My Back to School Essentials

Hi guys! Welcome back to Liee’s Corner! I hope you all had a lovely week. Since it’s already nearly the end of August (wait, what?!) I thought I would write a post about my back to school essentials. Let’s get right into it!

My first essential is a good agenda. I like to get a nice agenda at the beginning of the school year. I stay organized by writing down all my work shifts, my homework, my exams, etc. I usually prefer one that is separated weekly, where I have enough space to write down multiple things every day. The one I bought this year was from Indigo and it is separated weekly, but also has a monthly views of August 2017 until December 2018 at the beginning. I thought it was a nice touch as monthly layouts are practical to write down birthdays and/or to have a good idea of what lies ahead.

I also do quite like to get some nice colorful pens to write in my agenda. I like to separate my different tasks with different colors. Alongside with the pens, I also like to get colorful post its to be even more organized. I usually use them in my notebooks or textbooks rather than my agenda though. They are practical for studying.

The last thing I get to help with organization is get a file holder (is that how you call it?!) It is basically a folder that is separated into different sections. I like to have one because I can carry loose paper in it and also, instead of bringing home my whole binder, I can just bring the parts I need. It makes my bag less heavy! Since it has different compartments, I can separate my homework depending on which class it is for.

The next thing on my list, of course, are notebooks. Now, I know some people like to take notes on their laptops or tablets, but when it comes to school, I’m much more of a pen and paper kind of girl! I prefer reading my notes on paper when I study, and also, my computer is quite bulky and the battery isn’t the best, so I find it simpler to just bring a few notebooks.

Another thing I like to bring to school is a little pouch filled with different bits and bobs. I usually keep hair ties and bobby pins in it, just in case mine break or I lose them during the day. I also bring product to clean my glasses (because nothing is more distracting that a massive spot on your lens when you are trying to concentrate on reading or something), lip balm and hand cream, I mostly use those during winter time. Finally, I keep my pads and tampons in there, some deodorant (that is very useful after gym class!) and some loose change just in case I forget my lunch, or anything really, and need money to get something.

The two last things on my list are a pair of headphones and a travel mug for my tea! I really enjoy listening to music on my way to school. I do have quite the ride, so it makes it more enjoyable. I also like to listen to music when I study at school, it cancels out a little of the noise and it also helps me concentrate. I usually put piano or stuff like that, because when I listen to actual songs with words, it has the opposite effect and I just start singing in my head haha. As for the travel mug, I enjoy having some warm tea, usually from David’s Tea, in the mornings, especially when I start at 8. Even in September, it can get quite chilly in the mornings (I leave at 6:45 AM when I start at 8) so it’s nice to have a warm drink with me.

Here you go, those are my back to school essentials!
