I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.

Back to school time has always been bittersweet. On the one hand, I got tons of new clothes and school supplies. But on the other I had to go back to spending 7 hours a day in school and not watching the Price is Right with my younger sister. As a college student, going back to school has charms of its own. I have a schedule I make myself to fit around my life. I still get all of the clothes and supplies, but books cost an absolutely insane amount.
More time spent on campus means having the essentials to make it through the day. These are the things I always have on hand with me to combat boredom, eat, or could possibly need throughout the day. Obviously this is in addition to my laptop, notebooks, and school supplies. In my emergency pouch I keep pain reliever, band aids, Aquaphor lip balm, oil absorbing sheets, and eye drops. Occasionally the contents will change but after lots of trial and error I’ve determined the necessities so to each their own. I keep a small notebook on hand for doodling or writing down ideas & lists.
