When you work in a small office room, you need to make what little space you have yours. At least I do. There are other positions in the company I work for where people have smaller spaces and are allowed a 12" x 12" space to "personalize" their desk. Literally. I don't know about you, but my personality doesn't fit into a 12" x 12" space. Seriously. So far my office roommate and I have managed to hide away where we aren't noticed or regulated much. I mean, I imagine facilities would get upset if we burned incense and brought in a cook stove. But we can hang what we what, we have a little fridge and a microwave, an electric tea kettle and a Christmas tree when it's the season. And thank God we have a door we can close and we can even lock.
Where do you work? And do you have a bit of freedom or is your workplace very regimented?
