9 Essentials That College Students Would Be Utterly Lost Without
Apollo Media

Being a college student, there are going to be days where you'll get little to no meals. Most likely because your schedule doesn't allow it. Or the hour break in between your classes just isn't worth going to the other side of the campus for food so you choose to sit in your room until its time to leave for your next class. You'll need many things to get through your year, like caffeine. Caffeine is a must.

1. Access to large quantities of caffeine.

For many of you, your day most likely doesn't start unless you have a jumpstart in the morning. Trust me, that expensive coffee pot, is worth it in the end. You're going to need that caffeine the morning to wake you up and get you through your day. It really is a blessing.

2. Lunchables.

Personally, I have to have my Lunchables for those short in between breaks when you don't want to run to convo. My entire fridge is stocked with Lunchables for situations like that. I split the cost with my roommate and we take turns restocking our dwindling supply of heaven. ps, pizza is the best.

3. A system of organization that works.

Trust me, you'll regret it if you don't have some semblance of organization. Especially when those deadlines roll around and you have no idea what you did with your paper. Buy a planner, it helps.

4. Vending Machines. USE THEM.

I know you're hungry, you don't need to lie to me. I know your hectic schedule doesn't allow for many meals and you're probably starving. Vending machines are a life saver when you're dying of starvation and you can't find the will to live. Spend that 50 cents, you'll thank me and yourself later.

5. Band-Aids.

Honey, let's face it. You aren't indestructible. You are going to get cut and you're going to bleed. Its just a fact of life, and you're going to regret not having that flimsy little blood stopper. So buy some.

6. NyQuil.

You're going to love NyQuil when the sickness around campus finally makes its way to you. I don't know about you, but NyQuil puts me out like a light and its God's gift from heaven when not even chicken noodle soup is working anymore.

7. Friends.

Trust me, you don't want to be holed up in your dorm every day while everyone else is out having fun. Go out, make friends. Don't stay in all the time and feel left out. Keep your door open, people will pop in to chat. That's a one-way ticket on the train we call depression and dropping out.

8. Multiple (loud) Alarms.

We've all been late once or twice. Or we've just been too tired to get out of bed in the morning. You're going to need motivation and multiple alarms if you want to get to your classes on time. Morning classes are Satan reincarnated, but you're going to have to pull through. You're paying for your education, don't waste $200 because your bed is warm and you missed your alarm.

9. Netflix.

Forget Netflix and Chill, you're going to need Netflix and late night snacks. Coursework is going to get to you and you're going to need a way to just sit and calm down and relieve stress. Catching up on your favorite shows is a way to do that.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
