In this week’s special university-centric video, we answer one of the most popular questions we’ve received: What the frack are you supposed to pack for your dorm room?!(We also talk a bit about how to deal with homesickness when you leave for school.)

If y’all have any favorite to add, feel free to reblog the video and let us know!  (We’ll reblog some of our favorite posts here all week.)

If you’d like to see more weekly “How to Adult” videos from ElmifyT. Michael Martin, and Hank & John Greenbe sure to subscribe!

P.S. There are a few bonus suggestions in the video’s description. Huzzah, super thoroughness! :D

SUGGESTIONS: Tool kit. You never know when something’s going to break. Also a small vacuum (at least four different people borrowed mine over the course of freshman year). If your room has its own bathroom or shares one with the room next door, you should have a plunger (if you need one and don’t have one, the results are SUPER UNPLEASANT).

  • Assassin's Creed Unity: *no playable female Assassins*
  • Male gamers: This is just fine, so shut up! What's important isn't the character's gender, it's the story they are in! Who cares about the characters' genders? Stop trying to ruin other people's fun!
  • Hyrule Warriors: *10 playable characters, 8 of them are women*
  • Male gamers: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!?! There are too many girls in this game! What about us, the male fans? Why the female fans have more options? Women aren't interesting, if you don't include more men in the game then the story will become boring!



what can be smooth but also rough ;)))))

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place

that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.

but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.

i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.

it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.

and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”

no, it’s not

it’s childish.

it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
