This is to those 40 tea packets sitting at the bottom of my snack bin right now.
Don't think we don't appreciate the thought, but maybe something we could enjoy a little more? Yes, tea is known to reduce stress, and there is an abundance of that going around, but maybe add something a little extra? Just to be safe, here are a few ideas:
1. Soft Kleenex
Living in the dorms with sick season upon us is a dangerous game. Please send the highest quality Walmart tissues you can find!
2. Microwaveable foods!
... that don't dirty any dishes or require a bowl. Mac and cheese in their bowls, ravioli, oatmeal. Almost anything that comes in the container it can be microwaved in.
Sometimes we have multiple assignments due at the same time and procrastination is hitting hard. Trust us, this won't go to waste.
4. Holiday decorations
I want our dorm to look cute and festive, but decorations are a little expensive on a college budget. Mirror stickies are always a win in 308!
5. Fuzzy socks
We probably do not have any more space in our dorm, especially for socks, but I'll always find room for another pair of socks that'll brighten my day and warm my feet.
6. A handwritten note
I love a random I love you text, but there is just something special about a person's handwriting especially when you don't see them on the daily anymore.
If I thought high school was stressful, I really had no idea what was coming for me in college. Chocolate will help! Bonus points if its Ghirardelli caramel filled squares.
8. Gift cards or cash money
As impersonal as this is, it is SO appreciated in college where finding time to work can be a pain and late night pizza shuttle delivery always sounds like a good idea.
