Office Detritus

learning
I find bits and bobs of all manner of things in my office.

Today, I needed to move my monitor.

A bit of back story: I absolutely hate people looking over my shoulder at my computer screen. Even if it's ybunny. Just one of those quirks, I suppose.

I wanted it to face further away from my office mates. So, I pulled the monitor toward me...and it went dead.
On the one hand, I was excited, because I hate this monitor and making breaking it would get me one of the swish flatscreen ones that both of my office mates have. On the other, FLAIL! I HAVE WORK TO DO!

So, I started fiddling with it. I picked up the base to see what the cord was wrapped around, and a small piece of yellow paper came unstuck.

The note said, '[Name], when you get down and discouraged just remember that you have many people that love you and care for you. There's nothing better to be doing than learning. -[Name]'

I know who it was addressed to. He's finished and he seems like such a together and confident sort of person. It's nice to think that he had worries as well.

(I do feel a bit as if I'm snooping on my own office, though.)

This is completely not the point of the post, but...

Did you unplug it?

*snickers* I couldn't help it. Also, I really hope you get a nicer monitor. And honestly that note could be to you from me. :)

Oh, I did. The cord was wrapped around the base of the monitor, I couldn't see that it was, and when I pulled it forward, it pull out of the back.

But, don't worry, it was my first checkpoint. :)

You win at not pissing off tech support. :D

I should've known you were too smart to forget that. Forgive me. *hangs head in shame*

Heh.

I just really wish it was broken. I hate this monitor. :-/

I'll send you mine when I leave... cinema display anyone? Even if it is only 20 inch, it's fabulous.

I really appreciate you sharing that message with your readers. As I begin graduate studies this fall, I plan to put that in a conspicuous place to inspire me during the difficult times.

Me too!
