I have always loved pencils.  There was never a moment  as a student where I wasn't searching for the perfect combination of graphite and cedar.  Now that I am a student again, my excitement for these fine writing instruments has had a resurgence.  This is meant to be a blog about my weekly adventures in pencilling. Originally from NJ, I now reside in Western MA with my wife and 5 (yes FIVE) cats.  I am working towards my MSW with the ultimate goal to do clinical work.  My other hobbies include video games, comics, Dungeons & Dragons and hoarding all of the Japanese school supplies I can get my hands on.
