The fumes, the fumes

I'm mostly settled in my new office. It still smells of fresh paint, but I can live with that for the next few days.

Blessed peace and quiet at last! I hear road noise from the highway, but it isn't too bad. Between being 3 floors up and the huge tree outside my window, the road noise has been dampened considerably.

So long printer, fax machine, photocopier, electric stapler, secretaries, conferences, meeting attendees, elevator and general chit-chat noise. I'm tucked away in a little corner far from the madding crowd.

Hello windows! One whole wall is all windows. I missed you windows...

When I first started working for this company, I had the office right next door. At that time, I could look out over the top of the tree. Trees grow quite a bit in 8 years... I look forward to the spring when the squirrels will perform their annual acrobatics again.

I am technically out of the executive wing, and this office is a tiny bit smaller than my last office. However, I feel like I've been handed a choice prize. In fact, I may actually put in some nails and hang some of my pictures and certificates. Since I've yet to last more than 2 years in the same office, I've been reluctant to go through the effort to actually hang stuff. I'm feeling the urge to mark my territory this time, though.
