I would make a Youtube video but I’ll save you guys the 2005 video edits
but seriously guys I truly feel like I’m acting like a youtuber doing this but
in order to really help you guys out I decided to include a Supply Haul in my
back to school series. The reason behind this is because I could say this, this
and that but I would be hypocritical if I wasn’t actually using the supplies I
suggested in any of my past masterposts. I will include pictures of everything
I bought as well as a brief description of why I bought it and how I will use
it for the upcoming school year. Hopefully this will give you a better
understanding of my personal preferences for school and how it may help you
stay organized, and succeed.
I chose to go with
one of Jansport’s most popular backpack. It has one main pocket with sufficient
space as well as two front pockets and a laptop sleeve. I chose this backpack
because it’s simple and is a decent size for my first year of college.
I bought 5
notebooks for this first semester. Two of them are from Stellar and they are
simple, one subject, college ruled notebooks.
The third notebook
I chose is a grid notebook which I plan to use for my Intro to Statistics
course. I felt this was a better option rather than a lined notebook because it
will help me to keep my notes organized and easy to read. This notebook is also in the size 8.5x11 which was really hard to find for me. I don’t like the Mead Five Star grid notebooks and every other grid notebook was small so when I finally found this one I was extremely excited!
The last two
notebooks I bought were from Muji. These Notebooks are made of recycled
material so they’re an off white color. I plan on using this for my Spanish 202
class. These notebooks don’t have a spiral binding which, for some reason or
another, I actually prefer for my language courses.
I chose to buy 4
1" binders for this school year. There isn’t much to this except that I’m
going to use these as my main source of organization for each class which
includes: Spanish, Statistics, US History, and English
I plan to use these
to further organize my classes in my binders. I won’t use an entire pack for
one binder but just a few to divide up spaces for my homework, essays, class
work, and notes. (also of course I had to pick the cute ones)
I grabbed a single
folder along with everything else because, if you’ve read my BTS Series
masterposts, then you’ll know that I strongly recommend a folder that you use
for important papers or work that is given or needs to be turned in that same
day. I grabbed a plastic Five Star rather than an off brand paper folder
because I know I’ll be using this all year round for multiple purposes. I’ll
need to get maximum use out of this folder so the sturdier, the better.
· Erasers, Refills, White Out, and Adhesive Rollers
This is all pretty self-explanatory.
I just want to point out that I strongly recommend you buy white out because
you’ll definitely need it if you prefer writing notes with pen rather than
I bought 15 Zebra
Mildliners for this school year. Of course you don’t need this many highlighters, let alone such expensive
highlighters. Just make sure to include a good variety for yourself if you
heavily rely on highlighting your notes!
I bought 2 sets of
pens (highly unnecessary but I’m extra) for this year. The first being 12 Pilot
G2 pens in 0.7mm as well as 12 Muji pens in 0.5mm. If you don’t have access to
online shopping I would go ahead and buy Pilot G2 because those will more
likely be in stores rather than Muji pens (If you guys know of any American
store that sells Muji prducts LET ME KNOW). But if you’re thinking of buying
yourself some Muji pens, I highly recommend them! I also bought a white Gelly Roll pen which I plan to use for my bullet journal.
I bought three different
black pens (again, EXTRA) which includes the Staedtler Fineliners, Pilot G2 in
0.38mm and Uni-Ball Signos in 0.7mm. I plan on using the fineliners for my bujo
and the Pilot G2 for notetaking. The Uni-Ball Signos for whatever other reason
but most likely as back up.
For pencils so far
I’ve only bought 2 pencils from Muji which is, again, totally unnecessary. I do
plan on buying just some regular pencils from whatever store since I’m not
really picky on the actual barrel but rather the size of the lead. I bought
these Muji pencils for the heck of it (cuz it’s Muji ya know?) and liked how
they looked. Plus they were in 0.5mm lead which is my preference.
I bought my first
Bullet Journal after having tried it out with a different notebook over the
summer. I chose to buy the Leuchtturm 1917 dotted notebook since I’ve seen many
good reviews and whatnot. So far I really enjoy the quality of the paper and
everything the notebook has to offer.
