An anon asked me about my highlighters, so here they are!
I use Java Duplex mild color highlighters, and I absolutely love them <3 I just bought a few colors from my favorite stationery store here in Seoul, and I liked the colors I bought so much that I went back and got a few more. This brand does have the more traditional, super-bright highlighter colors, but I personally don’t like those colors. They’re a bit too harsh for me.
Anyway, I’ve been using these highlighters for a long time now, and they’re great. The colors are gorgeous, and they write very smoothly. Also, they have a chisel end for normal highlighting and a fine tip for underlining and writing notes and all so I don’t have to switch between writing utensils when taking notes.
