q: how thrilled am i that i have a real room?
a: a trillion percent.
it’s taken me nearly the full two weeks that i’ve lived here to unpack my mountain of material possessions and fashion my little room to my liking. the arduous task is behind me now, and i can, at long last, simply revel at the wondrousness of my room.
my other, very tall bookshelf, with my treasure box full of letters and the old-as-time globe that josh’s grandma’s boyfriend gave to me. i think that globe has been my favorite acquisition of the summer.
i bordered my ceilings with 4×6 photos, and hung up my favorite old map, three of my favorite photos that i took in south africa, and three of my favorite photos that i took when i was in high school. a happy combination of past, present, and future.
