Post #10--Back to School Must Haves?--Tsuki Bear

I only put the question mark because its different for everyone.

Anyways, we all know what's happening in three weeks. School is starting again. Yipee. I love my enthusiasm. Anyways! If you aren't sure how to start the school year off as a fun year (well, I know it'll get boring after a while, but it can be fun at first right?) here are some suggestions.


  • New clothes! What's a better way to start off a school year then to have a new wardrobe you can pick from? If you girls (and guys) are anything like me, your wardrobe gets boring after you've had it for over a year (actually, my current one is older then a year old...All of my new clothes from last year shrunk). So if you have the money and the time, go out and get some new jeans, shirts, skirts, etc. Even if you don't have much money, getting a few new items to wear is still fun.
  • A new back pack. Back packs are the number one most used item (besides pencils and paper) used by students. After a while, these life saving items get worn out, torn, ripped, etc. So if your bag looks worse for wear, go get a new one before it splits out in the middle of the hallway on your way to class.
  • A (new) binder with folders of your choice. Binders with folders are great ways to keep your homework in one place. If you're like me, you tend to lose stuff if you don't put it somewhere you know you can find it again. Make your school year easier (and less of a stress problem) by having a way to organize your homework so you can actually find it. On the plus side, your homework stays neat and doesn't get wrinkled and bent up from not being in a protective sleeve. There are school sales going on now, so these should be pretty inexpensive right now.
  • Paper and Pencils/Pens. Go and get some fun writing materials! Who wants to use those boring yellow pencils? Okay, maybe I do, mostly because they're ugly and I have no problem sharpening them. Also, go get some notebooks. They don't have to be totally awesome like your pencils or pens, but make sure you have some to last you a few months. The stores are having major back to school sales now, so you should be able to get a ton for like ten cents each.
  • FOR GIRLS: Hair stuff. Now would probably be a good time to get new ponytail holders, scrunchies, headbands, etc. You don't even have to buy them, you can make your own head bands with a pair of old panty hose and a plastic flower.
  • Reading books. Go to the book store (or library) and pick out a few reading books that look interesting to you. You will most likely need these books for English reading time, or book reports so read up! Plus, its something good to do if you get bored in class.
  • New music. If you have an Ipod, or an MP3 Player or some sort of music device, get new music! There are a few classes that will probably let you use these items when you're not supposed to be learning. So get on Itunes and download that song you've been wanting to get forever.
So I hope these things help you know some things you could be looking for for back to school. You don't have to take my advice if you don't want to.

On the other hand, I would suggest at least getting a binder/folders, pencils/pens, notebooks and a back pack.
