The first picture is taken from the doorway into my office. It's a tiny rectangular shaped office, please don't drool as you admire all that gorgeous,
One thing that annoys the crap outta me, ok, wait, there are 2 things actually...the first one is the size of my desk...who in the hell ever thought that a desk that is ONLY 20 INCHES deep (yes, I measured it) would be sufficient space? Must have been a man.
Note how the trashcan is nearly in the middle of the room - there is NO where to put it so it's both out of the way, yes accessible. Instead it's a nice big, brown, metal eyesore.
The second thing...look at the monstrous size of my desk chair!! WTH? Most would probably LOVE this, however I do not. It does not even fit in the space the desk allows for and I never get to sit back and actually enjoy any comfort it may provide because of the gross non-ergonomic state of my office. I have to sit on the edge of the chair just to be able to type. I moved the keyboard from the pull-out drawer in front because it was too low and I kept having to move the chair in order to type - completely annoying. Now it's on the desk and well, I prefer it there, but it is too high.
So, as you'll see, not a very exciting office. rather dull actually. I try to keep things nice and neat...I'm OCD like that. Note the very large AKA Route 44 Diet Dr Pepper from Sonic. I usually only get the Large size, but had a coupon for a FREE Route 44, so there you have it. I was not able to finish it though before it got crazy watered down. blech!
I love my little "inspirational" sign that says "you are like no other" - I thought it would be a great addition especially since I meet with undergraduate students on a regular basis...hopefully it would inspire "someone" - well, so far no one has said ANYTHING about it. Maybe they've seen it but just not mentioned anything. Anyway, I love it and I got it on Etsy.
And this last pic is of the lovely view I have from my desk...the ladies bathroom. There are pros and cons to this location. PRO-I always know when it's occupied and don't 'waste' a trip walking there only to have to wait. PRO-I know who DOESN'T WASH THEIR HANDS and therefore know to NEVER ever shake hands with them. EVER! Con-constant flushing in the background, although I've started to block this out. CON-odor. need I say more?
I hope you enjoyed the virtual tour of my office.
