"I'm in a similar situation. I've never used a fountain pen before, and I think I'd like to start. I've looked a Parker and a Waterman. I'm not sure what weight of a line I would like the pen to produce. I currently use a…"

"I'm still trying to do the Mentor thing. I need to update my resume and linkedin as well. I never did take a woman on a date - terrrrrrible timing. So I guess I'm 12/15 but I am making an honest effort on the mentor finding.
