What’s In My Bag- EveryWordYouSay Edition!

One of my friend’s gave me this idea to do a “What’s In My Bag” post. My bag has everything I could possibly need and so much more junk that I will never need in my life and I have no idea why it’s in my bag. This isn’t meant to be a serious post, but this will honestly be what’s in my bag at this precise moment. Now I haven’t actually looked at the contents of my bag in a very long time so this could be interesting!

This is my beautiful bag 😛 As you can see, it’s a Marvel bag covered in superheroes- what else would I carry my stuff in?! I actually love this bag, it is like the TARDIS. It looks small on the outside but is ginormous on the inside, which allows me to embrace my love of hoarding! I haven’t emptied out my bag in about a year so there could be anything in here, and I’m actually quite nervous about sharing my junk with the internet. But here goes…

Here we have my reading material:

  • Focus magazine. I am a huge geek so anything sciency is my life! Focus is a magazine made by the BBC which basically shows the most amazing scientists and science stories, and if you live in England please go buy this because even if you’re not too into science it’s fascinating and I would definitely recommend it.
  • The Big Issue. This is a magazine that homeless people can buy then they sell on for profit. It’s an amazing charity because it gives homeless people a job, because the majority of homeless people find themselves in that situation through no fault of their own, not because they’re “too lazy to get a job”. So I do try to buy The Big Issue as much as I can- it’s only £2 and it’s actually a pretty good read 🙂
  • All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I have almost finished this book and I have cried so many times. It is beautiful and awful all at the same times, and I would definitely recommend reading this because I love it 🙂
  • My Sister Lives On The Mantlepiece by Annabel Pitcher. This is my back-up book in case I finish reading my first book 😛 I have already read this book but you may notice there’s something weird about the cover (I’l wait here while you go back and look at the picture again). I volunteer each year to give out books for World Book Night, so basically this charity gives me 18 free books and I give them out to people who don’t usually read very often. So, this was one of my leftover books.

My electronics, because I’m a teenager and can’t go 10 minutes without being on the internet:

  • So this is my Windows tablet. Since Microsoft is not paying me to write this post, I’m going to be honest. It’s really convenient and good for just messing around on Facebook, but this is awful for doing anything fast- I will click on something then have to wait 20 minutes while it decides if it wants to obey me. But it’s my only personal computer thingy so I can’t complain! And then I’ve got my cable to charge my phone because modern day phones have a battery life of 3 minutes.

My beauty essentials:

  • Gloves and socks. Oh dear. Britain is currently in the middle of a heatwave and I’ve got gloves and spare socks in my bag! Basically these were from when I was working in the winter delivering Chinese takeaway and I was freezing, but I think I should probably take them out of my bag now 😛
  • Hairclips. My hair always manages to get in my face so I always keep a whole load of clips in my bag.
  • Lip balm. I feel like every woman should have lip balm in there bag, it’s just an essential.
  • A thousand mini elastic bands. I bought a bag of 1000 elastic bands to tie up my hair. Then I accidentally dropped the whole lot in the bottom of my bag -_-

My essential essentials:

  • Game of Thrones Season 3. I am so far behind! I’ve just started watching it, but I make my boyfriend watch all the episodes with me so he can cover my ears when there’s a sad bit because he’s seen all the episodes so far. The next episode I need to watch will apparently show “The Red Wedding” I have no idea what that is but my boyfriend seems really excited to watch it with me so it must be good!
  • Three fruit bar things. My nan gave them to me and her exact words were “They’re not very nice, you can have them”. Thanks nan!
  • Adventure Time pencil case. I am a massive fan of Adventure Time! So my boyfriend bought me an Adventure Time stationary set and it’s amazing!
  • A calculator. Because… idk? In case I need to do maths?
  • Painkillers. Yeah I have nerve damage in my back and am waiting for physiotherapy so that sucks, so I guess it’s daily painkillers for me 😦
  • Empty purse, coins, and BonusBond vouchers. I have an empty purse because I decided to store all my money (all £2.35 of it) in the bottom of my bag 😦 I’ve also got £2 in BonusBond vouchers which are basically vouchers you can spend in pretty much every shop in England, yay!
  • A walnut. This is quite a cute story! There’s a walnut tree in the garden of the house my boyfriend’s dad’d house. My boyfriend was telling me a story of when he was little he used to climb that tree and pick walnuts off the top branches, so this is a walnut from that tree.
  • Random junk that I have no idea why I’ve got: an old memory stick, wet wipe, tangled headphones, a key to my boyfriend’s locker at a college we no longer go to, safety pins, and two pens that don’t work.

