TOP FIVE GENERAL UNI ESSENTIALS:


 
Embarking the University road can be both challenging and exciting. Once you've gone through the sleepless nights of wondering what university's to choose, whether or not you'll be accepted to the university of your choice and (the big whopper) whether university is right for you?! Your then on to the next stage, the most exciting one -or at least for me anyway, SHOPPING!
When preparing for university It can be challenging to predict what your going to need in everyday life, especially for those living away from home, and the essentials for your upcoming lectures. (Yes, the dreaded eventual end to months off for summer, when LECTURES BEGIN- but don't worry it's not all as daunting as it may seem ;). Take it from someone who's just recently been in your shoes, don't over think and focus on the negative because chances are, your cutting yourself short of what your really capable of. Be positive, go get it and don't stop. In the words of a friend 'You gotta do what you gotta do' and when life doesn't stop for you, don't stop for it.
 
After that quick intro and slight side track... without further a do may I present to you my,
Short and Sweet Top Five Guide to the most needed Uni essentials to get you being the tip top Uni student that we are all so capable of being (equipment wise anyway).


1. Be a Stationary Star.

Get your geek on and be the student who's always prepared but in a travel light sort of way (because not everyone has the upper body strength to be carrying around the worlds heaviest backpack of supplies). Chances are your going to need stationary with whatever course your doing, so why get on ball now.
(Pens, highlighters, a favourite pen, coloured pen [Pink], sticky notes and a sharpener)
 
 
 

2. Team Laptop.

The big purchase you'll no doubt be thankful for! With the world fast becoming predominantly technological, so is your Uni! Ideal for Essay writing, research, email, online ebooks and more. You will be sure to be on top with your trusty laptop by your side. (Plus the internet is a great time passer!)
 
 
 
Whether it be, a top of the scale expense wise, Apple Mac book (a purchase that is in the diary for me!) or the middle ground Windows, it's sure to be your wisest investment yet!
 

3. King of Tupperware.

When the world gets tough Tupperware will find a solution. The multi purpose holy grail of kitchenware will save your skin more than once, and I'm sure of it! Finding its way to every room in your accommodation. You can never have to many food storage boxes, dishes, lunchboxes, containers, bowls (for the stereotypical students out there, me included) and all the other uses you can find, its a must have in any student household.
 

(Don't forget to keep track of the lids! ;))
 

4. Stay Hydrated.

Water. The key to so many problems. It's so easy to forget to have a drink of water before its too late and buying bottles of water won't break the bank however, for all students out there, every little really does help! A good water bottle is chemical free, and just 100% handy.
(Mine's Mountain Warehouse, BPA Free!)
 
 

5. Matt the Shower Whisperer.

This is by far the most unacknowledged yet most used essential on the list (I'm talking to all you moving away from home future students out there!). A Shower Matt. You can thank me later, when you whip out your shower matt in either shared facilites or an en-suite, with the pleasure of knowing its brand new and 100% clean for the soul owner, YOU. Happy feet = a happy day. 


Well, that's my Top Five insight in to what I think are just a few of the essentials to the Uni life, feel free to comment what you think will be your top five essentials and if I missed out any vital necessities.
