I dont know what's with Paper Pads and Pens that my heart melts everytime I see one. The clean sheets and the colorfull pens just gives the hope that life will never be boring as long as I have them both. Having the freedom to write anything you want, having someone who can absorb all your emotions is just a something I can't trade anything for.
So when did I start collecting or shall I say fell in love with journals? Back when dad was still working out of town and I was still in grade school, everytime he comes home, he always bring something for his girls. From clips to stickers then the stationaries. We always look forward for the stationaries. It's something that he personally hand picks just to make sure that his girls gets the best designs available. He would then ask us to close our eyes to make it more exciting and for the purpose of us not quarelling over who got the better pads. The excitement and eagerness of our faces to see the designs would turn into delight the moment we opened our eyes. It went on that way for a couple of years. Maybe that's where I got my love for papers and pens. I then started collecting notebooks and paper pads with cute designs. I just can't get enough of them. It's not just the design nor the pleasing covers.. it's the memories and the untold stories that are yet to be written.
