Georgia Summer Packing List

**Posted retrospectively**

So, it's about a week and a half before I leave for my summer internship in Georgia ("the country, not the state!" shouts a chorus of every American who's ever been to Georgia), so I decided to gather some of my belongings to start packing...just kidding, I'm leaving in 5 hours! hahahahahahahahahaaa...tears.

I'm very bad at packing. Very bad.
I thought maybe it would help to share my efforts with you guys, so here's what I'm bringing to Georgia!

This emergency last minute first-bag-was-too-heavy suitcase
