When I first came to Perth, I stayed at a residential college for an entire year. At the college, we get our individual rooms, we had 3 meals fully prepared for us, washrooms cleaned, and room service once a week. It was pretty much a very comfortable, and sadly, a lazy life since I did not get to do many chores which a normal house would require. Yes, convenience was provided to the maximum and the environment was extensively conducive for university studies life. I had a great time there, met people from all around the globe and learned plenty of awesome stuff during my stay, but of all the people that come and go, usually there was one universal complaint.
The individual room was just too small.
Well, not exactly that small to me, honestly the room in the residential college was slightly larger than my own room at home in Malaysia.
After a year, I moved out with some beautiful people and rented a place very near to the university. Life changed ever since, and the most significant change was the size of the room. It was almost 3 times LARGER than the college room. It was sweeeeeeeeeeeet !!! I mean, having so much space, and somehow, it just gave me a sense of freedom.
Beyond That Door Knob
I stayed in that HUGE room for more than a year, and given all dramas and traumas that happened last year, I returned to Kuching for half a year, completing my professional practicum and fulfill all the criteria to graduate as an engineer from this miserable university. So yeah I was away from my room, but a good friend has been taking over my place, and keeping that place for me.
But now, I have returned to Perth.
And many people have been asking where I am staying. I am still at the old house. When I came in not too long ago, I had to share my old room with this good friend of mine whom had stayed in all the while I was gone. Well, technically, it was not my room anymore, since that friend paid the rent and all while I was gone, but I was grateful and lucky enough to have someone to let me in and crash for the time being while I get everything done. Wait, it was my room... MY HUGE ROOM !!
The Kind of Books I Read.... SADNESS...
You see, everyone treasures their privacy, and that includes me. By sharing your room with someone, you can't watch porn
while beating it off whenever you want. You can't blast your music all you want, and believe me, sometimes I blast my music to sleep. You can't sleep at anytime you want, and you can't pretty much have that much privacy in phone conversations, let alone MSN chatting !! I could not blog at peace, I am so used to blog alone. Heck, I can't even walk naked all I want. Yes, I do walk naked around my room. What? No ones watching ok?
Of course, those who have shared room with others people will understand the issues, not to mention other things like hygience and sharing common stuff and agreement on basic stuff and everything...... oh it just never stops.
But do not get me wrong, nothing happened between me and my friend. We pretty much compromised on everything and we do enjoy having each others company for the past few weeks. Ok, that sounds very, very inappropriate, now do not even DARE to think of anything weird happening behind the four walls. We are perfectly normal friends, nothing more than that, and he was kind enough for me to bunk over at the meantime. I mean.. heck, it used to be my room ok !! MINE !
My M:Robe and Lappie
Until recently, one of my housemates moved out to another house. Then, there was a vacant room, which was situated at the back of the house, on the way passing to the bathroom, laundryroom and toilet. Every night as I walked pass that room to take a piss or before taking a warm shower before bed, I felt as if the empty room was calling to me. Spooky eh? Yes, you heard that right, I felt this attraction coming from the room, and the more I thought about it, the more I realize that it was time to move out from my old room.
There was only one tiny disadvantage. This room, is waaaaay smaller than my previous HUGE room, infact, even smaller than the residential college room which I used to stay in for one year !!
But I decided that I want to have a room of my own. I want my full privacy. I want to blast my speakers anytime I choose to, even to sleep if I want to.
I want to wank to my porn collection anytime I decided, and I made that decision happen.
I managed to move all the furnitures and had the room ready in three hours. Talk about will power !! Hmmmmpph.
Here, have a look of what I have done with the room, and do give your suggestions and feedback.
Looking From My Bed
My Study Table
My Self Arranged Shelves/racks
It seriously felt so comfortable in that room, despite the tiny size. I actually enjoyed the change of size for once !! It was actually getting too crowded in the previous room, so yeah, now I can breathe more freely again. I have a space of my own ! How sweeeeeeeeeet.
My Soft Warm Comfy Bed
Don't you guys think there is something missing in that picture?? RIGHT !!! What is a bed without simply ROBIN Cam-whoring on it right? Right?
Cam-Whoring in My New Room
Aaaahhhhh... I forgot to mention earlier, I could not cam-whore at peace with another witness in the same room !!! Now, I can cam-whore ALL I want, Muahahhahahahahahahahhahahaaa....... Total sweeeeeetness.
So guys, do let me know what you think of what I did to my room so far. It is kept simple and neat. I do not intend to turn it into something too fancy or over-decorated. I just want some place comfortable, a place of my own, a place where I truly can find peace at any time of the given day. Of course, at the moment, I am still working on improving the appearance and all, I have just moved in for a few days. But yeah, you get the whole main layout.
So anyone wanna come play with me on my bed?
