I love stepping out from working all day into the moon light and warm air. However, while driving home the other night I soon heard pattering on my windshield. Could it be raining? As I looked closer I realized that I hadn’t been totally oblivious as I walked to my car that evening. The noise I was hearing was the splattering of bugs across my windshield; the marks they left behind reminding me of only one thing; summer is definitely here.
Along with Summer’s arrival comes lots of other things as well: graduation, travel, relaxation and of course preparations for college! As the time gets closer and closer, more and more lists will be made with everyone trying to make the perfect packing list so that they forget nothing but still have enough space to move around. Let’s not forget all the coordinating that comes with having a roommate so that there are no doubles of anything! Also, we can’t forget the actual school supplies because I know the main thing on your mind at the moment is solely about your room. So, as nice as I am, I have written one out for you making it so that you can print it off and check the boxes as you go.
The whole process of moving away from home for the first time and onto a campus with tons of other people can be both thrilling and completely nerve wracking. Just remember, you will make it, you won’t die of stress overload (I mean you made it through High School right?) and moving into your new space completely prepared and ready to face your new life is going to be an amazing feeling. So this is where my handy-dandy list comes in-I hope it can effectively take some of the weight off of your shoulders and remind you that summer should be spent having fun and getting dangerously tan (or for those fair skinned people out there like me, dangerously red).

Bring just enough for what you will need and don’t overdo it because space is limited! Even if you are not generally a very organized person, try to give everything a place and set it up well so that you have a better hope of not creating Mount Trashmore in your room! Remember, you are going to be living in that tiny space for the next year so make it as comfortable as you can; you won’t regret spending the extra time on it, I promise!
