One of my new-found frustrations with the college lifestyle (probably just a symptom of senioritus) is the fact that every part of your life takes place under one umbrella of busyness.
Take this summer, for example. I worked. When I left the office, I really left the office. I didn’t take work home with me, or worry about it after hours. It allowed a lot of relaxation on my off-hours.
But this semester everything is all crazy, and jumbled into one place. I go to class, and that becomes my work. I do homework all the time, I edit stories, I create PR pieces. There is hardly any separation between work and play.
That is why having a pretty little apartment is so important to me. It is my source of consistency. I know that if my room is bright and clean, my day will feel better.
My roommates and I were lucky enough to score the best apartment on campus, in my opinion. We each have our own room, two bathrooms, a nice kitchen, living area, and laundry room. It’s cookie-cutter, but as far as college living goes, it’s pretty divine.
Each of our rooms reflect a different personality, too. Mine is just all over the place, so I will show it off a little bit. You can tell me what kind of personality I must have.

This is my favorite. I found these at Hobby Lobby, and these little silhouettes hold my scarfs. Here is a better look at how they function:
