What's In My School Bag?

Hello, my babies!

As I briefly mentioned in my last post, I will be starting college/university on the 5th of September. This is a significant moment for me because I see the beginning of university as the beginning of the rest of my life. I am voluntarily going to school, to get a degree, to get a job, to buy a house, to support a family. It's kind of a big deal!

In order to make sure I get that degree, I need to make sure I have everything I need! Today I'm going to talk you through the contents of my school bag.

My school bag of choice is a messenger bag by the brand, Merona. The bag is made of a canvas material with a detachable shoulder strap, faux leather detailing, and magnetic buckles. On the inside, the bag has a cushioned section for my laptop and a decent-sized zipper pocket for all of my loose items. I absolutely love the earthy colors!

Now, onto the contents of this gorgeous bag!

Computer & Charger Cord
My electronic notebook and the cord that keeps it alive!
Expanding File
Having an expanding file is much easier than carrying 5 individual folders around. It's also a wonderful place to keep my snacks.
Daily Planner
Essential for staying organized! I like to write down my assignments, my work schedule, and any events happening in my life.
College classes usually occur every other day. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I'll be carrying my Math and Communications textbooks. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'll be carrying my English and Philosophy textbooks!
Pens and Pencils
Obviously! I am a lover of all pens; black, blue, even purple if I'm feeling sassy.  I'm not a big fan of pencils though, so if I have to use them, I prefer to use mechanical pencils. They're just a little more fun!
Lip Balm
An absolute essential, especially during wintertime! I always feel much more confident with lip balm on.
Chewing Gum
Let's be honest; sometimes we just don't have time to brush our teeth in the morning. Whether you skipped out on your morning brush or ate a garlicky lunch, gum is a lifesaver.
Hand Lotion
The soap used in school restrooms is really harsh; at least on my little hands. A travel-sized hand lotion can be found in all of my bags, including my school bag!
You never know when you or a friend might need one! Plus, it's better to be prepared than to walk around asking strangers for one.
Nail File
You won't need it often, but when you do and you don't have one, it's impossible to think about anything else.
Every Monday and Wednesday, you will find a calculator in my bag!

That, my friends, is the contents of my school bag! I hope this post didn't make you cry at the thought of going back to school. I promise school will be alright as long as you stay on top of your work and stay out of drama! I wish you all a school year full of learning, personal growth, and edible school lunches.

Until next time,
