I love looking on YouTube and seeing what students keep in their bag on a daily basis so, since I have this little blog, I decided to share with all of you what I keep in my backpack for when I have class. This year I have class Monday, Tuesday, and Thursdays.
I bought this adorable black backpack from ASOS a few months ago for my birthday and it is perfect. I’ve been looking for a backpack like this for a while now, managing to snap this one up for only £20! If you like the look of it, you can get it here!
The backpack itself comes with a fairly big front pocket which I use to carry things I need to grab quickly, saving me time rummaging through the large pocket. This includes my keys, a little mirror, some snacks (I’m loving the Whitworth shots), gum, tissues, Carmex, and whatever lipstick I’m wearing that day.
For the main pocket, I like to keep the things I need but don’t necessarily need to grab ASAP. This includes my iPad which I sometimes use to take notes if I don’t have my Mac with me, my pencil case (comment below for a what’s in my pencil case), my diary, my purse, and a pad of paper. I don’t usually write my notes in class, I only use paper for when I’m at home so I can take my time with them, but sometimes I’m in a writing mood. My fellow students can agree that it’s pretty tough trying to write as your lecturer is talking. I also bring a bottle of water as I like to stay hydrated during the day and an umbrella, as the weather in the UK is unpredictable.
Along with my backpack, I bring my laptop in its case. If I have a busy day, I’ll bring my laptop charger so I can charge it during breaks but, if I only have class for a couple hours, I leave it at home. I also bring an iPhone lead so I can charge my phone.
