I was on campus last week for shadowing and you won’t believe how much walking I had to do! I also had a job interview that day which was about a mile away from my shadowing site, and a whole lot of other stuff going on– it was a lot. While I was making my way through the city, I started thinking about the things I had and (still needed) that made my little adventure a little easier. So for today’s post, I’m sharing “College in the City” Essentials. I have a round-up of shoes, bags, and other things that will make my cross-campus trips a breeze. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find a use for them too.

I was doing so much running around on Tuesday and I didn’t even have my water bottle on me! Shame on me because it was actually hot and humid that day– I was barely making it.

I’ve been caught in the rain so many times and have been drenched on each occasion. Here are some things that I’ve noticed that other people have used to successfully weather the storm. I’m slowly but surely getting on board.
SN: I couldn’t get it in the widget, but I think backpack covers are important too. They’re like rain jackets for your bookbag and are supposed to keep water from seeping through.
