I am currently working on an exhaustive college packing list printable, which will hopefully go out next week. But today, I thought I would do a teaser post including some items that you absolutely should or should not bring to your dorm!
what is going to be in your room first, and don’t start buying until then. For
example, if your room has a trashcan, you don’t need to bring an additional
Organizers for around your
room. Go to the dollar store and pick out lots of plastic organizers, bins,
and baskets for around your room. The key to keeping such a small space like a
dorm room clean is making sure everything has a place. Things like school
supplies, makeup, keys, random samples, etc. all need a place to live or else
your room will get chaotic.
Bath robe and shower shoes.
I know, saying you need shower shoes is kind of beaten to death at this
point. But seriously, don’t even go into the bathroom without flip flops on.
And a bath robe is just nice, so that you don’t have to walk around in a towel.
Kettle and mini fridge. Save a ton of money by making your own instant coffee or tea in the
morning. And having a mini fridge is a necessity for water, snacks, and
alcohol. I recommend getting one with a freezer!
Fan. This depends on how old your school is, but many res buildings don’t
have air conditioning.
Cleaning supplies. You’ll want a few supplies on hand to keep your room clean, namely a
duster, Windex, and Lysol wipes. However, that is basically all you will need.
You don’t need to bring your own broom and vacuum.
Batteries, extension cords,
and surge protectors. Until you get to the room,
you won’t know how your outlets are set up, so extension cords might be a
necessity. Batteries and surge protectors are just necessities.
Documents, like health and insurance information, your SIN number, and copies of
your res agreement. If you need to pick up a prescription or apply for a job,
you will need these important documents!
First aid kit. Get a pencil case or makeup bag and fill it with the first aid
essentials. Pain killers, Polysporin, Band-Aids, Midol, an Ace bandage, etc.
But just like with cleaning supplies, don’t go to crazy with things you won’t
Extra furniture and
storage, at least until you have done a room tour. I always see packing lists
saying to bring an ottoman or a beanbag chair. I disagree. Your room will
probably already be cramped, and you will end up sitting on your bed all the time anyways. When it comes to storage, most dorm rooms actually have quite a bit. Having giant Rubbermaid bins and rolling storage carts might just be a waste of space.
Microwave or hot plate. There will likely be a microwave and even a stove on your floor. A
microwave takes too much space, and a hot plate is a fire hazard in a small
room. You won’t be using them that much anyways.
Area rug, curtains, and
other large decorations. Definitely bring some
photos and small decorative items, but bringing large things like this is a
waste of space in the car, as well as money.
Iron. Some lists also recommend you bring an iron, but unless you are devoting
hours a week to laundry, you’re never going to use it. Most college students
don’t even separate whites and colours, let alone iron.
Printer. Unless for some reason you are going to be printing hundreds of pages a
week, this is not needed. You will probably end up doing readings online and a
lot of work is submitted online as well. You can get pages printed for 5 cents,
and even when you total the number of pages printed, it will probably be a lot
less than buying a printer and paying for ink refills throughout the year.
Today has been an awful day. Can you doodle something cute for me to help me feel better?
Dear sweet anon, I wanted to make you a really nice piece of art, but I’m so sleepy that I keep doing that silly lil head-bounce thing. You know the one.
So here is a sketch of a smol chibi Host to cheer you up.
I think I’m gonna make an “honorable mentions” section on the Markiplier Positivity Pieces page, because this definitely doesn’t count as one, but it’s Mark related AND positive, so, y’know. If someone was like, “I just want to hecking see some Mark stuff that makes me happy,” it’s all in one place.
I’m sleepy babbling now. Sorry, lovely.
I do hope you have a better day, and if not, I hope you have the courage to believe that better days will come.
(I’m also going to tag @markired here, because I know they love this lil cinnamon bun. The more people I can maybe make smile, the better!)
