Everyone has a few things that is so dear to them, so dear to them that they can’t leave home without these things. I have put together a list of the top five things I can barely leave home without.
By this I mean my phone, as it is the only gadget I have for now. I use currently use my phone for basically everything I’m do online, also I use my phone to take pictures, for creating both visual and written content. Also my laptop got bad last year, so I’m left with my phone to blog, it’s a lot more stressful but there’s nothing I can do about it right now and I’m trying to not let that get in the way. I also use my phone to listen to music and podcasts for motivation and to keep my mood in place, watch movies or play games to ease out stress, keep up with my social media. Need more reasons why I can’t afford to leave home without my phone?
2. Hands-free (Earpiece)
Like I said earlier, I like to listen to music and podcasts, depending on my mood. It helps to keep my energy up and my mood in place. I practically just feel a whole lot better plugged in, I don’t know if anybody else feels like that too. There’s a lot of drama here in Lagos, I feel like it is much-needed to distract myself from any unnecessary drama.
3. A pair of glasses
Although I only have about 3 pairs of glasses, you will always find one in my bag, especially sunglasses. It’s a perfect accessory to instantly add glam to one’s outfit and aside from that, it protects your eyes from dust, sun and all. I didn’t really much appreciate sun glasses or glasses until I contacted conjunctivitis (popularly known as apollo in Nigeria), since then I swore to always carry along my glasses.
4. A notepad & pen
As a creative and content creator, amazing ideas comes to mind at oddest hours and sometimes these ideas don’t stay long, that means you could forget them, the best place to keep track of these ideas is a journal or notepad. I keep a notepad with me wherever I go, so that the moment an idea pops into my head, I can pen it down and not forget or stress my brain in the process of trying not to forget. I also use digital notepads sometimes, but I prefer the physical notepads because it gives a lot of freedom and room for creativity when writing, for instance you can highlight or illustrate to lay emphasis on certain things.
5. Debit card (ATM)
I’m a type of person who prefers to carry only the estimated cash necessary at hand, I do this to avoid any form of impulse buying (I used to do a lot of impulse buying until I learnt lessons, now I think twice before buying anything).
But I like to keep my debit card handy just in case of any emergency, because I don’t like being stranded too.
From number one and two on this list, you can tell that I use my phone very often, and doing all or even some of that consumes my battery. Since my battery power isn’t so reliable, so depending on where I’m going, how long I intend to stay, and the things I intend to do with my phone, you would most likely catch me with my power bank, because I don’t like running out of battery power when I need to do something on my phone.
Over to you . . . .
Can you relate to any of the things listed above? What are the five things you can’t leave home without? Share with me, I’d love to know yours.
With Love, Lydia.
