One of the truths of life is that there's an inherent cyclical nature to things. And so it is that we find ourselves here experiencing one of those cyclical events: the back-to-school season.

Back to school supplies
There are ample ways to express oneself and customize school supplies. First off, selecting items that delight you is a great start. Perhaps it's the colour, finish, type of ink, hard-or-soft back, print or feel of the object in your hand that makes it feel like the right choice. You can also decorate whatever you have by embellishing it with stickers, using a marker to write your name on it or draw a little doodle.

In an interview, Salma Hayek spoke of how she would get excited about covering her books with
decorative paper at the start of each new school year. Have you ever tried that? Decorative papers and stickers can also be used to personalize storage boxes.

You may also be thinking of practical considerations. What works well in a backpack? Is the size and weight of what you're carrying appropriate? If you use a fountain pen, you may wish to switch to
cartridges when you're on campus.

Some people also carry small pouches to keep things separated and easy to find. One for tech-related items, such as cords, charges and earphones. Another for things like bandages, tissues, lip balm, hair elastics and medicine.

There are certainly many things to consider when selecting your stationery. This is especially true if you write with your left hand. We'll be back next week with more on the nuances of being a leftie!
