I’m hosting a joint bachelor/bachelorette party for my sister and her husband-to-be this weekend. They are both very sporty and competitive, so I knew I had to have battle of the sexes games and pit them against each other. In addition to the games (which include flip cup, corn hole, wedding trivia and charades), I wanted to send all of the guests home with a hangover kit.

In addition to the obvious questions “Will I get along with my roommate? Will I have enough time between classes to not be late? What will I major in?” (Yes, my roommate and I got along really well. No, I wasn’t late to any classes. I majored in Biochemistry.), I was thinking about all the pretty supplies I needed to have in order to start the new school year off on a good foot. Fast forward 6 years, and I’m doing the same thing (with pretty much the same questions!), when I’m starting my PhD program. For me, the start of the school year means splurging on pretty notebooks, pens and planners that will give you an extra edge, or at least a little motivation to study.
