I’m not the kind of girl who looks up her monthly horoscope, strays away from black cats, or avoids cracks in the sidewalk. Despite this lack of superstition, a certain quote really stood out to me.
The number 10 in a dream represents starting over or a new beginning. Something has ended in the way you think or in your life. It represents a fresh start or doing something differently.
10 is a very special number.
College is a fresh start. It is something new and totally different than anything you have ever experienced. I can’t think of a better way to describe this new chapter of life, or a better time to do so (on day 10!).
Your dorm room is the very beginning of the change; you new home base, command center, and safe heaven. While you may not be dreaming about your dorm, you will soon be dreaming in it!
Without further ado, here is the 10th and final post in 10 Days of Dorm, and a way to remember all the special people that fill your life back home.
At my graduation party in June, I wanted to have something for all my friends, family members, and loved ones to sign. With all the hustle and bustle of the big week, buying this special thing completely slipped my mind until about 3:55 pm. My graduation party started at 4. I grabbed the first thing I saw that would hold a pen, taped it up on the kitchen wall, and bounced over to the door where the bell had begun to ring profusely. This item happened to be a long strip of butcher paper.
To my surprise, this plain white strip became quite a hit. There always seemed to be a line of people waiting to write their special message in brightly colored magic marker.
After the party, I leaned up against the counter and gazed at my new favorite thing until every single signature and message was read. This poster was displayed on the kitchen wall until about two weeks ago (and graduation was on June 5th!) , just because we all loved it so much.
You obviously can’t do this at your graduation party (unless it’s at the end of the summer), but it would be perfect for a going away celebration, or even something to have up as your friends and family visit before the big day!
I’m bringing mine to college to decorate the inside of my closet door. Getting dressed every morning will come with extra added color and a whole lot of memories.
I hope that 10 Days of Dorm has given you lots of ideas about how to make your dorm darling without spending a pretty penny! Have a beautiful day; and may all your dreams come true.
