This week, they actually shut down the power in our office (and then declared the generator that they got for the neighboring building could also power ours). My co-worker and I elected to stay “down the hill” in the admin building for a sort of work-vacation.
But this also means my lovely standing desk is up the hill and I am not. I’m currently sitting in what we’ve termed “the reject hallway”. This office has a custom, built-in desk, which sounds fancy, but is more a collection of wooden scraps that someone bolted to the wall. No standing here.
Interestingly, though, I value much more being able to sit down.
So, I guess I feel kind of neutral about the standing desk right now? I don’t mind standing, and have a newfound appreciation for sitting. I’ve still not actually lowered my standing desk to sitting height–and mostly used my chair as a jacket holder!
However, it is super nice to be in the building where my users actually are, as opposed to the opposite end of campus.
