I changed my mind & MYSKW: Λ

I changed my mind about TTT, mostly because I read the theme incorrectly. I thought it was top 10 books with a beach theme/setting, but instead it’s top ten books with “X” setting. And I chose Europe. And it was a problem narrowing the list down to just 10. So I had to choose a specific country in Europe, and I chose the United Kingdom. Big surprise, I know. I cheated just a little, but it’s my blog so it’s OK :).

  1. Discovery of Witches/Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
  2. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
  3. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  5. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
  6. Shakespeare, though namely Macbeth
  7. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol
  8. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary  Anne Shaffer & Annie Barrows
  9. The Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis – mostly set in Narnia, yes, but in normal world in England.
  10. In The Woods by Tana French – This is my biggest cheat, because it’s Ireland. But it’s close enough.

And now, on to the current state of our office. As I have mentioned, we are in the middle of doing some improvements, and this is what it looks like right now:

This is our normal office space. The carpet is in desperate need of a change. I don’t think any of us will miss it.

This is almost all of our desks piled up in one of the owner’s office.

Just a (very) small sampling of our 17,568 filing cabinets in one of our halls. You really have to be careful going around corners…

And this is our re-purposed conference room, when all 10 of us are currently located. We are affectionately referring to it as “The Sweatshop.” (By the way, that’s Mikki cheesing it up for the pic.)

I’m thankful that I get along with everyone in here, otherwise this would be awful. It’s actually kind of fun all being so close to each other (even though I have my earbuds in most of time, just like always), but I will be ready to have my own space back – I miss all my nerdy things & my pictures hanging on my cubicle walls. I do still have Yoda & Mumble sitting under my computer. I have enough trouble thinking with Yoda here, I can’t imagine what I would do if he wasn’t here to guide me with The Force.

Now for music…what to post? Well, I’m going with Walk the Moon, because they were at the top of my stream of SoundCloud & I like them :).

Back to The Sweatshop! 😉
