Pwn (below: Various pronunciations) is a leetspeak slang term, derived from the verb "own",[1][2][3] as meaning to appropriate or to conquer to gain ownership. The term implies domination or humiliation of a rival,[4] used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated (e.g., "You just got pwned!").[5] It was popular among Counter-Strike gamers before spreading through the more general Internet world.[6] The past tense and past participle, pwned, may also be spelled: pwnd, pwn'd, pwn3d, pwnt, poned or powned.

Oh, and before you buy anything make sure you know what you can and can't bring to school. Many dorms don't allow microwaves, mini fridges, or other appliances (except through the companies they contract with).

Bring something to clean with. A mop/broom/dustpan/mini vac or something. Many dorms don't provide anything for cleaning and if you don't have it then you wind up living in dirt. Also, bring something to deal with the stale air. Most dorms don't allow candles or incense but if you want to keep same bring/make allowances to buy something.

A small fan - tower or otherwise. Again, about air circulation.

Love Rag & Bone's work. Beautiful loft. But, and this is a quibble with the description & not the owner/occupant, this is not a book-filled loft.

I'd love to see more full images and fewer vignettes. But, again, a beautiful space.

I thought Flos but the shade is matte and not gloss. I'm hoping, too, that it's not Flos expensive.

Zenpoo -- lovely. Can I find them in the US?

And Wes and Kayla - great sale!

It's gorgeous. I'm curious though about safety and privacy. I don't know if I could sleep well with all of that glass...

You did a really good job -- it looks like a different room.

One comment. I'd get rid of the ottoman. Liberate yourself from the tyranny of the coffee table!

The runway is only half usable because of their refusal to relocate. They are currently a literal stones throw away from the flight path and have to be lives an earth shaking experience.

What does this mean?

I would paint the kitchen and living area, remove that rail and replace the gold/bronze thing (i don't know what it's called) that edges the linoleum. I'd change the light fixture over the dining room table and paint the living room and fireplace brick. I'd (want to) paint the cabinets and change the hardware.

I'd look for, or maybe you have, area rugs. Finally, since you say you're handy I would want to remove those top cabinets that obstruct the view from the kitchen to the living room.

I have to do this. By "emty" you mean empty. And drug? Sigh.
