5.4: And It’s All Around You

October 6, 2005

Five things I can see from where I’m sitting right now:

  1. Three different calendars
  2. A blue foam shark
  3. This, taped to the window on my office door
  4. A hundred thousand Post-It notes
  5. A purple Swingline stapler

I was thinking about doing five things I’m freaking out about right now but I couldn’t narrow the list down and it freaked me out even more.

    1. Messy desk
    2. Whiteboard crowded with scientific scribblings
    3. Bookshelf stuffed with journals/publications/books that I almost never read
    4. Round wooden table with chairs for ad hoc brainstorming sessions
    5. Picture of my two sweetheart daughters

    Behind me, a large window overlooking the courtyard and into the windows of other people looking over their shoulder. I change in here sometimes, as I usually do not have my lights on, preferring natural light filling the room. My shades are down about 3 feet, so that makes is easy for me to avoid discovery, as the people across the way rarely look over their shoulder anyway.

    I miss having windows in my office. I like natural light, too, and in my current underground office, there’s none to be had. We tried to get those overhead bulbs that mimic daylight when we moved in, but it was a no go.
