What's in Katherine's bag?

When we were first told that we had to make a what’s in my bag blog post I was worried mine would be boring because the only thing I ever even really carry anymore is my iPad air. I usually don’t carry all of this stuff at one time or some of the stuff will be in the pockets of my hoodie or coat. In my bag I have the following item:

  • 1 hot pink beanie
  • 1 pair of winter gloves
  • 2 pairs of headphones
  • 2 pens
  • 1 mechanical pencil
  • 1 sushi pen from Japan
  • 1 book given to me by my roommate
  • 1 lanyard with 2 keys – one for my dorm room and other for mailbox
  • 1 yellow lighter
  • 1 epipen
  • 1 crystal
  • 2 EOS chapsticks – 1 mint and 1 berry flavored
  • 1 chocolate flavored Chapstick tube
  • 1 mini tub of Vaseline
  • 1 lip gloss
  • 1 evil eye beaded bracelet
  • 1 pack of orbit mint gum
  • 1 Calvin Klein wristlet which holds my ID card, debit card, gift cards, $
  • 1 round hairbrush
  • 1 iPhone 4s charger
  • 1 iPad air

Things that could be replaced by the iPad:

  1. Pens
  2. my book if it was available online or as a PDF

What I can’t live without:

  1. I literally cannot live without my epipen
  2. Headphones – I’m always listening to music on my way to class or while on a bus
  3. iPhone 4s charger – I’ve had the same cell phone for years and the battery doesn’t last very long so I am constantly charging my phone in class or in the hallways
  4. Chapstick – I’m obsessed with EOS chapsticks because they’re such a cute shape and taste amazing

Most surprising thing I carry:

  1.  A crystal I bought when I was on vacation in Florida. It’s purple and has really cool lines on it. I’m not even sure what kind of crystal it is or what it’s supposed to do but it’s pretty and I feel like it helps me.
  2. I feel like carrying 4 different types of chapsticks is very unnecessary and surprising to most people.
