Whenever I leave for work, I always have my bag. I carry more than just my wallet. I have a brush and comb to keep my hair detangled. I have my planner, notebook, and pencil case to write my lists and page and keep up with my schedule. I stash snacks because I know I’ll get hungry. I keep a supply of tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen, and ginseng for those “just in case” situations. I have chapstick and lotion because growing old comes with changing skin. I pack my bag for convenience and emergencies, and that’s how I like it.
I am late to the party for Susannah Conway’s August Break 2015, but I intend to follow the prompts through September. I’ll tag them #SeptemberBreak2015 — because I’m not quite ready to return to my self-directed schedules just yet. Additionally, I’ll be writing my responses as my camera lens has decided to malfunction after 4.5+ years of use. *Unless, of course, I find an old favorite to share.
