When you think of a teenager’s room, images from one of many coming of age movies come to mind; dark, dirty, dusty, and dank. An unmade bed, stinky socks, rotting food, and all kinds of things you don’t even want to know about! Thankfully, at least for now, there has yet to be a time when I have actually been revolted by my teenage daughter’s room. Sure, her room can be an unkempt mess of dirty laundry, shoes, make-up, school books and papers, but even in its worst state, there are plenty of things about my daughter’s room that I really truly love.
Intrigued by the Do Not Enter Diaries, an online video series where teens share a glimpse into their rooms while in turn sharing even more about themselves (I’m hoping my daughter will share one with them one day), I decided to take a closer look at her bedroom and what it communicates about her. I will say that through this perspective, I have found it not only easier to look past the mess, I’ve found even more things about my daughter to be proud of and thankful for.
