18 Tragic Things Only An Overpacker Would Understand
*empties entire drawer into suitcase*
Anyone who considers themself to be an overpacker knows that packing is a fucking nightmare.
And it’s the most cardio you’ve done since you put that fitted sheet on your mattress.
Writing a list gives you the illusion of organization, making you feel confident. But all that is shattered once you see what your travel buddy is bringing.
Because you have an innate need to be ready for any occasion and whatever Mother Nature has in store for you.
When you finally lay out all the clothes you "need," you realize that this might be a little more complicated than you thought.
Because "packing light" or "editing" are words that simply don't exist in your vocabulary.
And you didn't even start to tackle your ~toiletries and cosmetics~ yet...
And don't even get me fucking started on SHOES.
After a couple attempts of putting things in and taking them out again with the same results, you don't even want to go anymore.
Nothing fuels your frustration more than people offering solutions like "rolling things up" or "putting things in your carry on" because NOTHING CAN SAVE YOU NOW.
But after hours of struggling, there's nothing quiet that the adrenaline rush of finally getting everything to fit.
Even if you got injured in the process.
But don't celebrate yet. This doesn't mean you're in the clear. You still have to board the actual plane.
Never forget that shuffling items between suitcases is a fun and embarrassing way to kick off your vacation.
And wearing all your heavy items on the plane really messes with the undercover celeb/yoga expert aesthetic you were going for at the airport.
