Phelan: The stuff that's crammed in my locker
In high school, you’re given a locker to keep all your things in. The locker contains the essentials for life at school; books, folders, backpacks, spare pairs of gym shoes, crumpled pieces of paper, and now, big purses during the school day. I have to stop there between each class. Your basic locker is the most common symbol of high school, other than perhaps a migraine.
