Back to School Backpacks


As college students, especially for those that commute, we are all well to acquainted with the feeling above. Looking for some pencil/pen/notebook/lip gloss/note cards that may or may not be there and only crossing our fingers that after 10 minutes of digging in the labrynth of our multiple bags (guilty) we will find whatever fuckery we were looking for. Whats worse is when it's not there and you spend another 10 minutes looking over again, swearing to yourself you put it in there until it dawns on you that you didn't.......

That's why this week is dedicated to back to school themed posts. It is of dire importance that we get our shiznitz together this year, it may be our last, and for today that means getting your school bag situations organized and stylized. 


Luckily for men this situation is easier than us ladies. A good graphic print or even a basic black color will do the job. For some reason it seems that guys backpacks are always empty, looking light as a feather and still in brand new condition. I have a theory that they just carry them around to seem smart so they can pick up girls, or act like wanna-be skateboarders, or both..........



Now for us ladies back pack pickings are much more conceptualized. We must think about what we wear, how our backpack will coincide with our diverse wardrobe choices, how much can we actually fit in the bag and how big do we want the bag to be? Do we want a military WWII knap sack situation, ready to carry laptops, biology index's, notebooks, possibly food, and random shennanigans? Do we want something more petite, cute and like a 90's back pack-purse reminiscence? Not really plausible when having to carry around 10-15 lbs worth of school work but a great day bag none the less. Or do we want something more cultural, showing off how well educated we are at our higher-education institution and that we have patterned personalities that are not limited to our shirts and shorts.


Finally we come to the last question of our backpack journey, what about lunch? Is it still appropriate in our 20's to be bringing lunch box's to college? When your on a college budget, hell yes. This girl did so with a matching Sponge Bob smile after leaving a long study session at the library, and as long as you have confidence you can pull anything off in my opinion.
