Even after almost two years of blogging, I still haven’t really shared the space that inspired all my posts. Recently, I’ve stumbled online and discovered this very cool company called Wework and they are co-working companies whose mission is to “create a world where people work to make a life, not just a living.” Anyway, bibbidi bobbidi boo, here I am, being inspired to share my workspace or shall I say my world.
I don’t have a specific workspace. That’s one of the advantages of working from home. I can work anywhere in the house. But seeing that I need to be able to simultaneously looking at two computers, I don’t have a lot of options, either my room or the kitchen counter. I pick my room.
My room is my favorite spot in the whole house, after all, it is my room. It’s small, cozy, and I have everything set up just the way I like it to be.
As you can see, I got my two laptops, bottles of water, and small metal shelf. I’ve got everything I need. If I’m just composing a blog post or story, I typically use my old laptop sitting in front of me. It’s 5 years old but it still works. The new laptop is for work and watching online videos. My old laptop often freezes when I watch videos.
The bottles of water? That’s because I don’t want to run up and down the stairs to get a drink. It’s sometimes exhausting. Also, after my mother purchased the water cooler and my aunt and cousin came to town, I started refilling my bottles at school. The water there just taste so much better. Of course, that will be a story for another time.
Oh, and remember this guy? Yeah, I keep it right behind me in case I needed it. I’ve been having some back and neck trouble lately, 😦 probably from spending long hours turning my head between computers. It helps sooth the ache just a little but it doesn’t really do much.
Well, that basically wraps up. I stay in my room all day working and writing but at rare times, when I’m feeling a bit bored in my room, I’d then go down to the living room couch with my computer to write or plug it into the TV via HDMI and watch a movie.
In the email, Emma also asked me, if I could, what I would add to create my ultimate dream space work environment. There are a few things I’d like to change about my current setting.
For one, my room can always use a fresh coat of paint in a different color instead of this green and some artistic design, not by me of course but by an actually artist. A bigger room. With the queen bed taking up most of the room, it feels a little claustrophobic sometimes and I have to be extra careful maneuvering my way from my computer to the shelf. Otherwise, I’ll get jabbed by my foot-board’s sharp edges.
Another thing… A bigger and less wobbly computer desk along with a more comfortable chair. The chair I have now is heavy and with me sitting on it, it leaves a permanent mark in the new carpet.
It’s raining outside. Ugh, why does the weather has to toy with me every time I have to go to a Toastmaster meeting? I didn’t want to go but my mother’s urging I go and return all the stuff. I’ll probably do the daily prompt later today but chances are, it’ll be fiction and won’t be on this blog. We’ll see.
