Oh hey we’re finally at the last room in the apartment (well, at least the last one I’m sharing. You guys don’t get to see my apartment-mates’ room, I don’t think they would appreciate that)! It’s weird because my bedroom is probably the most personalized space in our apartment, but at the same time it just kind of looks like a bedroom and I don’t think it’s as exciting as the other rooms in our house. That said, it’s come a long way since how it was on move-in day.
It’s a little messy, actually I can’t say that because compared to most of my friends my side of the room is clean enough to be part of the ICU at a hospital. But it’s a little messy in a home-y, like a person actually lives here kind of way instead of in a PB Teen ad tidy way.
I am a big fan of bringing little personal things to decorate with. Hence the lightsaber, Captain America plushie, and tiny Tardis among other things. I also use the two pin boards above my bed to pin up mementos from things I did over the course of the school year. It’s pretty empty now, but by the end of the year I’m always running out of room.
More personal trinkets on my desk. Here you get a brief glimpse of Fred and Ida, my dinosaurs (they’re married), and my Gryffindor mug (I’m officially a Gryff on Pottermore). You also see my GRE prep book, which is less exciting.
And a small detail – I stole this idea from my mum but I used command hooks to hang up all my necklaces. It stops them from getting tangled like they did when they were in my jewelry box, reminds me of what I have and I’ve found that I wear my necklaces more since doing it. All wins in my book.
