So, last year we ended up having Blapril during April to make use of the time that we suddenly had due to the lockdown and all of that. Then we ended up having the Blaugust Promptapalooza and while that has been fun… I’m not sure if I understood the rules fully and I ended up skipping one of the prompts since I was at my parents’ place at the time and I hence couldn’t post about it… and then I moved on and procrastinated a lot and… well, here’s Prompt #11 from the Blaugust Prompatalooza… a prompt about my workspace aka “A Place To Create”!
This post should’ve linked to USS… so here’s that post and check it out if you haven’t yet. Here is Krikket’s post – check hers out since she did write the first post on it.
Today, we hence talk about the place “where the magic happens” aka my desk where I create all the blog posts and where I also stream, work, eat, watch shows, study, and play games. I also hang out with people on there… and sometimes I even fall asleep on it. Ain’t that amazing? It’s a TOOMANY-in-ONE-type of deal… and I’ll show ya today what this place is about!
So, in the picture above you can see my desk here. That’s where everything happens. Generally speaking, I get tea, coffee, or anything else warm to drink before I start studying or before I work on things. My favourite mug usually stands right there on the right side of the desk. I feel like it doesn’t bother me too much. I tend to have games on the right monitor while having streams, Spotify, Discord or OBS open on the left. When I write blog posts, I tend to have the editor/Grammarly open on the right and my notes on a notepad on the desk. Works quite well for me.
As you can see I have blankets in the back there… When I stream it kind of helps with the audio… or at least I think it helps. I’m not entirely sure if it’s better than no audio-foam-stuff… it’s certainly not the same… but I don’t have space or money for that audio-foam-stuff. It may help… idk… The microphone is set up horizontally since the Wave 3 works like that, too. Up there it seems to work quite well but I may have to bring it closer to my face though but then I’ll see it in the monitor and I’ll get annoyed… maybe I’ll change the arm-setup as well. The arm is sitting on a side-table that is dividing my room into a chill and a work area. The work area being my desk and my bookshelves… and the chill area being the balcony door and the seating-thing on the ground where I tend to read blog posts, news, manga or books. I think separating the work and the hobby areas is important… but then again, gaming, streaming and blogging are also not work… so… yeah. It’s hard to do that anyway when you only have one room to function as dining, living, bed and work room, right?
So, this is basically how my room works. I’ll have to upload the pictures from my phone but I also have a tea-setup on here the side table with a candle to keep it hot and stuff while I work… while also keeping it away form my electronics/my rig. There is also my drawing pad there and the microphone and all of the sugar and tea stuff. My computer is sitting off to the side of things… far away from all the liquids in the world.
Apart from that I also am rocking that desk lamp behind the screen and I just turn it up and move it and stuff to illuminate my desk or my face based on what I need… works quite well, in my opinion.
That’s basically it. I hope you enjoyed this post! What do you think of my workspace? Would you like to know more? Ask me below!
