The saga of my titled notebooks continues…I recently went from “Lovin Life Again” to “Embracing the Unknown.” 📓 🖊 ✨
I’ve been titling my personal notebooks…Went from “Rewriting the Stars” to “Lovin’ Life Again.”
Already gave my next journal a title (on the right)…
“Getting My Act Together” ——–> “Re-writing the Stars.”
Goals and thoughts for new entries:
- Mixing art and text (a comic strip? a cartoon?)
- Reflections on identity and ideology
- Reflections on class material/pedagogy
- Reflections on reaching the end of senior year/future plans
- Fan doodles
- Plans for AMI Capstone film (production design, storyboarding, etc)
I drew a notebook.

I went to Staples to buy three class sets of composition notebooks. The bin said .50, so I was pumped and started loading up my cart.
I get to the checkout and the cashier rings me up and the total is upwards of $225. Now, I’m not good at math, but 90 notebooks at .50 a piece is not $225. I inform the cashier of this and they reply that if you buy more than 30 notebooks, the price becomes 2.50 or something a piece because they “don’t want people buying in bulk, they want everyone to be able to share the notebooks.”
The cashier takes pity though and asks, “Are you a teacher?” Um, yes. Obviously. Who else is buying 90 composition notebooks in one go? The cashier calls over their manager and the manager goes, “Oh, don’t worry, for teachers we make an exception.” So I get 90 notebooks for $45.
My question is… who are these mysterious non-teachers buying composition notebooks in bulk? Is there a composition notebook black market and, if so, where can I find it?
whyyYYyYYyyYYY are composition notebooks so expensive ?
