Project 52: ten

This desk is, quite frankly, disgusting.

And yet it shows exactly where I am, literally and figuratively, in my life right now.

We have empty water bottles, a wine glass and a tea cup scattered around.

There's an open pack of lollies floating around. Now that I look at the photo, I can see that there are three.

There are stacks and stacks of paper- handwritten scrawls, photocopied sheets.

I couldn't leave my laptop screen up because then it would reveal that I am spending copious amounts of time reading Robin Hood fanfiction. (I have banned myself from facebook... but honestly that's not the main time waster in my life right now!).

I have two half done assignments to show for it. I need to step it up, big time.

And then amongst all this mess, there's two sunny flowers bravely trying to shine their brightness in the darkness. It reminds me that I need to focus on the calm, not the storm. I need to be the light, not the dark.

As far as I'm concerned, if you can still see desk surface then it's not messy at all.

My desk is constantly far WORSE than that, so you should totally embrace your expectional tidiness! ;)

I have been there, with the water bottles and teacups and wineglasses and the procrastinating. I'm sure I will be there again once classes start. I feel your pain.

But good call on the flowers!!!

This looks like my kind of mess. ;) Just think, it could be much worse! :)
