Ever wonder what exactly you should put in your bedroom?

I have learned recently that you will move at least once in your lifetime, which means new opportunity for a fresh bedroom and new outlooks. I have gathered some of my own ideas and tips to creating the coziest and most comfortable bedroom to make you feel at home no matter where you’re living.

1. Pick a hue that will satisfy your taste.

Having a color scheme for your bedroom could make or break whether it’s your favorite hangout spot. I prefer things light and open while others could prefer rooms darker and cozier. Having a place that feels right to you is the first step to making sure your room feels like yours.

2. Invest in a good mattress or mattress topper.

For me, the bedroom is all about the bed and sleeping. I think if you should spend the most money on something, it should be your bed, because that is where you will spend the most amount of your time.

3. You need a lot of storage.

If you’re like me and have a lot of stuff but hate visible clutter, then you need to get dressers and cute storage spaces to store all of your belongings without it looking like a mess.

4. Plants, plants, plants.


Real or fake, I will always support the idea of having a lot of plants throughout your bedroom. It makes it more inviting and more alive. It is also teaching you the responsibility of having to take care of something if you choose to have real plant.

5. Buy something cozy to sit on that isn’t your bed.


My personal preference is a papasan chair because if you curl up in a blanket, you’ve transported into your own nest. You can also get things like butterfly chairs, beanbags or poufs to sit on, as well!

6. Display personal pictures.


You want your room to have aspects of you, so adding a personal touch with personal photos or personal belongings like other trinkets will help you feel more at home by the second.

7. Decorate. A lot.


I am someone who doesn’t like to have a lot of stuff around -- I like things to be messy, but I also love different items to decorate rooms with. You can literally make anything into a decoration if you really tried. Being able to hang posters and shelves is a good thing. Putting decorative bottles and little picture sayings will really help spice up your room.

8. Have a fluffy or interesting rug.


I have a faux sheep fur rug in my room and I absolutely adore it. I choose to sit on the rug more often than I do my chair! Having something on your floor to cover up the boring carpet or wood will really help the aesthetic of your room.

9. Think about a low-maintenance pet.

If you’re interested in the idea of taking care of plants, you could also try investing in a low-maintenance pet as well, like a fish. Oddly enough, it will make you feel less lonely when you are just hanging out in your room on a Saturday afternoon.

10. Do you enjoy having a TV or music?


Having a TV, computer or a radio can also be beneficial if you need something to do while bored or make yourself feel more at home.

11. Candles and other smell-good products are a must.


You don’t want your room to smell bad, do you? They also can add a little extra color on your desk or dresser!

12. Let friends to enjoy your space, too.


Invite your friends over to see your newly decorated room and I’m sure they’ll fall in love.

Having a space that is all your own can really help improve your outlook on life. It will make you more motivated and more all-around comfortable!

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

Hey,

So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Sincerely,

Me

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.

They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch

Bitch

What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
