I bought a Fossil messenger bag for when I start work next month. I was told they were high quality. Taking it out of its package revealed the most garbage thing I've ever spent hundreds of dollars on. Thin and light 'genuine leather', no padding on the strap, no padding inside the bag within the laptop section, handle stitched to the rear makes it hard to carry when loaded. Too many fashionistas recommending junk with no idea what quality looks like. But yay for free returns!
Aaaand I just got news that I passed all my final courses, and I can finally graduate! Woo!

An open mind is willing to consider new ideas, while provisionally accepting those backed by empirical evidence, and provisionally rejecting those without.
