My workspace is… crowded. Two nine-pound fluffballs really dictate whether work is to be done or not! I’m not a minimalist. I’m also not a collector, so I’m somewhere in between. What I do love about my desk is my windows. I face out to my backyard and it’s just the right amount of foliage to not distract, but enough where I can pretend I’m in the english countryside (especially when it’s raining!).
I completely copied Anna from Door Sixteen and bought her (exact…) agenda from local LA-based Poketo. I’ve only been playing with it for an hour (super-fast shipping by the way!) but it’s even more awesome than I anticipated. It’s not letter sized, it’s A5! Smaller is better, in this case. I can fit it in my brand new satchel!
The other great part about my office is that I share it with Matt. He sits to the left of me. He’s not a bad roommate, though his incessant tapping and singing are things to get used to. He doesn’t get the best view, but that’s ok. I don’t think he looks up from his computer screen much!
Our other roommate is our guinea pig Gus.
As I ate the best macaroons in the world today at Europane and started to fill out my agenda, I realized I was the most content I’ve been in a long time. Sure, I’m not where I want to be, but I have the rest of my life to get there! Right now, I’m happy. I get to have office cats, work from home, jet out to get macaroons, see Jane Eyre with my mom at the $2 theater… It’s a pretty nice life.
The next project right now is to follow my rules. Today is Tuesday: my only task today is to shower. Pathetic that I have to write that down! I cleaned the kitty litter yesterday according to my schedule. I’m finally on track!
Side note! I downloaded Lady Gaga’s new CD Born This Way; it’s great! It’s better than I thought it would be. It’s on non-stop while I work!
