With the end of the semester coming closer and closer many things are going through my mind: Finals, tests, homework, studying, and moving out. Moving out is going to be the hard thing, especially since while I moved into the dorms with just about 2 cars full of stuff I also managed to make another trip or so a few weeks later with at least a trunk full of other things.
I did happen to move in with a box or so of perishable foods that I have been slowly eating, which somewhat narrows down the list a little, but the big things that I came up with are the worries. After move in day I brought up the griddle I got for Christmas, a blender, a set of drawers for a nightstand, a rug to decorate my room a little more and a couple extra things to hang on my wall.
Very slowly I’ve been moving things back. Clothes I wore during the winter I no longer need, art supplies I never have time to use, DVD’s that I’ve watched, and even a couple things that I realize I don’t really use or have a use for any more such as little decorative items or a bottle of shampoo that I had bought to be a backup and now I realize I don’t need.
This weekend is really the test. I’m bringing home a couple big things and hoping not to break them in travel.
First up is my TV and DVD player. See while the housing office up graded our TV service the big old bulky TV’s don’t get reception any more, and mine being at least 7 years old and still having a VHS player attached to it does not get these amazing channels, or any channels for that matter. I’ve really just kept it around to watch DVD’s and not over heat my laptop with such nonsense. I don’t need the TV anymore, and with the TV goes the DVD player, as well as the rest of my DVD’s.
Next is a few dishes. I brought plenty of dishes to school and I’m sure if I bring home a couple plates and cups my roommates won’t get to annoyed, it’ll just mean dishes need to be washed a little more often.
I am also thinking about making a boat load of pancakes before I leave for the weekend and just stuff them in my freezer so that I can take back the griddle and any extra bisquick I have. I think I enjoy making pancakes more then I do eating them now a days so hopefully I’ll have a little fun doing it.
Lastly might actually be my desk lamp. I brought it to school not knowing if I was going to use it, and for the most part I haven’t I get decently enough light during the day from outside, and the light in my room provides enough at night that I don’t really need an extra light, and the fact that I barely use my desk to do work might have something to do with it too.
I’m not exactly sure how many cars are going to help me move out, but hopefully all of my stuff will be able to fit inside the available cars. Wish me luck, because carrying back all of these things, I might just need it.
