This post WILL be about my apartment’s living room and restroom areas. It will. I got rather off-topic last time talking about one of my favorite things–books. I should be fine this time as long as I don’t mention books, ballet, rabbits, knitting, or playing with Playdough. All favorites of mine. All highly distracting.
Here is the other side of my living room area in my residence place where I live on campus with three other junior girls in Butler’s Apartment Village. As I said last time, the living room area–unlike the bedrooms–comes completely unfurnished. We had to provide all you see in the picture: sofa, coffee tables, decorative vase, decorative pillows, decorative roommate.
The living room area is carpeted, and one wall (the one you see the background of the above picture) is painted a dark sort of gray. It’s really pretty and would match pretty much anything. Nice touch, Butler. It’s nice not to be surrounded by white walls all the time. Very homey.
Also, the central window is HUGE. I managed to miss it in the above picture, but the photography documenting our Christmas decorations will do nicely.
My bedroom is just behind the grey wall, and one of my roommate’s is next to mine. Two other roommates are on the other side. For each set of bedrooms is one bathroom and one sink area. Thus we total five sinks (because there is one in the kitchen) in the apartment. That’s a 1:1.25 human to sink ratio! (Right? Oh dear. It will really embarrassing to have passed calculus-physics only to mess up that comparison.)
There are two sinks just outside each restroom, one for each resident. Will you believe it, this is first time I’ve ever had a sink to myself since I was three years old? The freedom to be as tidy or as messy as I want is intoxicating…
I stayed on topic! Hooray! Thus ends my protracted tour of my residence this year. If you’ve missed the beginning posts, I’ve listed them below. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to lurk on Skype.
