6 and a half months after my job was made into a full-time position and I was given a new office to myself, I finally moved into my new office. I just up and decided one day that it was now or never, so I might as well get my stuff moved in.
IT had switched my phone over before I even arrived to the office on Monday morning (two weeks ago), so all I had to do was move the last of my things over. Thankfully I had already decorated the office a few months ago, so I just had to move my existing paperwork and projects over from my old office.
It’s so weird having my own office. It’s quiet, so quiet in fact I softly play Way-FM on my computer to break up some of the noise. I’m still adjusting to having people stop in my office to see me, instead of my office mate.
I haven’t gotten used to the new printer, and if we’re being honest, I kinda hate it. I’d rather have a plain black and white printer like I had before rather than this fancy color printer which requires me to replace a single color cartridge at a time. Plus, we don’t keep my printer cartridges in stock, so I have to put in a special order request.
Another thing I haven’t gotten used to is the layout. I’m used to having a big desk to work on, but with my new office, I don’t really have a desk. I have a credenza I can lay things on, but not a big work space. It looks like the majority of my big projects I’ll do on the floor– I have a habit for sitting on the floor so I can spread out my projects, and my coworkers laugh and point out my youthfulness.
I’m actually a bit glad I didn’t move into my new office 6 and a half months ago. I don’t think I was ready then. I think if I had moved in then, I wouldn’t have gotten as much work done because I was still struggling at work due to my depression. Now that my depression has lifted, I can get so much work done and it doesn’t bother me to spend the entire day alone, working on my own projects.
Enough with the word rambling. Here are what you’re really looking for: photos of my new digs. Do you think I could be on MTV’s Cribs: Office Edition?
