I know all this talk of backpacks might seem ridiculous to you, but ever since grade school my backpack has made my life easier, and as my life has evolved so has my backpack.
I'm someone that is literally running around NYC all day, and because I have to fulfill so many different roles in one day, I need my backpack to be appropriate for just as many situations. Thus, I found the perfect solution with this TIMBUK2 Messenger Backpack over at backpacks.com.
I would've never thought of getting a messenger backpack before, but I'm beyond pumped with my choice.
I knew I needed something sporty, but I also wanted something stylish, so that if I needed to run from training a client to a fashion event I could, and do so without looking ridiculous. You'd be shocked how many times I've had to do just this, but hey, life is meant to be full and an adventure.
Besides, if you haven't already caught on, I totally march to the beat of my own drummer.
Another important requirement for me was I needed something that could fit my laptop, my camera, a change or clothes, a pair of sneakers, and a few other random things. It's super funny when I go digging into my backpack, and just keep pulling stuff out. People look at me like I'm Mary Poppins, but I like to think of myself as an Urban Hiker, you just never know where you're going to end up, and what you're going to need.
Ultimately, my crazy life has required certain things from me, and I know that yours has too. What you may need could be completely different than what I need, but chances are you're using a backpack that isn't perfect for you, and that's making your life harder.
