Bedrooms show students true colors

Paige Henley, freshman

“My room is NASCAR, which is one of my favorite sports to watch, and I’m a huge sports person. It tends to reflect me as an athlete. Carl Edwards is the main person in my room and I grew up watching him race which is what helped me become more of an athlete.”

“[I have a shelf] with a collection of autographed items from NASCAR drivers. I also got a painting and a very important helmet from a past family member who used to race which is also why NASCAR is such a huge deal to me, and why it’s expressed so much in my room.”

“Over the years I’ve been collecting random things and putting them in my room when I feel like it looks good. It’s a little bit of a mix of everything, it’s artsy and a place where I can put all of my stuff. I like art and I guess my room shows that.”

“I have autographs from the Julliard String Quartet and Gaelic Storm, my other favorite band. They’re important to me and I want them somewhere where I can see them and think back on the good memories from those days.”

I have a picture of me above my bed and some may call that conceited but [it isn’t] to me. I just like taking pictures and looking pretty so why not put it above my bed. I’m not shy or insecure by any means, so I think that’s reflected by the picture above my bed.”

“[I have] a little blue god on my nightstand. I’m not religious but I am Hindu, and I believe all the gods and stuff in Hinduism. [The god] on my nightstand is a little statue of young Krishna, who became known as the god of love. [He has] a little flute with him whose sounds bring all the girls to come dance with him. I just keep that with me because it’s kind of a good luck charm and provides me with a sense of protection since god is right next to me. It also makes me happy because who knew my god could be such a baller and get all the girls.”

“My room is ugly to be honest. It also has stripes. It’s a crazy mess so I guess it represents me in that way. I’m a triplet, so I try to be unique so I’m not put into like, a package deal. My room is a little more…clean and less personalized maybe. It might be because it would be a mess had I put everything I want in there, or because I’m just too lazy. Nonetheless, it’s homey, and I feel comfortable when I’m there.”

“I got the poster on a vacation with my dad [in Boston]. It still refreshed me and motivates me to work hard. The cork board itself has what inspires me on it and it feels like my life is somewhat organized when I look at it.”

“My room mainly represents my love for art, but also incorporates many photos from old memories of family or friends. [It also shows] lots of my accomplishments such as medals and my running bibs from my cross country races. I also think the colors and things I have hanging in my room reflect my personality and what I find to be most important in my life.”
