Chapter 2: Stiflingly Airless and Chapter 3: Desperate Times


Oh yeah, my lazy ass is still committed to this theme.  Welcome to Niki’s Bedroom Floor Plans: A History 2, this time with actual posts!

Floor Plan 2: Stiflingly Airless

Sheet color:dark purple, gray, white

Lasted: approximately 7 months (less one month in the middle)

After my debacle-y first night of sleep with the bad energy and the awful feng shui, I got some book cases and then moved my furniture to look like this:

it made sense to me at the time

I think I chose this set-up because it was the only way to get a truly unobstructed path to the window, which was something I felt was really very important.  Plus my childhood bedroom had a slanty ceiling over the headboard of my childhood bed, so this felt very natural to me.

I also quite early on bought a new set of sheets in gray, after deciding that for sure dark sheets gave me nightmares.  I mean, the evil spirits were trying to STEAL MY ENERGY when I slept on the purple sheets – I had to do something about it.

Things went okay for a little while, but this furniture arrangement happened in the middle of the summer when it was very, very hot out.  The floor plan reacted to the summer weather, unfortunately, like this:

do you SEE that cloud?

Each night as I tried to sleep, the cool breeze would sail right by me, leaving my sad little corner of the room completely untouched by anything resembling circulating air.  I was literally whimpering with discomfort by mid-July…

…which brings us to…

Floor Plan 3: Desperate Times

Sheet Color:gray, white

Lasted: 1 month

One hot night just before bed (in a desperate, feverish state) I did this with my furniture:

silliest but most satisfying set-up yet

I kept my furniture this way for about a month – during the hottest time of the summer.  It was super impractical because you actually couldn’t get to the window AT ALL except by climbing over the bed, but still I was as close to the air from the window as this bedroom would allow.

Plus I got white sheets – even lighter than gray! – to minimize the effect of evil spirits on my dream-state.

When the air cooled at the end of the summer, I kept the white sheets and then returned my bed to Position #2 for until Christmas-time.

More on that in Chapter 4.  Coming soon.
