I often hear that the modern college student looks less like an actual college student, and more like the laptop they are huddled behind. It makes sense, then, that they would like for that laptop, specifically the back of it, to be representative of them and their personality. As it seems, the best way to go about doing this is through stickers—lots of them.
I was not aware of the importance of such stickers before arriving at Delaware, but as soon as I started classes, they became hard to ignore. I found myself face to face with decorated laptops in every classroom, lounge, or corner of the library. Each day I am bombarded by people’s interests, organizations, favorite memes, and hometowns, without having to speak a word to them. After talking to my roommate, whose laptop is covered in an aesthetically pleasing selection of environmentally progressive stickers, I found out that for about $3.00 a piece, I could do the same.