Lol so this has
been a reoccurring theme in this masterpost but these are just a few extra supplies I bought that I know I’ll be using this school year. This includes Washi tape (for my bujo), Tombow dual
Brush pens (for my bujo) and a notepad for quick lists.
that’s everything that I’ve bought for this school year! There’s certain
things, such as my pencil case and loose leaf paper that I didn’t mention because I
didn’t buy new ones and they’re pretty self explanatory. If you want to see the
pencil case that I’ll be using for this school year you can check out my
“What’s in my pencil case” post. Apart from that, if you have any questions of where I bought any of these or whatever else, don’t be afraid to
comment, send me a message, or send an ask to my inbox! I'l be happy to answer
and send you guys links of where I bought everything.
This was a pretty long masterpost considering I included multiple pictures. This was a lot of effort (much more effort than I thought it would take) so I hope you guys enjoyed and can really understand what I’ve been talking about in my previous BTS masterposts!
Don’t forget to check out the rest of my Back to School Series HERE!
Some photos of last week’s Slytherin themed bullet journal spread ^^ ft. My new houseplant Timothy. Last week was Easter break and we didn’t have any homework apart from maths so I’ve been taking it easy.
hello everyone! i compiled a looong list of cute and aesthetic supplies to help you guys pick out things for your back to school shopping. most of this stuff is not neccisarry at all for having a studyblr, or a succesful school year, but is a lot of fun to have. this list is very long so feel free to do what im going to and pick out a few favorites!! at the end i will link the amazon wish list so you can see it all in one place.
the “amazon finds” are sectioned into the categories, “writing, highlighting, and coloring”, “supplies” which includes everything from notebooks to stickers and washi tape to pencil cases, “backpacks”. “lunch and snack supplies” and “daily carry” which has cute stuff to have at your desk, stuff to make your life easier and cute self care goods.
i have it enabled so that people may send me something from the list if they really want to, but my no means should you feel like you have too! make sure when you put something in your cart you are sending it to yourself and not me by accident!

listen, this is the only piece of good advice i am ever going to give to you:
if you’re a traditional artist, invest in a fucking white gel pen. gelly roll is a great brand. buy a pen. buy multiple pens. they will save your life. they will make your art look kickass. get your hands on some white gel pens
1) start with your lines! Remember to be fluid here, keep things organic and rounded. This will help when you start coloring!
2) Now when I color slime I choose to line in color as well as it helps create that “clear” or “jello-like” look later on.
3) I started by picking my color set! I find that having a five color set usually helps me create a smooth, goopy transition with my markers but that’s just me! Now I always start with my darkest color trying to make the centers. Ever have Gushers? Imagine you’re making that. And that’s where all your main bits are going to be. Whether they’re the biggest overlaps in body parts or where your slime’s innards are going to be.
4) Here’s where you start establishing shadows that aren’t primarily due to overlap or innards!
5) Start to round out your shadows and your centers from panel 3.
6) Continue to follow that liquid rounded feeling of your shading. Here is probably where you’ll start to reach the edges of your lines.
7) Finish with your colors and leave your established lighted areas pretty pale.
8) I feel like this could be entirely optional depending on taste but it looks really clean to me. So here I blend from darker colors to lighter colors using my colorless blender. Careful though, depending on how wet your piece is you could have some bleeding really take over your lines here.
9) Fill in any other spaces here! I.E.) clothes, facial details, markings, accessories, etc.
10) I use the Gelly Roll pens for all my high lighting but really a nice gel pen will get the job done. Again, product used is based on artist comfort in my opinion. I also usually clean up my lines in this stage as there was bleeding that occurred in the colorless blending stage!
I hope to do video tutorials in the future, but hopefully this helps out the way it needs to!
The colors I used were from the Prismacolor Premier set and were-
☆Sky Light Blue (I unfortunately could not find the number for this one)
☆PB-121 (my colorless blender)
☆ then black
My liners were from the 20 count Triplus Fineliner set (they’re pretty well priced at Michael’s and Target but at Michael’s you can usually use a 40% coupon on them!)
Then my highlight gel pen was the wonderful Gelly Roll pen! They’re pretty cheap and you can find them at most craft stores and online for about the same price across the board!

Finally done! I’m happy to say that I finished this and will be matting it soon enough. Used Artist Loft pens (For the first time, since the store was out of Microns) and a white Sakura gelly roll pen for some outlines. Feel free to repost AS LONG as I am credited. This is a drawing I am very proud of.
