The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So today I'm gonna be telling you guys about things that you might not have known that you need or should bring to college or bring to your new dorm. Basically a year ago, if you're like a ninja Coming freshman a year ago, I was in your shoes, and I was really I'm sure of what to bring. I looked up online times, uh, packing lists and things. I know there's, like, the basics of things that, you know you need to survive, like the things that you've been using on a daily basis at home. Then there's other things I have to do with storm life, which is different from the life you've had a holes that might not have a creature that you need, or that would be really useful. So after a year of living in these other things that I found really helpful or things that I ended up having to go get because, um, I found out that they were really useful, so hopefully that will make things easier for you guys. Because when you're in a dorm, unless you're really lucky person that has a bathroom in their dorm, most people don't. Most people have holy bathroom that they have to share with other people, right that aren't right in your room. Actually, you realize how much you use water when you don't have it. What? You're, um makeup sponges, spraying your hair. If you want this beach waves or whatever you're doing, you kind of need water a lot really often. Having candles and not lighting room is still really valuable to make your room smell super sweet and super fresh. The birthday cake candle by D. W home thes air super strong smelling candles that definitely makes the room smell super sweet, even though they're not lit. So another thing that you might not have thought about are expected to bring to college is one of these, like basic plastic tote bags that they sell like in the aisles when you're checking out a grocery stores or like J. C. Penney's or whatever, the's a really helpful? Because when you like, you'll find more often than not, that you actually like drag stuff around campus for whatever it is. If you're at the beginning of the year, I was doing a research project of research paper that I had a Thanh of books that I need to get from the library on. So having like a cheap bag to, like, put a ton of stuff in and take it wherever you take is actually really convenient. Um, you actually find more often than not that you need something like this, especially for guys that probably don't have, like, a tote bag or something that you, um, have accessible for something like that. So another thing that's more like that bring to college in general are rain booze. So I don't know, that might be obvious to other people, but it wasn't for me because I guess, like in high school, I was used to like junior and senior year. I drove to school and even if it's raining like the track from the parking lot to the school door is really short and usually the rain, whatever shoes you're wearing, the rain really doesn't ruin your day that much. When you have to be like trekking back and forth across campus, and you could be walking for 5 10 or 15 minutes walking through the rain and having your shoes soaked by the time you get there. Super not fun, because then you have to sit through a lecture or sit through your seminar with soaked socks and shoes. So I found that out really quickly, like after the first month of school. Oh my gosh, it's raining more than I expected it to. I've been having soaked socks more often than I would like you. It actually comes super and candy, so I'll just show you guys these kind of journeys. These are like cute pink Sperry rain boots that I got on Black Friday on lines under Adorable. Like guys, Can we talk about tank rain boots with the heel like E. Really? What's so? Yeah, I'll link these below if they still saw them. I also came to school without an umbrella, which that seems kind of obvious, but I guess when you're packing things like some little things might not hurt you. So remember to bring an umbrella super important So nothing is gonna pay for your dorm is under it double vacuum. So this is like, actually pretty small, like it's really compact at what makes it really convenient is that e didn't take off the handle. So it's not like I have to leave that out in the open because I have no space to put it if it's right in my drawer and it's really convenient for cleaning up your dorm whenever you need you. This might be another thing that might seem obvious, but it wasn't obvious to me. Um, bring some slippers so slippery, really helpful because, like I said, if you have a ah hall bathroom that you have to share with other people, when you go to the bathroom, you need to put something on your feet. I found myself in the beginning of the year, literally, like spending a whole minute putting like shoes on tying my sneakers or whatever tow walk to the bathroom. So get yourself some slippers or flipflops or whatever, but like something that you can usually put on your feet because you're gonna be going to the bathroom at some point. Um, it makes life way easier than putting on shoes. Um yeah, that those were some random things that might not have occurred to you to bring to college, but I really useful. I'm gonna have linked below a general list, like a general packing list of all the obvious things that you should bring to college. So if you click the link down there, you'll, um, you'll head over to that.
