Now that I've been living in my apartment for three months, I thought I'd post an update now that I have...actual furniture!
Outside of my room - go Gophers! (Thanks for the poster, Mom!). And the letters above the bulletin board are...wait for it...needlepoint. I made them when I was eight.
Now, going into the room, you can see part of the kitchen. And the poor linoleum, which never really gets truly clean.
And there's the rest of it - the new desk, the couch/daybed, and my table and chairs!
Looking towards the bedroom from the front door.
A better shot of the desk and table.
The daybed/couch. It needs more pillows badly. But this is what I've got right now.
Another picture of the desk - love that chair!

The new bed!
I love my pintucked duvet. I really need some art, though. Badly.
My beautiful view of Ashdown (an old Boston hotel next door that is currently being renovated to be a new undergraduate dorm). I can see the Prudential Building from the window, as well!
So yeah...most awkward space ever. Still working on this, obviously. I like the idea of an old map from a school room, but I haven't come across one yet.

There we have it! Definitely not done yet...I need art, something to cover the top of the filing cabinets in the living room, a headboard, and to figure out what in the world to do with the space in my bedroom. But---it is definitely an improvement! It feels a lot more like home.
