Where I Work

Today's scheduled #BEDM topic is "workspace." And I really wish I had better content for this one. If you've been hanging around here a while, you probably recall how my desk has looked for the past year.

Yeah. It ain't pretty. I promise you, there s a desk under there. So maybe writing a blog about my "workspace" is not the best move. It's been rough in particular this semester with me running all over the world every week (or it seemed that way at least.) So this was essentially how I lived all semester... How embarrassing.

With my internship in Gwinnett, I also had to learn to work/function there and back at home in Athens. I was essentially living in two worlds. But there were a few things that kept me on top of things even in the chaos. 

1. Pencil bag
No. I'm not five years old. But, yes. I still use a "pencil bag" that I carry with me every day (but not in my purse, I'm not that crazy.) I'm a color-coder, so having all the pens I need, all the time, is important to my life. Plus, mine is really cute. Here's one very similar to mine!

2. Mini notebook
This has been a new development. I find myself running around with lists all over the place. So I finally decided to get a small notebook that I carry everywhere with me so I can keep my lists in one place. It was such a lifesaver all semester. I've got this set from B&N.

3. Mobile calendar
For someone who is all about writing things down, this is weird. But being able to check my calendar on the go was so necessary this spring. Between meeting invites for work, making plans with friends, and keeping up with all of my school work, there was a lot happening on my calendar on any given day. I've told y'all a million times about my obsession with BusyCal, but it's seriously the best. It syncs up all my Google Calendars, Outlook Calendars, and anything else I need seamlessly. You don't realize how much you needed it until you have it. Worth the money. I promise.

I've spent the past two weeks getting my room back in order, so hopefully by the end of May I'll be able to share proof that I am sane with y'all. Because after accessing those pictures above, I'm starting to question it myself.

What makes your work space feel like home?
