Hello World.

I'm Alicia, and I love pens.

My love for office supplies has been life long. As a child I anxiously awaited the beginning of the school year because I couldn't wait for the trip down the school supply aisle. A new pencil box, a fist full of pens and pencils, a brand new box of crayons, and I was in heaven.

I own a lot of pens, but I have a few serious favorites. I recently acquired a Pentel EnerGel pen and it is quickly becoming my go-to pen. The ink is seriously smooth and it just feels good in my hand. I chose a needle tip because I love the sharp, crisp lines and the smaller the tip the better. My second love is the Pilot G-2 .05. I was given one at my previous job and just fell completely in love with it. Very smooth lines, a nice rubber grip, and I just enjoyed the clear body so I could watch the ink go down.

I prefer roller ball pens to ball point pens, but the honest truth is that I love pens and pencils, markers and hi-lighters. I love to draw and doodle and write and scribble. I'm not much of an artist, but I love the process.
