The moment you’ve all been waiting for. The moment I’ve been procrastinating forever. Here you go. The list of what to bring to college. Just a little something before I begin:
One of the most important things to remember is that you don’t need to bring your life to college. You have a limited amount of space that you’re probably sharing with another person. Keep it light, keep it neat. Your life now consists of dorms, classes, dining hall, and parties. You’re going to be seeing the same people every day and doing the same thing every day. Don’t let this list influence you to buy stuff that you’re not going to use, because the main thing here is saving money and downsizing. On the other hand, you’re going to be on your own for the first time and there are probably a lot of things you usually don’t have to think about (laundry supplies, dishes, extension cords, etc).
Anyways, enjoy the list, reblog the shit out of it, and HAVE AN AWESOME TIME SHOPPING.
“I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God.”—John Green, Looking for Alaska (via mycondolences)
Hi, doll! Fellow TCU Class of 2016 classmate here. Just wanted to let you know that you have NO reason to fear. We’ll all be a family. We’ll all take care of each other. You have my word. (And PS, I admit, I sometimes feel terrified too!)
I am really sorry that I have messed up so much. I have to be honest with you: I have grown up struggling with an addiction to pornography. It has left me with a perverted perception of sex. And now I think of it as something dirty. But God is working on me and He is restoring my innocence and revealing to me through scripture and Godly counsel how beautiful it can and will be when it is with you.
But I’m also really, really excited. After talking to a couple people, especially one girl, I’m already finding people who are a lot like me, and that’s something I haven’t experienced in a long time. That’s not to say that I don’t have a lot in common with the people at my school, but … I don’t know how to explain it. I just feel a little bit like an outsider, even at school, and these people are making me feel like I don’t have to feel that way anymore.
“I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God, it changes me.”—C.S. Lewis (via lifehurtsjesusheals)
