Perhaps working from home has given me far too much time to think, but I’ve decided to use some of my free evening time to go back to university (again)! I graduated with my BA in History way back in 2012, and have taken some odd classes just for funsies over the years. This time around, I’m taking a course in Cross Cultural Awareness, Working with Challenging Behaviours, and GASP MATH!
I think this COVID time is one of those times where you have to reevaluate what makes you the most happy in life. While I like my job a lot, 10-12 hour days sitting at a desk is far from what I thought I’d be doing. Depending on how things go, I might go back for more classes in the fall and see where it takes me!
Either way, it was fun buying cute notebooks and pens, and less so for the piles of homework, but what can you do! Learning anything just because is a blast.
I’ve been stuck inside the house and have no plans on leaving, but I’ve enjoyed packing myself a cute school bag for moving my stuff all the way across the room to study!
This has always been one of my favourite things to learn about people… What’s in your bag used to be a huge feature on personal webpages back in the 90s/early 2000s, and probably what got me fully obsessed with the internet in the first place. I just think it’s really an interesting personal look at what people behind the screen are really like!
I really looove novelty handbags (especially delicious looking ones)! I have so many, even though I tend to stick with the exact same one for months at a time. They’re fun for coordinating outfits and scream FUN!
But right now, this is the bag that I’m using for work:
It’s not quite as fun on the outside (but it is VERY pink as strangers tell me all the time!). At least the insides are full of excitement:
Hello Kitty wallet and phone case (who else?!)
My little donut pouch holds bobby pins and other doo-dads
Lipchap, lipchap, and an extra lipchap! I’m addicted
Hair bows, clips, and hair ties
My work ID and sparkly pink lanyard (yes, I’m the buildings pink girl)
Candy, candy, candy. These are some yummy Japanese sweets I got from my absolute favourite shop.
The bottom of the bag (fortunately I didn’t dump it out!) is a ton of loose change, more bobby pins, hair ties, and who else knows what!
