Today, I bought a bonsai plant for my cubicle at work. After writing Components of a Comfortable Office, I decided it was time to act and make my dreary tan and white cubicle at work a little nicer of a place to spend countless hours staring at my computer.
The first thing I did was clear the desktop of everything I haven’t touched in a week (filled the filing cabinet). I figure that if I do not need to find anything in the next month or two, I can just dump it all in the recycle/shred bin.
But then, the vast white space seemed a little too vast. So, at “lunch,” I headed over to The Home Depot and purchased a bonsai plant (below) for $11.97. I am a little skeptical as to how long it will live since there is no sunlight in my cube and the place is rather dry.
With the beginnings of a more comfortable cube in place, I will keep you posted as to how this develops. I am thinking I need some dark cherry wood inserts, a zen garden, and a mock fireplace to really give it that custom look.
