I'm an undergraduate student at Drexel University. Most days I leave my dorm in the morning and don't return until the evening, so I carry everything I need for the day with me.

1) My backpack, a North Face Borealis

2) Camelback water bottle: gotta stay hydrated!

3) Clipboard: I use this a lot more than you would expect.

4) Hot Hands hand warmers: it's cold in the winter!

5) Pill capsule: for everything from advil to prescription medication. I bought mine here.

6) Tide Stain Stick: for emergency stains.

7) Mechanical pencil (.5mm lead).

8) Hand Sanitizer.

9) iPod Nano (5th gen) and Apple Earpods: I like keep up with the news by listening to podcasts on my way to class and it's my dedicated music player.


10) One of many external batteries: because I can't seem to make my iPhone battery last a full day. This is one of my favorites.

11) 2014 Planner: for school assignments. I bought it here.


12) TI-84 Graphing Calculator: a must-have for engineering students.

13) Leatherman: I have this one.


14 & 15) Lightning and MicroUSB chargers: even if my devices don't need a charge, someone else's will.

16) Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition: excellent for notetaking during class and where I keep most of my textbooks (as ebooks). I can't say enough good things about it. You can check it out here.


Pictured above are the things that I carry on my person.

iPhone 5S with this case.


My "wallet": a bundle including my college ID, driver's license, debit card, and cash, held together with a binder clip, small enough to fit in my front pocket.

Keys: my keys as well as my tiny 16gig flashdrive and small pocket knife, held together with this wonderful keyring so I can get my keys on and off easily.
