The job of being an official school counselor is going great! I am still VERY overwhelmed and slowly picking it up. I think there were 25 people who asked me questions today and I answered all of, maybe 2 of them. I just don't feel like I have the authority to make decisions yet or know the school well enough to just know an answer, since I'm only on week # 3, but can you even believe it?! Week 3! Teachers come back Thursday!

I think today was the first time that I felt like my office was sorta coming together, or maybe I just felt like it wasn't a disaster today like normal. There is a lot of clutter, and I have had to be as cheap as possible to decorate, which means its bare in there.

So here are some of the pictures from the first few days to now. (I actually forgot to take pictures before I rearragned all the furniture, but the desk used to be long ways in the office against a wall and I felt like it was really tight in there like that, so I had it rotated so I could see people when they came in the room AND make use of my windows.)

Before: Plaid Curtains

After: Sheer fabric as curtains & my bulletin board! (I have a few things to hang where the brown board is, but can't commit to them yet) And the picture in the window says: GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN TODAY! I love it!
Before: The door way with an old PEPSI clock above it (you can't see it, but just imagine!) and very unorganized shelves.

New cute teal clock from Target, shelves emptied & cleaned out! (You can see the PEPSI clock in the 'waiting' area, I hung it in there instead of my office).
We're STILL waiting on the cushy chair be recovered, but hopefully it will be done soon! It will replace that funky blue one in the corner when it arrives. And yes, I NEED decorations on the walls! But I can't afford them right now, so we'll just make due and pretend its supposed to be white and clean!

Maybe by May I'll feel like its mine :)
