Since I’ve been at my new job for almost 8 weeks now, I’ve been wanting to show you a picture of my desk. After spending almost 2 weeks at 2 different desks, I finally was able to get settled in to my permanent location. This is what it looks like:
Items of Note (from left to right):
My insulated milk mug. If you know me in real-life, you know I don’t drink coffee. I do, however, enjoy an ice cold glass of milk with breakfast, and the insulated coffee cup does the trick.
My March Madness bracket. We’ll see how I do this year.
My niece! Or, you know, her picture. I don’t think anyone would appreciate me bringing in a 2mo baby into the office. Or at least not to stay.
My blue/green-dotted pen holder. Actually, it’s a toothbrush holder that I just ran into at Walmart and knew had to be the inspiration for the colors of my desk accessories. All the other colors can be found on this cup.
The post-it on my monitor says: “Though He slay me, I will hope in Him. – Job 13:15a” Perhaps a little morbid for work, but an important reminder and it just happened to be the first verse to jump out at me while I was at work, so there it is. I’ve received no comments on it from co-workers, so either they haven’t noticed it, or they’re too polite to comment.
A Diet Dr Pepper can. Of course. They tend to collect on my desk.
My water jug. I got it for Easter last year from my Mom, probably because it says “bubba” on it (“Bub” or “Bubbie” have been my nicknames since birth.). I drink a lot of water at work, so this definitely comes in handy.
My Lipsmaker. A must-have.
Yes, I have 2 monitors. We all do. And once you get used to two monitors, it’s hard to go back to one.
My jewel-blue mouse pad, chosen to match the decor.
My plant. Having a bit of life about my desk makes me happy! It’s a low-light plant, so hopefully it’ll thrive with me being 50 feet from the nearest window. If not, I ordered a natural light lamp that will help.
So what do you think of my desk? Thoughts about how to make it more “me?” At some point, I want to print out some quotes to put on the gray back.
