9 Items Every College Student Needs: 2020 Edition

This is no secret: the first two weeks of college are like no other time in your life, especially now when everyone is inside. With all the time indoors, making your new room feel like home is super important, as well as staying organized. Some not-so-obvious essentials will turn your year from normal to spectacular. Here's a list of what you may have forgotten to create your mini paradise.

Sleep Mask

The sun feels way more bright when you're trying to sleep. Cover your eyes and sleep forever. Sleep is essential, after all.

Ear Plugs

With soft ear plugs, you can block out any noise, from roommates, music, or random sounds because someone decided to mow the lawn on Saturday morning.

Diffuser

There are so many benefits to a diffuser. If you're going to school in a dry area, a diffuser can put some moisture back in the air. The main draw is getting a diffuser and essential oils and have your room smell like a fresh rose garden all the time.

Soft Lights

This is even more important if you live in a dorm. Fluorescent lights are awful and put a damper on any cute room. Trust me, you'll feel better with your non-blinding lights on.

Backrest Pillow

There will be a time where you have some homework to do but you just cannot sit at your desk for laziness reasons. Sit up with your back rest pillow in your bed and be both lazy and productive.

Step Stool

It's just a multipurpose item that is very much overlooked. Dorm beds are taller than you expect, if you're on the shorter side, you will need one.

Daily Planner

There are endless opportunities in college, and even more papers to write. Keeping track of everything going on is important!

Multicolored Pens

This goes along perfectly with the daily planner. Using different colors in planning or just regular note-taking helps you remember different ideas or tasks and helps with organization.

More Storage Containers

During your time in college, you will just naturally collect more stuff, like shirts and more. Of course, you need a place to put all of your new college gear.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
