So, the little caterpillar is all set to be a butterfly, haan? A lot changes in your life when you step out from your school life. While for some, they get to stay with their parents, there are the others who live away from home. It can be a hard transition for some but if you think about it, it is actually going to change you in ways you can never imagine. If you’re freaking out about survival then, fret no more because we have a few tips and tricks that will totally come in handy and will make your hostel life days, the best days of your life! You’re welcome.

1. Keep them earplugs handy

You don’t always get to pick your roommate and sometimes might even land with someone as annoying at Chatur from ‘Three Idiots’. Jeez! So in times like these, just to steer clear of disturbances, keep a pair of ear plugs ready for them peaceful readings and sleep. Just in case they’re noisy or anything. You just want to be prepared, you see!

2. Keep a stock of your favourite snacks, well, because dorm food = NO

Sometimes all you need is a little masala in your life and not always will you find that in the hostels. Get yourself a stock of some chips or instant noodles for those midnight (or otherwise) hunger pangs.
