The administrator who assigned me the very tiny classroom I occupy at one of my schools came by my room yesterday. We talked after school, and she again lamented the fact that I had no where else to go, and how crowded my classes felt. I asked if she had any suggestions to open up more space - I'd already redone the basic layout of my room a few times so far this year. After pondering for a moment, she asked if I actually used my desk - she'd never seen me be anywhere near it. She's right of course - even when she's not around, I really don't use a desk. As I write, I have my laptop in my lap (it makes sense to me!). I'm not much for working at a desk unless I am crafting. Even then, practically any convenient flat surface will do. So yesterday evening my desk and a barely used bookcase were removed from my room.
I rearranged again. The room appears considerably larger now than it did before. I seriously need to post the before and after pics... But I need to redo my wall decor before I take pictures.
Now if only I had a bigger carpet...<sigh> It wouldn't hurt to ask, would it?
Before, when I said that by the time I got around to posting pictures of my redone room, that I'd have redone it again....I was right. I'd really like to stop moving my furniture now though.
