Activity Time Lapse (2 stars)

I was super excited to see that this was an option to use for one of the assignments this week. This past July, my lease started on the house I am renting this year for my senior year at Mary Washington. I have been so excited to get all of my things in my room and build all of my furniture and most importantly… to decorate!

A few weeks ago, my parents took me to Ikea and helped me pick out a bed frame, a bedside table, and a mattress. What I didn’t think about was how LONG it would take us to put it together. Although there is directions included, it is essentially gibberish and always easier said than done. This video total is about 30 seconds, but trust me when I say that it took us close to an hour to put it all together. There was definitely a few times that we had to back track and rebuild some pieces. It was hard to focus with my mom barking directions from the blueprints, my dads Yacht rock radio on Sirius XM playing in the background, and my peanut sized attention span.

It is safe to say that if my parents were not there, I would not have been able to finish it efficiently or I would fall through in my sleep. After we finished building all of the furniture it was finally time to decorate. I got to put on my floral sheets and throw pillows to spice it up. Not featured in the time lapse is the prints that I picked for my wall that had to get hung, my curtains, and all of the nick nacks that I had saved up from my past 3 years at Mary Washington. Even though I am back home with my family, friends, and working, I am counting down the days until I can be up in my new room!
