“He left the drapes open, watched the lights of the cars and of the fast food joints through the window glass, comforted to know there was another world out there, one he could walk to anytime he wanted.”
― Neil Gaiman, American Gods
I know you probably won’t believe me, but my room right now has no windows.
Once upon a time it did have some, but when my grand parents added on an addition to their house, it ended up being taken out. Now it’s a hallway of sorts, that connects the front to the back of the house.
It can get really claustrophobic in there and sometimes it gets unbearably hot. But the worst part about living in it, is the lack of windows. It’s like I am completely cut off from the world, trapped in a dungeon.
Which is why I have a new personal goal #RoomwithaWindow2018.
It means for me to keep moving forward. The next chapter of my life is to move out and when that happens, i’ll have a room with a window to call my own.
It may not seem like a big deal to most people, but I bet those people have rooms with windows.
For now, I have decorated it to be more cozy.
I am starting to learn more and more about myself and what I love. Right now I have a tapestry from Society6, and some lights. I try to make the best out of my current situation. However, I still want more.
That’s the beauty of it I think. Being able to enjoy and love what you have but to always strive for more. To always want to better your situation if you can.
#RoomwithaWindow2018 is my way of making my situation better, even if I am grateful for what I have right now.
If you would like to purchase this tapestry or find one of your own, you can do so here.

You did a great job of working with what you had! Very cozy. I couldn’t imagine not having a window!
Good to see you made this situation into something positive! I couldn’t imagine being in a room with no Windows for a long time.
Yeah its definitely something you have to get use to!
It must be hard having no windows! I think I could do it but….I don’t know! I like fresh air in the morning too much to live somewhere with no windows! The first thing I do in the morning is open them and just take a good breath of air! You did awesome decorating your room
The first thing I do every morning is open the curtains and windows. I cannot imagine being in a windowless room. All the very best for #RoomwithaWindow2018 🙂
I couldn’t imagine no windows. Of course I have way too many phobias and would always be scared I wouldn’t be able to get out. However that is a great goal you have!
Thank you! Yeah it took a little getting to at first, but once I did I just decided to make the best of it!
Looks super cozy and I love the message- moving/looking forward is key
Thank you! Always forward never back!
I love what you did without windows! great ideas!
