11 Food Items I Have In My Dorm Room And You Probably Do Too

Turns out it's not "Skinny Pop" if you eat the entire bag in one sitting... Who knew?

11 Food Items I Have In My Dorm Room And You Probably Do Too

College is a very interesting time. You're out of the house and probably without access to a kitchen. Thanks to the 24-hour CVS next to campus and a complete lack of self control, I have quite the assortment of less than healthy snacks in my room. Needless to say, my snack drawer is filled with enough preservatives that this stuff will be good until at least graduation.

1. Valentine's chocolates I bought on clearance at CVS on February 15th my adorable boyfriend got me.

Isn't he the greatest?

2. One lone granola bar.

My first semester, I lived on granola bars. I'm not kidding; my room actually was the Nature Valley. All I have to say on this matter now is that crumbs became my third roommate.

3. A can of Pringles with literally one Pringle in it.


4. A bag of Cheez-Its.

Do not let the re-sealable container fool you:at this point this bag contains zero Cheez-Its and is actually a sad container of orange dust which you will attempt to eat anyways.

5. Coffee Pods.

Not really a food, but vital for survival, so I thought they deserved a spot on this list. DISCLAIMER: please do not eat these pods.

6. Oatmeal.

I'm going to be honest; I saw pumpkin spice flavored oatmeal packets on sale the other day at Target and COULD NOT BE TAMED. I looked like I was at Best Buy during Black Friday, but instead of my car being filled with half-price electronics and the blood of whoever got in my way, it was filled with instant oatmeal.

7. Grapes.

Okay, okay, "wine."

8. Peanut butter.

At home, it's just a topping for your sandwich. In college, it's a way of life.

9. Popcorn.

Turns out it's not "Skinny Pop" if you eat the entire bag in one sitting... Who knew?

10. Cheese Sticks.

Actually just the empty package in the fridge. These things are the dorm food equivalent of gold. The pack of eight was legitimately gone in a single day. No cheese was safe.

11. Ramen Noodles.

These came in a care package from my high school during my first semester. I have neither the stove nor the willpower to make this expired block of sodium, but having Ramen in my dorm room does make me feel ~so college~

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
