I’d like to fill my backpack
with all the things that
comprised my academic life
but I can’t put in
the science experiments gone awry
or the butchered debates
or the zany recitations
and the inside jokes won’t fit
So I’ll have to rummage for them
in memories that I hope
don’t fall out of mind

Take off you’re backpacks–high school is over. The things they carried.

there was nothing like the feeling of buying a new backpack for the new school year. there was always a wide selection, and we had to pick. we couldn’t be too childish nor could we go too boring. mother would always try to make me use my old bag, but i’d refuse. i wanted a new start to my year with a new bag. the colors were never too girly, always just right.

take it wherever you go. it carries things. it can also carry you to wanderings, journeys and even paradise. paradise can be found in the most unlikely of places. who knows what you’ll discover when you put on some sneakers, open your eyes, and see.

As I unload my books after a long day of torment, I realized how stereotypical my every thought is. That is grammatically incorrect. I am an idiot. Why am I taking AP? lololololol, so stupid. I started horribly so now as you can see i am quitting

I don’t wear a backpack very often because I am home schooled. I don’t have to lug books everywhere, so I don’t need a bag for lugging books. I still have one, though I am not sure why.

I see a man, hiking across the country. Living his dream,although no one else can understand his obsession. Freedom, health, smiles, he’s living his dream. No doubt about that.

It’s all in there. The drugs. The water. But it’s heavier than life and leaving brushburns on her shoulders. They look like sunburns in two strips. Still, one needs to keep on moving regardless of the many many pockets.

Backpacks are for kids who go to school. Sometimes they are for adults, but only fashion backpacks, whatever that means. When you grow up you are supposed to carry a purse if you’re a girl, or if you’re a guy you’re supposed to carry a wallet and get a girlfriend who will carry all the other stuff you need to bring around with you. Low maintenance people can get by without purses or girlfriends. Otherwise you’re stuck.

You have this backpack, right? And it’s all full of the things you’ll need. But then you start packing them empty spaces full of rocks. How dumb is that? But that’s what you’re doing every time you do something to make your life harder – like befriending me. I’ll just be a rock in your pack.
But I’ll definitely rock that pack.

One word one day I wrote One word faith was. Faith was that word. Faith on the world I would have. One day I would see that it would come true.

My backpack has all sorts of uninteresting things in it, like my make up, some brushes, homework, money, pencils, and a book maybe. I always have my backpack with me because it is also my purse! It has speakers on it, so I can plug my mp3 player into it and play some nifty music. People freak out sometimes because they either think its really cool or really obnoxious.
By Courtney on 06.02.2011
I put my backpack on but I first checked its contents. Inside I had the following: a bottle of water, umbrella, book, snack, gum and cell phone.
I was prepared for whatever life had to offer for the day. Now to get on the road to fun.
What’s next I asked myself and where shoudl

I carry one to school. It’s red and northface. It’s really comfortalbe. I put all my books and folders and papers in it and it helps keep me organized. I’m taking it with me to PAVE this summer. also both parts of the word rhyme which makes the word a really fun word to say and write. Backpacks are the bomb!
By Sami on 06.02.2011
backpack is a great way to carry around items and use it as a comfortable means of transporting bulky objects that would otherwise be tough to carry. the word is cool because its almost the same word twice after each other but the second time uses a “p” instead of a “b”. this makes the word fun to say. i have a backpack that i use every day and its a great help.

Backpack. What a weird word..

the sun was breaking in peter’s eyes to start a new day.
he pulled his backpack securely on his shoulders and smiled up ahead as he rode the bike.
peter was going to make a difference today.

At our high school there is a policy of no backpacks. But people could easily fit guns or drugs in their pockets! That is ridiculous, do they think everyone is carrying a bomb? Backpacks are important for carrying supplies. Following that logic, they should also ban pants, because people could carry dangerous things in their pockets.
By Gavin Lockard on 06.02.2011
I love backpacks. You can carry all kinds of things in them, especially when it comes to school stuff. I’m thinking about getting one next year for sophomore year. They’re so chill., I could get an awesome one with BATMAN on it!! And then I’d put a picture of a turtle, just so it works. :) Because turtles are cool. I really want one and his name would be batman., (see, it all makes sense) I would then take him to college with me and he would be like my roommate, only cooler and he wouldn’t eat my food. I love food. I really do. A turtle eating my food would be bad.
By Nikoma on 06.02.2011
I never had a backpack. When I went to school people didn’t need them. Kids today have way too much homework. It makes me mad. It’s counter to “family values” to never have time to be a part of the family.
By Courtney Cox on 06.02.2011
Everybody at my school always thought that backpacks were to be used as a fashion statement. People collected things to put on their backpacks and different pins and buttons would always clink down the halls. It was always to see how all the different things that were on peoples zippers expressed who they were, or really who they wanted people to think they were.

She loaded her backpack with the essentials. Makeup, books, cell phone, a change of clothes. She knew better than to wear what she wanted to wear out of the house. Her mother would flip! so she always carried it with her in her backpack, changing at the corner stop and then heading off to school like normal. Today’s outfit was especially important to change into, because it was the outfit that would land her the boy she had had her eyes on for awhile now.

They went backpacking one time in the forest. It was wet and hot. That was before the animals. Some said this was really the way to view nature. Maybe they were right. Either way, this was some fun.

I’ve had my black Jansport backpack since high school – middle school even. I remember writing my name in white out and thinking that i was so cool. Even though it broke half way through high school I continued to use it

I loaded my backpack with Geobars and Volvic and left the safety of my home to probe the strange and unknown terrain of Wrath. The maps I had were so old and delicate and in a language that I’d never known, so after a few months I abandoned them and simply looked in all the dark and devilish places. It was by chance that I found Wrath via a path disguised as sweet and perfect.

My backpack is pink. I’m not really a pink type of girl but this one is ridiculously cute. It has a green design. I know pink and green don’t really go together but some how it does, Its a vera bradley
