This university student demonstrates what’s better known as collegiate magic. It’s the level when magic gets shiza serious, and it’s an easy way for you to make friends this semester. Imagine it: While your roomies are impressing new friends at a hall party with their iron liver’s ability to withstand jungle juice (lame) you can steal the attention by whipping out a coin and transforming it into an iPod.
If you’re at a kegger they’ll be 10 times more impressed than average folk because their motor functions are possibly limited.
Living away from home for the first time can be scary. What’s even scarier is thinking about all the stuff you need to get through the year. Unfortunately for you, all that stuff may not fit neatly in your new shoebox sized dorm room. Here are some tips and tricks to help you find unconventional storage space and to stay organize throughout the year.
1. Get rid of what you don’t need
The best way to stay on top of mess is to routinely get rid of things you don’t need anymore, especially when it comes to clothes. While packing for school, think about the last time you wore that shirt/pant/sweater or used that metallic gel pen. If you haven’t wore/used it in six months, it’s time to donate it or throw it out. Don’t worry about going to school without enough stuff — you’ll find yourself buying what you really need over time. Is there something you don’t need anymore, like summer clothes? Pack it up for the next time you go home. Trust me, at the end of the year, you’ll be surprised at all the stuff you’ve managed to accumulate.
2. Maximize your small space
Let’s face it: dorm rooms are not as big as the ones on TV. They get even smaller when you have a roommate to share the space with. The best way to stay tidy is to use every nook and cranny you can find. Take your bed for example. You can easily find a slim plastic storage box to slide under there. Use it to store linens, extra paper, non-seasonal clothes to bring back home, etc. If there isn’t enough space between your bed and the floor, look for bed risers to create that space.
3. Wall space is also valuable storage space
While most dorms won’t let you poke holes in their walls to hang things up, you can always use those super strong adhesives to attach hooks to your walls. Use them to hang your jacket, purses and book bags.
You can also use those adhesive strips to hang your very own magnetic make-up board. It’s perfect when drawer space is hard to come by and let’s you easily find whatever make-up tool you’re looking for.

Colours VS. Patterns
Sadly, getting back into the routine of classes is around the corner, and if you’re already there,we feel for you. On the bright side, going back to school comes with back to school shopping. You can still feel like you’re walking on sunshine with these fashionable backpacks. Which would you choose? [teenjournal]
Bring your non-existant boyfriends to school with you
Is it just me, or having these star-studded notebooks would actually give me the motivation to do my homework? Not only are they totally cute to carry around (and I wouldn’t be embarrassed about it), you can just doze off and stare at their pretty faces during a boring lecture.
Decorating your dorm
Sometimes when you’re off to college, you don’t actually get the living accommodations you thought you’d have. In the end, you have to make the best of it. I really like how this girl has all her necessities (desk, bed, fridge) as well as organizing bins to save space and clutter. You can never go wrong with bringing along pics of friends & family to feel more at home. [tarynxoox]
