It must be said, I haven’t owned a backpack since my last day of school over 12 years ago. In the years since I’ve probably had Occassion to use every other type of bag known to man, but never a backpack.
I’ve noticed that fashion-wise, they’re making a bit of a comeback, and although I don’t rejoice in the memory of lugging my school books all over the countryside, there’s definitely a certain cool kid vibe given off by draping a strap over one shoulder (probably putting your back out in the process) and holding onto it one-handed.
This summer, I’ve had this notion that perhaps I’d be better off if I dressed for comfort rather than fashion- revolutionary right? This has involved lots of cut-off denim shorts and sneakers, and now with the addition of my backpack, I feel like I’m getting packed off to school all over again.
