School could be a less than fun experience sometimes, and it was always worse whenever someone in your class had much better supplies than you did. While we were stuck with pens our parents took from hotels, or pencils that had been worn down to a nub, all the rich kids got to have these 10 items that made us feel like we were lame.
Man, remember white-out? I just had to scratch out my mistakes with pen.
Even more fancy were those white-out rollers that you could use to cover up entire lines (or in the case of the rich kids, write things on your binders).
How about those "reinforcements" that you could use to fix ripped holes on pages?
Gel pens were super colorful, and super expensive.
These next few things were the Mercedes Benz of school supplies...
White erasers were so, SO much better than those terrible pink ones.
We all looked in envy at that rich kid whose calculator was super fancy and could write letters.
Five Star binders cost like three times as much, but at least they didn't fall apart after like three days.
Seriously, who had the kind of money to spend on zip-up binders?!
Remember the first time you saw a mechanical pencil? I would dream of never having to sharpen a pencil again.
So, here's a little secret about me: I used to love back-to-school season.

Graduating seniors celebrate by getting all dressed up and dancing the night away with their peers for the last time.It's a night to remember, which is why dozens of photos are taken at prom. But I'm sure there are some celebrities who wish their prom photos were never leaked online. If you thought your prom photos were awkward, you've seen nothing yet...1.

Going to elementary school is something that we all had to do, but we all had different experiences. Socially, elementary school was a battlefield. It was exhausting and more dramatic than it needed to be, but at least we all grew up before the internet was a thing. Nowadays kids have to deal with their bullies following them home, at least virtually, and never getting a chance to be alone. Even if it's from their friends, kids should have some time to themselves, right? Disney ChannelWell, when we grew up in the 90s, times were just a lot simpler. Who
Being in school 5 days a week is kind of like having a full time job, only instead of getting paid in money, you have to sit there and learn.
