Instagram you know that I bought out the notebook paper stuff from 4 different Targets ;)), and putting up the tissue paper borders for my boards (which still had the felt up from last year....because that stuff is expensive so it is up for a while ;))
I was feeling pretty good about the status of my room. The boards looked neat. It was empty and plain, but functional.
Then I went on Pinterest and Facebook and Instagram.
I kept seeing pictures of BEAUTIFUL classrooms. Fabulous libraries. Gorgeous quotes filling the walls. Comfortable nooks with amazing carpets, chairs you could sink into, and the perfect lamp in the corner. These pictures were of classrooms to die for.
And I felt inadequate.
I felt pressure to make my room as immaculate as what I was seeing in everyone else's room.
I wanted to post pictures of what I was doing in my room, but no angle in the classroom could hide the boringness that is Room 6.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE those classrooms. I wish I had one of those classrooms. But honestly, it just isn't me. That is not my style, and quite frankly, I don't have the decorating chops to make my room gorgeous. Nevertheless, I felt like my own room, my own space, my own little blog here, was just not worthy to share with you.
Let me be the first to tell you.
You are worthy.
I am worthy.
We are all worthy. Beautiful Pottery Barn classroom or functional set up, we all are there with one thing in mind, educating students. We all will do that over the course of this year and our room environments will grow to reflect that learning. It is ok if your room isn't picture perfect on Day 1. It doesn't have to be.
And if it is, can you come and decorate for me please? ;)
