Another New Year Resolution: Write More

ink & pen

One of my resolutions for this year is to write more. Not just write more posts, but write by hand more.  Since I have a job where I type on the computer all day, my penmanship has been going downhill ever since college.  I recently bought a fountain pen to inspire me to write by hand more.

The fountain pen (a ubiquitous Lamy Safari) of course came with blue ink, which I dislike.  Luckily, I foresaw the scenario and ordered a bottle of Noodler’s Ink Bulletproof black ink.  It’s not their blackest ink, but black enough for everyday use without having to worry about it bleeding through pages.

One thing I like about Lamy, other than inexpensive but great fountain pens, is that their packaging is simple, functional, but fun.  The box (in the back) the pen came in had perfectly cut little windows showing the pen inside.

Some Stuff I Wrote

Some may already know this, but when I’m not writing here, I write in a few other places too. I write game reviews for Siliconera and I do weekly restaurant reviews for Culver City Beat. If you haven’t figured out from reading all my posts by now, I love games and food.

I don’t know if this is helpful or not, or if anyone cares, but I’m thinking about just doing a weekly or bi-weekly link dump of other things I’ve written recently. That way, people won’t be out of the loop if they only visit this site.

This week, I reviewed Elebits DS on Siliconera. The game was surprisingly fun because I was expecting something childish and boring based on the game cover. Boy, was I wrong. It’s an adventure game like Zelda, but with puzzle elements and collect-stuff elements from Pokemon.

I also wrote a review of Tara’s Himalayan on CCBeat. I’ve had lunch at this restaurant a handful of times already and I’m still not sick of it. I always order their mango lassi because well, I can never refuse it. My favorite dishes here are the momos, which are like dumplings, and the chicken tikka — a chicken curry stew almost.
