I can’t believe it’s been thirteen months since I purchased and started using the Seven Seas Standard! (Not to mention about thirteen months since I last posted…) Thirteen months may not seem like a long time. In my opinion as a stationery lover, however, if you still feel amicable towards a notebook-type product after thirteen months, not a whole lot can rend that relationship apart. Maybe you also know of the despair that comes with your own stubbornness as you gnash your teeth and refuse to leave behind a journal you didn’t really like. You become very familiar with a product’s lovable traits and quirks and detestable flaws.
