This is ni vu ni connu
"My mind is not as neat as my desk but I am a bit compulsive about keeping a clean work environment. When my desk is messy I can't seem to think straight and I try to procrastinate by cleaning instead of writing. The floor plan of my new apartment is all open space, which means that I can see my desk from the kitchen, living room and dining space. That gave me all the excuses I needed to purchase a flat monitor and slim speakers. Who wants to look at a big beige monitor when you're having a candlelit dinner?
On the wall next to me is a painting I purchased from Rachel, a blogger whose site I enjoy reading and a talented artist I "only" met on the Web. From my blogging spot, I can look to my right at the large windows overlooking the quiet alley behind my apartment or at the fireplace in front of me."
