Packing for College: I

So there's just about a week left until move-in day and orientation at SMC! That being said, I feel very unprepared.

See, I have been in America for just over 3 weeks now (since my return from a year abroad in Poland), and most of that time has been devoted to visiting with friends I haven't seen in a while, unpacking all my stuff from the move (did I mention that my family moved to a new house while I was gone?) AND from my exchange, adjusting to a new town and re-adjusting to America. So since so much unpacking and other nonsense has been going on, RE-packing for college has been kinda low on my to-do list.

And since I'm in the topic of packing for college, am I the only one who thinks that advertising for back-to-school directed at college students is kind of excessive? My sister has explained to me that the beds in college are shaped differently than "normal" beds, so, whatever, I have to buy sheets, but whattup with all the other junk?

In my opinion, it's just a bunch of stuff to be bought, and I don't think I need it. So, my goal for the next few days of VERY last-minute school shopping is to avoid school shopping... as much as possible (cause I guess you really do need to buy new sheets).

Wish me luck; we'll see how this goes!

  1. Everybody's been repeating to me that all college beds are twin-sized, whatever that means ;)
