    in the bag

    when I was 6 the contents of my tiny disney princess purse were all the things a little girl thinking she is an adult needs. my little pony wallet. dr. pepper bonne bell. and on sundays, the precious moments bible.

    now I am 24 and the bag is bigger. quite a bit bigger. now I live in a place where I spend well over an hour on public transportation everyday. and I am always moving from one thing to the next. and that one bag carries around all the elements of my everyday, ordinary life. sometimes I wish I still had that disney princess purse though.

    things in my bag on any given day:

    bible – I’ll admit, the precious moments one had better pictures.

    a diary of private prayer – the way he prays is absolutely magnificent. a game-changer, really.

    book of the week – granted, I’ve been reading Les Mis for quite a few.

    camera – because I really like to take pictures. and I’m still working on that pesky courage thing.

    notebook – because one must always be ready when the urge to play “harriet the spy” strikes.

    metro card – that thing is like gold. gold, I tell you.

    ipod – how else am I going to drown out the deafening silence of my commute?

    planner – yes, I know there is also one on my phone. but I just really love writing things down.

    cherry chapsitck – the grown-up equivalent to bonne bell. although not as cool as dr. pepper flavor.

    phone – we all say it’s for emergencies, but let’s be honest, it’s for everything else too.

    wallet – it has a lot more stuff than the my little pony wallet. but not much more money.

    keys – because I occasionally need to get somewhere.

    various writing utensils – always more than one. always a multitude colors. please do not ask me why.

    gloves – fingerless is important. because I have lots of things with pages that need to be turned.

    what’s in your bag?
