I’m a backpack girl now. I use both my laptop and ipad for uni. Sometimes I’ll bring the laptop and sometimes I’ll bring the ipad (never both!). As much as I love handbags (yes, it’s a weakness - right after shoes), they just don’t carry a lot of stuff well. Aside from the electronics, I also need to be pen & paper, lunch, stethoscope, random things I may need while at uni, and a drink bottle.
As much as I look like a dork, at least my arms aren’t falling off from carrying the weight. I also have a really good backpack with very comfortable straps. It’s not the most fashionable backpack, but it’s much better for my shoulders and back than some other ones people have.
On weekends however, my handbag selection is very satisfying. It’s just unfortunate that I need to switch between handbags on weekends to backpack during the week.
