Three weeks ago, I spent my first night in this new, strange place I'm going to have to call 'home' for the next three years. I must admit, it was strange, the walls were empty, the bed felt unfamiliar and the toilet was no longer just mine. It never felt like this was a mistake, or like I was doing something I shouldn't, it just felt a little odd. But as the walls were painted, the pictures were put up and the little bits and bobs were added around the room it started to feel more like a place I could live in. It's not finished, but I'm getting closer to an end result.
Making my own mistakes is scary, but also quite fun. I feel no pressure to do things right because the only person facing those consequences is myself. If the food isn't nice, I'm the only person who needs to eat it, if the washing turns out a different colour, it doesn't matter because it's my washing. It's just so relaxing knowing I don't need to ask somebody's permission to go out or money to buy clothes. All I need to do, is walk out the door and remember my keys (so far that hasn't gone wrong yet but it will definitely happen soon).
Since this is the first room I'm having to decorate, it's quite difficult to discover 'my style'. I think my room will be facing quite a few stages of development. The printout pictures hanging above the table were supposed to be temporary to cover up all the patches on the wall, but they're actually beginning to grow on me. I suppose I'll see where the room takes me. Perhaps I just need to do something and live with it for a few days. If I don't like, I can change it.
The overall vibe of the place so far is quite cosy. The beams make the ceiling quite low but chique and the kitchen is definitely a one person area. The blue wall is still quite bare, but once my inspiration comes, I'll have something to place there, I'm sure!
The room itself is very central. The marketplace is right outside my door making it ever so easy to nip to the shops. the alley is cute and (even though some may say it appears quite scary at night), I feel very comfortable in my little space. I realiset that this may seem like a bit of a 'useless' post, but the actual uni posts will come, no worries.
See you in the next post!
I'm a university student who loves to keep themselves busy with anything but university work. I also enjoy looking like a banana as you can tell from all the yellow coat pictures. I've somehow managed to turn into a music and photography geek. I'm not entirely sure how that happened but let's just go with it. That seems to be my life motto at the moment.
