Sample Answer 1
Getting influenced by peer pressure is undoubtedly a real thing. In my case, all of my friends have opulent study rooms, except me. So, after convincing my parents for a long time, they finally agreed to set up one for me. Fortunately, I live in a 3BHK apartment, and my parents decided to renovate one room as my study room. Although the room is small, it still accommodated a study table, a computer table, a huge bookshelf and a recliner sofa.
Since I got complete access to my study room after its renovation, I’ve been spending 10-12 hours daily in this room. There are plenty of things I bought online to embellish this room. To begin with, it has frames with motivational quotes hanging on the wall. In addition, my bookshelf not only has textbooks but novels from famous authors that I like reading in my free time.
Furthermore, on the study table, I have organised stationery items, including files and folders and some boxes to keep small things intact. The computer table is placed next to the study table, and it has my laptop, an extension board and some chargers.
Right from studying to napping, binge-watching series and movies, spending quality time in this room – I do everything here.
- Fantasize: to think about something very pleasant

Eg: The painting is adding an oomph factor to the room.
- Stay indoors: staying home
Eg: She decided to stay indoors and have fun.
Sample Answer 2
I always fantasized about having a study room that I could decorate on my own. Coming from a middle-class family, it would be selfish on my part to demand something which will cost my parents a fortune. But fortunately, my wish got fulfilled in class 6. After my sister’s marriage, I finally got room to call my own. It was a small room to accommodate a single bed, a study table, and a bookshelf.
I spend most of my time there. However, since it is the pandemic, I prefer to stay indoors. I study there, take naps or binge-watch web series or movies in my free time. I complete my necessary tasks like my pending assignment preparation and often engage myself in painting. This has been my hobby since I was a kid. Sometimes I gossip with my friends who come to visit me.
My study table is connected with the bookshelf, decked up with books. I keep my laptop on the table beside the study table. The room has an attached balcony to go out and get fresh air if you ever need it. Due to the covid situation, I don’t usually stay on the balcony for a longer time.
Though my room is small, I have decorated it well. I have tons of aesthetic decoration ideas, which I gathered from the Pinterest app. For example, one side of the wall is decorated with personalised polaroid pictures attached by LED lights adding an oomph factor. Another part of the room is pretty simple, but I try my best to keep it clean and tidy.

Being part of a joint family has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. While we get pampered by each elder member, lack of privacy is a common loss. So, growing up, I never had an opportunity to have a private study room. But, the one we had was spacious enough to be occupied by ten children of the family, each of different ages.
Honestly, the room where we studied in the early morning before going to school and in the evening did its overtime as the dining room during meals, the living room when visitors arrived and the bedroom when guests were present. Therefore, the total duration we spent in the room is longer than we spent studying in it, which is two hours in the morning and around three hours in the evening, as mentioned before.
As the room was used for multiple reasons, it never had permanent furniture other than a sofa for visitors, which was again shifted when guests were there. As a result, when we used it as a study room, my grandmother laid down two large carpets for us to sit on and we carried our books and other necessities with us.
As the room was almost vacant, there were lots of things hung on the wall. I still remember the branching family tree on the east wall, which began with our great grandfather and grandmother on the top, enhanced with each new addition. On the north wall was a cupboard that showcased the merits of the family members. As the south wall was mostly empty and there was no wall in the west, we had permission to exhibit our creativity by using it as the blackboard. Now that I am in a different city for my job, I miss my so-called ‘study room’ and the memories that we created there.
