Trading spaces

January 3, 2018 - 10:55am
I have moved my office 11 times since I started working at MSU. I haven't changed departments (though our name changed once) or buildings, but have gone from the fourth floor, to the third, back to the fourth, back to the third and back again to the fourth. I often get confused which elevator button to push even now. (I also get confused as to what I've mentioned in my column before, so pardon me if I'm repeating myself. It happens after writing every week for almost five years.) Believe it or not, I don't even hold the record for most moves. My colleague, Rain, actually has moved more times. We're sure it's not because people are trying to get rid of us - well, pretty sure. I actually didn't mind all of the moves that much. There's something exciting about getting a new view, different layout and fresh perspective. Plus, there's zero chance of hoarding because throwing out is part of packing up, so my office is pretty organized.
