Things Not To Bring
I think one of the things I was most excited about for college was my room, which in hindsight reveals that I didn't exactly grasp what college was supposed to be, but I digress. I wanted to both create my own space but at the same time create an exact replica of my room at home. I brought everything. E v e r y t h i n g. And I used maybe a third of it. The only time I touched the rest of it was moving it into my room and then moving it back out at the end of the year. I thought I'd have it down by the time I was a sophomore, but even this year I found a few rather bulky things gathering dust. In order to relieve you of the burden of cramming all your earthly possessions into one car, forcing you to be cheek-to-cheek with your sister for an eight-hour ride, I've made a short video detailing some of the more common and useless things I've seen sneaking their way into people's rooms.
