What do you bring to work every day? Here’s what I bring with me to campus on teaching days, if you are ever wondering what to pack for grad school or professor life!
Tech and tools:
We all need a few tech tools to do our jobs, but I keep it pretty simple by bringing my laptop and an HDMI converter for teaching. Shrugs.
I also bring my bullet journal (this is my favorite) which holds my weekly to-do list. And these pens! Absolutely love them because they don’t smear. I also pack these headphones (I am not an airpods person, and for $25 why would I switch hahah).
Staying alive is my basic teaching day goal. It takes an embarrassing amount of stuff–
-headache, stomach, and allergy medicine
-water bottle (I just got this one and love how long it keeps ice, plus I often use it for a coffee refill on campus)
-lunch (I stock these easy meals and instant rice in my office drawers)
I don’t carry a lot of makeup with me these days but I tend to have one of these lipsticks stashed in case I look dead on a Zoom call. I used to carry a blush touch up stick too but since I switched to the most aggressive blush of all time it’s no longer an issue. Finally, I always have deodorant in my desk drawer!
The bags featured in this post are the Madewell Transport Tote and the Everlane Form Bag (no longer available but on a lot of secondhand sites!).
