Living Update: College Dorm

In August I started school at Indiana University and honestly I could not be happier with my living situation. My room is so incredibly homie. Adding a couch and rug made the biggest difference. And having a Keurig in the room makes me feel like I am living in luxury. I have the best roommate (she makes hot cocoa ya’ll) and the cutest room- not to brag or anything, but we totally have the best looking room on our floor.

I am honestly shocked at how well we were able to pull this off. Never in my life have I had full responsibility over every piece going into my room. And never have I gone into it so blind. When assigned a room at IU the only¬†detail you are given is the room number. Sure, you can look online at the sample layout but the website also says each room varies in layout. Trying to decorate a space that you have the slightest idea of what it theoretically looks like is quite the challenge. I was able to see a sample dorm room before moving in and that did not get me excited for dorm life at all- the room was so rough. So bare… So unappealing… Very drab.

BUT- I am so pleased to say that I am happy with my living arrangements. And my room is so much better than those neutral curtains, plain walls, beat up doors and dirty carpeting.

It is much cuter.
