Better Writing Utensils

For most white-collar folks, your daily writing of to-do lists, notes, and the like is done with some nondescript ball-point pen from the office supply cabinet.

In an attempt to make everyday tasks feel a little more special, I like using something a little nicer, such as a mechanical pencil with an all-metal body, or, from time to time, even a fountain pen. It’s a small thing, but can be a tool that makes work feel a little more upscale and sophisticated.
