Authors at Their Desks

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Today marks a monumental moment in my quest for full-time employment. As a temporary employee at a government agency, I often find myself standing in front of the scanner, watching with glazed eyes as a sheer piece of paper goes left, then right, across the tiny machine until a green check mark identifies that I completed my task. So today, I got an office. A dingy office I will share with the most raucous staff member. The office is painted in a bright Minnesota Vikings purple, with dents adorning the walls. It's a windowless room and I am in the back corner. Some would gawk at this milestone by explaining that I would have been better off at my small cubicle that shared a wall with an oversized printer, but I my disposition sees this as a victory. Step one in defeating the Temp Trap. Below are documentations of authors at their desks.
