friday was my last day of work at my old office. as i prepare to head back to school in the fall, i decided that the time had come for me to leave a job that wasn’t feeling like it was all that it could be, and try something new for awhile. how exactly i’ll spend the next few months is not entirely clear (and the work i do may include many more babies and ketchup-stained napkins than i’ve been accustomed to), but i’m ready for the change. today i sat here and worked on a project for my sister.
office space.April 20, 2009
an open window. natural light. wildflowers in a glass milk bottle. ah, sweet freedom.
but what about the work part? i felt less focused than usual (though this might have been partially due to checking in with smitten readers’ favorite flowers…it was too fun, i couldn’t help myself!). but all this fresh air and flowers made me entirely more ready to take a stroll outside than to buckle down and do work.
what do you think? what’s your ideal work space? how do you stay focused and happy?
