We have this awkward space above our sink with a tiny little awkward shelf connected to it.
I am a part of what my 300 level marketing class calls a 'late majority' based on Everett Rogers' Diffusion of Innovations. Maybe even a 'laggard' though I hate to see myself in that kind of light...
Basically it takes me forever to hop on a trend bandwagon. I just started wearing those tights/leggings under tunics last summer. Got an iphone way after the majority. I had a straightener once but I roll my hair in hot rollers regularly. You get the picture. So when the chalkboard trend started, I admired it from afar, thinking how creative some folks are. Not really even considering trying it myself.
So long awkward space! Now you have purpose!
