A room of one's own

In 1929, Virginia Woolf published an extended essay, based on her lectures at a women's college at Cambridge University in 1928. One of the many questions Woolf ponders in this book is whether or not a female writer could produce art of the high quality of Shakespeare. She agrees it's possible, but she says:
 "a woman must have a room of her own if she is going to write."
I love that quote. It speaks to me. It tells me of freedom and of independence.

I'm currently in a state of gloom and doom. I ACTUALLY can't wait to start school.
I realised I have more freedom then. So please please let school start soon!
