One of the small, fun benefits of taking classes is the implied permission to collect supplies. Promotional pens and pencils, colorful clips, happy highlighters and a pencil sharpener that I forgot I even owned!
The coursework is hard and I will write about it in more detail someday. But every time I see pretty desk items on sale, I justify their purchases with, “I’m going to neeeeed this!”
They match the new life that I am crafting.
