Why do I write?

“Why do you write?” 

I got this question a lot when I showed my friends my notebook, my planner, or even my travel journals. 

“Why don’t you use a digital planner or technology instead?”

Certainly, technology is definitely useful and it helps a great deal in many aspect of my life, but I must admit that I’m still very much an old-school type of person. 

I started journaling at the age of 15 or 16.
Life is full of ups and downs, and I had no one to turn to. I started to pour my problems into my notebook, and I realised that journaling actually allowed me to come out with my own solutions, and it helped me to overcome many of the problems. From then on, notebook became my Best Friend. 

Journaling has now become a daily affair, if possible. 
As much as I can, I will try to set aside time daily to pen down my thoughts in my binder notebook, which I term it as Self Reflection. 
This is an important aspect of a busy life because it allows me to (1) pour out my emotion, (2) reflects on my behaviours, (3) solve my problems, and most importantly, it allows me to play with my pen(s). 

So, why do I write, I Guess because I feel like I am talking to my Best Friend, at the enjoyment is a time well spent.

Field Notes List has been updated.

To all my fans and friends, allow me to apologize for being inactive on this platform (Blogger).

I have been busy with studies, work, and some voluntary commitments for the past months; not forgetting that I am building up my health due to some health issue that happened in Dec 2018.

I have no give up using notebooks and I have now moved to a bigger notebook: A5 20-holes binder.
On top of that, I am also using my Traveler's Notebook and Field Notes.
Some days, when I have a little more time, I will blog about my new set ups.

And I am still selling Field Notes in Singapore, and I have set up a Carousell  account (Blank and Write) so that it will be easier for the local fans to search and get their Field Notes from that platform.

I have also updated the Field Notes price list with the latest editions and an update on the prices for some of the items.

In the next few days, I will also update Blank and Write Facebook Page, as well as the Field Notes Singapore Group.

Till then, please take care.

Regards,
Justin See

Coming back....



I have been away for the past months, busy with my studies, and trying to figure out what should I do with Blank and Write. 

I want to do more than just a notebook seller; I want to help people to improve their life, with the use of notebook, paper and pen. 

How about, improving, the Quality of Life?

The beginning of 2019.

First thing first, let me wish my readers out there, a Happy New Year!



2018 had been an exciting year, and a couple of major things had happened, which led me thinking that life is short, and we must treasure every moment of it.

Setting up my monthly planner for 2019.

2018 is coming to an end and it's time to prepare the planner for 2019. 

I bought the Traveler's Company refill 017 Free Diary <monthly> as part of my planners for 2019. 

Usually I'll get the dated planner, but this time, I wanted to try something different. 

I used Yosogo size 1 rubber stamp for Dec 2018, but realized that the numbers are a little big. 

And for the month of Jan to Mar 2019, I used a smaller stamps that I got from taobao. 

The size is smaller and the numbers fit neatly into the given space. 

Although the ink is a little too wet and it sip through the page, but I personally think it's beautiful. 

Are your planners ready?

It must have been a long while since I did a post...

Hi readers,

I hope all of you are well.... I am well too, just that I have been quite busy lately..
Like I have always like to tell my friends, busy is good....

Ever since the setting up my Carousell account, we have a constant flows of orders for Field Notes. So far, the sales for Field Notes Pitch Black Dot Graph has been picking up.
That little black book is the best place to keep your darkest secret!!

Another thing that is keeping me busy is with the toggling of my study-system..
I have been trying out different systems of keeping my lecture and handwritten notes, and have been switching between my MacBook, my printed notes, and my iPad.
I am still in the discovering stage, and maybe when things are more grounded, I can share with you my system.

Beside my updates, I will also like to share about a "toy", or "tool" I discovered lately.
They called it, The Wright Pen.

Update of my BuJo

After using Bullet Journal (BuJo) for about one month, I'm actually enjoying the process.
Honestly speaking, I did not follow the how BuJo should be, but rather, I created my own way of recordings that suit my needs.


After getting used to BuJo, I find it uncomfortable to write with my Life Journal at the bottom. As my Life Journal got fatter by the days, it actually take up more space in my Blue Traveler's Notebook (TN). So i removed the Life Journal and shifted it to my brown TN; and now, there only one booklet inside my Blue TN.

The pen which I am using my notes taking at home is the Uni Jetstream 101 (model number: SXN-101FL-07).
