I was “escorted out” of the building without given time to collect my belongings. The opportunity didn’t allow for a dramatic Jerry Maguire-style exit. It was a non-eventful and unemotional scene that would’ve been cut out of the movie Office Space had it mistakenly been allowed to waste ten minutes of the audience’s time…
Although no one really misses work, I actually do miss my office work-space. I took care to create an efficient system that made it easy for me to reach for files, writing tools and other items relevant during the day.
I took care to make sure the items on my desk absolutely needed: Cordless keypad, mouse, notebook, phone and lamp. I also had one ceramic bud vase for the occasional flower I’d bring to the office with me to remind me of my balcony garden.
I also kept one of several piggy [mouse] banks on my desk for loose change. A “savings account” for daily treats to the vending machine.
