I recently saw the post over on Lifehacker about Elliot’s bag in Mr. Robot, and thought it would be interesting to show what I carry around from day to day. The contents of this bag all came together during the summer when I was picking strawberries, coaching tennis, managing a pool, lifeguarding, detailing cars, and waiting tables at a restaurant, all in one day.

Eventually, however, this became the bag that I had with me at all times, except for when I was at home, or school (it then resided in the back seat of my car.) Within the bag is anything and everything that I needed during my 12+ hour workdays, and anything I needed to help me enjoy myself following the day’s work.
