I won't be decorating my room too much, just taking a few bits and pieces from home which will make it a bit nicer and more personal, e.g. my cushion with a print of my cat on it, a few of my fossils & crystals, stuff like that

What kind of fossils and crystals you have? This is a nice idea in fact

Effort tbh. I'm not a sentimental type of person so all those momentos and pictures from childhood etc don't particularly mean much/won't add much to my living in halls.

Might get a poster and some lights tho.. Maybe a lava lamp for the bants.

I'm probably not going to do much or any decorating. Maybe a poster or two, but even then I'll have to find non damaging adhesive (not blutac) and I don't know if I can be bothered. I might put up my 'encouragement page' on the noticeboard, which is basically some pics of my character crushes and favourite singers haha. Otherwise I just have cool bed covers; one with the London Tube, and the other with space/astronaut cats. I don't have any pictures or anything I want to bring. I have a phone and laptop for that!

I've got quite a few different fossils, most of which I've found (e.g. ammonites, belemnites, and bits of crinoids), but I also have a few which I've bought (e.g. a mosasaurus tooth, a brachiopod, a pyritic (golden) ammonite, a polished orthoceras and a mammoth tusk fragment which I was given as a present). The crystals I've got are all shop bought, and I like all of them but I think I will take my large citrine cluster, small amethyst cluster and a few of my favourite tumblestones, like my tiger iron and labradorite. I've got quite a big collection so I'm trying to pick just a few specimens

I feel the same way.

I've bought a cactus to spice things up a bit, though I'll probably end up stepping on it but at least it'll make life a bit more interesting.

I have to steal this idea

A lot of places won't allow: candles, fairy lights, plug adaptors, change of curtains, incense sticks, 'offensive' images in shared spaces. Still leaves plenty of scope.

Last year I was the only one in my flat to leave with a completely blank wall. Don't see the point when I spent so little time in there anyway....

For the bants, for the ***** and giggles, for the hell of it are all figures of speech indicating that I'm doing it 'just because'.

My room comes with boat oars hanging on the walls, so I think I'll stick with that.

In my first year I didn't really decorate much cause my room was so small.

Currently though, I have a nice rug and a nice tapestry. I'm looking into getting an indoor plant, maybe a bonsai tree or something small and cute.
