I feel like having a comfortable and "pretty" study space plays a big role in motivating yourself to study. Nobody wants a stuffy table with a squeaky chair that constantly interrupts you from what you are trying to get done. Initially, I had a desk which I was gonna "beautify" in the study room. But I felt like it was too small and the room has a TV in it, which let me just tell you, is very distracting. With A levels only weeks way, I really need to study and isolate myself from all the tempting distractions. I thought what better place than my room? But first, I would need a desk.
Having to pass my sister's room everyday, I couldn't help but notice this empty desk that was just sitting unattended on the corner of her room. One thing led to another and the next thing I know, I was dragging this desk to my room, taking down frames, stealing decorations from other parts of the house, printing motivational quotes and planner. After hours of hustling, I had a desk. A pretty, organised, and comfortable desk. Or at least I think it is. Should I take you through it?
Alright, let's start from the upper left side of the desk. The roses? They're fake. Real roses are expensive. Moving on to the centre of the top shelf are these glassless frames which are my favourite things about this desk. One of them is filled with a collection of quotes that I thought would help motivate me to study and brings more life to the desk, while the other has a March planner attached to it. Next to them is this wire mannequin which you can't see obviously, thanks to the sunlight casting through the window. But it's pretty, and surprisingly strong enough to hold my books, these books I am currently reading.
On the middle shelf I have this tin that I painted a while back where I store my colour pencils, and my bag organiser (they call it) next to it where I keep my daily essentials like my phone charger. Then I have this little watering can holding up my pencils and pen, as you can see, a red tin bucket storing my markers, and a pile of fake hollow books which are just there for the sake of decoration, really.
On the desk itself, there are these built in drawers on each end that create an empty space in the middle which I really like, and the space is now filled with some boxes where I keep my flash cards, with another frame underneath it. I was gonna print a nice picture to put in it, so I originally stood it on my desk. But after some time, I just got annoyed by the happy family staring back at me with their wide ass grin so I put it down and placed the boxes over it. But look how well that turned out. Another wiry item there, this time it's a basket with scissors and a hand cream in it. Because I just can't stand touching papers with my dry fingers. They give me this weird feeling, like that feeling when you're scraping a paper with your bare nails, ugh. Sorry if I gave you goosebumps.
I guess that's all. All the other things on my desk need no explanations. Folder, notebook, phone, macbook, paper holder, very self explanatory. Hope you enjoy a random post like this! Comment below if there's anything else you would like to see on this blog.
