My office nook... the origin of most of my joy and
nearly all of my frustration...
sure you realized that there had to be an office area somewhere in my
apartment, since I do all the work on my website from my home, but I bet
you didn't realize it was so small...
I suppose I should consider myself lucky, though, since
in a one bedroom apartment you don't usually get a separate area large
enough for not only a computer a desk, but also a rickety old bookcase
(hidden off to the left) and a thirty-gallon aquarium (not quite as
algae-covered as it looks in the picture, and abandoned a bit ago in favor
of the larger tank). Being so functional, this
area hasn't quite received the loving attention to detail as some other
areas of my apartment, but most of the time I'm too busy hacking things to
death or blowing things up to notice. The curtain was put up in a
hurry to block out an unreasonable amount of early evening sun, so it's
not as attractive as I'd like, and the computer monitor and case (and
speakers, and keyboard) don't really do anything for the antique writing
desk, but who has the money to mess with things like that? I would
like, someday, to replace my bookcase (which I'm too embarrassed to even
show you) with a nicer model (maybe even one with a built in filing
cabinet), but I think it's going to have to stand in line behind all of
the other potential apartment improvements... bleargh.
I know it's difficult to leave the home of the video
games and the free internet porn, but eventually one must move on...
Might I suggest a quick look, perhaps, at the
or the bedroom?
How about the
or maybe even the
room? Don't want to go? You can always look at the
nook again, I suppose...
