Everyone always talks about how much they loveeeee back to school season.
I mean the new pens and pencils are great, don’t get me wrong, but the smell of fresh ink does not make up for the smell of sweet freedom that is stripped away when school is back in session.
The excitement of those new notebooks only lasts so long, and I can promise you when I’m using that notebook to take endless pages of lecture notes, that fresh, untouched, lined paper is suddenly a little less exciting.
For me, back to school season always meant the return of stress. School = homework and homework = quizzes and quizzes = tests and tests = stress. Summer has always been the one time where I don’t have to worry about grades and professors. I typically spend my summers working on things I love and projects I’m passionate about. The school year always becomes so busy and I’m typically forced to set aside those projects until the next summer to make way for not so exciting papers and power points.
While back to school is not exactly my favorite season in the world, I do love any excuse to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe and justify that it’s absolutely necessary for this upcoming school year. All these things I currently have my eye on and am seriously debating purchasing one or two before I jet off to Italy.
What do you think the best purchase would be? I'm really loving that sweater...
