But how do you reconcile your intellectual snobbery with your fashion sensibilities?  Is that possible??

::shrugs::

I was an art major in college?  I think that about explains it, even if it doesn't provide a justification.

Anyway, I'm not saying that I WILL NOT wear a dorky backpack if there really and truly is no feasible alternative.  I just would rather not if it can be avoided.  I'm also trying to avoid on the one hand buying an ugly bag I don't like only to find out that a better looking one would have served just as well, and on the other hand wasting money on a "hip" bag only to find that I have to go get some practical atrocity on wheels.

OMG OMG oh my *&^%!

Should I have waffles or eggs for breakfast tomorrow?  I can't take it!  Oh my *&^%!  Waffles taste great...but I don't need the sugar!

I DON'T NEED THE SUGAR PEOPLE...
oh my *&^%...

Eggs are the healthier option...but maybe a whole wheat bagel...I don't know what to do!

I wish Wally was here...he could calm everyone down...

(I've had too much sugar today.)

Waffles and eggs are considerably less expensive than a quality bag  :P

If Wally were here, he'd probably try to get current students to supply him with a strap width to class rank ratio.

I think I'll just use a plastic bag from the supermarket

I got this bag and used it in Europe, and it was horribly painful, so I think I'll use it in law school too (was the reason I bought a bag with a laptop compartment in the first place):

... or something similar.  disc, they have some patterns that aren't horrible..?  I could see you rocking maybe the red plaid one, or if you get the wheeled version there is a brown plaid.

We shall scour the internet and find you something practical and yet dischord-y.

Random, I'm confused by the bolded.  Although, you know, law school IS all about masochism  ;)

I think I could do this, I'd feel like I was on Safari:

Yeah, I've been looking on Etsy, and while I've found some stuff that LOOKS awesome, none of it looks ergonomically sound.

I too had no interest in the rolly bag. . . that is until my husband, a physical therapist, threatened to stop giving me back rubs unless I got one.  I decided the back pain just wasn't worth it.
