At the end of last week, my department conducted a major reconfiguration of our office. People moving around, new rooms being built out -- quite a big deal. Although I still won't have an actual office, I will finally have a cubicle with a window. (Oooooo.)
Unfortunately, I am not yet sitting next to that window. Due to some scheduling mishaps, my new cube is not yet complete. Today, as on Friday, I am "temporarily" holed-up in our file/work room, which at least has a computer. This isolated location does have a few silver linings, one of which is the ability to turn up some music without pestering any co-workers. But this is no substitute for the Promised Land of my new cube. Will I ever reach that happy place?
