Don’t Mind Me: I’m Obsessional

Hey Guys:

OK, so as I write this I’m kinda freaking out, because I’ve got just under an hour left of being 13. It’s been such a mental, crazy year, but as I said on Twitter, I like crazy, so here’s to an even crazier 2016, and 14th year alive. I seem to have the ability to turn anything happy into a morbid thought, just by including one of the following words: alive, dead, living, death, die, died. I’m skilled…

so, this blog post is a bit of a funny one for me; I think it’s the pre-birthday hyper stage [we all have it, just admit it]. In short, I bought a bag on Saturday in Brighton…
*Quick advert for myself: You can check out my post all about my Brighton trip
if you’re interested.*
…which I’m slightly in love with. It’s like a green-and-brown kind of colour, and a shoulder bag. I like it because, unlike my old shoulder bag, it has a zip [as did my old bag], but poppers-dressed-as-buckles over the top. My old bag had Velcro, which came undone really easily, especially if the bag was quite heavy, which with me it was. Look, I need my filled water bottle, OK?

I’ve gone off topic here. So, I have this bag, and I want to fill it with all the necessaries [is that a word?], so it’s like my male version of a handbag [look, I’m naturally feminie]. I’m trying to pack it, and I’m not sure if I’ve got everything; it just doesn’t feel complete. So, I thought I’d list what I’ve got in it, and you guys could give suggestions of any additions I should make, or maybe what you have/would have in your bag.

Here goes:
– White cane [blindie essential]
– White cane holder [accessory]
– Symbol cane [blindie help]
– Smints [must-have]
– Peppermint chewing gum [must-have]
– Gloves [fingerless, of course]
– Wallet [and therefore money]
– Keys [I like to get in the door, you know?]
– Earphones [must-have]
– Portable charger [for USB cables, like my phone]
– Phone charger with wall-plug bit [you never know when there’ll be a charge chance]
– Mango hand sanitiser
– moisturising hand cream
– Deodorant
– Signature guide [to help me sign my name on forms etc]
– water bottle [I’m thirsty, OK?]
– iPhone [when I’m out]
– iPad [when necessary]

WHAT AM I MISSING? Any advice? What would you put in your bag? Would you even have a bag, or am I just going overboard? Maybe I love this bag too much… I mean, I bloody better love this bag, it was bloody Β£25, although it was from the Brighton Lanes, so that makes everything 100 times better. I’ve talked about how much I love The Lanes in the post I linked to above, but I really do love them. Stop, L, stop, before you start to obsess…

I literally just had to sit on my hands for about 3 minutes to prevent myself from typing about my love of The Lanes; it’s already on a post, L, no need to rewrite it, right?

Love you all, and a Happy Birthday to both myself [not self-centred], and to
as it’s her birthday tomorrow too! Best wishes floating your way through the Blogosphere…

  2. do something unforgetable to prepare for the transition to almost-but -not -really- adult hood . I can borrow you my unicorn if you wanted to take a ride on it .

  3. Happy birthday! Also, this bag sounds AWESOME! And especially awesome because you’re so excited about it! I am so jealous now, I want a bag that makes me this excited! Sounds great. I don’t know if there’s anything else I’d put in it… You’ve covered pretty much everything I can think of.. Maybe lip balm? A snack (that’s temporary but I always enjoy having something to snack on in my bag). Well happy birthday again and I hope you continue to love your new bag and use it a lot πŸ™‚

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! I can’t believe you were 13, you’re so mature! (And frankly so are all the bloggers who I thought were 17 and turned out to be five years younger)
    I hope this year will be great for you; for me 13 was my worst but it all started to look up from there and it never stopped, and I hope it’ll be the same for you πŸ˜€

  5. I love that you get so enthusiastic about accessories! The only Blindie essentials I carry are my symbol cane, sunglasses and phone (for all those times I get lost and need Google maps πŸ˜‚). I’d say a hairbrush/super-manly-comb, but I’m not sure how long your hair is so it might not be needed. Mine is just ridiculous – I’m 80% tangled blonde hair πŸ˜‚. And THANK GOD someone else carries hand sanitizer. I have a collection. It all started when o put my hand in spit holding onto the handrail down the stairs, and I didn’t have time to go wash them before History, and my teacher found it all too amusing!


      1. I had one hanging on the outside of my bag in a neon silicon case and a teacher thought it was a torch! I understand your obsession, and its certainly not the worst one out there!

      3. They’re the best things. You can get the bath and body works ones REALLY cheap on eBay, and the rest are from the Body Shop. I highly recommend 🌟
