Back to School: What’s in my Backpack?
The school has started and as much as I want to complain about that, I’d rather show you what’s in my backpack. Because since forever, the only thing I was excited about going back to
school, was buying new school supplies! I’m in the 2nd grade of secondary school, but I still love shiny pencil cases and pink notebooks.
Feeling comfortable in school is quite important to me, so I don’t see myself with a fancy handbag. I prefer backpacks as almost all people on my school does. I have Dakine backpack for second year now and I couldn’t wish for a better one!
I’ve got this pink organizer (I'm not sure if it's called that in English). I glued some of my favourite pictures from Tumblr on it, as I hope they will make my time in school more bearable :). I keep all my notes from my eleven subjects in my organizer.
I think that the folder looks so cute, as it has people, quotes and names all over it. I usually put my tests, papers, rulers in it, so I use it quite a lot.
We had to wear slippers in primary school and we have to wear slippers in secondary school. These slippers were made by my mother who loves crafting, sewing... She actually made slippers for our family, relatives and my friends in the summer. And they are super comfortable!
I always keep a bottle of water in my backpack as I become very thirsty after 7 hours of studying.
Notebooks, workbooks and textbooks
I actually don’t get it why we need notebooks, workbooks AND textbooks. It only makes my spine hurt. But if I have to carry all these, at least I chose some beautiful notebooks, which brighten my day a little.
I bought this cute and small planer this year, which fits in my backpack or my purse and I can take it everywhere with me. I usually write in it test dates, oral questioning dates, my grades...
A special spot in my backpack is of course reserved for my phone.
This is actually the first year I have only one pencil case, I usually have at least two. My new pencil case is gleaming silver- who would believe I’m 16 haha. At the beginning of the year, this is the content of the pencil case: markers, highlighters, pencils (six isn’t too many, right?), ballpoint pencils, permanent markers, corrections pens, a pen, a rubber, a sharpener, scissors, and glue. I know I probably have too many things in it, but...
I have a small vanity bag with essential products (wet wipes, wipes, a lip balm, mini deodorant, hand cream, some hair ties and some bobby pins- they always come in handy). I don’t bring any make up products in school, because it’s really weird putting on makeup in school toilet.
Last but not the least, my wallet. I featured this wallet in my June Favourites and I’m still in love with it! It has palms all over it, so it will remind me of summer through the whole school year. Which is too long actually.
So these are the things I keep in my backpack. What are your school bag essentials?
I hope you enjoy reading blog from another teenager!
