There are some things relating to school that you look forward to as much as a trip to the gyno’s office. Think early mornings, homework, and that awful algebra class. Argggggh. All that talk about equations makes me want to hit myself over the head with a scientific calculator. However, there are actually some positives about heading back to class. One of the big ones is shopping for school supplies.
If you’re like me, and you’re obsessed with new school supplies, you will totally get the joy of buying new pencils, notebooks, and binders is almost as good as buying new makeup. #StationeryPorn It was especially good when mom and dad were picking up the tab when I bought pencils with the fuzzy ends and sparkly pencil cases. However, I still enjoy things when it is me footing the bill.
