another move

31 08 2006

So I moved again today. I’m now established in a small little town that doesn’t have a theatre less than a minute away. I’m suffering a bit of withdrawal after 4 plays in a week and a half. I miss the theatre and the swans and the great coffee and most importantly (don’t let the order fool you) my family (puppies included).

In my head, I know that living closer to school makes sense – I just don’t feel like being sensible today, I guess.

My room here is nice. A bit plain. I haven’t brought a lot so nothing really says that it is Me yet and I’m not sure if it ever will. With going home on weekends (weather permitting) I feel like there isn’t much need.

I’ve been feeling tired all day. So tired that I felt my eyes almost closing twice during conversation. How rude and on my first day too.

I did bring the tome with me. Reading is not going very quickly. Probably because my arms get too tired from holding it up.

Not that its any of my business to tell you what to do but I would encourage you to decorate and make the place your own despite the fact that you are going home on weekends. I think we highly underestimate the importance of making our space ‘ours’, making it comforting. I highly advocate that among my employees with their offices and feel it is even more important in a place that one is living in, regardless of how much actual time is spent there. Best wishes in school this semester!

Thanks for the advice. I probably will end up decorating it a bit. I’ve never been able to stand empty walls. I’m glad to hear that you advocate this practice among your employees. I worked in an office once where no one had anything up and I think maybe that contributed to the overall vibe of impersonality.

I hate workspaces without personality. I think you can maintain a sense of professional decorum while at the same time surrounding yourself with some things that make your work environment feel like a welcoming space. I haven’t done any kind of research but it HAS to help create a positive work environment.
