What’s In My Bag That I Hope You Don’t Need to See

Welcome to the second blogpost of 2018. You might be wondering why I could be able to write two blogposts in the same weekend whilst you know that I had been gone for almost two months before. Yes, I am currently having a semester break and I am so happy that I can hibernate a little longer!

This time I am going to show you the things I always bring in my daily backpack to go for uni. Moreover I would like to show you the important things you should have there based on my personal experience. But there is one little thing that I hope you don’t need to see.

I prefer to wear backpack because I can bring many things that I want without worrying the amount of things that I need. I would love to show you my very first colorful backpack from JanSport, Pink Digibreak! If you love JanSport bags, click here and get the special offer for all items! Only through that link😱

This backpack is designed for digital stuff where in the compartment part, you can find an internal laptop sleeve which I believe this is every uni students need.

And not only that, the compartment part also has a quite large size thus you can have any other things you need to put in.

And here are my stuffs in the compartment part. These things are very crucial for me to run my days in uni. I often bring my 13″ laptop because I can always work anytime and anywhere I want; a novel or any other books that I can read to distract myself from boredom and reality; a snack like Pocky because I am always hungry; one notebook because I am actually still a traditional student where I still need paper and pen to write things down at class; and last but not least, my tumbler because Starbucks is nearby the campus. Haha!

Now you must be wondering what part is this. Well to be honest I don’t know. Haha! But what I know, it can be useful for a quick pocket where I am in a rush to put things without worrying about the zipper.

And this is the most special one I suppose. The inside of this pocket is very fluffy and I sometimes like to put my hands in there when I feel cold. But this one is actually designed for gadgets like tablets or iPad, phones, or any other digital things thus that’s why the name of this bag is Digibreak.

Well I am just a girl and please excuse my behavior of always bringing make up anywhere. This part is actually designed for any stuff as long as they can fit in.

I usually bring my compact powder, blush on, lip matte, and a small perfume because I am really aware of my appearance and how I smell. When I forget to bring these stuffs, I feel like I am insecure. Haha!

Soo that’s all I got in my bag for daily basis that I hope you don’t need to see but completely need to know. And as you have read about my stuffs, one thing that is really important above all is a notebook and a pen precisely. Why do I think that way?

From a psychological book I once read, it says that our memory stays longer if we write things down in papers rather than typing on the phone. Call me an old fashioned, I still write journal and tell how my day is to it. I do that to rewind a day I pass thus I can always remember every single thing that people do and say. And one legit advice for you is, bring notebook and don’t sleep at class!

I know it takes a bunch of intention to start writing at class but just try to write anything that you hear, from that moment, you are making progress. That’s all I got today for this weekend’s blogpost, I hope this article can profoundly inspire your uni life into something positive. One thing that I can learn is, wear backpack for school, not a sling bag. Have a great weekend!

After Class With Fellas

Been living in a new circumstance for almost a month is totally exciting. Meeting new people, learning about new things, trying to adapt with new zone and any other stuff I’ve never done before. A few days ago, my friends and I were going live on periscope after class. The schedule was quite tiring but we had so much fun.

We walked around campus, took some pictures, acted like idiots because we only live once. And this is how I look like for college outfit,

Jeans, sneakers, backpack, tank top that could cover up my butt and outerwear are totally my thing. I like wearing backpack because I could take everything I need efficiently without thinking it will wreck my bag up.

Jeans that I wore by Stradivarius, black and white tank top by et cetera, blazer by Fuelworx and sneakers by converse.

Well, I’m probably the casual one and there’s my friend who tend to look more feminine. Her name is Dian.

I didn’t ask where she bought the outfits she was wearing but as you can see above, actually you could rock red jeans with any tops. I usually wear blue jeans and never tried to wear another color except white and crème. Her black and white stripe bag is my favorite one. Dian, may I have your bag?

Last but not least, I have one more friend I wanted to feature on this Weekly OOTD post. His name is Jaka. He’s like the most narcissistic person I’ve ever known because wherever he is, “lemme take a selfie”.

I neither asked what outfits he was wearing, so, pardon me, my beautiful readers. Mostly, guys like casual outfits. I often find Jaka matches his t-shirt with sweater and never forgets his Levi’s backpack. And you could also wear something bright that could catch someone’s glance like Jaka’s orange sneakers.

I’m very pleased to meet my new friends. So, don’t be afraid to meet new people. I was afraid and shy to say ‘hi’ to new people as well, moreover the people I’ve never talked to before. Then I realized saying ‘hi’ is not that hard, though Taylor Swift says “I don’t want to say hi because there’ll be another goodbye”, try to say ‘hi’ and be nice to anyone, because you’ll never know, one simple word could align you to something that could change your life forever.

Sophisticated Tips For College Freshmen Should Know

Life on campus offers a lot of temptation for the unwary students. And you absolutely have necessities that take up a large portion of your college fund, such as lifestyle and clothing, furniture to decor your own dorm, class/lab fees, food and entertainment. Moreover, you have things to prepare before you start your freshman year.

Fortuitously, I’ll start college in a few weeks from now. I’ve just made a list to prepare for my freshman year, so I wanted to share it with you guys. Let’s get started!

Setting Up Your Laptop

Laptop is now anyone’s necessity nowadays. It’s used to save our files and stuff. Yeah, it’s very useful but have you ever thought about the worse? What if your laptop has a meltdown and your phone goes for a swim? You may think it’s too far to think so but we have to anticipate. I decided to install OneDrive and DropBox. I use online storage to save my files because I still can get my files anywhere and anytime I want even though the device isn’t mine. You also could use a hard disk or another external storage but I think using online storage is the most efficient way to save my college fund.

Weekly Food Budget

Make a weekly food budget and stick to it or you can cook to save more money, cut out any unnecessary restaurant spending, eating out can jeopardize your college fund for Neptune’s sake. And for drinks, instead of drinking coffee, smoothies and stuff, mineral water is healthier anyway 🙂

Use e-Book/PDF

The price of textbooks could be outrageous and you don’t use them for a lifetime anyway, just because your professor asks you to get it, doesn’t mean you have to get the original one. You can :
– Go to your college library
– Buy a second-hand book which is cheaper
– Google the books you need and download the PDF/e-Book
– Or maybe you could rent it to bookrenter.com

Pursue Scholarships

Thankfully, I got a scholarship in a college I’ll be going to and seriously, scholarship and grants can help you reduce your college cost. If your performance in college gets better than ever, you could get a full scholarship in time. Just keep the good work!

Be Active in Professional Organizations/Clubs

Because joining and being active in a club could align you to your career path. Just be active, be productive and you’ll see!

Decide What You Want To Be After College

tumblr_mmx6znA6RE1rdh9g0o2_r3_400_zps701d00f4

Go to career center in your college and ask them how to pursue your dream like where you want to work at, what position you want to be and how much salary you’ll get in the company you want to go to for certain positions, etc because the earlier, the better.

Be Confident

tumblr_lsm2f1Lhj51qa2gl7o1_500 You’re now an adult, get out of your comfort zone and try new things.

I hope those tips will help you to survive your freshman year! I’m excited and nervous at the same time but the more I think, being a freshman isn’t that bad, it’s a challenge that we need to face to take our feet out of its comfort zone and feel the new things, because that’s where the real life is. Good luck with everything! 🙂
