I just love being in a bookstore... Borders, Barnes and Nobles, Kinokuniya, Times, or even Gramedia. The place just have a certain comforting feel, much like my haven, a place where I can have a piece of mind.
Well other than the free magazine viewing and looking at those cute bookmarks, etc, the thing that I L O V E about Borders, in particular, is the Paperchase products that they sell.
It's like the Dior for stationaries, I guess.
The price is somewhat unreasonable for a piece of book that you're going to tear up and use anyways... the design is minimalist and graphic-y [I know that's not an actual word...] and I guess they use a different quality of paper to make it.
I especially find the 4 Subject Notebooks and the squared black notes that they have usefull and fun to use.
Being a geek, I'm very obsessive-compulsive about my stationaries...
it needs to be the best, it needs to be something that would make me happy using it, it has to be unique, and most of all it's usually colorful. Hahaha...
With class pressure and the stress of daily assignments, we might as well be comfortable enough to use our stationaries that are not boring, which in a way, got us ecstatic to at least having the effort of opening our notebook, right??
Anyways... another thing...
I stumble upon to a self-help book [sadly to say], namely, "Honey, It's All In The Shoes"
it says that choosing a boyfriend is much like choosing the perfect shoes.
You know how one shoes would be too loose, while another one is too tight.
Or that high-end branded shoes that are not very comfortable, yet very costly.
Or another mass production shoes that is comfy, but you're ashamed to be seen in.
Or cute, unique, fashionable shoes, but everybody seem to have it.
Or a sophisticated shoes, but it's hurting your feet.
You'd settle for flip flops, but it's obviously not suitable for more formal outings.
Sneakers are too boyish [for some people, like me]
High-heels are perfect but only comfy for so long
Flats, wedges, fantophels, boots... out of all the ooh so many shoe selections...
which one would you wear the most? which one's you love the most?
I just think it's a smart analogy...
