When I first starting working full time, I had and office. A small office, but an office. Then I had an “officle” – essentially an office without a fourth wall and door. Then I had a cubicle, with no complete walls. Then I was downsized. Then at my new job I had an office but with no window that I had to share with an office mate who burped a lot. Then I had a cubicle with even lower walls, and then a series of subsequent cubicles. Then I had no space altogether since I was slated to go abroad. And then I started working in our living room, and then our guest bedroom. And then I got promoted twice and we moved back. Which means that I not only have an office, but one of the bigger ones. I’ve arrived! Well…I don’t know about arrived but it’s nice to get a bit of space.
Since I inherited my office from someone who moved to another group, and since I have been working from home for the past three years, the office is a bit sparse and in these new and transparent times, it’s also glass on two sides, and cardboard (well not cardboard, but you know what I mean) on two walls. But I’ll take it.
I was hoping to get some e-design advice to help get it up to snuff but it turns out, hiring an e-designer is kind of hard. One didn’t write back. One wrote back two weeks later and gave me a rather steep price for a rather small space that really only needs accessorizing. The third one isn’t available until November. Gah. Looks like I’m going to have to roll up my sleeves and do it myself, which might mean that it ends up less coordinated but more fun. I’ve been collecting some thoughts on pinterest but here’s what I’m inspired by as of late.
