The Darling Nomadess: College Life: Where I Work

College Life: Where I Work

After doing some spring cleaning, I thought it would be time to show you my work space! My desk is usually a landing ground for random things throughout the day so it was starting to get very cluttered. I finally had the opportunity to clean it last week, thank goodness! I gave you a room tour back in January so it's about time that I got around to this post before I move out in May and have to start all over again!

1. Where is your favorite workspace located? (Library, apartment, dorm room?)
I'm a nomad of sorts when it comes to where I complete my homework. I often do my homework from the comforts of my couch in my apartment or in my sorority's suite (we don't have houses). I also get a lot of work done on Sunday evenings in a conference room on campus where I run study tables for my sorority.

This is my adorable desk! It's right by the back door to my house so it frequently becomes an unloading place where I just dump mail, books, packages, etc. The pink elephants are my favorite desk accessories and friends often describe them as the "house mojo," haha!

2. Do you prefer a sleek desk or you more of an “organized chaos” kind of person?
I wish I could be the sort to have a sleek and beautifully organized desk. Unfortunately, I wasn't blessed by the OCD gods to have organization skills so my desk is often in an "organized chaos" state.

Picked up my graduation cap and gown last week! How do you think I should decorate my mortarboard? 

Just some trinkets from recent travels!

I love when my sorority little sisters craft and I am so proud that they all inherited my fabulous crafting skills. ;p

3. What is your favorite kind of writing utensil?
I really love pens of all sorts - colored pens, black pens, pretty get the idea. Recently, Influenster sent me the Acroball PureWhite pen. It's my current favorite pen to use for taking notes and writing my to do list as it writes really smooth. The Acroball PureWhite pens come in Pantone-inspired colors which makes them really fun to use. Its great for homework and writing in your planner but if you're one of those people who clicks your pen constantly, don't take this pen to class, as it might annoy your classmates!

4. Show us your calendar or agenda!

Where is your favorite place to work? 

With Love,
