My Dorm Room Essentials

As a 12th grader, I have to prepare a lot of things before I enter my college life. I have to process my registration forms, scholarship applications, and keep looking for informations about my major (what will I do and what stuffs I need to prepare). Actually, the university I choose is pretty far from home, but I haven't decided whether I'll stay in my parent's home or start living in a the dorm. 

To be honest, I don't like the idea of living alone. It would be lonely and boring and probably gadgets will be my only time killer. That's no good, right? But, on the other hand, I like it that there won't be anyone who scold me if my room is messy or if I don't sweep the floor, etc (pardon my laziness). Also, my favorite part of the idea of living alone is that I can decor my room as cool as I want! 

So, just for today, let's imagine I'm freshly graduated from high school and now officially a college student. In this post I'll share with you my dorm room essentials and some tips about great ways to decor your room. A friendly reminder; this post will be written according to my opinion and personal taste ;)

BURST YOUR CREATIVITY OUT

Don't let your room wall gets lonely. Add some your artsy creations like collage photos and some statement posters. Make some drawings on canvas, cut some of your favorite magazine pages of your favorite movies or actors, and proudly put it on your wall. Buy or make some unique dreamcatchers, and get some fairy lights or cute lanterns as decorations too! The most important thing to remember is make sure you're happy with it! 


DON'T STARVE YOURSELF

A good college student always supply their food in the room. But most of our favorite food and drinks are more enjoyable after refrigerated, right? Also, sometimes we can't finish our snack and want to leave some for the next day. Start saving your money and buy a mini fridge! I'm sure it will be very useful for your everyday needs. You can simply stock your food and drinks in the fridge for some time (2-3 days, for example) instead of buying them everyday in small amount because of the worries they won't stay in good quality the next day. You don't need to go outside anymore if you suddenly get hungry at night! 

LET MUSIC GET YOU RELAXED

Believe it or not, music is one of the most important essentials of your room. Music can makes you feel relaxed everytime you feel tired after a long day. You can buy a speaker (you don't need it big and expensive, but at least buy a standard quality so it won't easily broke) and connect it to your phone or laptop. Make some playlists based on the theme or genre, or you can also arrange it based on what songs you want to hear when you're sad or happy or disappointed or lacking of confidence.

SLEEP WELL!

Here comes the primary essential. As everyone knows, college life will make you very busy as time flies. We need to finish a lot of assignments until very late at night yet we still need to wake up early the next day with full energy. And for that, we need to make sure our bed is the best place to end the day. I like my bed covered in white. It makes me feel calm and pleasant. Also, my favorite bed cover is the thick and soft one. You can lit scented candles on your nightstands to make you fall into deep sleep easier. 


Where to get my bedding needs?
Recently, I found out this website selling great bedding basics called as www.parachutehome.com


Parachute sells things you need to fulfill your bedding needs like bed covers, bed sheets, pillowcases, and many more. They also sell beach totes and towels, Cashmere throws, and scented candles. Parachute was imagined to offer premium quality bedding at an accessible price. Their products are designed in LA and made in Italy. The bedding is made of the finest long-staple Egyptian cotton, combed with precision to remove all impurities and dyed naturally in a process that surpasses the highest safety and environmental protection standards. 

If you're looking for bedding basics for your room, just click the link and make your orders! You won't regret the quality of their products ;)
