Uni Jetstream SX-217 Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Blue Black - UNI SX-217 BLUE BLACK
  I notice no difference..., December 8, 2013
I notice no difference between this blue-black and black ink. (I bought an orange jetstream and this one, and wrote side-by-side on the same paper.)

While I love the orange one, this style pen is also useful and pretty. I love the dark color and silver-y accents. It feels solid in the hand. The cap (as opposed to push-type) is nice because sometimes push-tops stain the insides of my bags.

Certainly feels much more upscale than $3!
Maruman Smooth to Write Loose Leaf Mini Paper - B7 Modified - 6 mm Rule - 3 Color Assortment - 9 Holes - 90 Sheets - MARUMAN L1431-99
  I love these. I love..., September 14, 2013
I love these. I love mini things, and use the different colors for different types of notes. They turn smoothly in my B5 notebook. The thickness is just right - not like index cards, and not thin like paper. The colors are soft, so you get good contrast with your writing.
Kokuyo Campus Smart Ring Binder - A5 - 20 Rings - Light Pink - KOKUYO RU-SP130LP
  So cute! I wanted to..., August 21, 2013
So cute! I wanted to mention how the rings work: the "spine" is like the tube in a ball-point pen. You push on the top, and the force transfers to a little spring at the bottom of the notebook. Then the rings can be opened, all at once. I was confused if it was like the Lihit-Lab, which seems to open in sections. I like this mechanism -- all the rings at one time.

I also wondered whether this A5 paper could fit into my Campus B5 26-hole notebook. It can, but with some labor. The ring-holes align, but to make the notebook pretty, there aren't top-bottom rings. If you put it into a B5 binder, you will have to trim the corners off the top or bottom where the B5 notebook has rings.

I like this a lot, for carrying in a really small bag, when even the B5 is too big.
Staedtler Textsurfer Classic Highlighter Pen - Yellow
 - STAEDTLER 364 A6-1
  The color is the classic..., March 3, 2013
The color is the classic highlighter-yellow, and as advertised doesn't smear over ink-jet printing. The cap is secure when closing the pen, but a little loose when placed on the end of the pen (in active use).

I also bought the little pot of refill ink, but I haven't needed it yet, after several months. It seems to last a long time, probably due to the chubby barrel.

I like the flat shape -- easier to control when marking text.

So these are the reasons I have abandoned the other highlighters in my desk. Too bad -- I have some nice Mildliners and Staedtler highlighting pencils, but I this one is the one I use all the time.
Kokuyo Campus Slide Binder - B5 - 26 Rings - Orange - KOKUYO RU-P334YR
  Pretty and flexible...., September 12, 2012
Pretty and flexible.

The covers are not too stiff or sharp. The tab dividers have a few lines printed them on -- I like that so I can write general notes for that section, such as phone numbers or big deadlines, etc. The rings/coil moves very smoothly. It doesn't snap open or closed. Instead, you pull the bottom tab and the right half of the coil slides to the right, along a little track. Then when you pull it closed, you use a little more force at the end, so it slots into place. It's less jarring than ring-binders that snap open loudly, or pinch fingers or other papers when they pop closed.

To me, having 26 rings instead of just three (as in some other binders) makes the pages turn more smoothly.

I like this size better than the American Letter (too big to carry around campus easily) and the Junior -- which is sometimes to small to take real notes.

Fun! I hope JetPens carries more loose-leaf binders in different sizes! I also ordered the Maruman loose leaf mini (like thin index cards) and I like the gentle colors much more than dark/vibrant ones. And the Maruman bi-fold refills. Oh, heaven.
