I’ve been meaning to devote a post or two to my room’s set up/decor for awhile…but I thought that before I showed my room in its prime I should show it in the normal state. It really hasn’t been clean since Recruitment, but for that week and a half it was really, REALLY clean. Of course, it wasn’t naturally clean…simply because we have so much stuff and not enough room for all of it. To deal with this situation, we created a secret hiding space for all of our stuff…where we would hide everything that didn’t have a home during each day of Recruitment so no one saw it. This included some food, my roommate Katie’s clothes, some shoes, and other random things that were just laying around…and the place where we would hide it all was our bath tub. Think about it, if you put things in the bath tub then you can close the curtain, and just like magic…everything is hidden.
I know…it’s kind of gross. But it was clean – and every day we would just empty it before we needed to use the shower….and then fill it again after.
If we could have our room look nice, clean, and orderly all day every day…I would be all for it. But let’s be serious… we are in college and we are not neat people…at all. So we just do what we can to make sure that we aren’t living in filth, and put most of our stuff in piles. This way, it is at least a comfortable space…right?
So…that is our room in its normal state. Check back next week for our room in its prime…where you can actually notice our style and all of the awesome decorative things we made. I promise – it is a REALLY awesome room…and I’m only slightly biased.
