Hey, this is Monica, quietly doin' my job as Web Producer for you. I thought I'd take a moment to show you where it all happens.
As it is Friday afternoon and I am absolutely exhausted from the project I've been working on all day, I thought I'd step away from it all for a moment to show you my workspace. This is where I sit for about 180 hours a week, or about 36 hours a day. Or so it seems sometimes...
No, I do not work at the same location as the Print Editors. Close enough to visit regularly, but not within paper-airplane-throwing distance.
Let's take a look at a few things that I find important for any workspace:
1. It is important to decorate you "area." I prefer posters, and if look closely, you'll notice that, of course, all the posters are of trucks, except for two Lamborghinis. I need to take a moment and organize my posters and add to my collection; it's on my list of things to do.
2. Coffee is very important for any work day. You'll notice two coffee cups, one from Starbucks and one for coffee at work. A pre-work trip to Starbucks is my newest hobby, as rolling into the office with coffee and a snackie make you feel in-control and ready for business.
3. That's my cell phone. Noone calls me and I don't call anyone because I'm WORKING, but it's close-by for emergencies. I use it primarily to do math problems (where do you think the above's 36 hours a day x 5 days a week = 180 hours a week came from?) I also enjoy the video of my truck hopping while I wait for pages to load.
4. That's my I-River, similar to my I-Pod (which is at home today). Helps me be "creative."
So, that's my workspace in a nutshell. Maybe I should have cleaned up first?
