Outskirts of the Kingdom: Over-Packing!

Yes, that's my Tinkerbell makeup bag..
Honestly, I am typically a feather-light packer. I know, I know, I'm a girl, so that cannot possibly be true. But it is. Some trips I freak out the night before and stuff a bunch more things in my suitcase and feel like I have over packed, but when I compare to my travel companions...I am still miles ahead in the "light packing" competition. Not that's it's a competition. But seriously. I win.

But when it comes to packing for the College Program, what kind of packer am I? Well, right now I cannot tell, but my plan is to bring EVERYTHING I need because I do not want to have to buy a lot once I'm down there. That includes any clothes I think I will want. I know everyone over packs on clothes, but I'd rather have enough/more clothes than need to do laundry every week, since that will not happen. To thy own self be true, and pack enough underwear to last you 3-4 weeks so you don't have to do laundry constantly (That's a Shakespeare quote right? Taming of the CP or something haha).

I know a lot of people want a good packing list to use for their program, so I'm going to list mine below. I think you could definitely use this as a base to delete and add things that you need. Also I hope to write another entry on Packing Lists after I've been on the CP for a while, and let you all know if I packed too much, too little, just right, and any other advice I would've wanted for myself.
