All around me is faded light provided by the sun, I am encompassed in soft quilts and blankets that resemble sweaters. Netflix is paused, asking me, “Are you still watching ‘Grace and Frankie'” when I am actually typing, listening to the click of my keys on my keyboard. There is clean laundry everywhere, and a hint of coconut in the air from my wall plug-in.
This assignment helped me observe my space better, and I learned that I need to be more descriptive in my writing. When I truly observe something is when I feel most in touch with my surroundings, and I usually find things I never would have noticed if I was carrying on with my daily life.
