It doesn’t look like much from these photos, but it’s taken me almost a month of organizing, rearranging, and cleaning just to get the newsroom of The Quindecim to look like this.
I spend my days off from The Sun transforming this office, one step at a time.
It’s starting to come together. Putting up the string of lights around the top of the room and moving the couch and exposing the fireplace give the space some feeling. Yesterday, I got some basic office supplies, which we’ve never had in my three years with the paper. I’ve moved the furniture around to make the room more functional.
I know I’ve made significant progress with our previously roach infested workspace, but sometimes it feels like I’m making none.
There are so many things that need to be done.
I keep telling myself that as long as I accomplish something each day, it will be set by the time the semester starts and it’ll be a great place to work.
