I was pretty stoked to find an old cordouroy Jansport backpack at Goodwill. I’d for a while been wanting to try and sport a backpack. I admire their practicality and capacity to lug around not only gym clothes but also possibly snacks, computer and childhood insecurities. But I think I’ve realized that I don’t need any help feeling frumpy or childish, and it’s super hard to get my metrocard out of without causing a backpack scene, and it just simply does not transition to evening well. So, I will probably continue to use it, as I do with most things that I dub problematic.
