stylenomad 's Thoughts:

My high school years were spent in Canada where the bag you carried informed the other kids what kind of crowd you belonged to:

-The safe choice for all-time coolness was the Jansport with its sleek canvas design and singular pouch in a myriad of colors.
-If you were a girly girl, you’d snub the backpack altogether and opt for a large cotton tote preferably from Club Monaco. For bathroom trips she carried a teensy weensy Guess or Coach purse to keep all her valuables in.
-Now if you were super nerd you’d think “health first! I must save my back from the millions of textbooks I must lug!” and opt for a rolly suitcase style backpack or ones with a million compartments which end up being more of an annoyance than help.

Guess which group I fell in?
The latter.

Not because I wanted to. I wanted to be Cute girl with Puma sneakers and that cotton tote. However I have a mother who’d say to me “Messenger bags are bad for posture!!! You’ll be crooked for the rest of your life!” thus when it came to back to school shopping for a new backpack I always ended up with the techy looking ones with gel cushions in the straps and many pockets covered in mesh and padding. So I’d try the second technique to making a nerdy backpack look cool by wearing it slung on one shoulder. Rebellious no? But my mom would always catch me and make me wear it on both shoulders.
Not cool.
