As promised, I have finally unpacked and organized my room enough that I am ready to share some pictures with all of my amazing followers! (Granted, these were taken with my iPhone and the lighting was a bit of a struggle but I hope they still show up okay!) I love my new room, it was so much fun to decorate it and start from scratch now that I am finally out of the dorms and living in an amazing house with some of the greatest people I’ve ever met.
I knew living with 7 of my closest friends would be fun, but I never could have imagined it would be like this! It’s wild, crazy, and definitely messy but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I literally feel like I spend more time sitting on my front porch with my housemates than any other spot; we’re averaging like 6 hours a day at this point, and even more on the weekends! Thank god for our new porch swing!
Oxford is an adorable college town, and one of its most well-known quirks is that all of the student houses have fun names. Some of them play off of the street they sit on, such as “Spoiled Beeches” on Beech Street, and others are just fun party names like “Fraturdays” (one of my favorites because it has a Vineyard Vines whale on the house sign). There’s been a lot of debate about the origins of my house name, but its been that way for as long as we can remember – my house is over 70 years old! (The sensitive plumbing and lack of central air serve as proof for that).
Still, you can’t beat this house. We live literally a one minute walk from uptown and all of the bars, and a two minute walk from the library. Our house is situated as close to the center of campus and Oxford as you can be!
