a tiny tour

i am in love with our gallery wall. it has everything and everyone i love right up on it!
these desks make us look so studious, but really most of our homework is completed in bed. 
i actually make my bed every day, this was not just a 'look good for the picture' moment. thanks, mom.

something posessed me the other night (it was probably my HUGE lack of homework motivation) to deep clean Eug and my room and share it with you guys.
it wasn't a difficult task, because we keep things pretty tidy around here (thanks to ms. clean room nazi (a.k.a me)). and yes, i did just use parenthesis within parenthesis. which you can actually do, you just shouldn't if you want to be taken seriously in your writing.
i remember the first time i saw parenthesis used in a great author's work. i was reading c.s. lewis and i was blown. away.
i digress.
i am so thankful for this space we have to ourselves on campus. i know for some people, a room this size would be a dream, so i can hardly express how nice it is to have enough room to sprawl out on the floor (because that's just what you do after an especially long day).
it took a week or two to put the wall entirely together, and get our furniture placed just-so, but i am quite pleased with the product and feel at home. there's nothing quite like snuggling up in bed under the christmas lights and reading a book (which sadly happens to be a textbook because we don't like to have too much fun around these parts). and that 70's-esque paneled wall you see there? i am in love with it. it's also the only wall we're able to hang stuff on because cinder block hates all things hangie. go figure.
also, i've been feeling extra rosy lately. i don't know if it's fall right around the corner or what, but i am so content with life and so, so thankful. it's a beautiful world we live in, isn't it?


p.s. like those dream catchers? the inspiration for them came from here
