this post is inspired by this. It’s the end of the year and I’m tired so just a bit of fun…
So in terms of getting back and forth to campus (I’ve just a cheap bag I keep in the office I keep teaching stuff in) I’ve got three options for an everyday bag.
Back and forth to work – This brown Saddleback slim briefcase – this bag will last out my career.
If I need to carry more to work – this brown saddleback briefcase – you can get pretty much anything in it.
Overnight trip somewhere – This saddleback backpack – it’s like a tardis and great for two days and has a handy divider in it.
In terms of pens, I’ve got two options I always carry – Parker pen and a 1970s Montblanc pen.
I tend not to use paper but if I do write stuff down, then it has to be a red and black.
My wallet is this super-slim – The Ridge.
Tech is a bit more complex – around campus, it’s the Surface Go, away from campus and need to marking, an ipad (because turnitin works off-line and thus anyway).
If it’s longer off campus and I’ve got a lot of content to write – it has to be the thinkpad x260 (soon to be upgraded to an x1 carbon) – all day (hot-swappable!) battery, every port known to (wo)man and best in class keyboard.
Now if we got into shoes and watches that could be an entirely different post but for shoes I favour brands such as Trickers like this
And trickers like this:
