Universtiy Room

I've been living at Uni for about 4 months now, and I finally feel like I'm settled in. My walls have been covered, fairy light strung up and nick-knacks places in every possible place. I sensed it was about time that I shared my little room at the end of the corridor with you.

For me, a room should be somewhere that you feel happy, safe and comfortable. When I lugged all my belongings up 5 flights of stairs in September, I stared at the empty room before me and couldn't wait to fill it with my things. It was so bland and unloved. It’s hard to imagine that in less than 6 months I will be clearing this room out and again and moving into a different house. For me it was really important to make my room special. It was my first time away from home where I didn't know anyone and knew that my room was going to be important place to escape what was going on at times. Being at the end of a quite corridor really does mean that I have my own space. I can come in, shut the door and be in my own world. The walls are covered with pictures of my family and friends. The pictures make the room full with memories and happiness from back home.

It’s really strange how a room has the power to transport you to a certain place or completely change you mood but I am so happy to be able say that my room does just that!
