The Mess and All

This is what my desk looks like when it’s clean. It’s rarely clean because I’m sort of a messy person by nature. Last year, I participated in the “Things I’m Afraid to Tell You” thing that went semi-viral and that was one of my confessions. I’m really good at being clean when I want to be (which is about every 5 days) and so if you meet me for coffee or are invited over for dinner…it’s a “clean” day for me (like…I just showered probably).

As I’m writing this at 2am (while my husband and dog are cashed out), I took this picture of my desk.

No natural lighting. An ugly second monitor. Papers galore. Cute, eh? I mean, I don’t have mold growing anywhere so that’s good. I’m not trying to say this is the worst mess in my house (please don’t go in my kitchen) but it is what it is.

Realizing this about myself is healthy. We all portray a certain angle on the internet. Sometimes I go days without posting a photo on Instagram due to the fact that I’m sitting, un-showered at this desk working my a$$ off. And it’s not really that pretty.

But it’s a good life. The mess and all.
