Today is the official 1 week countdown until I move out! You might have seen the college countdown videos on YouTube where people have a certain task they do each day of the countdown. I am going to be doing that but in blog form instead of video. So today is all about the packing lists, figuring out what I still need to get.
For the most part, Im packed. Im an overachiever in that regard because I obsessively make lists for everything and like to get things done in advance instead of putting them off last minute. I know that if I put off packing, I would end up forgetting something important. Back in February, some friends and I were going on a road trip to Tennessee. I put off packing until last minute because of the hectic week I was having. Let’s just say, I didn’t realize I had forgotten to pack underwear until I was at school (we were leaving school early that day so thankfully my angel of a mother brought me some before we left).
I don’t think forgetting something like underwear while packing for school would be a good idea. Thus, Im packing in advance.
Here’s a preview of the crazy organization Ive been working on recently while trying to figure out what to pack and what stays behind. The good thing about packing now, I can leave some things behind knowing that if I get on campus and realize I need them, my parents can bring them up Parents Weekend or ship them to me (or I can just wait it out until Thanksgiving break).
Here is the list of things I still need to get (from a list off the internet):
-dish scrubber and soap
-adhesive Command hooks
As you can see the list isn’t really that bad, its mainly cleaning stuff. I don’t know if I’ll actually end up getting a printer (at least maybe not for my first semester, I might ask for one for Christmas if I decide I want one later on). So I am actually going out today to try to get the rest of these things and cross them off the list!
