March 15, 2011: The Tale of The Orange Bag


This was my first and last Jansport bag.

i remember when i was in sixth grade– in 2000, i was turning 12 and wanted nothing more than a unique jansport bag. at that time it was considered to be an expensive bag (less than a thousand if my memory serves me right).

I had to do a lot of pleading to get this cool bag that i made my own (i lost the bracelets and the pins along the way) but I guess it’s one of the best purchases my parents ever made because eleven years later it’s still alive and kicking (it is now in charge of carrying my computer).

i guess today it just hit me that i’ve had something for eleven years and i’ve been around long enough to remember these things.
