I try and give myself a bit of a fresh start by rearranging my room. Changing my environment in that way is one of the most satisfying things that I do for myself. Every time that I rearrange my room I think, "This is so much better! I like it so much more!". I imagine that people who move a lot must get a similar feeling when they rearrange their things into a new space, and relax into their new environment.
I have two and a half semesters left at Pratt, and the thought of where I am going to live often crosses my mind. My hope is that I will find a job in New York and either move somewhere more convenient, or stay where I am now. I think the hardest thing about moving will be leaving behind the community. That is what makes me feel the safest, to recognize people when I pass them, to know my way around, know the good places to eat, and the places to stay away from. I think I fall somewhere in-between the compulsive movers and those who are frozen by a fear of change, but I'm glad to have a year and a half left to rearrange my room.
