Decorating is F U N ! 

I go by exactly one rule: make it look like it was done on purpose.  (Although I have seen success with the opposite, I think "accidental chic" is a gift or a TON of know-how and work...ie not me.)

 

I also decided to use color in my house, but to only paint with colors that I would wear on my body in public.  That way, I would never look washed out in a pale yellow kitchen, for example - I love the color, it would look lovely in a kitchen, but it makes me look sick.  That worked for me.  /shrugs

#1 decorating principle: does it make you happy? It's your room, put stuff you like in it. Anybody who tells you otherwise can GTFO. But seriously, the things you like have a way of meshing, or at least that's my experience.

Decorating is truly a realm where I Have No Idea What I Am Doing, so I'm a wee bit terrified, but excited to make it really my own!

 

I generally go about it like so:

1) Pick a theme (beach-ey? Modern? Vintage?)

2) Pick a palette (what main color do you want, google image search to find colors that compliment it)

3) Do the thing. DO IT. It is really lovely to have a place in your home that feels grown up and put-together. The rest of my place may look like a sty, but the living room looks awesome. :)

This.

 

Don't know what theme you like best/can pull off almost instinctively? Afraid of color? Go on Pinterest and look for interior design. Pin anything you're attracted to. Decor stores work much the same way for revealing your favorite colors/materials. If that doesn't work, you can always pull from your favorite person/place/thing in the whole nerdiverse and use that as a theme/color jumping off point.

My back hasn't been as bothersome so I was reducing the amount of relaxers I was taking. Didn't take one before bed for the first time.

 

Mistake. That was exactly how to feel like a slightly broken marionette puppet in the morning. I'm so fortunate for our lenient work from home policy.

Come to think of it, it may be because I'm a stubborn asshole who refuses to ask Mr Ix to clean the litter. (It's back intensive, she has kidney disease and there are "heavy" big clumps and you stoop down and move the clumps and then the waste bag(s) are heavy and you have to refill the box nearly every time, poor kitty)

 

Almost forgot I did that. Ugh maybe I should change stop whining to stop being dumb

Might be worth a shot. You describe pain/discomfort associated with deadlifting type activities, so maybe a general moratorium on those for a week?

If there is one household chore that ever aggravates my back,

 

this is it.

 

We don't have the clumps but just the bending down, moving the box to the bathroom to scoop, stooping and heavy bags and yup.  YUP.  Will definitely make any ache more achey.

Other rando things today. Got my appointment confirmation call and apparently I'm supposed to have the MRI with me?? I was like hey no what? So I had to go out and get a copy from the MRI place today. I spent a lot of time looking inside myself, literally, which is an odd as heck feeling.

 

Anyway, the bulge is obvious enough to me, but honestly doesn't look super awful compared to MRIs on the internets.

Y'all I'll be lucky if I manage to get whatever I put on the walls to match whatever I do with the chair and such lol

I can't even figure out what wall to put the desk(s) on. The obvious choice is the one with the entrance door b/c it has the ethernet and hdmi cable drop. But then I'm facing a sad wall (so jazz it up maybe!).

 

The room's strength is the big window. It's a tiny room but it has one wall that's about half window and it lets a lot of good natural light in. So I need better window dressing and to use that in a way I like. (If my desk faces the wall mentioned above, my back will be to the window)

 

Another option is to stick the desk out so that only the side is on the wall and I'm facing the flat tv and have the window to my left. Good set up, but like I said, the room is small, so this basically eats up all the space. It's similar to how I have it now and it really does get in the way.

 

I think I'm talking myself into back to window and jazzing up that sad wall, it makes the most sense for space usage and where the data drops are....

It would work, except for outlets and such. Cable management would increase drastically in difficulty. 

 

Which leads me to...

 If your desk includes your laptop/PC setup, it's not going to be sad for long! All of Eorzea will be on display! :D 

 

Um, I just got THE BEST idea...

No idea if I can make it work in the budget though.

Pinterest the crap out of that idea until you figure a way to do it in budget!  If the idea makes you happy, give it a go!

 

I second this idea! Mr T and are thinking of doing a DIY treadmill desk in 2018 so all internet activity involves light walking. And Pinterest has some REALLY creative ideas. LOL. So I can only imagine what they have for your room layout.
