I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do not need an excuse when it comes to buying stationery. I have countless pretty notebooks that are lying blank because I can't decide what is worthy of their pages, but I can never resist picking up just one more...
With that in mind, a new term is a pretty good excuse to indulge my stationery addiction and treat myself to a few new bits of kit, which I've already made a start on by placing a little Typo order earlier this week! There's something about having new notebooks and pens that make me feel super organised, and I like that. Even if it's not really true!
Since buying myself a new laptop back at the start of the month I've been on the hunt for the perfect bag to carry it about for college without killing my back. My old laptop (may it rest in peace) was a pretty bulky machine, which was a bit of a nightmare to carry around with me. My new laptop is considerably lighter, as that was one of the main features I was looking for, but I still find myself leaning towards backpacks in order to save my shoulders a bit of stress.
Starting college feels like a bit of a fresh start for me, I'm leaving behind the negative impact university had on me and starting anew, on a new course with new people in a city that I love so dearly. My classes start "for real" a week on Monday so I have a bit of time to get myself set up properly before I get thrown in at the deep end, but I'm feeling pretty excited about it all right now.
