While I was searching Google for ideas for blog post, I happened upon this idea. Take a photo of your desk and write about it - what's in the picture, why it's there and so on. Since I'm looking to become more organized this year, I thought it would be a good way to change my habits.
There's a lot going on. Starting with the peripherals - Blue Yeti mic, Razer keyboard and mouse, and the Razer camera, which I won from Rudeism. On both sides, there's stacks of books - the left is mostly blank notebooks, a diary from last year (unused) and the Thor DVD on top. The right stack is my Harry Potter and Narnia colouring books, Fallout 76 Survival Guide, a box for a mobile tripod (empty), a FitBit band box (also empty) and a journal I tried but didn't get far in. You can see I often start things, but never follow through - which was why I set up this website and blog - to hold myself accountable.
There are also bottles - mostly Coke, but I'm trying to drink more water. I used to drink water all the time, and walk for 2 hours on the weekend - now that I'm working I can't be bothered. There's also an empty CC's packet, a Wizarding World Phoenix pin, a jar of wax, pads, and a pink lion. I bought him because I thought he looked cute.
As you can see, organisation and cable management are non-existent here. My Mum (who's put up with my messiness for almost fourty years) bought me a set of draws to go under the desk, as you can see below.
Yep, the rest of my room is messy too. The plan is for me to make a post each month, with a picture of my progress. This is great for me on many counts - as I'll be posting at least once a week, this takes up one spot of the four weeks. But also, it will show my progress and keep me on track. Let's hope this works people! Is there any bad habits you have that you'd like to change? Take one small step - and good luck.
