As an extension of the tour of my bookshelf I did a while back, I'm going to give you a tour of my room. I figure it's a good way to expand your understanding of me and my life. I shall take pictures and then give you an explanation. Pardon whatever messiness you do see, if you will. Allonsy!
Here is your first picture of the day! Sorry for this one, it's small and blurry. Anyway, at the very top, you can see my wind-chime dreamcatcher, hanging from a random hook in the ceiling. No idea why there's a hook in my ceiling. To the left is my picture of Peeta Mellark, underneath a dreamcatcher I myself made. To the right is my calendar. At the bottom is my beautiful bed, where you can sort of see a book. I believe it's The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm.
Here we are again, a little further down. My calendar is on the left, then I have a mismash of things on the wall to the right. Starting on the lefter side, there's the little embroidered circle hanging my mom made for me when I was born, with my name and birthdate on it, followed by a picture of the LDS temple near Centralia, Washington, above which is a random painting of mountains I made in seventh grade, below which is a MormonAd basically saying you have to be prepared and have on the armor of God because the enemy isn't resting. Furthest right is a frame holding a compilation of my work with The Paw Print at Adams State, which was a gift from the head editors. At the bottom of this picture is my bed, on which you again see the book along with the laptop on which I am currently writing this. In the very bottom right corner is a peek at my bedside table, which I believe is next...
So here is the bedside table. On the top left is my alarm clock, below which is a nice little pencil next to some chapstick, because I have a chapstick problem, below which is a mug. I got that mug from a friend and it says something about writing on it. I don't remember what. Then you have my iPod, above which is a stack of diaries. The diaries on my bedside table are always comprised of diaries I need to type up and diaries I'm still writing. The top one there is the one I'm writing in (or was, in September), which is on top of a very old diary of my grandmother's that I'm typing up in order to do a little publishing thing for our family, below which are two of my own diaries I need to type. Then beside those you've got a DVD that my autistic brother made about autism, and then you've got my beautiful medications.
Here is my diary chest, at the foot of my bed. It is very broken and I had to put a kitty blanket over because the top is missing. Inside are all of my old diaries that have been typed up, which amounts to almost 70 at this point. There are also photo albums and yearbooks in there. On top here is my hair straightener, because sometimes I really need that, a notepad-ish, a voice recorder for when I make audio files of my novels for my mom, sunglasses a friend gave me, and the tiara I wore to Prom. At the very right, you can see the chair I sit on when I practice cello. Fascinating I'm sure.
Beside that chair is a window, in which, in this picture, I have an air conditioner. Don't need that one right now. At the very edge there on the left, you can see I think the leg of a stuffed lamb toy my dad got in New Zealand. On the other edge of the window is a kiwi Beanie Baby, because Kiwi is one of my nicknames. Then you've got my dresser, which has a bunch of clothes and makeup stuff in it. On top, going from left to right, is a dolphin stuffed animal, a conch shell my other grandmother gave me, a giant Avon makeup kit, two portraits of ancestors from my deceased grandmother, a First Aid kit, and the edge of my memory box and a fan.
So there's the fan, which is blocking your view of the memory box. Next to that box I have two pairs of movie 3D glasses, one from the last Harry Potter movie which you currently cannot see, and one from Man of Steel, which you can. Then you've got my slightly broken jewelry box, and the little duct-tape area where you've got my contact container and saline solution. Lovely, I know.
All right. Here I backed up so you could see the wall behind my dresser, where I've got a photo collage of sorts from my babyhood to the present. It runs in that little wave from left to right, and then loops to cut across the wave from right to left in a line. With this view you can also actually see the memory box on the dresser a bit, along with the little china doll atop my jewelry box. And then on the right is my beautiful exercise bike.
I know how desperately you wanted this view: the floor underneath that wall, by the exercise bike. You've got a bunch of school supplies, basically, including my printer and some cough drops, and a cat food dish, and then on the right is my messenger bag I use for school and church, which is sitting atop some church literature in this picture.
Here's the adjoining wall, where you've got my door outside my room to the left, followed on the ground by my library book bag. Then there's my TV stand, which has a nice old TV with satellite, underneath which is some recording equipment and a heater, underneath which is some shoes you can't really see. In front of that is another TV, which has an actual operating DVD player and also which I use for college, which I've got propped up on some Playdoh and Sour Apples to Apples. Moving to the right you've got my favorite sandals, the glorious kitty litter box, and the closet doors.
Here's a small and blurry picture of my closet, with a peek in at some of my clothes. They're organized by color. On that shelf on the top is a bunch of bags with unseasonal clothes and holiday decoration stuff.
So, along the next wall, here's my music corner. You've got my cello and my guitar leaning against the wall. In front of them is a box full of music that also has my rockstop and rosin in it, beside which are two stands, one of which is in pieces. On the standing stand (haha) is an Adams State bag, and underneath it you can just see my favorite blue guitar pick. To the right is a box full of stuff I intend to give away, and on the edge you can see my window drapes and the side of my music CD shelf.
Here's the beautiful bookshelf, next to the CD shelves and in front of the window. On top of it from left to right we've got air freshener, picture of Hermione I won at the release of the last book, candle, fake flowers, little statuette, real flower in honor of my grandma in a water bottle, cup of water, my Kirsten American girl doll. On the shelves we've got books along with kitty stuffs. On the floor in front of the bookshelf is a folder of random papers, a toy cello, a paper of taking care of neutered cats, and a clock. On the right side of the bookshelf is a pile of library books to read and my lamp. And that takes us around my entire room!
Here's an obligatory picture of my floor. Towards the top, on the left of the table, is my makeup bag, my scriptures, and my laptop case. In front of the table is my pajamas, cat toys, and wallet, Inside the table is a metronome, my gum stash, a bunch of technology wire stuff, fibromyalgia care stuff, and then on the right is a trashcan. And of course front and center is the kitten I was fostering back during the summer/fall, Oliver, striking a very sexy pose for you viewers. He was adopted maybe almost a month ago, which was kind of tragic for me, but he's happy.
So there you go, a tour of my room. I hope you enjoyed that. I do like my room, although it could use a new carpet badly, lol. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you next time for a special post in celebration of Catching Fire and the Doctor Who 50th, both occurring this weekend!
Did you enjoy my beautiful room and the sexy Oliver?
