Thanksgiving Weekend! we all know, Thanksgiving weekend has started for most of us and Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow. I haven't been posting a lot (if at all...), but I'm going to take a break from the 'webz for the weekend. While we're all stuffing ourselves with turkey, turducken, tofurkey, and whatever protein you eat for Thanksgiving, spend a few minutes thinking about what you're thankful for. If you're reading this, most likely, you're a lot better off than millions of people around the world. I'm thankful that I have a loving family, a roof over my head, there's always food in the house, that I've met so many awesome people in the past year, and I'm getting a good education. There's a whole lot more stuff I"m thankful for, but it'll take too long to post. So I have two questions for you...

1. What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
2. What are you thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving, and have fun for the rest of your weekend! :D

Field Notes: Levis Edition

"I'm not writing it down to remember later, I'm writing it down to remember it now."

I went to the mall over the weekend and remembered that the Levis store was selling Field Notes. Since buying Field Notes online wouldn't be an option for me (I have one book I picked up at an anime convention that's too pretty to use), I decided to buy a pack from there. These look nice to slip into your jeans pocket... Enough chit-chat and let's get straight to the review!

The graph paper notebooks are in blue, white, and red with silver printing on them. The back of the paper slip reads "I'm not writing it down to remember later, I'm writing it down to remember it now" which I assume is Field Notes' motto. The inside of the cover has printed what you would normally see in a regular Field Notes book. (I tried taking a picture of it, but the silver kept glaring at the camera.)

Overall, I love these notebooks although I haven't written in them yet. Heck, I don't even KNOW what the first pen strokes will be! To be truthful, I don't even know how to use graph paper notebooks, besides actually graphing something...

For anyone who's reading this and would like to comment, I have a few questions.
1. What can I use graph paper for?
2. If you bring a small memo book everywhere you go, what kind of stuff do you write in it?

Post it in the comments below!
