How do I make a small storage closet of an office livable for the next year? What kind of space saving measures/organizational things can I buy to make this work and keep myself sane?
I'm a graduate student, and I've been assigned a small office to share with the other teaching fellow that teaches the same class that I do. We will be sharing the same small office for the rest of the year.
Pictures of the space: 1 2 3 4
My desk/space will be the one on the left in the first picture.
I'm a ADD, seasonal affective disorder, light lover. It's a room with brick walls and one sad fluorescent light on top. I'm doing my best to get my life together (as one can see from my past questions
), but I'm worried that being in this room is going to give me just another reason to stop working and go fuck around on the internet for hours. I've just gotten used to the idea of getting into a routine and writing at my apartment, but I've got tons of windows and space to wander around and think. I'm going to be spending lots of time in here, and I can't just head back home to write due to my schedule.
What tips and tricks would you employ to make this a room I want to get work done in? What kinds of organizational techniques/supplies would you use to make this an office in which I can talk to students, research, write my thesis, and spend hours without going crazy?
