assalamualaikum and hello guys!

soon, i will be packing my bags for college and i'm sure it will be hard especially when you are an incoming freshman. it will be tricky to know what you will need when you are up and moving to a whole new environment. to be honest, i overpacked during my first semester and i realized how much i brought that i simply did not need. now i consider myself an experienced person about this and i thought i would share some of my packing list with you.
