It's 4 PM, and work is starting to slowdown. I still have a stack of papers to deal with, but I'm about ready to fall asleep or just get a few minutes of shut eye. It's Monday, and I already feel exhausted. I guess that's what an early morning meeting can do to you. I've been running around the office making sure everything is ready especially that we have company members visiting. So far, the meeting was a success, and I'm just glad to be back in my office resting at the moment.
These days, my office looks boring. I took down the paintings last week, and I have a pile of documents on the floor. I still have to empty a couple of shelves and drawers; throw away stuff I don't need anymore. I am really bad at throwing things, as I seem to end up keeping most of it. Whenever I look at an old notebook or some outdated reference book, something tells me that "I might need it someday," so I end up stacking it back. This attitude totally defeats the idea of purging unneeded materials. As of now, I haven't thrown away anything. Who knows, I may never will.
Everyone in the office will be doing some office clean-up this summer due to a major office renovation. Admin said the actual work will start this week and may last until September. It's good they will be working at nights and weekends only because I can't imagine myself working while someone is hammering or drilling somewhere. My office will be getting a new paint and some new furnitures. So, while my walls are bare and my library is in chaos, I can marvel on the thought that soon my office will feel like home again.
