Senior living... College senior, that is!

Okay, sorry for the longer-than-planned blog hiatus. Between serving as a member of Orientation staff, getting the apartment together, getting in the groove of classes, and getting things together to get going with ZTA stuff again, I have been quite a bit busy. Just wanted to let y'all know I'm still alive and as life slows down, I'll try my best to be more consistent.

So, for my first order of business, I promised a few blog and real life friends that I would post pictures from my new apartment! Yay! I have been on campus in a dorm my past 3 years, which has its downfalls, but is mostly an excellent thing because of the community feeling here. However, as a senior you are privileged to live in what is called the "Senior Village", also on campus. The Village consists of gorgeous Charleston-style apartments with porches, rocking chairs, awesome kitchens, and beautiful wood floors and doors. AND I don't have to pay rent/utilities- it's the usual housing stuff. Awesome.

Without further waiting, I will introduce you to my humble abode! Lots of you may know Charlotte at From Carolina Cotton to Illinois Corn- one of my real life friends pre our blogging days. Charlotte is a Wofford grad, and funny enough, I am living in the same apartment she lived in her senior year- and I love it! I am so blessed to live with three of my absolute best friends this year. We all get along so well and have had a blast so far!

FINALLY ROOMIES!

see that little cute blue one? We're on the second floor!
My Bedroom

Had to show off my pinterest project- too many necklaces that are too pretty not to display!

My desk/TV area- this is my first time EVER having a TV in my bedroom- and I love watching late night Friends. 

The view of my "cube" as you walk in- cozy, but still so nice. 
 The Living Room
Amazingly enough, as we were getting things together, it seemed that each of us all had some great things to contribute. Luckily, we only had to purchase a few pieces of wall decor and a chair (that is on the way) to complete our living space!
Loving our cute chalkboard- we change the message daily! 

This awkward picture doesn't do justice to our precious dining nook!


A better look at the whole living area

Still working on this, but I love our painting and the wicker coffee table/trunk!
Our little nook with my favorite drawing of Old Main, belonging to one of my roommate's grandfathers who went to Wofford!

Lea got these precious frames at Market- I am so obsessed with them!
 The Porch!
By far, my favorite part of the apartment is our porch. We are lucky in that to access our porch you must go through our actual apartment, so we have it all to ourselves! We've got three rocking chairs and cute director's chairs that we can bring out if we have guests. Prime people watching, my friends. 

My favorite place, any time of day. 

I decided to leave out pictures of my roommate's cubes and our kitchen just because we're all sort of still in a transition phase right now. Everyone that visits says our place looks like something straight out of Pier 1, and I must agree. However, as I said, we were so lucky in that we all ended up having a couch that matched a rug that matched a lamp that matched a chair! Talk about resourceful.

Hope you enjoyed my mini tour of my humble abode! But let's be real, this is nicer than anything I'll live in a few years after graduation.

How do (or did) you decorate your apartment or dorm in college?! Happy weekend, friends!

xoxo, ryann
