Now that my first week of classes is done, I’ve officially settled into my new home in Macon. My little house is super cute, and I’m excited that my room has a little more “depth” to it than just four plain white walls.
Most of my decorations are little things that I’ve collected over the years. Whether it’s art from friends, post cards, or treasures from around the world, it all reminds me of all the people I love (and miss).
I’ve been very into Christmas lights recently (maybe it’s because I binged Stranger Things over summer break…or maybe it’s because I get all my decor ideas off Pinterest). One thing I really appreciate about twinkle lights is their ability to create soft light. As someone that frequently gets headaches, I’ve found that soft lighting is essential when having to power through a night’s worth of homework if you’re already feeling like your head is splitting open. My friends with “big girl jobs” use Christmas lights in their offices, too! Soft lighting for the win!
The wall above is still a work in progress, but I like where I’m at so far. I’m planning on adding postcards and letters from friends around the cork board. My favorite piece of art in my room right now is the painted chicken above my desk. I got it outside of the Met while I was in NYC a few weeks ago!
I am excited to see where week two of law school takes me, and if my room ever actually gets “completed.” Hopefully I will still be able to spend downtime here once midterms get started.
