Unfortunately, class starts on August 29th and it's time to consider the option of purchasing a new backpack. With that, I need to emphasize the word "consider" because I've gone backpack shopping several times. None of the backpacks seem to be able to measure up, though.
After browsing the shelves and back-to-school specials, I find myself reasoning that I don't need a new backpack. This one can make it through 17 more credits, right? Sure, I'll probably be spending a lot of time picking up books, pens, highlighters, and the laptop off the floor every time the zipper gives, but it's worth it.
Another thought is maybe buying an outer backpack to carry the backpack for me. Is that cheating?
As I think about it, here are two photographs of my travels with the backpack:
