No, don't buy a new desk. That would be stupid. If your desk is on posts, there are thing that are meant to raise your bed a few inches, so that could work. Maybe you could lower your chair, or just add boxes if it isn't a post desk.

You could use some soup cans,or juice cans. We did that once when we couldn't afford a new desk. Or use some books you aren't reading right now. Just some ideas ok? Good luck

Hey boo, I could just prop up the desk myself from below! I don't mind, really, and you would hardly notice me there. Or you could get those desk raiser things from Bed Bath and Beyond, they're cheap, and easy to use! But, they may not be available until back to school in August (though maybe they're somewhere in...