So there you go! You now know all the weird stuff that I’ve been carrying around everyday for the past year, thank you for reading and do any of you guys carry weird stuff around with you?

The Google Tag!

I saw this on this blog and thought it was a cool idea! Basically I’m going to go through the alphabet and see the Google searches I most recently made for that letter. Hopefully the results are not too weird! So for all you nosey lot, here we go…

  • Average waiting time for nhs physiotherapy. Okay this one isn’t too bad so we’re off to a good start! Basically I’ve got ‘inflamed’ nerves in my back and need physiotherapy, so I googled how long it was going to take and it said months! So I rung up my doctor and she said I probably won’t even get it this year. So that’s fun 🙂
  • Best TED talks. I am a MASSIVE fan of TED talks and I must have watched thousands of them so I was just looking for new ones. And if you really want to know, this is my favourite one and seriously just watch it!
  • Chug. Okay we might be getting into the weird stuff now. A chug is a mixture of a chihuahua and a pug. I was tutoring and my student was talking about wanting to get a chug, so of course I had to google this majestic creature.

This is a Chug.

  • Drops mic. I don’t remember googling this, but okay.
  • Everybody is a genius. I was nominated for the “Very Inspirational Blogger Award” and I just wanted to double check who said my favourite quote. Sorry, that’s not very interesting 😛
  • Funko pop uk. I was tutoring and went to get him a drink, and this is what he searched. Basically they’re little figures like this…

  • Giant squid. I have no idea why I googled this, I think it was during a tutoring lesson (I’m noticing that a lot of my weird searches happen when I’m supposed to be educating the future generation, oops).
  • How much are taxis. Yeah this is me trying to internet search my way to being an adult. I realised that I need to book a taxi, but I have no idea how much they cost! I am such a tight ass so if something is within an hour walk I will walk, so I’ve never needed to get a taxi.
  • I’m a bus gif. Because I am immature I found this hilarious! For those of you who haven’t seen it, here we go (but just a warning for younger viewers it does have a mildly naughty word).
  • Jigsaw. This was a big mistake! I was helping my student with his DT Homework where he had to find a picture of a jigsaw. If I give you readers one piece of advice, let it be this: Do not google image search ‘jigsaw’. Expectation vs reality:

  • Kerplunk. I was having an argument with my family over how Kerplunk was spelt, I was right of course 😛
  • Lies. This isn’t as sinister as it sounds! I was looking for the book cover of Lies by Michael Grant for a post I did a little while ago.
  • Money wasted by government. I was having an argument with my parents because I was complaining the government need to spend more money on the NHS (specifically physiotherapy) and he said they’ve got other important stuff to spend money on. So I did a bit of googling and it turns out the government have no idea how to budget, for example they spent £7.2 million on a mobile mine detection system that didn’t work. Genius!
  • Nina Nesbitt. This girl is an amazing singer 🙂
  • Owl City. Again, I love the songs by this guy 🙂
  • Photoshop of megalodon. This search was also carried out during one of my lessons! I can’t really remember how we got onto the conversation of giant sharks, but we did. OMG wait I remember! It was when we were talking about giant squids!

  • Quiverfull. Ugh. Read my previous post and you’ll understand!
  • Rox. I was playing Scrabble and nobody believed me that this was a word. It wasn’t. 😥
  • Spy glasses. I want some spy glasses. I think I would be an excellent undercover agent 😛
  • Tourne definition. I have no idea what this is. I just googled it again and it means ‘turn’ in French. I have no idea why I googled this?! Unless one of my family stole my laptop to google French words? Hmmmm…
  • Unicorn onesie. I want a Unicorn onesie so bad!! (*hint, hint* if anyone wants to send me one :P)
  • Very inspiring blogger award. I was looking for the logo 🙂
  • Why are photography needed in criminal investigate. Oh this was for my last college assignment. Can you feel the desperation?! This is what college does to you!!!
  • X-rays. My mum needs to get an x-ray so I feel like I should be educated on the subject, because I know she’ll ask me loads of questions about it and I have to maintain my reputation as a genius 😛
  • YouTube. Of course.
  • Zedonk. My brother mentioned this, and I had to google it. So I’ll leave you with the happy thought that this things is gracing our planet!

So there we go, and if you want to give it a try, go for it!
