No scene between two people in the history of television or cinema has or will ever be as pure, tender, organic and raw as the scenes shared by Colin Morgan and Bradley James in that last episode of BBC’s Merlin.

Sorry for the major delay in posting this from when I said I would, but my ultimate college packing list is here! The bulk of this post is the printable itself, but I will include a few pieces of information here. I have included a bit of a preview above, but the actual document is 8 pages.
The document is a packing list, but I have also included some bonus information. I have notes about why I chose to include something or additional info written in green, and I have items that you shouldn’t bring written in red. Also, items that I think are extra important to bring are annotated with a pink star next to them!
If you want more information/details about what I think you should and shouldn’t bring, check out this post!
see like, i know i complain a lot about how sapphic tumblr treats bi women and i think the reason for that is just? the support for bi women on a lot of sapphic blogs seems really….superficial. i’ve seen so many bloggers who do things like yell at bi women for headcanoning an ambiguous wlw character as bi or try to dictate when and how bi women can participate in their own culture and community, then make a “bi girls are cute and valid! uwu” post five minutes later and act like this means they can’t be biphobic. and it’s really exhausting to be supported on the surface level just for show but not ever backed up or defended when it really counts. and i’m not saying all sapphic blogs or bloggers are like this at all, i’ve met some really wonderful people and seen some amazing blogs in that community, it’s just a trend i’ve seen a LOT in sapphic circles and it’s really painful and alienating as a bi women
Once I was struck by a car in the street. I was walking. And for maybe two seconds I had the impression that I was dying and it was really a very, very intense pleasure. The weather was wonderful. It was seven o'clock during the summer. The sun was descending. The sky was very wonderful and blue and so on. It was, it still is now, one of my best memories.[…] I’m not able to give myself and others those middle-range pleasures that make up everyday life. Such pleasures are nothing for me, and I am not able to organize my life in order to make place for them. That’s the reason why I’m not a social being, why I’m not really a cultural being, why I’m so boring in my everyday life. It’s a bore to live with me.
Michel Foucault, An Interview by Stephen Riggins
Welp this is my desk at UCLA. It’s really small and cluttered sometimes; I think it’s really cute though but I just wish a little more light could shine on it.
My ochem professor is the cutest little lady! Today was a nice Friday. I walked out to Westwood alone but met with study buddy after his volunteer time at the hospital, and then we played tennis for a really long time. He actually finished homework before me it’s quite shocking Σ(‘◉⌓◉’)
I finally got around to taking ‘what’s in my school bag’ photos *slow clap*
So, without further ado, this is what is in my (very large, very heavy) school bag on a typical class followed by studying at the library day:
Binder: the binder I carry depends on the day, but this past week it’s been my MUN binder with all the study guides, ROPs and guidelines for the upcoming conference. On other days, I carry binders of class slides or notes.
Notebook: this is a (very cheap) 5 subject notebook I use to make notes in class for 5 of the 8 modules I’m taking this semester. I decided to use a multi subject notebook since 5 of my classes are concentrated in just 2 days. This way, I only need to carry one notebook and don’t risk losing half my loose leaf notes by the end of the semester. For the rest of my modules, I use either a single subject notebook or binder.
Folder: I always keep a folder in my bag for any handouts, loose leaf notes etc. I might need to carry
Laptop: almost every time I go to the library, I have to have my laptop. I use it to make notes, research, listen to music, access pdf versions of my textbooks etc. I keep my laptop in a snap-on case from eBay and a sleeve by CaseLogic.
Βullet journal: pretty self explanatory. I carry my journal everywhere.
Wallet: also self explanatory. Always need to have some cash on me! My wallet is from Stradivarius.
Pencil pouch: this is my necessities pencil pouch. I keep basic blue and black pens, a couple of coloured pens, a couple of pencils and a set of skinny highlighters. I carry this pencil pouch everyday, and only if I’m going to the library I might carry extra pens/highlighters (see No9)
Make-up pouch: this is my makeup/necessities pouch. I keep things like lip balm, hand sanitiser, bobby pins, hair ties, lipstick, wipes etc. It looks small but there is a lot in this (seriously, I could make a separate post on all the things in this). This pouch is glittery silver and it’s from Shiseido.
Stabilo .88 mini set: this is a set of stabilo fineliners I got at the supermarket. They’re very small, compact and neatly organized so if I know I’ll be making notes I will carry these alongside my pencil pouch.
Sunglasses: self explanatory. My sunglasses are by Rayban and they are the wayfarer design.
ID/cards holder: this is a little notebook style card holder where I keep my ID, student ID, debit card, bus pass, metro card, membership cards etc. This this is a lifesaver - in case I loose my waller or it is stolen it saves me the trouble of re-issuing all of my cards.
Headphones +iPod: self explanatory. My iPod is not pictured cause I was using it to take pictures.
Phone: also self explanatory. My phone is a Nokia Lumia 930.
Not pictured: travel mug: I cannot live without coffee so my mug goes with me everywhere.
That’s it! This is what I carry with me to uni 99% of the time. I realise this looks like a lot - and it is. But I spend long hours at school and the library, as I can never get work done at home. Luckily, I live close to university, so I only commute for 15-30′ one way - less than an hour total. However, my bags are getting increasingly heavy so I am considering a backpack. So far, I am thinking of getting the Jansport Right Pack. Let me know what you think if you’ve used it - or any similar backpacks :)
Kuroo: Kenma you finally made it to college. You better enjoy freshman week. It’s your one big chance to get social and make a ton of frie- Kenma: Seeya *running away* Kuroo: Wait, no, don’t run away, they have free snacks and stuff Kenma: *slowly approaching back* Kuroo: And beer and hot babes Kenma: YEET *continues running away*
Suga: This whole college thing is pretty comfy. I’ve never been so organized in my entire life. Daichi: I think that makes you the only who’s got their shit together, Sugawara Suga: It’s not hard. Today alone I finished two essays, cleaned out my dorm, hooked up with three guys at the same time, tutored a freshman Daichi: Wait what was that last part? Suga: I tutored a freshman Daichi: Ok
Noya: There’s only two ways this exam can go, so I’m pretty confident about how I’ll do. Asahi: Wow I’ve never seen you so prepared for an exam before. You must have really turned things around since high school. Noya: The first way it can go is really badly. Asahi: What’s the second? Noya: Even worse
Hinata: How did I even get in to this college Kageyama: Sports scholarship. Same way I did Hinata: No, I get that, I mean, we don’t go to the same college. How did I get here. I’m lost. Kageyama: I really wish I could answer that question but I’m pretty sure that this isn’t the college I go to either Hinata: Kageyama how did we get here Kageyama: I don’t know but I’m scared
