Lots of kids head to college their freshman year hoping to make a splash and a big impression on people to find new friends or just to fit in.
But Lindy Goodson and Abby Bozeman, two Ole Miss freshman, took things to a whole new level that’s not just getting them noticed around campus, but around the country.
They designed and built a dorm room that looks like something out of a Barbie dream house.
After meeting on social media, they decided to be roommates in December, then immediately got to work on their dorm room design plans.
Said Bozeman, “She lives in Illinois and I live in Mississippi, so it was like a long distance thing. We really weren’t sure everything was going to go together, but then we got here, and it does.”
They say that everyone in their building decorates their dorm, but it’s hard to believe that anyone could come close to what these two have built.
In fact, that was sort of the plan all along!
“It’s really competitive,” she said. “So I was like, we definitely have to make ours look good. A lot of them here are done up.”
The pics went up on Twitter and people assumed it was some sort of corporate project or a joke that they didn’t get. Nope. That’s just their dorm room.
They got lots of love…
Some admissions of envy…
And praise from people they’ve never even met.
And because this is the internet, some people were tossing a little shade at the two for their princess-like digs.
This girl has a point, but something tells me they’ve got the cleaning supply thing taken care of.
Lindy said that as wild and extravagant as it looks, it was all done on the cheap with some hard work, and there’s a practical plan in place for when they move out in a year.
“We’re living here for a year,” she said. “We can reuse stuff, and my younger sister is going to reuse a lot of stuff.”
