Though I’d love to keep a good-looking house, my budget’s not about that, so my room will never look as great as Jhumpa Lahiri’s. That’s a shame, since I’m sure with a house that lovely my Pulitzer-winning book would pop right out. If I weren’t broke, though, here’s what I’d get:
- A wooden desk that’s weathered but in a nice way, with enough room for a laptop, notebook, and a ton of food. The kind that fits right in at a trendy coffee shop.
- A quality laptop (light and powerful with a gorgeous screen) and a printer with infinite ink and paper.
- All the books I could want, but not on a bookshelf; instead they’d be stacked on the floor or on small tables/nightstands. The sort of ordered chaos that helps a room feel lived-in.
- A large, comfortable chair in which I could read all these books, alongside other tasteful and distinctive furnishings.
- Breathtaking artwork all along the walls for my creative edification.
- 30 Precise V7 black pens (the only pens I write with) stored in an empty Starbucks cup with my name on it.
- The perfect cream sweater and dark blue jeans, in multiples since I’ll be too busy being a creative genius to choose new outfits every day. A Burberry trench coat wouldn’t hurt either.
- Leaving in a week. Getting everything together last-minute as usual but I’m pretty excited.
- I’m applying to work at my school’s writing center 🙂
- Music Tip 1: taking advantage of Amazon Digital sales is a good way to build up one’s music library.
- Music Tip 2: an even better way is taking advantage of amazing and legally free albums such as Telefone by Noname and HEAVN by Jamila Woods.
- Today I learned that while I was wrong to think eating a vegan meal would kill me, I was right to think it would be lackluster.
