Wishlist // Dream Desk

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

After having to stay mum about it for over a month (yes, a month), I'm thrilled to finally announce that I've been promoted to an administrative position at my company. I'm starting the new year with a shiny new job, and for the first time in a long time, I'm extremely proud of where I'm at and where I'm going -- even if it means school has to go on the back burner another semester (at minimum). It's almost a strange thing to feel excited about, this whole promotion business, because if you'd told me I'd be working a typical 9-5 just six months ago, I likely would have said that death would be preferable. But here I am, four months in at this job and I've worked my way up from instructing a few hours a week to managing the entire office full-time. Holy shit. Wasn't it just yesterday that I was sharing the news that I got this gig in the first place?

In all seriousness though, I love my job, and when this position first became available in November, I knew it was far too good to pass on. It's giving me the much needed downtime at night I never had when I was freelancing, I have (most) weekends off and it's helping me save up for Zack and I to *hopefully* find a little house together before the summer. My bosses are great, my coworkers are great, and I've got an enormous amount of office space to organize and decorate to my heart's desire.

I've been going crazy thinking of fun ideas to brighten up my desk area the past few weeks so it's a place I truly like sitting at for 40 hours a week. Since my company exclusively dabbles in science enrichment opportunities for children, I'm definitely digging a science theme for my desk space. This little wishlist/moodboard of sorts reflects a bit of what I've got in mind. The test tube organizers and framed Chemistry Cat photo are an absolute must, as are the anatomical models and butterfly pushpins. I'm still in the process of cleaning, filing and organizing the mess the former office manager left behind, but I'm sure I'll post photos once I finally get everything in its place and put together.
