I found this article today about success in middle school. There are some great tips for students and parents alike. Seven steps to succeeding in middle school
I am hoping to set up my office tomorrow, but we shall see if they will let me. The offices were painted last week and floors were waxed on Friday so I could not get in when I wanted to last week. Hopefully I will have access soon! :)
My office is tiny. The size of a large closet. It does have a window. In a way, it is good that it is small because it means that I will have less room to accumulate stuff.
I went shopping at Target and Kohl's last week and bought some decorations. They have painted the room a sea green color. My favorite colors are pinks and purples and I think they will look really good with the green. I bought several decorations that will just stick on the wall. They are supposed to be removable. I bought purple butterflies that are 3 dimensional, a poster that says, "Keep it real", a poster with several different sayings that I plan to cut up and put all over the wall. I also bought a stand lamp with 6 different arms and small shades in pinks and purples. I might look for a fun rug. We have a blue bean bag chair at home. I am thinking that maybe my mom would like to sew a fun cover for it so it would match the rest of the office.
I've been thinking about books that I would like in my office. Found a whole stack of them to bring in!
