(Tiny) office space

So Nick, how'd the marathon go?
Ow. In a sort of freak accident I injured my knee at mile 7, had to stop at mile 16. Better luck next time.

In return for your patience while I spent the weekend preparing/injuring myself, here's another shot of my apartment: the office area. So it turns out I had juuuust enough space between the bookshelf and the front door to put a desk and chair. Which is nice, because the Ikea Expedit bookshelves are definitely deep enough to be double-sided. Yes, it's really close to the door when it opens, but that also makes it a nice little landing strip for grocery bags. I'm nothing if not efficient. It's also where I keep my keyboard, which I'm totally going to keep practicing, I swear.

The big reason I'm posting this is because I wanted to show off a poster I'd purchased months ago but never got around to posting on here; an Otl Aicher for the 1972 Munich Olympics. It's held in place with binder clips hung on nails, so if it's not perfectly level, I can adjust it without having to put in more holes in the wall.

I'm going to assume the rest of you had really fun weekends. What kept you busy?


  1. 16 miles. 26. They are all the same! Congrats on making it that far!

    And the poster looks great!

    1. Thanks! I'm still proud of my performance. I'll try and have more photos up as soon as I can.
