I may be Milton. But I fought for some rights and got them!
Welcome to my new office. Please note window in close proximity to me! YAY! Please note stapler and cool, solid wood old school desk... no gross old 90s cube style for me, no facing taupe wall (you can't see it in photo). I'm satisfied. New office mate starts tomorrow (yes it's a complicated situation, but this person used to work here and is now coming back).
I have stood my ground. I even claimed a bookshelf you can't see in the picture, off to the immediate right of my desk. It is an official nerd factory on my side of the office. I still have some wall filling to do, but in due time. I'm a minimalist at work, what you see is actually my desk looking a bit messy. Yeah, I'm not a pack rat. I like a tidy camp. But I think I'm settled.... Pandora playing Andrew Bird station, check, runner and dog photos up, CHECK! Eco friendly water bottles and coffee mugs, pretty file holders, check, check.
