Friday when I was beginning to do some work from home I was sitting on the floor alternating every 2 minutes so my legs didn't fall asleep so bad I'd have to amputate one of them. It was then that the computer HAD to go to the desk. I didn't care if that damn oil paint hadn't cured fully, I was sick of the pins and needles in my toes
I checked the desk, knocked on it with my fingernails to see if they made any indents: none. Phew! But in trying to hang my cube project (more on that later) the wrapper of some hardware did transfer over onto the desk
Pooh. Well, whadya gonna do? Moving on! I shut my computer down
(just in case you didn't believe me :) )
Then it was time to unplug, separate and organize
I don't know about you, but the cords behind my computer are always a hot mess. And I've got a ton of USB plugs for various cameras, hard drives, etc., so I have more cords than normal poking out of everywhere. I really wanted to try and keep things under control and not be super messy. So as I was putting things back together I kept like things together and attempted to keep the cords from getting all tangled
It took a bit longer than I expected because I was so frantic about those damn cords, but I think it looks good enough
My workspace is pretty awesome. I've got good desk space and I really enjoy having my actual computer tucked away behind my desk and the wall so it's out of the way
(I am in desperate need of a new mousepad This one is over 5 years old and is a 2006 Options Expiration Calendar that I designed when I interned at a financial services company. I know, very exciting.)
I think my chair looks super awesome with the desk too (if I do say so myself)
It's pretty comfy too. The chair is a great height, and the seat is really comfortable (no sore butts here! :) ). I've been putting the workspace to good use the last few days. Having a room to do work separate from my art room is something I am super lucky to have. And it really makes me more productive. I know that "this is my workspace." And gazing around at some creativity here and there - my paintings, (errr, painting because still only one is done...), my cubes (more on that project in progress later), and my bobbleheads (though of course I didn't make those, I find them quite entertaining) helps make this space productive and fun.
I'm really digging it.
