Our passing periods were so short that I HAD to carry my books with me everywhere. I had to walk home from school about a mile and a half, and I remember there were times when I couldn't do my homework because I couldn't carry all my books home! I've definatly busted my share of backpack zippers trying to cram all the material in. :chuckle
Happily, I have a car now, so maybe it won't be too bad. I also have at least 15 minutes between all my classes, so I can either go out to my car and switch books or rent a locker. I'd rather have a messenger bag because I like the way they look. Lol!
Being an *adult* now though, I should probably go for something that will be practical. I think I'll wait till I actually see my textbooks and go from there.

i think i would have had to drop if i had to carry all the nursing books. we usually needed at least 2 of the big books every day.

a&p books were the heaviest... so glad those classes are over.
will get my first nursing books this coming week, really anxious to look them over ahead of time.
