Back to School- College

I leave for Georgetown on Saturday morning. I have very mixed emotions about heading back to DC for school. I have loved being home this summer and spending time with Soccer Mom & Dad and Sporty Sister (and our two cats Pookie and SoHo).
Things I will miss:
  • My family
  • My cats
  • Favorite restaurants & shops
  • Crafting & painting
  • All the kids I babysit for!!!!
  • Walk in closet
  • Not sharing a room or bathroom

Things I’m excited about:
  • My friends!!!
  • Coxing
  • Exploring the city
  • Basketball games
  • Nightlife
  • Did I mention my friends???
  • Midterms (haha, just kidding!)
Every five minutes I change my attitude about going back. Regardless of how I feel about it, I have to! Which is a good thing, because I know I’m going to have a really good and fun year!
So, what can’t a college prepster live without?

Travel coffee mugs! They have to be cute, or else it’s no fun. I literally inhaled caffeinated tea (I don’t like coffee just yet) during stressful weeks. The coffee shops around campus will discount the price of your drink if you use a reusable cup or mug instead of a paper product. Hello… go green, look stylish, and be alert!
An 80’s costume… or really any costume. A ton of parties are themed and you don’t want to be scrambling around trying to throw together an outfit last minute. Go thrift store hunting!!! A cute costume shouldn’t cost you more than eight dollars.

Laptops are god’s gift to the student in my opinion! But they’re pretty fragile beings. Take really good care of your laptop by using protective cases. This laptop sleeve is in a Lilly print and the company that makes them has other fabulous fabric choices. Another useful tip, don’t lay your laptop down on the floor in a crowded library 😉

Koozies are wonderful for diet coke. Be the life of the party with a monogrammed one. Or search for a Vineyard Vines koozie. I carry my VV koozie around in my Longchamp at all times. You never know when you might need it!

When I look around my classes, nearly everyone has the same laptop. Stand apart and personalize yours with a monogrammed decal. I am coveting them right now!!!
A first aid kit comes in handy… and who wouldn’t want a pink one?

A school shirt! Self explanatory, don’t you think? PS don’t you just love the college editions of the Vineyard Vines sash and headband???

This is Georgetown Boy’s addition. The Bro Hat. As he puts it, it completes a preppy outfit and keeps things casual.

Here is GB modeling both the school spirit (sweat)shirt and Bro Hat. PS I’m 5’5″ (I grew an inch since last summer!!!)… he’s very tall! 🙂
The next time I blog, I’ll be reporting from my dorm! I hope all you students have a great year!!!
