What’s In My Uni Bag?
Today was meant to be my first day back at uni but I’ve been throwing up all morning so I can’t even go in! But nevertheless, I’m getting all my to-do list for the house done today. First up was to write this post! Despite not being there, I packed my bag last night with all of my essentials in it:
This is my bag that I take most of the time. I bought it from Forever 21 a while ago and I loved it because of the zips on the side of it. It’s not going to last much longer but it’s great for days when I don’t need to take loads of stuff, like my laptop! On the days when I need my laptop, I take a rucksack!
Next up are the actual stationary I use for my lectures. I colour co-ordinate my modules so I don’t get confused. This semester, International Marketing is blue and Strategic Marketing and Planning is pink. Inside each of these I put the exercise book in the corresponding colour to take notes in, the lecture slides and any additional printouts needed. I also have a lever arch folder for each module at home which I put all my notes into after the lecture.
I also take a pencil case with a variety of colours for notes/diagrams and a highlighter in the same colour as my folders to highlight important words/phrases during the lecture.
I always have my purse with me at all times at uni (not that there’s any money in it!); it contains all my usual discount cards and bank card as well as my NUS card and Hull Uni ID card. I do try and have some spare change on me so I can treat myself to a cheeky hot chocolate when I want to!
I also carry a make-up bag with me but don’t actually carry make-up in it!
These are my essential items for on-the-go:
- Small perfume sample
- Anti-bacterial handwash
