The most rewarding thing you can do before you leave for college is to advertise your mailing address repeatedly to your relatives and friends. Facebook it/tumbl it/tweet it and watch the care trickle into your dorm room.
Today, for instance, I got a fantastic surprise package addressed to a certain “Comrade” Anastasia (much to the dismay of my patriotic mailman, who looked pretty apprehensive about the proud display of communism he was holding in his hands). No matter: the box contained British chocolates and a book about my favorite Internet cat sensation, Maru. For me, it was the Best. Present. Ever.
I love my fwenz.
