I got this backpack from Target, and it is apart of the Trans by Jansport collection. When you're in middle school, it's time to ditch the Disney bookbags and go to Jansport/Trans/anything without Disney characters on them. I got a new one this year, and they last a really long time and they're super duper durable. Click here to find out more. And I know the picture looks really weird on the Target website, but trust me, it isn't that weird in person.
Apparently, I needed lots of notebooks this year for each and everyone of my classes for me to break my back with. We needed two 3 Section/Subject Wide Ruled notebooks, one 2 Section/Subject Wide Ruled notebook, and one 1 Section/Subject Wide Ruled notebook. Wooh! I got the in different colors to make it more easier for me to remember which notebook was for this subject, etc. Make sure you label your name, homebase, etc. on the notebook, incase you "misplace" them or get way too frustrated and throw them out your window.
As like the notebooks, I tried to pick out colors that would go with the notebook's color itself. How OCD am I? These are two pocket folder, and what I plan on doing is making one side for homework and the other side for study/notes that I need for upcoming tests, and instead of bringing all the folders home, I can look at each one and see what I need to bring home to do homework or study with. And I also recommend labeling these again, since probably everyone else in your school will have the same folders.
*these are not all the supplies I need. Of course, I have more, but I chose to show you some of the supplies.*
These supplies are really important when it is school time, because you don't want to be asking people for pencils or a sharpener during a test or an important day, do you? Make sure you have some in your pencil case, and don't put all of them in at once, since they could become easily lost or something like that. Above are my favorite pens and pencils that I use in school.
The fun stuff!
When I talk about the fun stuff, I mean the stuff that isn't needed in school, but it's optional. Except for the lanyard, which I need. :P
In my school, this is needed for your ID, so you don't loose it and you have it with you at all times. Get something you like on it, like cheerleading, smileys, or just a funky design! They sell really nice ones at Five Below, and Hallmark (if you're into Vera Bradley).
A book and some note papers/Post-Its
I'm always carrying around a book, incase I finish early and I need something to occupy the time or if I just need something to read while waiting for something/someone. It is also good to carry around note papers, or Post-Its, because sometimes you may need to jot something down real quick and they always come in handy.
