Hey, dolls! Lately, I've been so busy with homework and college stuff, that this stuff has been getting to me. I'm been so tired and even my school bag has been wearing me down. It's so heavy with school stuff, college stuff and personal items. So I decided to let you guys in on what's on my bag, well the most important things. To make sure your bag is not making your shoulders hurt, you just have to make sure you only bring along the important items. Yes, every situation has its own bag with specific items. But, these are items that you may need in any situation:
This may be surprising, but you should always carry some type of notebook or even a notepad. There are always situations where you may need to write something down. For example, what if you meet someone who could be your key for an opportunity of a lifetime and they want your number, but they don't have a phone on them. You'll need a book and a pen to give it to them or you'll just miss that opportunity. Maybe, that wasn't a great example, but leave home without a book one day and you'll see what I mean.
I always carry an umbrella and scarf with me especially when the seasons transition. New York's weather is always up and down and you never know what to expect. This morning it was very chilly and I had fall jacket on, after I left school, I had to take it off and wear my cardigan because it was hot. Carry an umbrella for an unexpected rainfall and chilly change in weather. A scarf can even be helpful for those days when you accidently spill ketchup on your shirt and you want to cover it up.
Lotion and chap-stick is especially good for the winter when you skin gets dry. Get good smelling lotion for the days that you feel like you smell funky and you need to cover it up.
Your wallet is one of the most important things, you need in your bag. Keep extra money in there for emergencies, metro cards, IDs, and other small things that you don't want to lose. Don't forget your keys unless you enjoy being locked out of your house and wait for someone to open the door for you.
Lately, I've had an obsession with Doublemint gum for some reason. But, other than the reason to satisfy my obsession, gum is good for the days that you add garlic to your pizza and your breathe smells. Or you can buy the gum that cleans and protects your teeth.
