Can be hectic. It can also be stressful and nerve-wracking.
But there is a way to be calm, collected, and in control about it.
First you need to decide what you’re taking and what you’re leaving behind. Sometimes, the situation might call for throwing away some things as well. It’s best to do that in advance.
Then of course, the shopping. For a coffee machine, a mini-fridge, a television, a rug, and a curtain. And if you want, some posters to spruce up those white walls of your dorm room. Be prepared to spend a lot, like a lot, a lot. So much freaking money! I’m telling you!
Number three on the list is choosing your weapon of packing. Metaphorically, of course. Cardboard boxes, plastic boxes, plastic garbage bags, plastic shopping bags. People usually choose depending on their mode of transportation.
Next is choosing your path on how to get there. Plane, train, boat, car, bus, mini-van, or van? I am taking a mini-van and a car. Hopefully it can fit all my crap.
Finally it’s move-in day at college. People are bustling around with their families, big heavy boxes in everyone’s arms, and the occasional tears from every parent. Yes, you too, Dad.
You would love to unpack and have your closet look like this:
But we all know it’s going to look like this:
You make your bed, double-check that you have everything you need, say goodbye to your family, and watch them drive away.
Once the coast is clear, its partying time!!!
Haha, I’m joking. We’re joking Mom and Dad. What we really meant to say was hit the books, stay up all night studying, and ace every paper.
Cause we all know that’s what college is really for. *innocent grin*
Good luck packing everyone!
