I am officially starting a new school! I am so excited, I have been going to a community college since fall 2014. This year I am transferring to Converse College and finally one step closer to becoming a teacher!
With a new school year and a new school, I have added a few new items to my school essentials. To start off, a new backpack was first on my list this year. I have had one North Face backpack since my senior year of high school and I honestly would still carry it. The quality is amazing and it has held up great! I just love new things and getting a new backpack was needed with starting fresh! The one below is the one I picked for this year. Trust me it will last me till I graduate!
Each year it is a necessity to get a new agenda, Lilly Pulitzer is always my first place to grab one. There are so many different brands to choose from and it usually comes down to what print or pattern I like. Next year, I really want to try a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley. I love seeing her instaposts about her agendas and they seem amazing! Also perfect for a busy college student that works multiple jobs!
Notebooks are always a must have, for writing notes for class or just a place to write random notes. I am obsessed with notebooks, the more the better. I have so many different sizes and colors, I could have plenty of notebooks to last me a very long time! Do I continue to buy more, YES! I am in love with the holographic kind I have been seeing everywhere; I even bought a colorful notepad that has holographic unicorns on it, who doesn’t want that! To go with your notebooks and agenda, you need paperclips, sticky notes, pencils, erasers, all that good stuff. You can get it all in this adorable Kate Spade set that comes in a little box to store it all as well!
When it comes down to yourself, you need a reminder that you need to take time for yourself. Grace not Perfection is a new obsession of mine lately. Side note: I hate reading. When I find a book I like, it’s a good one. I can’t tell you how the whole book is so far because I am still in the process of reading it. Also a side note: I am a slow reader. For what I have read, I can say that at some point every young adult women need to read this book. Has so many different approaches, especially for a future self. And every once in a while you need to find a good book to read aside from school books.
Grace, Not Perfection
