Transform Your Space into a Sanctuary in 5 Simple Steps
In college, your room is your only real retreat from school-related stress and social pressure. As such, it's important to transform your living space into your own personal sanctuary.
I didn't fully understand this as a freshman, so I had to learn the hard way sophomore year, when I had a roommate with an entirely different aesthetic and energy than my own. It's hard to live with someone who contradicts who you are.
Before college, I shared a room with my sister for years and attended boarding school, so I've experienced it all (almost): the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Here are a few tips for turning your room into a stress-free sanctuary, on a budget. You don't need thousands of dollars to transform your environment into the perfect space for you. At the end, I'll also provide advice about staying sane when you have to share your space with another person.
