happiness is bought with the souls of white-board makers

To say that one of the bigger joys of my career right now is that I have my own white board and four colors of dry erase markers probably should be a worrisome development. I do not care. I have four colors of marker, a whiteboard that's also magnetic and with corkwood at the bottom, and life is awesome.

I have a thing for office things, sue me.

Now to collect more magnets!

I'm right there with you on the office supplies love. I've got a huge whiteboard in my office that's the envy of every editor in the building; apparently my predecessor managed to get a $1,000 "Whiteboard System" purchase through the higher-ups (when I figure out how she managed that, I'll be a true editorial genius). Editors from around the building come in to marvel at its expansive, magnetic, multi-colored glory. :-)

I've been there. Oh, how I've been there. :D

Congrats! Once one goal is achieved, time to move onto larger goals. ;-) :-D

One of my goals in life is to have a wall-sized whiteboard, unfortunately, whiteboard paint is a little expensive—$200 for a kit to cover 50 sq ft. (I have not yet shopped for magnet-friendly sheets of metal that big. Ditto cork.)

But, imagine my squee when I found whiteboard markers in purple and pink. So someday, I will have my whiteboard wall with my holy trinity of purple, pink and blue markers.

Ooooh! How I miss office supplies. I have a small whiteboard on my fridge and now I'm itching to go to Staples and get coloured markers!

One of the absolute best things about being a teacher is the whiteboard. I have like 98 different colors of marker. I have varying widths. If I ever got a SMARTboard, I would be thrilled, but I would miss the whiteboard a little bit.
