How paperless am I?

I keep all my paper documents in an orange plastic folder. I’ve had it for years now; that’s why it has those dog ears. Proof that it is actually useful! I am not planning to replace it anytime soon. My folder mostly contains my official documents: passports, certificates, and transcripts. Basically, all the documentation an international student needs for study. Russians love paperwork, so no matter how much I try to avoid it, they always find a way to make sure I have some.

I use A5 squared papers for tests during classes. I do classwork on my iPad Pro if I don’t have to submit it.  I have different colours for my papers—an effort to spice up my stationery collection!

I also have an old road sign chart; I got it when I was trying to get my driver’s licence ages ago. It doesn’t belong to me, so I have no right to throw it out. I intend to return it to my mom when I go home. I’m not sure she remembers it though; knowing my mother, she probably does!

My pens are not the most beautiful, but they get the job done.  Most of them don’t even have lids! The one pen that does has a lid with a massive hole on it! I have no idea how that happened. I haven’t bought pens in a very long time. Years, in fact!

Lastly, I have some old bond paper. I have had it for a while, lying idle in my folder. I use it for clerking patients when my professors won’t let me do it on my iPad Pro. Those cases are rare, though.
