Dorm Room Packing As Told By GIFS

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Fairfield chapter.

It’s finally that time of year. Classes have come to an end and soon finals will be a thing of the past as well. I think I speak for all underclassmen when I say we can’t wait to get out of our 10×12 cinder block dungeons, I mean rooms, and get the summer started…until we realize that means packing is in our near future.

You start off by telling yourself you’ll be organized and pack a little each day

But then you realize that everything takes priority over packing, like sleep, Netflix and food.

Soon enough it’s the end of finals week and not a single bag has been packed

You scramble the day before you have to move out and try to cram a week’s worth of packing into one hour.

You stumble upon some things you TOTALLY forgot about

…like that sandwich

… or all twelve of the shirts you borrowed from your roommate (she moved out yesterday)

You decide it’s easier to just throw things in your bag instead of folding them to save time

But then the inevitable happens: your bag doesn’t close

So you settle for trash bag suitcases and call it a day

And you rejoice looking at your empty room

Then suddenly you get emotional about the year coming to an end

But then, you’re finally ready to go. Peace out, dorm!
