New Discoveries All the Time

Is it weird that I just discovered my bedroom has an overhead light?

To be fair, while we've been in the apartment for a little over a year and a half I've only been in this bedroom for a few months. Still, though, I had no clue it was there.

I even had a light switch on the wall that baffled me. It didn't control any outlet in the room. I'm now guessing that's because it controls this little ceiling light whose bulb probably burned out a long time ago.

I'm not sure that this discovery will really affect how I light my room. That fixture is in a pretty random entry location to the bedroom, and not near anything useful.

But how odd to be walking to the bathroom and all of a sudden say, "Interesting. My bedroom has a light in the ceiling."
