An Ode To My Bed


Today’s post is a little bit different. It is a creative piece that I wrote in my senior year of college. Although senior year was last year, one thing has not changed. I still love my bed. I hope you enjoy this relatable post about the love of a girl for her bed.

It’s been a very long and very rainy day. On the way to class, you fell into a huge puddle and now your leggings are soaked. On this dreary walk, you realize you forgot to submit your assignment for class and when you arrive at the food court, the salad bar line is out the door. Although it has been a bad day, there is one thing that makes it all okay.

When I come home at night, I always look forward to coming home to one special thing. It is always there for me and makes me feel comfortable. It never judges me for eating pizza and watching Netflix. It lets me stay with it for hours on end. It welcomes me after a long night of being out with friends, and it makes me feel warm on the coldest of nights. I cannot live without it. I love my bed, and there are a plethora of reasons why.

#1 Comfort

Beds are the most comfortable things ever, and they are similar to little clouds. If you look for any student on this campus, they can most likely be found in their bed.

#2 Naps

Naps are great at any time of day and beds are the best because it is where the ultimate lazy girl gets to nap. Any bad mood can vanish with the help of a nap.

#3 Rainy Days in Bed

The room is dark, and the pitter-patter of rain is heard on the windowsill. The urge to leave your bed is non-existent, and Netflix is ready to be played on the computer with snacks to munch on during the episode.

#4 Safe Haven when Sick

Colds are the absolute worst, and the perfect place to rest and fight the cold is in bed. Sniffles and aches are much more bearable when resting in a comfortable cloud of a bed.

#5 The Moment of Satisfaction after a Night Out

Your feet burn after a night out in heels, and the alarm clock says 1 am. Your belly is full with French fries after a late night snack, and as you enter your bed, you breathe a sigh of relief. It is bedtime.

#6 New Sheets

New sheets plus shaved legs equals happiness.

#7 Cuddling

Beds are the locations of cuddles, and not only cuddles from other people, but cuddles from dogs, cats, stuffed animals and huge body pillows also take place on beds. Who doesn’t love cuddles?

#8 Pillows

Home décor is so much fun to look at on Pinterest and pillows are the best home décor for bedrooms and beds. There are so many different kinds of pillows, such as pillows for Christmas time or any season specific pillows, fuzzy pillows, satin pillows and even pillows you can get your mom of your face on it (tacky but hey mom approved!)

#9 A College Student’s Favorite Place

Beds are great for sleep, naps, snacks, Netflix, talks with roommates, cuddles with significant others and life contemplations. Thanks for always being there for me, bed. This one is for you.
