Happy October, everyone! I'm realizing I didn't make a post about this...
I LOVE MY NEW APARTMENT.
I moved in at the end of August, right before school started. It's somewhat on campus, has a perfect kitchen and bathroom area, and I get my own room! I love that I can look into the field/residential area from my window. It's so beautiful during magic hour.
This is going to be a short post, but I wanted to share this beautiful space with you.
I spend a lot of time in here. It's already achieved the "lived in" feel that I was going for. I feel very safe and creative in this space.
As for the walls, I wanted to go for a color gradient theme. I'm still working on building the pinkish side on the left, but I'm very happy with the way that the posters and pictures transition from pinks/reds to oranges/yellows to greens/blues.
I have room to display and charge my crystals. There's enough space for my potted plants in mason jars, candles, jewelry, and oils. I finally have a full sized bed and I've been sleeping very well.
I'm extremely happy with this space. But most of all, I'm proud of myself for being able to make a home for myself wherever I go. I've moved many times over the last couple years, bouncing from dorm to dorm to apartment to apartment. I'm appreciative of this living space for sheltering me and I'm grateful for my own abilities to make any place feel comfortable.
Happy October! I hope you're cultivating your own cozy (or spooky?) space for yourself.
