I am no longer in my parents house…for the summer that is. I have my own shelf in the fridge, a cabinet for myself, and a single room all my own. It’s weird having a kitchen and having to cook for just myself instead of my whole family. The concept of only cooking just enough for me is just bizarre.
I have two new roommates as well, but I have been so busy with moving in and my new job that I haven’t gotten to hang out with them much yet. My room is super tiny, but it’s the first time that I have had a room to myself while renting so it’s nice having my own space (as tiny as it may be).
I’ve got all my makeup and pictures set up. Luckily, since I don’t have any school books with me, so I can fit all my makeup stuff on my desk. I mean, having mascara in reaching distance is obviously priority number one.
The pictures on the wall tend to follow me from place to place. They are from a Paris calender that I had a few years back, but it was made on a thicker paper so the pictures are more durable. It’s weird to look up at them and think that one day I may be standing in one those exact spots.
I’ve always have my three stuffed animals in my bed. The tiger is the most important possession that I own. He’s been everywhere I have traveled and every room I have ever lived in since I was in the fourth grade. Yes, I am aware I just referred to a stuffed animal with a pronoun. Don’t judge me. That tiger is my bro.
Since the room is already small, I wanted to be able to hide my clothes if anyone stops by. I think the curtain adds dimension to the room instead of having a big empty doorway and all my clothes falling off the hangers.
I started my internship yesterday, and it went pretty well. It seems like it’ll be a good company to spend eight weeks working for. I’m going to have to shift around the times when I can write my blog posts, but I’ll make it work.
Summer seems so long right now. In June it always does. It’s not until September that you look back and wonder how it passed you by so quick!
Would you rather have a tiny room for yourself or a big room that you share with someone else? Are you working this summer?
