Packing List

Instead of actually packing (like I should be doing because I leave for Florida in 3 days and I’ll only actually be home for 2 of those days), I’m going to blog about it! That makes sense, right? (Don’t answer that.)

What to NOT bring:

Candles (I know, I cried too)

Dishes/Pots/Pans (they are provided)

Bed/Furniture (apartments are fully furnished)

Nails/hammer (still crying)

What TO bring:

Winter clothes! Yes, you will need them, stop looking at me like I’m crazy. Whatever semester you participate in, you’re going to want them. If you’re doing a spring program, I would say you’ll probably need more. You’re not going to need hats/boots/gloves/puffy winter coats (unless you’re the type of person who gets really cold), but you are going to want some pants, sweatshirts, and fuzzy socks. As someone who has been in Florida in the months of October-March, it can definitely get cold when the sun goes down or when the rain comes in. Last year when I was there in late February for the Princess Half Marathon, I ran outside in pants, an Under Armor quarter zip, and warm headband and was very comfortable. So don’t bring just shorts and t-shirts!
