I like to think I’m a mostly-neat person. My office, however, would suggest otherwise. I can usually keep most spaces de-cluttered, but the hutch to the right of my computer is a weak point. I try to start every semester organized, knowing that by the end of the semester, that space will be a disaster zone of meeting notes, class preps, files, and student papers. This semester began without organization, and last week I finally tackled the problem.
While I was at it, I did some tidying up in the other corners of my rather modest space.
And I hung this art poster, on loan from my mother, who worked at the university museum when she was a grad student at Ole Miss.
Totally more fun than grading papers.
(Note to self: get a 2012 calendar already.)
