Remember when I mentioned that I was currently decorating my bedroom? Well here in the coming weeks I will also be decorating my office and I am just over the moon about it. Not only are we decorating but my husband is building us a new super computer too. We can't even play World of Warcraft on our current one. The horror!
I have always thought that a world map was essential to making an office, office-y. They were my favorite part of classrooms during my school days. I remember staring at them, dreaming of all the cities I wanted to visit when I got older. I wondered what the people must be like that lived there, and I'm still the same today. Then in high school I met my future husband and looking at maps became a totally different, more emotional experience because we were in a long-distance relationship for 3 years. The song "Set Fire to the Third Bar" by Snow Patrol explains it best.
So to summarize, I really like maps.
