my office is in the space more commonly used as a dining room. a friend suggested i move the desk to face the window and now i face a beautiful tree which houses a little squirrel family. i watch them sleeping in a little hole while i work. one big huge important change was getting rid of the huge monitor that was old and scratched up. i do a lot of photo editing so now i am enjoying a flat screen lcd monitor and its slim shape. i fought with the idea of making this purchase, but it was a really great decision.
also, i built a shelf for cds that faces a pretty bookshelf. the balance in the room is very good for my scattered mind! i’ve also brought a few plants into the office, since i now have the space to do so! 6 years ago
it’s fairly organized, and kindof clean. needs a few hours of attention, tho. 6 years ago
i am working on this eternally. i have to get this finished before the end of August, cos i am moving to a different state to pursue an MFA in Photography!
hopefully i can get a real handle on this in the next 6 weeks and complete this goal! 7 years ago
i have been working my butt off doing this on weekends for about 5 months! it’s looking better, but still has a long way to go. i have emptied out seven 23 gallon trash bins and packed up 5 large storage bins! still going! 8 years ago
My desk is spit-spot clean with nothing on it except the computer. My closet is organised with a dresser that I took from Sasha’s room. All of my fibre is organized. My book shelves are half bare and need to be organized a wee bit more. All in all I condsider this task done… done in time for Christmas and done in time for the start of school! Yay! 8 years ago
i am sitting in my studio as i type this. i am sitting here with my laptop wedged into a cleared space on the desk. there is a literal pile of magazines/slides/cards/graphic projects in progress/invites/tax forms/mini digital prints/sketchbooks beside me. i think i am going to tackle that first.
this desk was almost pristine 6 months ago. my last year of college was truly life-sucking, and yet fun! this is the mess left behind.
okay, enough procrastinating. i’m going in!

i have what many artists would kill for. a studio space. an entire room, one of the largest in the house, dedicated soley to my art stuff.
why do i not use it? it is SO PACKED with 5 years worth of art school supplies that there are no available surfaces to use. it is literally full of supplies/books/works in progress.
i can hardly move around in there due to stacking of boxes and canvas and old computer equipment which is evil (gateway sucks).
i suck at cleaning. i am SO BAD at it. i can organize like a type A when it comes to online webspaces and my computer folders. my studio? a mess. total and complete.
now my boyfriend is movin in and we have NO PLACE to put his stuff. my bedroom is the tiniest room in the house. i may have to switch the bedroom for the studio. which is sort of laughable, if you have seen how much stuff is in the studio.
sort of at a loss with it right now. it is seriously standing in the way. i think if i had a team of four organized friends, we could put a dent in it. argh. 8 years ago
