Wait until the day before to do anything, then sit on your bed staring at the pile of stuff to go through.
Go out and buy things you don’t have…Er at least things you don’t see and are too lazy to put effort into searching for.
Think you’re cool buying new underwear then realize you grabbed the wrong size. Thank you Ross for being so cheap so no huge loss is experienced!
Roll the crap out of everything before putting it into your bag.
Take only essentials. (Shirts, leggings, phone charger, power adapter, passport, moneys, underwear, toothbrush, pants, hat, texting gloves that make your already awful texting skills go to sh!t, and I suppose pants. Yes, pants are good.
Wear your would-be $249 puffy jacket that you bought for $19. Again, thank you Ross!
Money (NEW and unfolded bills for exchanging) in rfid blocker lined money belt.
Pay off credit card and rent before leaving.
Get excited about large paycheck direct deposited four days into the trip.
Stay up super late watching a movie and goofing off with roommates because sleep is overrated and since you’re not going to sleep anyway you might as well be social.
Pack your toothbrush.
Scrounge for another toothbrush so you can brush your teeth without having to unlock your backpack cuz it’s soooo difficult.
Layout clothing/heavy layers for flight. Saves space in bag to wear thickest stuff and airports and planes certainly do not feel like summertime.
Go to airport and take a wrong turn so you can take the scenic route to your terminal with your roommate.
Attempt to make jokes with the airline employees because what else would you do if you’re there at 4:45am?
Get overpriced food and coffee at the airport with just enough time for it to process so you can’t go to the bathroom to take care of what coffee does to people unless you want to miss boarding.
Okay it is 6:27, I am boarding now to New York bound flight #1/2. See you later!
