Moving into an Office

weather: sunny
outside: 11°C
mood: okay
First, some silliness. XD

As far as Work goes, I will be moving into an office by the end of this week. A co-worker recently left for an opportunity elsewhere, so that left an office open. I put in a bid and lo, it's mine.

I had debated it for quite a while whether or not I want an office. I like the open space that I have now. I like having air and natural light. Right now, I'm next to a large window and a large ledge where I have my yoga mat laid out. I've used it before, but very rarely and only for a few quick cross-legged stretches. I'm not doing a Downward Dog (a.k.a. Upward Ass) on an elevated platform in front of a roomful of co-workers.

I tried to take naps on it in the evenings, but the window is not well insulated, even though it's double-paned. There's a really cold draft and it's pretty pointless. I don't use it much anymore, but looking at it and looking out the window makes me feel better.

But the huge advantage of having an office is the privacy. I may possibly be able to play my music on my speakers instead of my earphones. And, more importantly, I'd be able to talk on the phone. I can't talk on the phone right now without blaring at everyone else. That sucks for the times I want to talk to my Financial Advisor... and, not to mention the embarrassment when </a></b></a> goads me into saying, "I love you" rather loudly ("I said 'I looooove you'... louder... I can't hear you... why aren't you saying it? ... do you hate me?"). I'll get him back soon enough =D

It's going to be an inner corner office... on the corner of a fairly busy and noisy corridor, so I'm not sure how distractive it will be. The outer offices (with windows) are taken by folks with higher senority than I. =) Although, the window offices are quite a bit smaller.

Oh. I just had a thought. If I don't have a window, I have no idea what'll happen to Neville (HOLY MOSES, THE LITTLE GUY HAS GROWN!!). I may have to give him to someone with a window. =C Nooo... *sniff*

Cool. I'll be moving into an office too at some point, most likely. I've got the office but it hasn't been equipped yet (phone, for instance) so I don't bother to use it much.

I can't believe you're still in a cubicle. That's just wrong. =P

Well, I elected to be in a cube. Or, to be more accurate, I asked for both, and ended up just getting the cube action because they said they were short on offices. And then I found out that they were using the offices for things like storage closets and photo-shoot rooms (when they do photo shoots once a month - if that).

So now I've asked for the office and they've given me one. Heh. I dunno.

Yay for moving! I just moved into my new office. I'm sharing it with one co-worker, but it's a vast improvement from my cubicle down in the dungeon with 5 other contractors.

I'm glad you're going for the office. Just the phone and music privacy thing makes up for the window. I recently moved from having my own office to sharing with someone. I don't mind the earphones, but I've completely lost my phone privacy (hello, I have to do wedding stuff duing the day!!), not to mention my gratuitous web surfing privacy (my office mate has a plain view of my monitor).

As long as your work is getting done, there shouldn't be a problem. But I can understand that the perception would be bad =P

You never know unless you try. Privacy, however, I think is preiceless... --Ray
