Hello people, I have been living in some basement room for the past few months. at first, i LOVED it and stayed in here for weeks straight and only stepped out a couple of hours every other day for a while cos of it. that life style didnt last very long cos of certain obligations (i.e lab, lectures, and what not.) im a practical sort of person with an iota sense of aesthetics... so i was quite content with the little furniture i have and even creating "furniture" out of boxes and random stuff that i compiled into something useful. the problem is... for the past several weeks i developed this strange phobia of my room that i can't explain. its really bizarre and i dont quite understand it. i would sleep ar rather unconvential places (under the round oak table in a chem classroom, the rooftop of the music dept. or just not sleep at all!)just to avoid my room. there is a limit to how much sleep deprivation the human body can stand, ya know? my room has a depressing feel. i have some of my paintings on the walls (most are at my parent's house though), i have pictures of my "patron saints" (pauling, bohr, godel etc.), and various other things... but... last week i bought a robot to cheer up the place. -that worked for like a day or two. i was like a child on christmas morning! today i cleared and organized the piles of cluttered paper and books... and rearranged my room. im satisfied with that progress. actually, rearranging my room and putting away the clutter has made a big difference- im in my room as i type... :) but there is something missing. so, my question is... does anybody have any decorating tips? (i live in one room, and i have a bathroom. so, my living room, bedroom, office...is just one big room ) if you like your room, why? what cool things do you have in your room? how can i make my lving space less... depressing? why the hell would one have such irrational sentiments about their living space anyway??!?! i really dont understand my neurotic thing i have about my room. <sigh> madness.
