Hello, I guess this is a teen issue. I've asked so many people, and nobody can answer me. I am totally unprepared for college, and this is just one of my woes....
I have a care bears sheet set that is for twin beds, but the ones at the college dorms are Xtra long twin beds, about 5" more. Will my sheets fit it or am I going to have to go out and get some new sheets?
I got new ones (I think from a Sears catalog, hehe) when I went to college. I'd get the least expensive extra long fitted sheets you can find. You'll probably find you want to buy a lot of things for your dorm room, so save money where you can.
Stay with those sheets....I am a guy and going to say that is cute to have as sheets. We all have likes and dislikes. Don't change your cover or who you are. You need to show people what type of person you are. To me that would show upbeat and not afraid to hide the real you. You are going to notice people hobbies or what they like even though that you may not like it but they still keep it with them.
they won't fit... try target or wal-mart though they might have the same sheets in X-long, or just look in the internet in different places i'm sure you will find them in X-long but it's another way for the colleges to make money by making those beds much longer. You can always use your comforter and everything and just use one of the colors from the care bears as the sheets and kepe your pillow cases and everything else because those will all still fit.... GOOD LUCK!
