Taking Books and DVDs to College

I have a month until I'll be moving into a dorm room, so I'm having to start thinking about what exactly I'll be taking with me.  As much as I'd like to take all of my books and movies, that's obviously not going to happen (especially books).  I'm debating buying all of the Harry Potter ebooks because taking all seven of my hardbacks to college wouldn't exactly be ideal.  I feel as if I need to take at least one of them with me though because they're my ultimate comfort book.  I know I'm going to be getting home sick, and I definitely need at least one Harry Potter book to open up and read when I'm feeling down.  I feel like it will probably be Sorcerer's Stone and/or Deathly Hallows that I take.  The same goes for the movies.  I'll need at least one of them to watch as well for whenever I'm feeling down, but I'm not so sure about which one or two I'll take.  I may even take all of those.

I'd also like to take The Hunger Games with me, and since they're smaller, I may actually take all of them with me.  Since the movie comes out on DVD the day after I move in to the dorm, I'll probably be buying it up in Indianapolis, so I'll have it with me.

Other than that I'm having a hard time deciding if I should bring other books that I've already read.  I have quite a few books I haven't read yet, so I want to take those along so I can read them.  I know if I start deciding between the other books, I'll want to take them all, but more to just have them.  I would almost certainly not be re-reading them any.  I just like having them there for comfort, although that might sound weird, so I'm not sure what I'll decide there.

Deciding on DVDs is a bit easier.  I want to take Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and the Frog, since those are the only Disney movies we own on DVD that are mine as opposed to the whole families'.  I may take at least one of the Twilight movies (probably Breaking Dawn Part 1) and one or both of my versions of Rent.  I plan on taking a couple of seasons of Little House on the Prairie and at least one season of Avatar.  I'd take all three seasons of Avatar, but my second and third seasons are in multiple volumes and that makes them harder to take all of them.  I also want to take at least one season of Friends, but I don't know if I can get one away from my sister.  The irony here is that most of them are mine, but my sister refuses to accept that and won't let me take even one with me to college.  Who knows what we'll work out there.

It'll be interesting to see what I end up bringing with me.
