I am going to be brutally honest here and I know it's my fault for not taking notes during the notepad and pen podcast. I listened to this podcast several weeks ago and forgot what I should have as a notebook. I did just the opposite of the podcast and purchased a flimsy notpad at the supermarket. I re-listened to the podcast today and had some specific questions about the notebook. I work for Federal Law Enforcement agency and am making around $60,000 in DC. What are some suggestions as to a good notepad and pen? I currently have a notepad from my university (I am a new proffesional just graduated two years ago) my notepad is black that has a zipper on three sides. The It is a leed's notepad, pretty standard. The inside has a notepad on the right and the left has business card slots and i.d. Should I just keep this notepad with me. I really do not like the notepad because when I want a new page I have to flip the page up and it looks sloppy. What are your suggestions?
