Carrying my heavy backpack all over school makes my shoulder blades hurt after awhile. Would getting a bigger backpack help?

Try lightening the load by keeping some of your books in your locker instead of carrying them around all day. Also, if you put both the straps of the backpack over your shoulders and cinch them snugly, the weight will be more evenly distributed and carried closer to your core, which makes your muscles work less hard.

No, it would be worse. You need to use both shoulders and your hip to brace the backpack.

Is your bookbag messenger style or a normal two-strap?

Normal two-strap.

Then I would suggest maybe carrying some books instead of putting them all in your backpack.

and then the next day, the teachers decide to give you NOOOO homework. which is nice, but they could've spread it out... *sigh*

Or, they don't even check the homework you stayed up all nigh working on. That happened to me today. I stayed up all until 2:30 to finish the first part of a project that was due and some people in the class didn't even have theirs done. The teacher told them not to worry about it, because we still needed to do the second part of the project and it wasn't due. I also worked on my long math homework, and realized I didn't even have that class today when I got to school.

No, making backpack lighter would help. Maybe a more supportive backpack, too.
