College Dorm Essentials That They Don't Tell You About

Batteries. You will need batteries.

College Dorm Essentials That They Don't Tell You About

I just moved into my dorm for my freshman year at the College of Charleston, and there were a few things that I forgot I might have needed. Here are just a few.

1. Batteries

Trust me. You are going to need batteries for more things than you might think.

2. Toilet Cleaner

Yeah you're probably thinking ew gross, but if you have your own bathroom in the dorm, you are responsible for cleaning it. Trust me you'll want this.

3. Lots of trash bags.

When you're moving in, taking things out of boxes and plastic wrap can get to be a little messy. Make sure you brought a lot of space to store that trash.

4. Extra storage containers

You're going to need more than you think trust me.

5. Command strips

Be sure to buy extra of these if you want to hang lots of stuff up on your walls.

6. Hangers

Definitely needed more than I thought.

Be prepared when you move into your dorm. There are quite a few things you will not expect that you need, trust me.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
