Cubicle Fashion

What a sad little existence in the "Before"...
If you've been following the blog for a while (and if you have, thank you, and if you haven't, there's still time to make amends ;) ) you'll recall that my company moved locations a while back.
I was unfortunately one of the few people who had to be downgraded from an office to a cubicle.

I'm not going to lie; I was not a happy little camper at the news.

However, one of those little nuggets of wisdom that you hear and forget, but stays lodged in your subconscious, floated to the surface. Something along the lines of "you're as happy as you want to be.*"
You can't choose the outcome of certain situations, but you can choose how you react to them. I certainly couldn't undo the decision to put me in a cubicle, but I wasn't going to freakin' wallow in it. So, I went out, dropped a few bucks at IKEA, and Bouclair Home, and I decorated the muthatruckin' shit out of my cubicle. Before I did that, I scoured Pinterest for some inspiration. Pinterest is super useful in so many regards.

My camera settings must have been off, because I did not choose electric green as my accent color; its a soft sage IRL.

UPDATE: 10/3/2014

With the influx of visitors from Buzzfeed (thanks for the nod Buzzfeed) I've revisited this older post, cleaned up the layout a bit, and thought I'd update you on the status of this cubicle (or "pod" as I've always called it). It is no more! Personell changes in have allowed for me to be moved into an office. I am still not loaded, so I recycled a lot of this decor for the new office. I think I'll take some pics and post that soon!

*Obviously, there are situations where this doesn't apply, I'm not going to suggest that EVERYONE just chooses to be happy or not.
