Hi! I started uni again a few days ago, so here are my essentials! I hope they work for you as much as they do to me♡

1♥ Color pens

pens, pencil, and school image school, notebook, and book image
Choose which color you are going to use for what, it could be titles, random fun facts, subtitles... anything!

2♥ Markers

Temporarily removed school, study, and style image
I usually use them for titles,, this way I can identify when a certain topic ends.

3♥ Notebooks

Temporarily removed study, school, and motivation image
The amount depends on how many subjects you have and how "heavy" they will be. For university I usually share one notebook with 2 subjects and have an extra one for my online subject, since it usually requires more space.

4♥ Taking notes notebook

aesthetic, cafe, and college image study, coffee, and book image
This is the notebook you can use to make a mess with your notes, later on write them down again but in the notebooks mentiones before.

5♥ Normal pens

gift, notebook, and ornament image study, school, and pen image
The basics: blue, black & red. Usually blue helps memorize better, just a fact!

6♥ Pencil

For any number subject or a draft for an essay!

7♥ Calculator

Image removed study, school, and notes image
For any number subject as well, I usually prefer to have a separate one other than the one that comes with your phone... it helps me use my phone a little less.

8♥ Laptop

bed, indie, and room image bed, comfy, and cosy image
I think we all know why this is essential! Make sure it works well and it doesnt have any virus or anything.

9♥ Phone

It will help you communicate with your classmates if you ever need help in any subject... or if they need yours of course!

10♥ Highlighters

blue, college, and colors image photography image
Use several ones with different colors, for the same use you give to the color pens.

11♥ Bibliography

It is so important, especially in university/college, that you have this with you. It could be in PDF's or in paper, I personally prefer them in the second one, this way I can write notes all around it.

12♥ Headphones

On my way to uni & back I like to listen to music, and also while doing homework! It's a good distraction and it personally keeps me calm.

13♥ Wifi

This is SO important nowdays! Make sure it works well, since you are probably going to be needing it a lot, and we don't want to go to the coffee shop every.single.day for wifi.

14♥ Comfy clothes

Image removed fashion, outfit, and style image
Depending on your scheduele you are going to spend a lot of time there, so make sure you feel comfortable in whatever you are wearing. I would never recommend something that feels too tight on you, for example.

15♥ Sweaters

fashion, girl, and style image fashion, girl, and style image
I wanted to separate this from clothes since I think they are so important! Especially if your classes are always cold, and if they are freezing you won't be able to concentrate correctly.

16♥ Confidence

Yes, you can & yes, you will. Don't bring yourself down or let others bring you down. Study and do your work, YOUR way.

17♥ Folders

Write down all the activities you have to get done, and the dates of a certain exam.

19♥ Planner

20♥ Liquid Paper/Eraser

21♥ Lip balm

27♥ Post its

study, desk, and university image pink image
I use them for little notes that don't fit a notebook paper and I don't want to waste another one on it. And I even use them to write down what I have to get done, so I don't forget.

28♥ Water bottle
