I am a pen and pencil whore. I admit it. I have way too many.
Since dealing with my pens and pencils is the next on the purge list, I have to deal with my overabundance.
I’m going to start with my the pens and pencils in my filing cabinet at work. (In a future post I will deal with all of the pens and pencils in my house)
Honestly, I dont know why I have all of these pens and pencils. It kind of is ridiculous. There are 46 all together. 6 pencils and 40 pens.
The pencils shown are my favorite. Ticonderoga pencils. Black. Neon. Metallic. I don’t care what color or style. I love them all!!! I love the way they feel in my hand. I love the way they look. I love the way they write.
I dont love all of the pens. I love the pens I asked for/stole from the casinos in Vegas. I love the Bic Crystal pens and the regular blue Bic pens. I love the blue Promarx pens. The one black Pentel R.S.V.P and my pink Tul pen. I love the different colors and how smooth they write. The rest I don’t love. They are pens that are given out by the bank. Pens I bought at office max but didn’t like. Pens I bought at the dollar store because I liked the neon green and pink ones.
I love 23 out of 40 pens and all 6 pencils.
I think the reason I have so many is because I love different colored pens and the different colors of ink. I don’t like using the same pens every day. I use different pens and different ink colors every day.
If I’m only keeping what I love, then I have to get rid of the 17 pens. If so, then why does it feel like I’m cutting off my right arm?
When I gathered my pens and pencils to take home it felt like I was quitting my job and cleaning out my desk. I think its because my pens are the most important things in my filing cabinet. I’m not sure how i feel about this.
I love my pens and pencils. I think they help me express who I am.
I’m still trying to figure out why I have so many. I can’t think of anything from my childhood that would cause me to hoard pens.
Maybe it has something to do with my writing. I’ll have to think about this a little and let you know in a future post.
A mini purge completed. Yeah me!
No, I’m not counting the 17 pens in the total 150 items I am purging. That’s too easy.
