Sofa Goblin | The Daily Geek 329

On This Day 2021

My WFH station has been the living room for the past few weeks and I’ve been a total sofa goblin. Today I made the long commute to my home office and sat down at a chair instead of in a ball. First I needed to clean my desk and make it a home office I can actually work in.

Thankfully my MacBook Air easily went back into clamshell mode with my HP monitor. I found using the blue VGA cable works 100% better than the HDMI lightning cable which can be so temperamental.

Once I’d cleaned and set everything back up, I decided to make a little art wall behind my screen. Previously I’d had some postcards washi taped to the wall but I have this lovely Blythe art piece that I picked up in La Palma airport 10 years ago and it fit perfect by my desk along with some cute clip frame art.

  • Random Thoughts
    • How long is everyone waiting to get their 3rd vaccine (aka fully vaxxed for now anyway) after the first 2? I had my first shot in June and second shot in July. I was not well at all with my first 2 shots, full on sweats/chills for 4 days. It’s a sign of a healthy immune system response though so I’m told.

  • A social media manager can never truly leave Instagram, it’s just not working for me as a ‘personal brand’. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Great for business though.

  • I often wonder out of my 1,000+ Twitter followers how many of them have me muted? I’d rather just have the unfollow tbh.
