to go for pure line ink work, though I've gotten away with light washes.

Hope this helps, enjoy your pen.

I always travel with a notebook. It's very nice too. Leuchtturm. I also travel with a fountain pen. However I use those for work. I bullet journal for my work stuff. For other stuff I have a rain proof memo pad and a fisher space pen (the little bullet one). That's been fine for just jotting down notes and stuff. That notebook has held up to a lot of abuse though. I only go through maybe one a year, but they are a pain to replace overseas (I wasn't able to), just FYI.

Sorry for photo quality. First post ever on this so be gentle. Starting from top row, left to right:

u/ki77erb · 1 pointr/EDC

Before the list, I would just like to personally thank all of you on the EDC sub. Many of the things I use everyday, I bought after seeing them here and reading your reviews and recommendations. I love seeing the diversity of the tools and stuff you all use. I'm including links to where I got my things just to save anyone the time searching.

Here's my EDC on a budget...

Phone: OnePlus 5t (8GB/128GB). Recently replaced my aging Nexus 5. No phone has ever been perfect in my eyes, but the 5t is awesome and lightning fast, and it doesn't have a bunch of bullcrap and bloatware.

Knife: Gerber Suspension. I have several knives, but this is the one that goes with me everywhere. The pliers, screwdrivers and scissor get used more than the blade.

Watch: Timex Field Chrono. Inexpensive, accurate and reliable. Plus I think it looks cool.

Flashlight: J5 Tactical V1. Got this to replace my Mini-Mag LED that constantly flickers with even the slightest shake or bump. I used to love Mags when they had incandescent bulbs. They really f'ed up their LED tech though.

Field Notes: I also do drone photos for real estate and I use this as a flight log.

Other stuff: Cheap glasses because I lose or break them about every 6 months. Chapstick, Levis wallet, car keys, G2 pen, wallet survival card ($1 at Walmart) comes in handy.

Not pictured: Altoids to cover up the coffee breath. Ringke Fusion phone case.

u/ryan9699 · 1 pointr/EngineeringStudents

I ended up using these for work and school these past couple semesters. Has helped a ton!

Plus it also is neat having a bunch of these filled out and dated to see where you've come from and what you've accomplished- cool stuff.

> Do you sketch on the front and back or just one side?

Both sides. I sketch a lot with blue ColErase pencils, which aren't as smudgy as graphite, or in ink or gouache, which won't rub off onto the facing page. Usually I'm not too fussy about my sketchbook stuff but if I've got something I really don't want to get too fucked up, I'll tack a piece of tracing paper onto the page.

> Do you do multiple sketches on a page or just one per page?

Loads. An empty bit of space on a sketchbook page is a place to practice drawing, like, a hand or something like that. It's there to be drawn in.

> Do you have multiple sketchbooks going at once?

Yep. Different sizes; a big one that I keep handy in my studio space, a smaller one for carrying around, one with gray paper, one with tan paper, and a kraft paper scrapbook for doing gouache sketches in so I'll stop wrinkling up my regular sketchbook. (But that one I only use one side of each page, because it would get wrinkly otherwise. The paper's heavy but it's not that heavy.)

On a side note, I always keep one of these Field Notes notebooks handy for writing things down, separate from my sketchbook. Artists I want to look up, notes from a book I'm reading or video I'm watching, color palettes I want to try out, whatever. If it's art related and important enough I want to remember it, I write it down. I've tried using my sketchbook for this in the past, but I've just found it easier to keep the two things separate.

u/Baron_Boroda · 1 pointr/magicTCG

I have a Field Notes notebook in my wallet. So between grocery lists, notes, and phone numbers of people I've met, there are all these pages with two columns of numbers starting at 20 and going down to zero.

Oh hi Mark

I would so suggest taking a small trip with some friends. Three out of my five years in college my friends and I went up to my parent's mountain house in NC and snowboarded. We had so much fun and we drove and split the costs on gas plus the place was free to stay. So it made it affordable for all of us to go. Those were literally some of the best times of my life. :) Make tons of memories while you still have the chance in school :).

[My item] ( I always get really great thoughts and ideas in the shower with no where to write them down.

This waterproof notepad.

u/Thjoth · 1 pointr/beards

It's Rhodia dot matrix paper, which is a bit different from just printing out the dots on a piece of printer paper. It's heavier paper, for one, and it bleeds a lot less for really wet-writing pens. I'm not sure if Rhodia makes a proper spiral notebook with that ruling or not, but they do make what are basically legal pads for it.

I wish there were more companies that offered the dot grid ruling, because it's really useful. I have a bunch of little ultra-ruggedized Field Notes Expedition Notebooks that I keep in a shirt pocket with a Space Pen at all times, especially when I'm in the field, and the dot grid is great because you can use it as normal note paper and then switch over to using it to make really legible tables or graphs without it looking like all clusterfucky with the lines everywhere. Plus, that particular notebook is effectively indestructible. Pretty much the only way you're going to lose it is if you set it on fire.

u/NefariousHippie · 1 pointr/Calligraphy

Well, I am still a newbie, but here's some advice just from what I have tried. Please correct me if I'm wrong! Also, I do broad-nib stuff, so if you're doing pointed things I can only repeat what I've read here.

I'm just assuming that you don't have any local art stores that are more convenient than ordering online, but if you can go somewhere local, I recommend just going there and feeling up some paper. Look for something with at least 100g/m^2 (it should say on the front, around where it says how many sheets and the size of the paper). Things marked for wet media are good, just feel it with your fingers for how smooth it is. I know "sizing" is important, but I have no idea how to actually look for that. Also, for beginning practice rather than finished pieces, just looking for smooth stuff seems to work fine so far for me.

This canson sketchbook is what I've been using predominantly, because I already had it. It is not meant to hold a ton of ink, so it warps when I use watercolors, but for calligraphy it's worked well so far. It's in a spiral binding of course, sorry. I like the portability for practice. :]

If you check my comment history, my 'word of the day' posts for Kafkaesque and Bhakti were on this paper. It holds well and I can see guidelines through the paper if they're in pen, which is nice! It isn't super smooth though, so I don't know how well it would work for pointed nibs. The 5.5x8.5 is kind of small for large nibs (wouldn't recommend larger than 2mm because you wouldn't get many letters in).

I've also used watercolor paper. The brand I have (Artist's Loft 'watercolor pad' 140lb/ 300g/m2) is really nice, but I don't see it on amazon. Other watercolor papers should work fine, as long as they're smooth and whatnot. I hesitate to recommend any in particular just because I don't know how the paper feels.

Watercolor paper is more expensive, however, this pad is 24 sheets, 22x30cm, for I think it was $10-15, as opposed to that sketch pad which is ~$10 for 100 (smaller) pages in the store. All the large pads like this that I have used have paper that comes out of the binding easily (even when you don't want it to, like just flipping it open to the next page, oftentimes), so this might be as closer to loose leaf as you may get.

A lot of people have mentioned using Rhodia paper before for practice, but I've never used it personally.

Even if you can't find anything perfect, I recommend getting something decent but cheap and just getting started. :] 80g isn't too bad of a weight, and a lot of people even practice on lined notebook paper in a pinch. Printer paper does tend to feather for sure though, unless you write really quickly, which doesn't gel with calligraphy you're one of the super crazy good people in this sub who churn out magic in 20 seconds. ;]

Edits: clarification on numbers.
