Whats in My Bag - Back To School Edition!

I will be officially starting my 4th and final year at the University of Calgary and i have to admit, i am a bit excited! These past few years flew by so fast, and i cant believe i`m finally on my last year.. Im excited to be done, but at the same time, im scared to have to face the fact that im growing up and done school forever... anyone else in this stage?

Anyways, since im packing up stuff for school, i thought i might share with you what i normally bring to school. So here is a "whats in my bag" but a school edition :)

first off, here is my school bag. i purchased this recently from forever 21 because since i only have 6 courses left (3 courses a sem) i wont have to haul around too many books. This bag is sturdy but cute :)

i loveee the braided handles! theres also a few pockets in the front and back which have super cute dangles on them as well :)

of course, theres the usual inside pockets, one in the back and two in the front

and now for the inside!

firstly, i love using notebooks.. i much rather study from my handwritten notes rather than typed up notes because all that staring into the cpu screen hurts my eyes. i also keep fun duotangs so that i can keep all those handouts organized!

this here is a folder organizer/clipboard like thing... haha it used to hold a pad of lined paper inside, but i think i mightve used it up hence my ghetto paper clips holding lined paper :p Im debating if i should use this or switch to a binder.. it really depends on the lectures so i guess i'll find out soon!

depending on the lectures again, i may need to bring a laptop. For the past year, i've been using a tiny netbook :) i love this thing! i used to have a chunky laptop and although it was great and had tons of functions, all i really needed was something with microsoft word or powerpoint so that i could type up notes etc. This one was perfect since its very compact and light :)

Of course, we all need pencils, pens and highlighters! I loveeeeee stationary stuff so of course, my pencil case is jammed pack with all different types of stuff! I keep a variety of pencils, pens, highlighters and colored pens because i like to color code my notes so that they're all pretty when it comes time for studying. haha i also like to keep some post it tabs or paper clips in case i need to make note of something important. and the main thing in my pencil case.. is my usb stick :) this holds all my important files and documents that i need so i know i have everything i need when i need it!

since i dont like to carry around an extra purse when i go to school, i just throw my makeup bag and my wallet into my school bag so that i have my essentials in case something comes up!

ohh.. and i always like to keep a water bottle and some snacks on me. I get hungry often and snacks are perfect for either in between, or during lectures! I also recently picked up this super cute utensils set from bed, bath and beyond!

basically, it includes two "base" sticks... then a spoon, knife, fork and chopsticks. All you have to do is take the one you need and attach it onto the base sticks! I love this :) Because im a clean freak when it comes eating, i always need to have utensils!! So this is perfect for me :) pluss, it comes in pink and has a super cute but compact case! yay!

okayy.. so thats whats in my bag! items missing from above include my iphone, headphones etc etc.. but i didnt photograph those cause im sure you know what they look like! So anyone else starting school tmr? Excited or nervous? I think i've gotten past the "first-year-nervousness" and kinda dread the intense workload we'll be getting shortly.... :( oh well, hope you all have a great first day back! :D

whats in your bag? any essentials? share your tips!

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
