It's in the Bag: What the Contents Say About You

You are what you carry.

 

(SPOT.ph) What's in a bag? Would a bag, containing any other item, be just as...er...baggy? If you're any typical city dweller, you always carry a piece of home with you. Aside from the basics (phone, wallet, keys), there are the essentials. These are items you just can't be without and it varies from person to person. For some, it's lipstick. For others, it's discount coupons. Others carry around a bit of trash in their bag and we shouldn't judge them. Better in than out and better have a "busy" bag than be a litterer, right? 

 

What's a "busy" bag, you ask? We'll get to that. Let's check out all the other types of bag first...and what it says about the people who carry them.

The Bag of War

Key elements aside from personal effects: It could be any bag, but the kikay kit is there, containing facepaint! Everything anyone needs to look a little more fresh and confident to face the world!

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Puts a lot of effort into looking pleasing—to match the personality, duh. 

 

 

The Tita Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: The bag is probably a tote, but there's a smaller bag there for groceries. You'll also find medicine, a scarf, and an abaniko. Oh, and coupons!

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Likes being prepared and probably likes rubbing it in your face that she (or he!) has everything you need. 

 

 

The Commuter Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: The bag is probably enormous and contains an umbrella, snacks, two wallets (a real one and decoy), two phones (a real one and a decoy), a type of weapon, and a charger (because!). Not in the picture? Some random trash. 

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Will clear that trash out as soon as possible, because the owner of this bag will likely check the contents as soon as he or she reaches his or her destination to check if everything's still there. Bag owner just wants to sleep. Bag owner is tired. 

 

 

The Loot Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: It's not sizeable, but someone saw a preview of the contents. Laptop? Tablet? Other gadgets? Jackpot. 

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Should learn self-defense if he or she hasn't. Keep your eyes on your valuables, chong

The No-Bag Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: Its non-existence?

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Has a car. There's more to him or her than that, but around commuter friends, that's usually the most pertinent aspect of his or her being.

 

 

 

The Cat Lover's Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: It could be any bag, but said bag is likely dingy and a bit damaged (by cats, obviously). Bag contains cat food. It's the ultimate sign of servitude to felines.

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Lives with cats. A lot of cats. Plural. Many.

 

 

The Health Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: Likely a backpack, with running shoes, change of clothes, and a sports bottle. 

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Will be jogging later. See ya!

 

 

The Art Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: Funky print, easy to throw around, and contains pen and paper. Camera optional.

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Sits around coffee shops waiting for clients to arrive. Hashtag: Freelance.

 

 

The Writer's Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: Pen. Writers have pens, right?

The shoulder on which this rests upon: Dreams of being published. Little does this person know that writers' bags really look like...

 

 

The Busy Bag

Key elements aside from personal effects: Sardines, for some reason? If you've ever found something in your bag that shouldn't be there, pat yourself on the back. Receipts, wrappers, tickets just accumulate—to be honest, we're just happy there's room for our wallet and phone. We'll clean this, as soon as we meet that deadline!

The shoulder on which this rests upon: All of us. This is all of us.