♡ Summary: It has been nearly a year since you started writing anonymous letters to Jungkook, giving him words of encouragement behind the thin mask of a paper. He never considered you as a possible suspect behind these letters, because you were nothing more than a best friend. And you couldn’t put all the blame on him either, after all, you were too afraid to confess in fear of tarnishing your precious friendship.
the way I see it, looking at DAO from the Human Noble origin, the plot of the game is a revenge story, and although you get glimpses into how other peoples live, you don’t really have a connection to that. in the endgame, Rendon Howe gets his just desserts, and Ferelden has a new human hero. ta-da.
but looking at DAO from the elven, mage, or dwarven origins, there’s more going on, to me. an elven Hero of Ferelden is the hope of their people, whether the Alienage (which can be recognised as citizens of the nation, complete with courtly representation) or the Dalish clan (which can be given lands of their own, to claim as they will, instead of being nomadic by necessity). a dwarven Hero of Ferelden is Paragon material, which in the case of Brosca can mean that their mother is given hope for the future and their sister and nephew can have a better life than they’d dreamed of. and for the mage… the prospect of an independent Circle? unheard-of in these lands. I imagine Irving had to sit down when he heard that one. the non-human origins really foster this idea of “my victory will help my people/my family/my community”, which I think is really appealing to players who watched people around them suffer for things they couldn’t change but wish they could, if only they had the power.
the fact that Human Noble is the “default” worldstate to the writers really gives me insight on what kind of story they want to tell, as opposed to the kind of stories a lot of fans want to tell.
Anonymous asked: “I really want to start writing a book that I’ve had ideas for rolling around in my mind for a while now. The only problem is I can’t find the motivation to start writing and I’m struggling with getting started. It feels like my imagination is dying!”
Starting a novel can sometimes be intimidating. It’s not physically difficult, but mentally you might face some unexpected roadblocks. I can’t say this is something I’ve ever particularly worried about, but it happens. You get in your head and psych yourself out. You love the idea you’ve been working on and feel there’s a lot riding on it when it comes to putting it on the page.
The secret to getting over this feeling: take a deep breath and remind yourself that this isn’t the first chapter, this is the first draft. No one will know what you’re writing or if you’re writing anything great. In fact, you can even tell yourself, your idea’s not perfect. It needs work still. Even say, this is just for fun. We’ll see where this goes.
There are things that are meant to happen, written in the stars and tattooed in invisible ink in the air. They’ll happen no matter which turn you take in the path of life, or how many delays are in the way. They’ll wait for you right until the end, when it’s time for a new beginning.
This was probably not one of those things.
That probably doesn’t change anything.
Harry almost missed her, didn’t see her in the large and unruly group that was walking to the last table on the restaurant, and frankly, that’d have been for the best, but then Gemma back tensed, making her look a little bit too uptight on her seat while she tried to look away from the group and smile awkwardly to the air.
At first Harry thought it was one of Gemma’s ex boyfriends, cause God knows she had a couple of awful ones, and as he looked again at the group, ready to mock the large head on this one guy she dated years ago, he felt the oh so familiar pang on his chest. It wasn’t hurtful anymore, not like the first few times he had seen her after it all went down, but still, it was hard to breathe for a couple of seconds, only able to look at the way her eyes sparkled a little bit as she laughed at something.
“Wanna go?” Gemma whispered lowly, frowning her perfectly shaped brows as she looked at her little brother.
“Nah,” He smiled sweetly at her, that smile that could end wars and probably make flowers grow on the ground. “I’m ok. Starving, though.”
Gemma decided to leave it at that, fully aware that that was probably all she was getting from him. But if she knew him well, and she did, there had to be a bitter taste in his mouth, the loud thump of his heart drumming in his ears, while the heavy feeling settled in his body and made a home out of it. It was called heartbreak and she had experienced once or twice before, although, she could never feel anything as intensely as Harry did, so that had to be hell.
The girl could probably have lived without knowing that Harry was sitting right across the restaurant, with his long legs hooked around the legs of the stool and his head hanging low as his sister leaned into him. There was no pang for her, no bitter taste or feeling in her body at the sight of the boy, but a black hole, a void that turned her into a numb doll. She would have wondered if she was still breathing, but the prickling of her eyes as she tried to look away made her sure that she was still alive. Just barely.
She had loved him, the kind of love that sets you on fire and watches you burn slowly, and then when it leaves, you can’t bear the thought to let it go, cause even if it hurts, even if the memory of it leaves you breathless from time to time, even that is better than to live without it. She still loved him, and it fucking hurt.

If you were thinking of making any environmental changes to your life this Earth Day, why not adopt veganism? If you think it’s an extreme lifestyle: is it really more extreme than the harm we cause by eating and exploiting animals?
And if you’ve ever been told you can’t go vegan (for whatever reason) click here! I’m sure there’s a solution for you.
