5 things

8 Feb

I was tagged by Kate over at The Chic Chickadee to list the 5 things I can’t leave the house without.

1. Cell phone

I actually don’t make or receive that many calls in a given day, but ready access to my email is important for work, and ready access to Facebook, etc. is important for me, therefore having my iphone with me at all times is also pretty damn important in general. Plus I feel like the one day I don’t have my cell phone will inevitably be the day I blow a flat or get lost or who knows what. Speaking of which, the google maps feature might be the most frequently used app on my phone, now that I think about it.

2. Keys

Obvious, but doubly important because this not only includes my house key and car key, but also the keys for work.

3. Pen(s)

My mother trained me never to be without a pen. When I was younger she always had one in her purse, ready to be used for random doodles, important note-making, and lending to everyone else around you who never has a pen on their person. There are, however, currently 4 pens in my purse, which isn’t strictly necessary.

4. My hair design kit

My kit with all my tools for school, along with the various folders and books I use, take up permanent residence in my car. I don’t know if I’ve even ever brought them inside my apartment, aside from the very first time I got them. The nice thing about this is that if you’re ever with me and you’re thinking, “damn, my hair looks like crap, I wish I had a flat iron, or even just a brush”, wish no more because I’ve got it all.

5. My wedding ring

I’m not one of these namby-pamby take-off-my-ring-so-it-doesn’t-get-lost-or-get-in-my-way types. My simple expedient for both concerns was just to pick a very delicate ring that fits perfectly, such that a.) it’s so light, I barely feel it and it’s never in my way, and b.) it will never slide off. The day that Trevor presents me with a 5-carat diamond ring, I might change my tune, but somehow I don’t think this will be an issue.
