Nope, I am not talking about the big move to the new house. But instead I moved 'places'. Because of the new projects coming into the Deepwater office, the seating arrangements were reorganized. The (limited) floor space was revamped to cram more people into the 5 floors that we occupied in the building.
Surprisingly, I was very much looking forward to the move. Heck, anything beats the space I was occupying. My previous seat was right smack in front of the big boss' room. And because of the 'open concept' philosophy that we practice, my boss practically had his eyes on me all the time. He just had to lift up his head to be able to see my desktop and the
But still, even though my friends call me '(insert name of boss)'s santa little helper', I did not exactly enjoy being in the limelight all the time (your cue to gag). And this new place they had assigned to me was not in front of a boss, but instead with my closest colleagues. Oh, did I ever mention that I am the only lady in my team?? *grin* Being surrounded by a group of guys all the time is always fun, never dull!
Oh, but I did solve the issue of the 'full view'. I printed these super important posters in A0 and claimed that my boss' glass wall was the biggest wall available on the floor therefore providing me with an excuse to plaster his wall with these sheets thus shielding my workspace from his view. I also managed to paper the Project Manager wall! A very very effective tactic.
See how close my desk is to the boss???
Crazy us posing in front of the famous posters. Okay fine, so I got a bit carried away.
Quarter of the team. The pregnant lady is our designated business support.
Even camwhoring with the office bestie.
Also filling up forms for course nomination (soooo not work related...).
See??? Corner seat!
Yes, I realise that my cubicle is plastered with non-work related items. Let me clarify. You see, most of my work is confidential and therefore restricted to only the bid room.Therefore justifying my obsession with plastering my desk with Aiden's pictures since he was a baby. My view from the window behind my desk. A sight I rarely get to enjoy since I'm almost always cooped up in the bid room or hunched at my desk crunching numbers.
In a nutshell? I love my desk!!!
