it costs about $60 on ebags.com, which i guess is pretty decent. but i have a hard time justifying this purchase because:
1. i really want to be a minimalist. i do. and minimalists don’t own 30+ bags.
2. it’s a backpack. how often does a 32-year-old really use a backpack?
3. i DID use a backpack nearly everyday for the last 2 years — when i was an actual student. when i was at BU, i just sucked it up and used the old nasty backpack i was using in college. it seems kind of nonsensical that i’d buy a backpack NOW, 2 months after school is over.
but! but! it’s on sale! and i might need it in china! and i have a bad shoulder so i do need a backpack! i need to buy it right now because it might sell out and i may never see another backpack i like for the rest of my life!
