With my last winter breaking quickly coming to an end, I decided to make a back to school essential list and gathered a couple of things I haven't been able to do without during my college career.  The first is my ever faithful (and super durable)

Fjallraven Kanken

backpack.  I've been obsessed with this backpack for quite some time and have even purchased more than one of these, they're so comfortable to carry (even when you're forced to lug around 3 textbooks + your laptop around in one day).  Another great plus is that they're so easy to clean! I've literally spilled a ziplock bag full of graphite shavings inside of my backpack and all I had to do was wipe it with a wet cloth and it was good as new.

Public Bike

which I'm anxiously awaiting for!  The final items are


, which of course are an essential protection for your important school related documents.
