University/College Survival Kit

After finishing my first semester of art college, I found it a little difficult to get on my feet it all went past really quickly but as I come into my second semester I have a better idea of what way I need to be organised and prepared during my early mornings and in class. As I get ready to go back to the hard work for another term I thought I would share my 'University Survival kit' with you all. This is based on what I feel I need to get me through the day and may not be the same for you, let me know what yours is in the comments, I'd love to see them!

Macbook- This is my pride and joy, and as I do animation it's a really important thing to have, plus it has a cheeky Breaking Bad reference on the front.

Backpack- Carrying all this stuff with me wouldn't be possible without my trusting galaxy bag.

2015 Diary and sketchbook- My sketchbook is glued to me 24/7 and this is a picture of it before it ends up messy and ripped by the end of the semester. I wouldn't have a clue what deadlines I have to meet if it wasn't for my little diary which I got on personal-planner.co.uk which is amazing!

Notebook- my lectures notes go down in this little gem, then at home I write them up into my sketchbook in a neater way.

Thought book- This is a little irrelevant book I keep with me for random little thoughts I have and want to jot down.

Graphics Tablet- This is what my course mostly is based around, digital drawing and concept art so my graphics tablet comes with me everyday.

ProMarkers and pencilcase- These markers are a complete gift, I wouldn't be able to draw as well without them, amazing for tonal work etc, and my big pencilcase to keep them in.

Water bottle- I've been trying to drink more water as much as I can and sometimes in the morning I'd throw a lemon and some strawberries into my water to give it more flavour.

Earphones- My bus rides in the morning would be the death of me if it wasn't for these guys.

Glasses- If I didn't have my glasses my lectures would be too blurry as it would be impossible to see 4ft in from of me.

Phone and Ereader- My Ereader is what I used on lunch and in the morning and on the bus home as my time to relax and read on, of course I'd be lost without my phone any time of the day as well!

 I hope this helps as a guideline for anyone out there, let me know your essentials for school/college or anything else!
