    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.

    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 shits 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.
