So, here's the rundown. My cousin is finally starting university next semester (not the summer semester, but in September). Problem is, it's an extremely backwoods town - there's like one big Walmart off to the corner, and it takes a very long bus ride to get there. He's asked me for a list of what to bring...since I have been in university for a long while, and my answer was. Housewares: - 1 pot - 1 frying pan - lid that fits both - bathroom cleaning stuff (especially a mop an a bucket...completely complusory...) - chopsticks (2 pairs) - a spoon - a fork - a knife (suggestion: paring knife - does the job for both spreading and cutting) - towels (face and body) - toothbrush - cup for drinking/thermos to keep drinks warm - cup for toothbrush School: - pens - paper (either notebooks or lined and binders) - laptop - USB drive (this will be a backup, just in case his computer has a meltdown) - printer (this means no runs to the school just for printouts) Personal: - clothing, lots of clothing - some sort of entertainment device (I took my DS Lite instead...can be televisions and the like) - DVDS, CD's Optional: - a small chest freezer (that way, he can stock up on cheap frozen foods) - vitamins C, D or a multivitamin Anything missing from my list? I've just compiled it from the four semesters that I've been on campus.
