My Bag and its Contents

The contents of my handbag. I had a bit of free time and my handbag was...er, at hand, So I thought I'd document the contents. I've seen this done a few times since joining dA, and have always wanted to give it a go :)

I'm pretty chuffed with how much I can actually fit in my handbag. One of the things I forgot to include was my passport, for buying alcohol (as I look too young and don't really have any other ID) and emergency moonlight flits... just in case I have too much alcohol.
And yeah, I'm pretentious enough to carry around some Metaphysical poetry and Shakespeare's Sonnets. It gives me something to read on the train and make me look sophistimicated like XD

Seriously tho, John Donne is awesome. It's like Mias wrote poetry. Look up Going to Bed or The Sun Rises.

Back pack, back pack, all the things that you might need you can find inside.

I looked up those poems. Why? 
Because a stranger told me to on her DA. 
I wasn't disappointed.

You pretty much described what I carry in my backpack-purse, except I have one of those big first-aid kits in mine

John Donne...was the one who wrote The Flea. (Questionably) Good memories form English class...

*sigh*... you make US life seem so boring; train pass? We don't have trains around here (that I'm aware of) we do have public transport, but it's so shitty.

I need to visit Europe one of these days... I need a change of air.

btw, great drawing. We seem to carry similar things; I also carry my passport because well, that's the only form of ID I have. :) hate the pic, tho. :)

(laughs) Getting flashbacks to English courses with John Donne. I agree, he can be a delightfully Mia-esque poet - as long as Mias never attempts to replicate "The Flea". John Donne got relabeled 'John Donne the pervert' for the rest of the course in my head after I read and analyzed that one... ;) And kudos for getting so much stuff in your bag - I'm exactly the same.

I love your drawing style AND your handbag! ^^
Really liked how you ordered the contents around the bag. Pretty interesting how many things you carry with. (I carry pretty much the same :P)
Inspired me to do something like this, too LOL

You lack a multitool. How are you suppose to escape being kidnapped by Ninja terrorists who inexplicably kidnapped you without a multitool? Unless of course you have a paper clip, a rubber band, and chewing gum.

Also you need a lighter. You just never know when you're going to need a lighter.

I did John Donne's poetry for A level. I have a strong desire to punch him in the face.
Or maybe our teacher was just very good at making me hate any poet he pulled out...

Personally, I kinda like John Donne. Did you ever read and analyze "Go and Catch a Falling Star"?

We did, had an entire book of his stuff analyzed.
But as I saw we had a rather terrible teacher who would make everything kinda blunt and dogmatic and hollow which influenced my entire class. Made writing the essay very difficult. I'm sure if I was just left to do it by myself or with somebody else more keen then I might have a different opinion.
Same thing goes to Phillip Larkin and Danny Abse. Although I really don't like Abse's stuff I warmed to Larkin after my mum helped me revise for the exam.

Oh wow, that's no fun to have a teacher like that. For my class we just did poetry for the Poetry Out Loud contest and I analyzed his poem to get a feel for how it should be read. I found it funny how he said all beautiful women are cheaters XD Hopefully you'll get better English teachers in the future.
