Weekly Photo Challenge: New

This photo was photo is posted on my instagram account.  This year, I’ll start the month with a new schedule (graveyard shift) which I am not used to, but these are new challenges in life, beginning, and another experience.  So to make this new schedule a breeze, I’ve been busy the day preparing my bed and room to make it cozier and relaxing when I get back from work in the morning.  Mimicking night by using a dark curtain.  I hope everyone starts the new year right and happy. 🙂
