glatt, you've reached third base. It's an achievement but you can't go back so the only option is home. Unless you get caught off base, whether you score or not is mostly dependent on others. Good luck.

Update, I've discovered it's not the open floorplan, it's me!

I'm depressed wherever I work, I just look to blame various things so that I can externalize it.

Er, I don't expect any kind of response to that. It is true but sometimes you just gotta howl somewhere and this was the place to do it this time.

Well if you have to howl, be courteous and do it in the garage, or the Cellar.
Blaming it on work would seem logical, when you lose the ability to blame your lodgings, or significant other.

Well, this gives me pause. I was really hoping my soul crushing depression was born out of being broke and unemployed, and would lift when I found work.

You're scaring the passengers.

No, it won't automatically lift, but sure makes it a hell of a lot easier to fight.

Just saw an artist's rendering of my new "office." That will be me over on the left, as seen from the desk of one of the other people in this 4 person room.

I completely lose my privacy, but at least my back is to a wall. Friday was my 25 year anniversary at this place. I've had a private office for 22 of those years. Not huge, but 10' by 12'. Decent size. No windows.

At least I have a job, right? That's what people are saying these days.

12.5" sit on glass divider? Sounds painful.

This is where you post cute family photos, children's drawings, humorous signs, all up and down the glass until they can't see you anymore.

A row of bushy houseplants along the desk should help square things away.

The broken glass thing is awesome. I'm sorry now that I won't be there on April Fools yet.

Plus. strategically placed motivational messages on stiff card could increase the height by about 6 inches
