How I Roll: My Desk at Work Edition

Here’s a shot of my desk at work from last week.

Why? I have no idea.

I guess we can chalk this up to the “How I Roll” series of posts that provide detail regarding things you don’t care about.

What’s in the picture?

  1. My Post-it board. Every task goes on a post-it and is filed under a project or is slotted for a specific day of the week. Tasks that need to be done today are the post-its on my desk in front of my keyboard. old-fashioned? yes. but it works for me.
  2. My glasses. If I don’t wear them, by the end of the day my eyes feel exhausted.
  3. Pictures from my kids. They’re hidden to people unless they step into my cube.
  4. LA Times Crossword Page-a-Day. Some days I’ll fill in a few clues, some days I won’t touch it.
  5. Tissue Box. Not sure who that chick is, but I turned her into a pirate with a parrot on her shoulder.
  6. Advil. Got a full bottle back there ready to go at the first inkling of a migraine.
  7. U.S. Map. I love maps.
  8. Me and Erica. One of my favorite pictures of us, from a beach off the Pacific Coast Highway.
  9. Fluorescent Lights. Drive me crazy. See #6.

As you can see, things can get a bit cluttered on my desk from time to time.

What about you? Messy desk or neat freak?
