The best of us must sometimes eat our words

it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

In this week’s special university-centric video, we answer one of the most popular questions we’ve received: What the frack are you supposed to pack for your dorm room?!(We also talk a bit about how to deal with homesickness when you leave for school.)

If y’all have any favorite to add, feel free to reblog the video and let us know!  (We’ll reblog some of our favorite posts here all week.)

P.S. There are a few bonus suggestions in the video’s description. Huzzah, super thoroughness! :D

As a former RA and Assistant Hall Director, I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the residence life website for rules and regulations on what’s allowed. It’s really terrible to have things confiscated because they’re against safety codes. On the bright side, a lot of colleges and universities supply some of the things mentioned in the video (mine provided a mini fridge and microwave in every room). Also, RAs are there to answer questions, listen to you, ensure safety, and plan programs, not really to get you in trouble. Thanks, Hollywood, for that misconception.

I worry that I might be seen to be name-dropping or boasting, so I have to constantly be self-deprecating. I feel people are always ready to jump on me. If I show any signs of being a diva or ungrateful, they are just too ready to criticise. It’s like they are desperate to find something they can hold onto. In the first semester I just didn’t talk about my life at home at all. Now I’ve realised that’s just stupid. Harry Potter has been such a big part of my life that if I don’t mention it I’m being fake and my friends are only getting to know a very small part of me. Finally, I’m starting to be able to say, ‘Yes, I’m famous. Yes, I’m in the films. You’re just going to have to deal with it.’ I’m not going to tiptoe around anymore.

today i found out that apparently if you kill someone in international waters on an unregistered boat then throw the body overboard they can’t trace it back to any one legal system so you can’t be prosecuted for their murder

so what did you do today

the URL makes it so much better

here’s a dating tip
if your partner suffers social anxiety or is an introvert, do not force them to go out on a date or hang out with you. more than likely, being alone relaxes their anxiety and recharges their energy. so respect that. and don’t bug them about it or take it personally. you’ll make their anxiety worse or just end up making them feel guilty as shit.
this goes for friends too. don’t do that to your friends.

Someone finally said it
