Dorm-shopping is by far one of the most fun parts of prepping for college, so here are a few thoughts every incoming freshman has while walking through the aisles of their local Target.

1. "A throw pillow for $20? What a steal!"

Honestly, throw pillows are expensive, so $20 really is a steal.

2. "How will this comforter feel when I'm laying on it and having my third emotional breakdown of the week?"

The softer the better.

3. "What kind of cleaning products do you even need in a dorm?"

Maybe some soap? Clorox? A vacuum? Who knows.

4. "How much is too much to spend on the decorations?"

The limit does not exist.

5. "Is this allowed?"

If you have to ask, the answer is probably no.

6. "And why can't I have a giant candle in my room? I'm not an idiot, I'll be careful!"

You say that until it's 2:00 a.m. and you knock it over with a water bottle.

7. "How many pictures is too many to hang on the wall? Is 50 okay?"

A wall full of memories to look at will help you on the hardest days.

8. "I totally need this blow-up bean bag chair! Where else will my friends sit?"

You have a point.

9. "Should I bring some healthy snacks or these Double Stuffed Oreos?"

You'll need both eventually.

10. "How will I ever move all of this stuff out in May?"

With God's grace and your mom's minivan.

My Spontaneous Saturday

The most fun things are the things that aren't really planned, right?

My Spontaneous Saturday

Back when I was in the second grade my class would have to write about what we did over the weekend every Monday morning in our journals. Some kids would write one sentence or maybe a paragraph, but not me. I loved to write from the start and wrote pages upon pages about every single thing I did from the time I left school on Friday all the way through Sunday night and would get mad if I forgot to include anything. I haven’t written about my weekend in a long time, but I had such a great Saturday two weekends ago that I’ve decided to write all about my day just like I did at age seven.

As I sat and had lunch with my colleagues in London, we got into a conversation about British food that I need to try before I leave. Immersed in a conversation about Sunday roasts, mashed potatoes and sausages, I almost fell off my chair when one of my colleagues looked right at me and told me to try chicken tikka masala “the national food of Britain.”
