5 Easy Ways To Decorate Your Dorm Room

It's the end of August, which means it's almost move-in day for most colleges. My freshman year, I remember not wanting to spend a lot of time decorating my room, but I also wanted it to look nice. Here are five ways I managed to make my room look amazing in a quick and easy way!

1. Pillows

One thing that really made my dorm room feel put together was simply some throw pillows for my bed. It made my room feel way more organized, and it gave me a routine of setting them up every morning. I even got a few compliments on them!

2. Fairy lights

My roommates and suitemates hung up fairy lights around our room and common room, and it was one of my favorite decorations in the room. They're really pretty, and you can buy them in all different colors to match the theme of your room.

3. Wall tapestry

A lot of people hang up wall tapestries to decorate their rooms, and they're a great way to quickly make your room look really nice. Just be careful not to violate any fire codes!

4. Pictures of your friends and family

Putting up pictures of family and friends from high school is another great way to spruce up your dorm room, especially if it's your first year! If you ever get homesick, you'll have photos from home right next to you all the time. Also, you can add new pictures as you make new memories at college.

5. White board

White boards are also fun to have, because you and your roommates can write or draw whatever you want on them. You can also put one on your desk and use it to write reminders and test dates, so you won't forget!

Now, get decorating and have an amazing year!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
