Although I’m only going home for a little while for Christmas, and am not doing anything quite as selfless as Shikole (who talks about volunteering on Christmas Day here), I am facing a somewhat superficial dilemma. Packing.
I’m used to driving home for breaks. This gives me the luxury of bringing whatever I want back with me. Laundry? No problem! Summer clothes that I don’t wear anymore/ need in my closet? Throw them in the trunk!
Since I’m only going to be home for a few days for Christmas I decided to take the train (to avoid wintery weather and car issues). This means I need to consolidate my clothing for three days + a bunch of presents into one small suitcase.
I’m sensing this whole packing phenomenon will be something I need to get used to. Especially since I’ll probably be moving someplace else far away from home when I eventually leave Rochester. Still, it’s tough to figure out exactly what you want to wear/ will need with you three days in advance.
This is where I need your help post grads. Send me your packing tips! And follow The Real Post Grad on blogger while you’re at it! Thanks!!
