Three months ago, I walked across the stage at graduation. It was also the day I moved back home. I am happy to say that I am finally settling into my room and making it seem like home.
When I first moved home, I thought I would be there until August and then move. God had other plans. I didn’t want to get completely settled in and then have to move in a couple months. I am staying for the time being and I am starting to make it home.
As a college student, I didn’t life at home for more than three weeks at a time. Those three weeks were when I was home for Christmas break. I didn’t live at home during the summer. I had a job up at school both summers so I stayed up there. I am thankful my parents are letting me stay there until I figured money and everything out.
I have officially settled in and started to finally feel like it’s my room again. I haven’t cleaned out my closet since leaving for college and oh my did it need it. I gradually keep getting rid of clothes, stuff, and random papers. This past week I started my third or fourth bag for Goodwill. It feels great to have space in my closet for clothes I actually wear instead of clothes that have just sat there for who knows how long.
If you live at home for a couple days, weeks, or months during college, make the most of it. Settle in and make the space yours. You feel a lot better when you feel comfortable and relaxed when the space is how you want it. It also helps you to remember where things are around your room.
