Hi, Pitch! I’m Ellie, back for your weekly Howdy Do It.
When I was in college, there was a little spell where I had a hard time sleeping. Mostly it was exam stress I think, but a friend told me that I should never do work in my bedroom (something I was very guilty of since I shared my house with roommates).
Since then, I’ve made a point to never work in my bedroom, and I’m a true believer that it helps with sleep problems. That made me wonder if it’s also a good rule of thumb to have a designated work place. One of the perks of a laptop is mobility, but for those days when you really need to buckle down and get stuff done, a clean and organized work space is probably a good thing to have. I figure when it’s serious work time, you should be in a different place from where you g-chat, tweet, facebook, and watch movie reviews. Right? After looking at all these gorgeous spaces, I think I’m ready to do a little organizing of the “office” (read: junk) room in our house.
