August is quickly approaching. You know what that means: school. You know what’s even better? School supply shopping!
I seriously think that if school-supply-shopping-time was a holiday, it would be my favorite holiday and I would be the mascot. I could be the school supply fairy. Okay, maybe now I’m going too far, but I just seriously love this time of the year.
I don’t know what about buying pens and pencils and post-it notes that gets me so excited, but it just happens. I love filling my pencil case with generic pens, BIC pencils, random highlighters, and pink post-it notes. I love picking and planning my outfit for the first day of school. I can already tell you what I am going to wear the first day of school, too, because guess what? I already have it planned! Something I especially love is packing my backpack the night before school starts (maybe more like a week before school starts…).
Before I started a blog and still to this day, I loved watching videos and reading blog posts about what girls packed in their backpacks. I don’t know if it’s my curiosity taking over me or if it’s my excitement. I have just always loved seeing what other people put in their backpacks. I think part of the reason I love seeing what’s in other’s backpacks is because I am one of those people who likes to be prepared for anything. I don’t want to be stuck in a situation where I am not prepared with the proper materials/tools. I probably read those articles so that I am super prepared for school! Yes, I’m strange- I love school and it makes me really happy. “Build a bridge and get over it” -Hannah Montana.
So, after that long ole introduction, here are my backpack essentials!
Backpack (duh) // Pencil Case // Pencils // Pens // Colorful Pens // Highlighters // Post-It Notes // Reading Book // Mini Stapler // Planner // Wallet // Keys // Water Bottle // Snack // Textbooks // Computer // Headphones // Calculator // iPhone Charger
All of these things are pretty typical, but the thing that you might be curious about is a reading book. I like to carry around a book that I am currently reading just in case the teacher is late or I go sit on the lawn after class. I also recommend having two pairs of headphones! Always keep one in your backpack, and then use the other pair for working out or Netflix! All of these things will probably be in my backpack at any given time, so if you need a mini stapler, I’m your girl!
