So it’s the start of the week and something that really stresses us out all the time is what to wear and what to bring. It’s Monday and usually, you were up really late ’cause it still felt like the weekend and you slept late because you were cramming a paper or homework that you put off ’til yesterday. Anyway you wanna put it, at one point or another you have been stressed out because it was the start of the week and you weren’t prepared.
When it comes to what to bring (let’s tackle the easiest topic first) it’s best to always have the bag prepared. Chances are, you haven’t touched your (school) bag over the weekend and that binder peeking out from inside it contains everything you will ever need. I’ve learned that I need:
a binder to hold all of my stuff. Like all of my files for class, my class schedule, my course outline and flow chart. My binder right now is red and is a clear book. I find it easier to contain my things using this kind of binder holding my loose notes and pockets of clear book plastic to keep all per class things together.
a small makeup kit. This is something that has evolved from something bulky to something that is currently simple and contains everything that I feel necessary for touch ups! I’ll be making another post what I use most often for my everyday makeup things. Yay!
my iPod and phone This is something that I never leave home without! My brother goes ballistic whenever I leave my phone at home.
a small notebook for my notes like things that are necessary for my classes.
a small envelope for all my loose papers like index cards, yellow pad, and fillers (real notebooks are too fat and too bulky to carry around for just one term.
my pencil case contains every single writing material that I have ever needed!
my wallet has my money(duh!), emergency or otherwise, and some hair pins because if I kept that small plastic in my bag they’ll just be everywhere but I won’t be able to find them when I actually need them.
Now for the more “difficult” part, what to wear. My go to outfit is my black skirt, my flats and a top that depends on my mood.
My go to outfit:
Classic black skirt something that I am just happy to put on
Flats with a really big campus there’s a lot of working to be done.
Tops an array of tops that I choose from are graphic t-shirts, plaid polos, plain t-shirts
So here are some things that can get those manic Mondays down and calm…
