The View From Here - #NaBloPoMo 11
Other than a slight pivot to the right so that I'm facing both computer monitors, most days that I'm in the office, this is my view. I've been in this space for more than two years, and I love it. I don't have a single complaint. I've loved that door and all the privacy that shutting it affords me. I've loved the proximity to the water cooler, and, ahem, the bathroom. It's not an enormous space, but I don't feel closed in. My chair is comfy. I have plenty of drawer and cabinet space. It feels like an extension of who I am. And I've only got one more week left in it.
We move to a new floor (same building) in just over a week, and I'm sad. It's a significant step up for me in terms of office pecking order, as I'll now have an external office with a gorgeous view of downtown Boston. And I am kind of excited about that. It's been over 10 years since I've worked near a window, and I guess that will be nice. But there won't be room for my Jackson Pollock print, or nearly as many photos of my kids. And I'll have to erase these whiteboard memories of moments when they visited me at work.
I've seen a lot of things change while I've had this view. A lot has changed about me too. I'm going to miss it.
