10 types of pencil cases we’ve all used in secondary school–which is yours

We have all owned several pencil cases throughout our schooling years. And at a time where the biggest concern in the world was what to eat at lunch or how to attract that girl from the next class, we paid quite a bit of attention to our pencil cases. Well, because it is more interesting than the teacher.

We believe that there is no official names for pencil cases, so we have no choice but to make up our own. Have you owned these pencil cases before?

The Haversack
These pencil cases are so huge, it contains everything a student will ever need. From the tiniest erasers, to staplers, hole punchers, calculators, 30cm rulers, toilet paper, lunchbox, a maid, a puppy and a bed.

At some point of time, some genius decided that pens and erasers are very fragile things and created a pencil tin that is so hard it can be used as a weapon against bullies.

We used to envy the cool kids who owned one of these. These pencil cases are the most elaborate, the most complicated and also unfortunately the most expensive. They come with multiple compartments, slots for pens, an eraser compartment and a built in sharpener. It was so neat and orderly, it’s like the full combat gear that the soldiers use. And if there is 4 slots for pens, we MADE SURE we have 4 pens to fill them up.

There are some who owned pencil cases so slim it can only hold a few pencils and probably a ruler. Nothing else. And they think they are cool, but we think they are stupid. How are they going to hide their phones in their pencil cases in class?

Convenient because we need one anyway when it comes to exams where we are required to use transparent cases. But we still find it stupid. Because, how are they going to hide their phones in their pencil cases in class?

The Cute

Do you have a friend who’s always smiling? Watch this video and you’ll know why he or she is always so happy:

Some of the girls used to own pencil cases that look so cute, even the boys wanted one of them. But they will never admit because the level of cuteness of the pencil case directly correlates to the level of girlyness of the owner.

The zip frenzy

There was a time where this pencil case was the hottest thing in town. Smart too, because this pencil case literally has nine lives. When one zip spoil, just use the next one!

The Mature (or Manure)
Then there are some who like to pretend to be mature kids, who used down to earth, no cartoony nonsense kind of pencil cases. The plain black or gray or brown one.

The Funny

Some people own pencil cases that have such funny printing on them, school was made a hell lot easier. My favorite one was the one with “Bang head here for stress relieve”.

The Commando
They don’t need no shitty pencil cases. All they need is a pen in their pockets.
