#12 - TGS's Rush of Happy Color

Name: Two grad students
Location: Ithaca, NY
Type: 1-bedroom, rented

Why I use color:

Grad school can be depressing at times, especially in a place with
long, snowy winters. We try to maintain a surrounding that keeps us
maximally happy, and color is something we've always loved...

After hours in the lab, it's nice to come home to a warm, cheery space. Also, paint is doable on grad student stipends (with an understanding landlord).
