Less junk, more accents.
I’m sure you probably remember my old cramped desk. Believe it or not, I had that desk for five years, simply because I had absolutely no room for a larger desk. Eventually, especially as subsequent iMacs became larger, the desk itself became more of a burden. There was room for hardly anything but the iMac and a tiny half-sized notepad. Well, that finally changed this weekend.
We literally swapped the office with the much larger guest bedroom and took the opportunity to purchase some larger desks. As you can see in the photo below, this is a significant improvement. It’s hard to describe, but I just feel a whole lot better about spending most of the day at my computer now.
Today marks the first day that my desk has been clean since the day we moved, so I figured I’d share a photo of this monumental occasion.
To the left is the Automattic holiday card that serves as inspiration through the work day, my iMac obviously dominates the center of the desk, and my trusty sonic screwdriver is to the right should I find myself in any impossible situations.
