How to make a room feel more homey (also, Zoidberg)

One of the best thing about buying our house was the swag that came with it.  That mirror?  Totally found it just sitting in the closet.  Totally worth the stress and cost of homebuying, obviously.  Kids, buy a home; it comes with FREE STUFF.

Anyway, now that I'm done with school I can finally read read read read read.  This basically translates to checking out a trillion library books and letting them pile up as I read a chapter of each and waffle around from book to book.  I am the bumblebee of book commitment, buzz buzz.

This may sound like a no-brainer, but in rearranging things to make room for the new housemates, I have discovered that having some of the bookshelves in the bedroom makes it feel 100% more lived-in and more homey.  So even though moving and splitting up the office shelves was (while a familiar library task) an annoying home chore, in the end, I ended up much happier with the outcome than I had originally anticipated.

At this point, the only thing I feel I need to get done is a proper set of beanbag/cornhole.  Everyone and their dog seems to have one, but I do not, and this is something that needs to be fixed STAT.  It's already nearing the end of July and I have yet to lounge on my front stoop throwing beanbags.  This is a problem.  So the first month's rent money is definitely going to a) washer & dryer and b) cornhole supplies.  These are household essentials.

I just have to figure out what design I want (for the cornhole set, not the washer/dryer, PRIORITIES PEOPLE I HAVE THEM).  I'm thinking a Zoidberg-theme would be faaaaaaabulous.  Because why not Zoidberg?
