Going to college is an emotional time for both students and parents. For students, it signifies a time of sudden growth, and for parents, well, saying that they are struggling to let go of their little ones is an understatement. All in all, one thing can get you in the right mood, which is knowing what to take with you.
You have just been accepted into college, the stress of having written several essays to several schools has worn off, and you are currently in a state of euphoria because you are finally going off to live on your own in college. Your parents are proud of you for choosing to further your education and your mother has all of a sudden become emotional because you are leaving her nest. All these things happen pretty quickly and before you know it, it’s summer and you have to begin preparing to leave. There is no easy way to leave home, especially if you were attached to your parents. However, for a few people, college is an excellent opportunity to set up their wings to fly. The endless possibilities that await them beckon to them. Life could not be better and more enjoyable.
Preparing for this next phase in your life requires more than just the the psychological shift in your mind that you need to get ready. You also need to prepare financially to be responsible for money and materially to get what you need in order to go. Compiling the list of what you need for your first year in college can be interesting because it seems as if you are moving out of home, yet you do not have a big enough place to carry all your goodies from when you were eleven. Choosing what to take and what to leave behind becomes one of the most difficult things to do because the chances are, the next time you come back, you will have no need for what you left behind. Therefore, leaving then this one time probably means leaving them forever, and you’ve got to move on.
Choosing what to take and what to leave behind can be daunting, especially since you might have to part with these things forever. In addition to what you already have, you might need to get other things to help cushion and prepare you for your life alone. It will be as if you are moving to start life on your own so you do need a few essentials to get you going.
Some people wait until they are at college to start buying things they need however, in order for your first night not to resemble that of a homeless person, your bag should carry more than a few essentials so that once you get there, you do have what you need.
Before you start packing though, there are some things you need to be sure of.
Everything you need to carry can be divided into large blocks. These are things you need for everyday life, so pack like you are setting up a home.
Now breaking up the list, there are different things you should take under each broad area.
Get a great colored bedsheet with enough covers in case you need to change them. Carry along slippers, a carpet if the room is not carpeted and add a few touches of individuality to it. Do not forget your blankets and pillows, night light, reading light and things to make yourself comfortable.
When packing for school, have a checklist so that you would know what you have packed and what is left behind. That way, you will never be overwhelmed when it comes to packing for college. Cheers to an exciting new year!
