Do you ever just have those times you laugh… and laugh… and laugh? And you can’t stop?
I love those times.
We’ll start with the messy corner of my room. This would be my desk. There’s some stuff that simply just does not have a spot [yet] and it ended up there. A pile of hats and a couple of awards. A box from my new headset with extra cables in it. Yanno, miscellaneous things. There’s also still 3 boxes of books to the right of my desk, my suitcase, my carry-on backpack, a stepladder, a mirror that didn’t fit, and the vacuum cleaner. All of that is just kind of there because there’s no other place. But… it works. There’s also still a box with photo albums under my desk, because there’s no other place for them. Again, it works.
Next, there’s my dresser. That got delivered (and put together) by Ikea exactly two weeks ago, along with my mattress- which is queen sized and really comfortable. But yeah, the dresser. Dang, I have a lot of breakable statuettes for someone that moves a lot. And my Volkswagen bus picture is on it. That (and everything else that is still laying around) will get hung up… soon. I just need a box of nails. Tomorrow is a new day… Maybe tomorrow I’ll hang some stuff on my walls. Anyway- all my clothes fit in the dresser perfectly. With the exception of a couple things that needed hung up… which are casually chilling in my mom’s room.
Then there’s my bed. Like I said, it’s queen sized perfection. There’s a bunch of pillows and blankets and honestly I don’t ever want to leave it. Also featured in this picture is the guitar I got from the previous house owner, my ukulele, my purse, and the sheet music to Knoxville-1800 by James Curnow. What you don’t see is my cleverly disguised bench beside my bed by the wall. It may or may not be three more boxes of books with a sleeping bag over them.
Oh, and on that nightstand you see my computer on? There’s a fully functioning NetGear router and a phone. I get some fantastic internet speeds and I can do my Civil Air Patrol conference calls from the most comfortable place in the house. I’m still so happy with how I have everything set up. I can roll over and still use my phone while it’s plugged in to charge, no matter what way I’m facing. It’s pure bliss.
Last, but not least, there’s this corner. Think away the baby scale, that’s just chilling there because there’s no other place for it. My CDs and DVDs, my Air Force gnome, my shoe bench (and all my shoes, of course), my hamper from a different angle. In the bottom left you can see part of the papasan chair. And my ducks are proudly displayed… in front of my Volkswagen bus Lego set that I got from my best friend at my graduation party. Hopefully I can hang up the poster my friends in CAP made me soon, too.
This is it. This is my room. It’s mine. I can play songs from Hamilton (the musical) as loud and as much as I want. I can listen to any music when I want. Because yanno, the attic is pretty far from the rest of the house.
Now, however, I’ll be going to bed. It’s two minutes to midnight. Good night, guys.
