Although my room in residence is small, it is very cozy. On the single
bed under the window is a spread quilted by my grandmother
before her death. It is my most treasured possession. Beside the bed
is a small bookcase filled with my books and papers. The bookcase
is painted white, and the top and sides have a pattern of vines
running over them, stenciled in green. Next to the bookcase is a
small antique armchair from my grandmother's house. The chair is
upholstered in a rich cream brocade material, sprinkled with tiny
pink roses. Over the chair is a framed photograph showing my
family's summer camp. In the picture, the sun is setting beyond the
hills, which look blue in the distance, under a pink and gold sky.
Against the wall opposite the bed is my desk, painted white like the
bookcase and covered with more books, papers, pens, and pencils,
while on the floor between the bed and the desk is an oval hooked
rug in varied shades of blue, green, and rose. The residence is old
and crumbling, and the hall outside my room is dingy and dark, but
my room itself is always a bright and welcoming haven for my many
friends and me.
