A space to write and work

Avatar

A native Californian now living in Paris with her Franco-Canadian-American husband and dog makes home above a cafe by a Parisian street. How cool is that?

I try to make my workspace as pleasant as possible. There’s my beloved old iBook, of course. A dictionary. A cup of tea or coffee. An iPod for listening while I work. A chinese paper box, a past birthday gift from my best friend in California, because I find I always have to jot down random notes when I’m working. And also, a Waterman pen, which I splurged on after my first paycheck of my new job. After years of Bics, writing with a very smooth and good quality instrument just felt like such a deserved luxury. Je le vaux bien.

When I plan lessons, the space changes a bit. Out goes the laptop, in come the grammar books, pens, pencils, highlighters and old-fashioned pad of Rhodia paper. And of course, the cup of tea or espresso.

  1. chris: Think of it this way; the longer you wait, the better and more feature-rich those little monsters will be. I bought a MacBook Pro earlier this year, and heaven knows how many days I sulked when I saw the new ones with more powerful stuff going and with brighter LED displays.

    mai-ling: I go for big workspaces cus I naturally work up (I’d like to believe) a productive clutter in such a short time.

    Thanks for dropping by, guys.

  3. i love small space desks, but i have
    so much work that evolved around my
    laptop and work area that i can’t have
    just a small little table for my
    necessities. i need a big table top
    plus all the other things that goes
    on between my music and book project.

    i have tried too.
