If You Still Don't Have These 8 Things In Your College Room, You're Doing It Wrong

If You Still Don't Have These 8 Things In Your College Room, You're Doing It Wrong

Take it from a senior living in a residence hall, I know what I'm talking about.

If this is your first semester or if this is your last, there are some things every college student should have in their room. Granted, some things are more of a convenience than a necessity, but, come on, you only live once, right?

1. Bluetooth speaker

Whether it's jamming to some study tunes, kicking it back with some chill beats on a Saturday night, or trying to block out the noisy roommates down the hall, a Bluetooth speaker is a key piece of every good residence hall experience. You'll thank me later.

2. String lights

The easiest way to turn those glum room walls into your personal paradise is to hang string lights all around! If you are feeling particularly creative, adding some lights and print-out photos to an open wall creates the cutest memory board. Make sure to hang these below the sprinkler system if your hall has them!

3. Cute pillow(s)

Nothing makes your mostly-unmade bed look better than a cute throw pillow. Who cares if your comforter is crooked and falling off your mattress — you've got adorable pillows! Plus, they can be great to lay on when studying or watching movies in bed.

4. A fuzzy blanket

Nothing screams "college" like cuddling up in a soft blanket and procrastinating your homework. Whether it's for watching movies, wrapping up in while studying for that 8 AM exam, or just unwinding after a long day, a fuzzy blanket makes everything better.

5. Essential oil diffuser

Most residence halls don't allow candles or wax melters, but essential oil diffusers can be even better for you and for making your room smell great. You can even use certain oils when you aren't feeling well to help you get better sooner!

6. Reusable water bottle

Now, this is more of a college tip in general, but it is still extremely important. I find that when I buy a new reusable water bottle, I drink more water. Stay hydrated and reduce your eco-footprint by skipping the single-use plastic bottles.

7. Closet organizers

One of the hardest parts about moving into a college room is the closet space (or lack thereof). Go for practical. An over-the-door shoe rack, hanging cubby, multi shirt hanger, or jewelry pouch can maximize your space without forcing you to get rid of half your wardrobe.

8. Power Strip

I'm not talking about dinky little extension cords, no no, I'm talking power stips. These babies have saved me every semester of my college career. Many residence halls require them since they have surge protectors. Turn one outlet into five or more (some even have USB ports).

A Beautiful Day-A Poem

This is my first entry and I didn't know what to name this buuuttttt...here it is.

Sitting outside in the shade of a tree

I look up to the sky, and the sky's all I see


The sky is so clear I could almost see through it

No clouds to be found, just infinite blue


The cool breeze blowing fills up my lungs

It's so crisp and clear that I can't help but smile


I can hear the birds singing and the leaves as they play

A leaf flutters by me as a butterfly may


I sigh to myself as I stilly observe

The current state of nature in its imperfect world


The sweet state of bliss that engulfs me right now

Is a pleasant relief from the chaos I know


I know it won't last and the storms may soon come

But I'll still enjoy this sweet, sweet respite


For deep down I know, though the rain may pour hard,

The storms may last long, and floods might ensue


In the end, the sun always comes out to shine

And no matter the damage

Life will always begin anew
