    Why would you put pictures of your crush on you supplies? Isn't that to easy for them and a lot of people don't know who their crush is before school, when they are decorating the supplies.

    Goth is a way of life. Not caring caring what others think, liking yourself. Taking a look at the darker side of life. Goths dont always wear black. And can be happy.

    I don't think your crush wants pictures of him/her all over your pencil and notebook.

    You're a little late on the style of preppy. Preps wear short shorts (not to short), Over the shoulder tops, cami's, and boat shoes. Ya.

    And then have trouble carrying all of your books. I've seen people do this so I guess it works, but I always thought it not the best idea if you have to carry multiple books for an extended period of time (and that is in your arms).

    idk, I used a oversized purse through the last yr of elementary (here its grade 7,actually), and it worked out fine. that tote bag there may not be big enough though to hold all your books. mine was way bigger.
