Hey Everyone!

I just walked over to my study desk and had one of those moments where looking at it made me feel so happy. I just couldn't resist sharing a pic and seeing what you all think!

I love how the herbs smell in the morning (especially the mint) and the aloe vera plant just gives me these healthy vibes.

I would love to know how you all have your study desk set up.

Here it is! : )

    I love how you have your pencil tips covered!!!! I need to do that! <3 I love your keyboard cover as well! I need to find mine :joy:.

    @Sprinkles and @akistotle lol you two are so funny! :joy: Is this on Amazon? lol But would the plants arrive okay after shipping? After I posted this I realized what I should have done was grow 7 different sage plants! Just to match the theme. Hopefully, having 7 plants increases my chances of becoming a sage? :joy:

    @"Jonathan Wang" your setup looks amazing and so efficient and serious! It's minimalistic and everything looks work related. I really like it <3.

    @Sprinkles I can't wait to see what your desk looks like <3.

    Nice set up, Sami! I love the incorporation of natural light*** and herbs. Looks like a very pleasant place to prep! :)

    Mine is a little ... boring. My apartment is so small that I'm just grateful I was able to fit the desk anywhere, even though it's not by a window lol

    Not the best photo and pardon the stacks of things around my desk, I just moved to a new apartment recently haha. Used to share a 2 bedroom townhouse with a roommate and now flying solo in a studio, so still playing tetris to figure out how to store everything. But luckily, it's big enough that I still had room for a desk. I don't love staring at a wall like this but at least there's a big window to the left so it's not as claustrophobic haha.

    I know what you mean <3. It's like they become your babies. I am sorry they had to go through that shipping nightmare but at least they have got you now <3. I think they are very lucky. <3 :kissing_heart:

    Thank you @Sami for starting this thread. My desk is a little bit cleaner now.

    lol Each student I have had so far has said that they were inspired by the post to clean their desk :joy: <3. I'll be honest, before the plants came my desk used to be super messy. But since they have been here, I take extra pride in maintaining a clean desk. Plus, since I need to water them in the morning and evening, it forces me to clean the desk so water doesn't fall on the papers.

    It looks really good!!!! <3 I love that you have a fan there. I might add one since it can get pretty hot. Also, you reminded me that I should always have a water glass there. I keep forgetting to drink enough water! It's so important to stay hydrated.

    Thank you! :) It's been getting warmer here and sooo stuffy - fans everywhere! That's one of 3 in my little studio lol. 3rd floor apartment might mean it's a sweaty summer. Hydration is indeed important - though often in the evening that's a wine glass instead of water haha.

    Unfortunately I had to take the plants off my desk today. As I was watering them in the morning I saw that my basil was turning brown and I did a bit of research. Turns out I was being an overenthusiastic plant-parent and watering them twice a day. They only need watering once a week! Overwatering them can actually kill them. :disappointed:.

    So here they are in the sun -off my desk and recovering. I pruned my basil out and hopefully the sun will dry out the water. Their sister has taken the task of guarding them while they are out of the house. <3 Hopefully, I can bring them back on my desk in the evening today.

    @akistotle I hope yours are doing better. <3

    On a better note, I had planted a couple of tomato plants. One of them just produced their very first flower!!! I know the tomatoes are not LSAT related, but little things like these make me happy and I bet they have a good effect on LSAT. Hopefully, more will bloom soon! If not, I'll at least have one tomato very soon :joy:
