I always love to know what people have in their bags, so today I’m sharing what’s in mine. I hope to soon do one about what I bring to sailing as well, but today I’m sticking to my school backpack and my tennis bag. Both of these are bags I use very often, but what’s in them doesn’t change nearly as much. Without further ado, here’s what I bring to both school and tennis.
Clockwise from top left
Pencil pouch// This is super random, but when I go to math club or have a mathletes competition, I always need pencils, etc (there’s also supposed to be a calculator) and this bag is for those moments.
My phone// I have an iPhone 5 right now, and I prefer not to bring it places because it doesn’t have a case, but I usually end up bringing it everywhere.
Gum// I love a good minty gum or mints, and this always ends up with me at school. I normally have it walking to or from school, and it makes me seem like I brushed my teeth if I forgot (he he…) that morning. I also enjoy chewing gum, however I’m super conscious about the sound while I chew.
First aid kit// I made this with an old mint container. It has a few band-aids, a few cough drops, and neosporin. My friend needed a band-aid a while ago, and she asked me, saying that I “seem like the person who would have that.” I didn’t, but I carry a first aid kit so that now I do!
Chapstick// Another friend and I both share a love for chapstick. I have it all the time, and it’s so satisfying to just put it on! (I mean the whole genre of lip balm, I just use the brand name chapstick.) My favorite is Blistex, the basic with 15 SPF and “complete moisture”.
Book// Not much to say about this, but I tend to have one every day at school. Right now I’m reading Helen Keller’s The Story of my Life.
IPad Bag and Binder// I have a school issued iPad and I carry it in the bag it was given to me in. My binder is a standard zipper binder, but it works well for me.
Lunchbox// I received this for my birthday, and it also has a monogram sticker that fell off. I need to glue it back on, I just haven’t got around to it. The lunchbox itself, though, is really great! I love the size, and the print is snazzy too. Best of all, it keeps the temperature of my food the same as how I put it into the lunchbox.
Clockwise from top right
Water Bottle// I always drink more water if I have a water bottle. I think holding it makes me think I should drink some water right now! And that’s exactly what I do. I like this one because it has a fun color, keeps the water cold, and doesn’t leak. That is so important to me in a water bottle, and I’m happy to say that this one doesn’t!
Sneakers// I generally hate sneakers, but these have been great. I hated the color at first, but eventually I came around. I love how they feel, and they fit really well. I also really love these.
Tennis Racket// I got a new racket for Christmas, and it’s so much better than my old one! It is the right size (finally) and I think I’m playing better now because of it! The racket itself is nothing special, but I think that having one that works is really important.
Skirt// This is my only tennis skirt, and I’m hoping the warm weather will come soon so I can wear it! I mostly play in leggings right now, but I’m looking forward to when I can wear this one every Friday.
Shirt// I wear any random tech shirt, but I really love the color on this one. It seems so light and calm, but also seems like a good workout color? (Maybe I’m just crazy…) I mentioned two other tops in yesterday’s post that I’m liking right now too.
What do you have in your bag? Is there anything you’d recommend I add to mine? Let me know in the comments below!
