As a college student, you’ve probably got a list of things you cannot live without. The list might look something like this:
1) THE STUFFED BEAR YOU BROUGHT FROM HOME
Shh, don’t tell your roommate! Oh wait, she already knows, since you snuggle with it every night.
2) YOUR CAMPUS HOODIE
You wear this to pretty much every class. There’s a slight chill in the air? Grab the hoodie. Don’t have clean laundry? Grab the hoodie. Spilled sauce on your t-shirt? Grab the hoodie. Woke up with a hang-over and don’t want to riffle through your closet? Grab the hoo…oh, wait you’re already wearing it.
3) THE CAFETERIA PIZZA
Maybe it’s delicious, with gooey cheese and a crispy-golden crust. Maybe it’s like a piece of cardboard with squashed tomatoes and cheese gratings dribbled over it. But no matter what your campus cafeteria pizza tastes like, chances are you’re eating it. Hey, you’re on a budget and the pizza’s a dollar a slice. Plus, it’s a quick snack between classes. Just make sure you don’t have any sauce on your chin! (Or hoodie, for that matter.)
Umm, it’s the night before two midterms and three papers. Okay, scratch “sleep” off the list.
This is number five on the list, but it may be the most important. I admit you can squeak by without a laptop. There are computer labs located all over campus, and when in a bind you can always borrow your roommate’s. But roommates always draw the line about letting you borrow their camera or cell phone. And in this technological age, no student can live without these two items. Unfortunately, electronics are not guaranteed to work. I had my cell phone die when I dropped it in some water, and immediately rushed out to get a new one the next day. I knew I couldn’t live without contact with the outside world. My digital camera has gone on the fritz, too. Thankfully, I backed up most of my photos, so it wasn’t a terrible loss. I also managed to repair my camera, though at a hefty price.
