My room.

Chelsea and I moved from Las Vegas to Moscow, ID recently for me to attend school. After nine months of single bedroom upartments, we’ve upgraded to a two bedroom and I currently have a whole room dedicated to my computer and school projects. I made the monitor stand for my 28″ monitor out of a Ikea lack shelf that I ikeahacked. The keyboard fits underneath so I can use the desk for other things. The stand also raises the monitor to the ideal viewing height, which is 1/3 above eye level, 2/3 below. In the future I will probably get another drafting table like the one my computer is on and get rid of the folding table. It’s not level and drives me nuts when cutting mats on it. I want to build a couch at some point and when that happens I’ll move the dresser into a closet somewhere else in the apartment. All in all, though,  I love my room and my desk area.

Before some much needed under-desk cable management.

The cables, now hidden.

The computer, subwoofer, and our favorite Valve gnome.

The computer, and all five posters for Left 4 Dead framed!

    Ah Your Gnome….where did you get it? may i ask..I would like to have a Gnome like that. i cannot find it on Steam or any where else using google. can you point me in the direction or where you have gotten it from? Awesome Subwoofer by the way. I think it would be cool to see Dog somewhere used as something. just an idea. I like Dog from Half life2. Hope to hear from you soon about the Gnome. Take care.

    If you do a google search for “Jim with hands in pockets” you will get results for the garden gnome (who happens to be named Jim apparently). I ordered mine from here: http://www.snappyturtletrading.com/jim-hands-in-pockets-garden-gnome.html. I got it for $32 shipped because it was on sale for $32 and I found a coupon that more or less covered shipping. Be sure to shop around for the best price. Good luck!
