So Jealous!

This is but a wee one to let you all know how GREEN with envy I am at the moment. I could plaster this on each of your blogs but your numbers are far too great and I would never finish...

...but you know who you are. You energised and excited interior designers that are filling the blogrolls far and wide with Befores and Afters and Works in Progress. Posting pictures about how you are laying out your reading corner and your clutter-free desk, you really don't know what bittersweet torture this is for me, do you?

Yes, even MY OWN BLOGROLL is against me as it taunts me daily with updates, eager ambitions, and glorious creative projects that would have made my life so much easier if you had only posted them back in January.

Oh, the inhumanity of it all!

Don't you worry though. Seasons change and in a few months, you will be in the thick of it and I will be bombarding you all with updates of my classroom as it was, as it will be, and every painstaking step of the way. You will cry out "I wish I was setting up my classroom!" just as I am now. And in that moment, you will know but a fraction of my suffering. For I am only one, and you far, far, FAR outnumber me!

But I guess what I am saying is "be kind". Have some decency about all this inspiration you are throwing around. Be considerate about how carelessly you fling around those countless moments of brilliance... because you're making it hard to concentrate!

...but if you are one of those people or are looking for some of these ideas that I am ranting on and on and ON about, please check out my blogroll and visit these brilliant people. Tell them I sent you. Then tell them I was talking about them! Cheers!


  1. Hey Liam! This made me laugh so hard! I'm way behind on my pics because we don't start until the very beginning of September, but mine will be all set soon. I think it's great that we can see your room later this year--it'll be like a later-year inspiration for us! Looking forward to it!

  2. Nice post. It made me smile for a long time. It is always nice to hear a different voice. If I were you I'd have a note book writing EVERYTHING down. Ha, ha. I will have mine handy when you have to start over.

  3. @ Kristen: Glad you find so much delight in my pain! I'm "looking forward" to seeing your pictures so I can add it to MY list of classrooms to mimic.

    @ Ms.M: Good thinking. I have a feeling my posts will be a case of "Where Do You Think THAT Idea Came From" for a lot of the components of my room but I will try to have an original thought as I set up my room in January.
