If there's one thing (well, one of the many) I regret the most about my fashion choices back in college, it's the fact that I completely veered away from backpacks. I was in too much of a hurry to grow up and all about how high school was so yesterday that I didn't realize it was my last chance to sport the ever-convenient bag.
