Two freshmen roommates at Ole Miss, Lindy Goodson and Abby Bozeman, have transformed the dungeon that freshmen typically inhabit into a Pinterest-worthy princess pad. Cute, gals!
“It’s really competitive,” Goodson told BuzzFeed News, of Ole Miss dorm décor culture. “So I was like, we definitely have to make ours look good. A lot of them here are done up.”
I am so happy for these young women, seriously. Go girls! The thing is, though, that they are still freshwomen which means that they and the people around them are going to behave like tavern goblins with no respect for property or boundaries.
One minute these women are going to be wrapping themselves in their matching pashminas and settling onto their tuffets for a Friday evening showing of The Holiday (because Abby hasn’t seen it) when “Adam” from down the hall will stop by to introduce “Chris,” the 17-year-old prospective swim team recruit visiting for the weekend, and you’ll say “Hi,” and go back to the movie. But then six hours later a now blotto “Chris” is gonna wander in with Adam nowhere to be seen and urinate all over the fluffy white area rug and by the way you can’t wash those as Abby’s mom kept reminding everyone in the 7283-message planning email thread!!!
Luckily, my freshman dorm was an un-sheeted mattress floating in the middle of a two-foot high pile of clothing, so no real damage was doable.
