So my poor Sonic X messenger bag seems to have died a sad death at my friend's house on Thursday. It developed a hole and starting shedding its inner material all over her chair and floor. It was a good thing we were in the kitchen with its hardwood floor, instead of downstairs with the carpet. I was able to get it all up and she gave me a large plastic bag to put my bag in so it wouldn't shed some more.

Obviously I need another bag. I'd prefer to have a character bag (Turtles or Ponies or Sailor Moon or Hello Kitty), but all the ones I like online seem to have so many bad reviews about poor quality that I hesitate to get any of them. And around here, there aren't any bags with characters on them. If I'm going to spend money on a bag, I'd really like it to be a character bag. Yet at the same time, I think it's better to examine a bag in person before getting it.

I need a big bag, too, preferably with lots of pockets and pouches to hold my stuff. And I like if it's big enough for standard notebook paper, since there are rare occasions where I still write on it while out and about. Messenger bags are the perfect size for me. Totes generally only have one compartment and no way to close them, but if I found one I liked with a zipper and at least two compartments, I'd be willing to consider it. I don't really want a backpack because it seems like it'd be easier for a pickpocket to grab something if it's on my back. Plus, I'd have to keep sliding it up and down to access it. A regular shoulder bag is much better suited to me. Large purses are also an option.

I really wish the only official Pony messenger bag had the main characters on it. I like Zecora, but it seemed an odd choice to put a recurring character and no one else on the sole Pony messenger bag.

At the moment I moved my essentials other than my standard notebook to a red purse I have. It's an alright size for temporary use, but I really need something bigger long-term. I wish the strap hadn't broke on a black bag I was using before I started with the messenger bag several years ago. The way it broke, there's no way to reattach it. It's really frustrating, because the bag itself is fine and could still be used.

I've also considered taping up the hole in my Sonic X bag with duct tape, but that would only be a temporary fix too. It sheds in my money compartment and other places are starting to rip, so it should probably retire.
