Stationary!

Can I just say that Japan (and Korea) have some of the. best. stationary goods evar? Today I went down to LOFT to get some white-out. I stayed there for close to an hour looking through the various monthly planners for the 2013-2014 year. There are just rows upon rows of planners. Some are covered with characters, from Sailor Moon to Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar. Others are meant to mimic the look of an 18th century European book. Of course there are the plain ones that proliferate the shelves of bookstores in the U.S., too.

erhmegerd! i'm in planner heaven!!11


It might seem strange to use a monthly planner when cell phones have been used in Japan for decades and smartphones have also become quite popular. Perhaps Japanese people are analog like I can be. Or, as I guess, having a planner is a way to display your personality. Girls with cutesy planners and guys with businessy looking ones. You don't just write in your planner. If you're a girl, you pimp that planner out. And there are lots of stickers, tags, highlighters, etc. to help your planner become the cutest of them all...
