Home Away from Home

Welcome to my home away from home! My dorm room desk! I eat breakfast and occasionally lunch on it.  I do my homework on it.  I fold and iron clothes on it.  I even do my hair and makeup on it in the mornings.  I pile all the important things (like my paper due in class tomorrow....that I haven't started...) and the not so important things (like candy and cards from home) together in one space, so it's of course going to get really messy! Normally I don't really pay attention to the stuff on it, just whatever I'm doing on it. However, today I was feeling inspired by all of the vibrant colors: the greens, the reds, the yellows.  All of my junk kinda turned into something beautiful...until I remembered the reason I was sitting at my desk...to write a paper...a very boring paper.......

My mom is a sucker for cards, so she is always sending me them at random times.  Most of the time it's not even for a holiday.  I like to keep them because I hate throwing things away.  I pin them on the board behind my desk, so I see them all the time and think of her.  One says "Just Checking In," another says "There's a big gap," and another says "Do one thing everyday that scares you."  The last one is probably my favorite.  It can be pretty inspirational.
