As I write, I'm laying on the top bunk in my dorm room.
We left our house, an hour from Butler, at 11 yesterday morning & my parents and brother didn't leave here until about 7 last night. It was a long, but very productive day.
Proud Dad & Momma
This room is a lot different than my room last year because it has a bathroom in it that my roommate & I will share with 2 other girls on the other side. It's a jack & jill bathroom, I guess. Because of the bathroom, the room is very asymmetrical & makes decorating hard, especially when this tiny room has to hold 2 beds, 2 desks, 2 dressers & 2 people's extra things.
My roommate, Ashley, didn't really want to bunk the beds but there wasn't really an option so I figured taking the top bunk would be the best thing for me to do, especially since I don't mind at all.
Also, I forgot a regular pillow. Who does that?? Me.
I do kinda wish I had a rail on the side though.
What?? It would make me feel more comfortable!
Anyway, this room is also a lot less homey. I try really hard to make my living spaces nice because having a good place to come home to, especially when I only have one room to live in, is very important to me. It's going to be hard in this room, I think.
But since we bunked the beds, we have room for a futon, which will be nice & make things feel more cozy, I'm hoping. Luckily, we already have one that was my brother's & just have to get it up here when my dad can bring it up. Until then, we'll have a big space in front of the window.
I think it will feel better when we have a t.v. in here too. I don't watch much t.v. but it would be nice to have one now since I've moved in a week early for newspaper & Ashley won't be here until Sunday. Alas, Ashley is the one bringing the t.v. so I'll have to wait & watch Hulu on my computer.
When I get out of bed I'm going to go to Target & pick up some things I forgot like hooks for the walls & velcro-stick-up things. I hate these bare white walls. I'm going to get one of those tables that hooks on to top bunks too. You know, for late night snacks & my iphone. The essentials.
Today is also the first day of our writing bootcamp for newspaper & the day my friend Jessie is coming to visit. It has to be a good day with those two things on the schedule, right?
I'll post more pictures as more stuff gets up on the walls & it becomes more cozy in here.
Until then chickadees, have a good day!
ps. I'm doing some giveaways to celebrate my first day of classes next Wednesday & one of them is uhhh-mazing! Get excited!!!
