Rearranged my bedroom again. When I left home and lived on my own, I first lived for three years on 150 sqft and then for two and a half years on 180 square foot with two crooked, jagged, slanted walls out of four. So I've gotten into the habit of rearranging and reoptimizing my space every few months or so - as soon as a new arrangement pops into my head, I can't resist spending an evening just to try it out.

Even now when I have a perfectly rectangular and spacious 140 sqft for only my bed, cloths and desk. I told my gf I've been dreaming of having a nice, big, preferably wooden bookcase, filled with hardcover books, potted plants and vinyl. She pointed out that I could move the bed over and have 7ft of wall to do just that. So I spent my evening this Monday moving everything around and Marie Kondo'ing some stuff out of the door while I was at it.

Anyway, I've ordered a bunch of books that I've loved reading already as audiobook, and I'm looking into good bookcases, which are surprisingly hard to find - there is not a lot that's decent, affordable, and stylish. There's about three styles of bookcases, apparently, and if you don't want any of those, go fuck yourself or go to IKEA. So I will probably do the latter.

In other news, it'll probably hit 107F here tomorrow. So much for a temperate sea climate. If I don't respond anymore, I'll probably be dead from a heat stroke or something.

You've got a good visual eye. Design something. Bookcases are one of those things that everyone has attempted to change but none of it sticks.
