Not with a bang, but with a whimper.

I start a new job Monday, a new position within the same company. This has been coming for quite some time, and while I understood it intellectually, the emotional wallop of passing my life’s work on to another person did not hit home until I moved my stuff.

I wrote an article for Artvoice a while back on how to decorate one’s office/cubicle, a subtle art to be sure. Just what does one want to represent? And how to do this? For now, my trappings are all hidden away. As I assert myself in the new space with time, though, these question will raise themselves again.

    I’ve moved offices so many times since I started at ECMC that I’ve completely lost interest in any sort of cubicle decoration. To be fair, I was directly involved in the creation of my most recent office area, and so I had input on things like lighting, paint, etc…

    one piece of advice: get a swingline stapler. They’re heavier and don’t bind up as much as that other brand.

    what’s the new job?

    um… what trappings? I saw your office once. Pretty tame. Now Gabby’s workspace- that’s a different story.
