Because your dorm is your home away from home, it’s nice to make it a place that feels like a home. In my dorm room tour post (here), I snapped shots of my side of the room and showed how I made it my own (which has actually changed quite a bit this semester).
In case you didn’t know, I live for comfy blankets and random plants. If I had the space, I would probably fill the entire room with indoor plants, putting them on just about every surface near the window.
Hey, just another thing to look forward to in an apartment – a little more room for plants and pets yes. In my current school room, however, there a few things I couldn’t survive without.
I went through a million packing lists before I came to college. Most of them were way too extensive, which makes it hard to decide exactly what you need to bring. But, throughout the semester, I discovered you really don’t need to bring a million things to school. Besides essentials like bedding and bathroom gear, here are 5 things I found extremely helpful my first semester.
My oh my, I would never get anything done without my planner. Even on days where I don’t have tons to do, I’m terrified I’m forgetting SOMETHING.
I found this planner on Amazon and love, love, love it.
A secret santa from school got me this adorable avocado notebook (EEK can’t get over it) which has become my new to do list book.
I have lists for school-related activities, novel work, goals, and even some recipes. Especially if I have lots of little tasks, I can’t make myself crawl out of bed and start without seeing what needs to be done for the day.
Blankets and sweatshirts and socks. The rooms here are freezing. I ended up lugging two more blankets from home because it gets so freezing if it’s even a little bit warm outside. Somehow the classrooms are hot though?
Earl grey tea + french vanilla creamer = the perfect go-to breakfast drink. Or hey, hot chocolate works too. Especially with how cool it’s been the last couple months.
I LOVE mugs. I may not have that many, but I overuse the ones I have. This one is one of my favorites…
Not technically a thing but, hey, it works! I love the classes, but honestly not many people are happy just sitting around and only doing school.
To name a few hobbies I’ve tried to keep up with this past semester:
So there you have it: my 5 biggest items. A quick, little post this week.
