5 DIY Ideas To Recreate For Your Dorm Room

Everyone loves a good DIY, am I right? Yeah, that's right.

And that's why I've selected these five tutorials to share with you. They are all relatively simple and not time-consuming. They are practical and use materials that you can find at Walmart or your local craft store. And of course, they're adorable!

1. This hip eucalyptus wall hanging. 

Wall décor can become a little pricey, so why not try your hand at making some art yourself? This particular DIY is one of my favorites because of its natural color scheme and how it incorporates multiple textures.

2. This colorful addition to any room. 

A garland is the perfect accessory to any room. You can string it with your lights, above your photo wall, or even over your door!

3. These funky geometric coasters. 

I tried out this DIY myself about a year ago, and they turned out so well. All you need is cork board (I bought a five-dollar set at Walmart), paint, and an X-Acto knife! So easy and very functional!

4. Classy planters for that garden you want to grow. 

And the best part is that you can buy whatever pattern of contact paper you want, so they are fully customizable! Also, you're helping the environment by reusing containers!

5. Adorable bookmarks for all those textbooks you’re reading (… or not). 

Simple, practical, and cute? I think yes!

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
