This is, of course, not a complete packing list. For example, clothes haven't really been mentioned. I have the tendency to live out of boxes over the summer, though, so a lot of things are already (basically) packed. These are the things that are in danger of being left behind.
1 To be lent to a friend. 2 Purchased ahead of time, off of Amazon. I actually planned ahead! 3 Limit six Animorphs books. For real. 4 Possibly the thing that I forget most, no matter where I'm going. 5 I ran out last semester. 6 You keep the same mailbox with the same combination for all four years, unless you go abroad. I've made it a tradition to forget my combination over the summer. 7Nutcracker! 8 In the (possibly vain) hope that I'll be able to reuse books from one class to the next. 9 I've found that taking notes on my computer doesn't work for me--I like to draw too many diagrams, I think. 10 Funny story: One time, I forgot to bring my concert pants and didn't realize until I was trying to get dressed for a concert. I ended up wearing a pair of black sweatpants, and no one could actually tell the difference, but I don't plan on ever repeating that.
