11 Things You Most Definitely Won’t Need To Pack For University

Packing for campus life is exciting. You want to take everything you will need. You are an eager bright-eyed freshman with glorious ideologies and value systems intact and you have big plans for your optimistic self and the next 4 years. But packing is also EXTREMELY confusing, even Malala couldn’t escape it.

A semester or so later this will not be the case. The dorm room will stay undecorated and messy. You will not be the multiple-bullet-notebooks-and-color-coded-binder collegiate you were planning to be.

Don’t take the following things to university so that when you hit rock-bottom, you can pretend that you knew your shit before starting college.

6. Toiletries

7. Stationery

Generally speaking, if you can get something at a local store, don’t pack it.

8. Your entire wardrobe

You’re going to be switching between the same 5 t-shirts you mostly wear so don’t take shit you’ll barely wear more than once.

11. Your motivation

University main aa kar waisey he khoni hai. Behtar hai pehlay he ghar pey chhor do.
