Hey everyone! Spring semester is officially in full swing and I couldn’t be more excited! As fun as it was to be studying abroad, I’m glad to be back in New York and in a consistent routine. With the new semester comes a new school bag full of stuff, and I’m going to show you what that is today!
As you know, I’m super into organization and planning just to make life easier for me, so a lot of the stuff in my bag has to do with that!
For my school bag, I use the Lo & Sons O.G. bag. I’ve had it for about 6 months now; I bought it for traveling while I was abroad, and I’m now using it as my school bag. It has a ton of space for everything you need: A laptop, extra pair of shoes, and tons of pockets and zippered pouches! It’s perfect to carry everything around during the school day!
This one’s pretty obvious, but I always carry my school supplies which are basically notebooks, pens, pencils, and a calculator. My schedule is pretty stacked this semester: I have 5 classes Mondays and Thursdays, and one night class Wednesday. Since basically all my classes are on the same day, I carry a 5-subject notebook instead of five 1-subject notebooks.
I can’t go anywhere without my planner, so you can bet it’s in my school bag! I use the Day Designer planner that I absolutely LOVE! You can read a detailed review of it here. I also keep a pack of cute planner stickers with me to draw attention to important dates!
My lips are dry pretty much year round, but especially so in the winter. I like to keep some type of lip balm or chapstick on me because I need to apply it constantly in the winter! I’m a fan of these ones!
I have a 10-15 minute walk to class from my townhouse, so gloves are a necessity. I can’t survive without texting gloves and they keep my hands super warm on my walk to class!
I use my laptop in some classes and usually in between classes if I have some time to spare. I always keep it on me with my charger so I never run into a situation where it dies and I need to use it.
Like I said earlier, my classes this semester are back to back all day on Mondays and Thursdays, so I don’t always have much time to eat a full meal. I always carry a small snack on me to eat between classes if I need it, usually a granola bar.
I carry my wallet just for good measure. I don’t usually use it for anything except to carry my student ID.
I always have Advil on me in the case of a headache or something. Usually, if I stare at screens too long I get killer headaches, so I keep Advil in case this happens!
I don’t usually listen to music when I’m walking to class, but if it’s extremely cold I will because it keeps my mind off of how frozen I am. I’ll also use my headphones if I’m on my laptop between classes.
