Pensieve: Omas Ogiva Alba in Green
Ever since Goulet Pens announced that they would be carrying the new Omas Ogiva Alba pens, I’ve wanted one. I can’t say why, really. I have a Platinum 3776 Century Nice with a very similar ribbed exterior (but it’s frosted/clear). The teal green Omas captivated me. Continue reading Pensieve: Omas Ogiva Alba in Green

So, one might wonder why on earth I would choose to keep a hand-written journal, a Midori calendar that I have to fill in myself, a written to-do list, and why I would grade student papers with fancy schmancy fountain pens?
