I’ve never really packed my luggage before going to university. I used to count how many days I will be in a place and throw the same number of clothes. I even have to sit on my suitcase for it to zip.But university education has fullfiled my life. Now I can pack in less than two hours for a seven week trip! Yes, taking classes in university has taught me that it doesn’t matter how carefully you’ve prepared packing — You’ll still forget something. So don’t worry about the small stuff. Just throw what you can remember into your luggage. And of course, get a suitcase that’s large enough to store everything without you sitting on it. -Seriously though, I’ve learned more about throwing (letting go, as some would say) than packing.
