My recommendations: Your favourite pencils Erasers Pencil Sharpener At least one blue and one black pen Loose leaf and a binder (and a hole punch that goes in the binder) Exercise books (make sure you have one for each subject, or enough multi subject books to cover it) Ruler (long one) Scissors and glue (not necessary but useful) Whatever you like colouring with (pencils, crayons, etc) Sharpies or markers Highlighters Math set (with a protractor and compass) Graph paper just in case (this can be used over multiple years) Calculator if permitted Bookbag, lunch bag, pencil case Index cards USB Drive (if your school uses technology) Folders, either duotang or pocket Hand sanitizer  Weekly planner for homework Any locker accessories needed including lock, mirror, etc

Blank page I am like the blank useless page at the back of a book, hiding behind all that's meaningful, waiting to be ripped out and misused, the page that has no meaning, the page that gets burnt and drawn on, used as a thing to pass the time by, as in itself is useless, simply a mistake. you see the only thing in which this page has to provide to this world is of a story, showing sadness and disappointment, hatred and regret. all things come to an end, this page merely fades slowly as it burns with its pain and sorrow, until that page has departed. overall the "book" is better off without the useless blank pages, like me.
