Katherine Olaksen began college a few years ago and immediately faced a relatively universal first-year-student dilemma — how to live in a 10’ x 15’ box with a homesick roommate. Every college student faces the same quandaries — getting along with a sloppy roommate, coping with a disappointing grade, the forever-empty wallet — but who would have thought that the solution to these and many other campus woes could be in the arrangement of dorm rooms? Now, Olaksen shares her very real and practical feng shui solutions to these and other typical collegiate problems in this hip, edgy primer on using an ancient Chinese art to address one of the most challenging living arrangements of all; the cramped, chi-killing college dorm room.
Olaksen provides instant and simple feng shui cures for transforming a small, concrete block of a room into a positive and comfortable living space. And to avoid giving college kids yet another entire book to read, a quick and easy feng shui “quiz” personalizes and prioritizes areas that need attention. Packed with 99 Cent Quick Fixes, do’s and don’ts, real-life before-and-after scenarios, “dorm chi” enhancers, fool-proof solutions for the “particularly problematic”, and attitude adjusters for the most troublesome roommate, students will be ready for anything with this dorm-room companion by their sides.
