The Evolution of a Desk

Yeah, that's what this post is about. I've lived in 4 different apartments since graduating high school. I didn't have a desk while living in Florida, I just sat on my bed to use my laptop. For the other 3 apartments I've had a desk. So here we go, the evolution of a desk.

 Living in Valley View at Utah State was likely my favorite room layout of the two dorms. I had one half of the room, and Brianna had the other. My closet was small, my dresser was small, my room was small, but I loved it there.
My desk was huge. I could fit my printer on it! It was a good, obviously messy space that introduced me to the world of college.

 Take 2 at on campus housing. Reeder introduced me to friends that I still hold on to today. Bri and I split the desk here, and it was incredibly smaller than my first desk. Here I learned to work in cramped spaces. I figured out how to really organize myself, note the purple 3 drawer bin that took the place of my drawers full of pens, pencils, post-it notes and desk stuff. The closet was huge, and we had bunk-beds. It was epic.

And now to Cedar Hills Apartments. My own room, a huge closet, walls plastered with my art. The desk is old and ugly, with rusty drawers and uneven surfaces, but it's my nursing school desk, and I love it. My printer fits under it, my trash can fits, my chair fits. It's wide enough to have the computer on and my textbook open in front of me. My calendar hangs at my eye level, and the Disney all over the desk keeps me smiling.

So there you have it! The evolution of Courtney's desk.

I know it's random, but I thought it would be fun to compare.

  1. I just realized that the desk you are using now was a desk we bought for Dad to use when he was in college!! Crazy huh!! That desk has lived in 5 different houses and now it lives in your cute apartment. Talk about the "Circle of Life!!" ;-)
