Hello World!

I really need a new backpack to carry all my uni books in as the current one is on its last legs. I've tried sewing up the sides, sewing one of the straps back on, and even reinforcing the bottom, which is so threadbare that I feel my books will come crashing through any minute.

Even so, I can't bear to buy a new one. Firstly, I hate spending money on things that I need, but don't really want. But secondly, and most importantly, I like the current one! It's not too big, so I don't go around whacking people in the head with it, and I've had it for years.

Come to think of it, I've actually had it since 1997, when I bought it for the fourth form history trip to France and Belgium. It was meant to carry my lunch, a clipboard and a few pens. I've since had it packed with at least five textbooks, and the fact that it's now split halfway down one side might be a sign that that wasn't too good an idea.

So now the question is, do I bite the bullet and go and buy a new one, or do I wait until I'm walking up a staircase and everything falls out the bottom? Errrrr....
