since this covid shit has happened, i have been sleeping like poopoo and so uncomfortable in this damn bedroom overall. when we took this apartment, it was bc i wanted my own bathroom and i loved the skylights in this room. it also didn’t hurt that i would have an entire floor to myself up here… but i didn’t really consider certain things. this bedroom is long, not wide, the ceilings are slanted, and i hadn’t realized that the closet doors were put on swinging the wrong way.
those things may seem trivial, but when you’re a person that relies on tall bookcases for all of your dvds, vhs tapes, books, mags and tchotchkes, this is not ideal with the ceilings. also: there is a fucking cubby hole in the middle of one of the walls. WHY?!
i of course found the cubby weird when i was looking at the apartment, but i didn’t consider it a problem, i thought it was a good storage spot or some shit.
i was very wrong.
anyways, last summer i turned my bed so that one side of it was on the wall, but it just didn’t feel right, so i put it back the way that i had it. i hadn’t moved the furniture across from it and it didn’t help the situation like i thought it would. i have a long bedroom and at the end of it, there’s a bathroom. every time i had to go in there, i would have to shuffle by my bed sideways to get there. it’s honestly annoying bc if i didn’t go sideways, i would touch the comforter covered in cat hair. for a person that mainly wears black, this is not ideal. this time, i faced the bed the other way head/foot-wise and adjusted everything else. i have so much walking room now. i feel like a new woman.
anyways, everyone i know is starting to go through the phase of “change” during this damn epidemic – and lots of them are doing it with their hair, lol. i mean, i fuck with my own hair on the regular, so i really don’t find it all that scary, but for regular folks, they need to channel that energy elsewhere. maybe clean out your closets or move around some furniture like i did… it made a world of difference.
