I got a new one. It has features I really dig, such as shelving above the desk itself, and a lot of space so that my hoop tape can be directly on my desk with me. It has features I dig less, such as a keyboard tray that is way too low for me and hurts my back, so the keyboard sits on the desk itself. I'll have to come up with some clever use for the keyboard tray.

Also, my old mini-desk had a junk drawer that I loved, because it reminded me of the junk drawer I used to have growing up. New desk has potentially HUGE drawers, but it turns out they're just there for file folders, and are open on the sides. I could probably take some pieces of plywood and turn them into full drawers, but will I? Doubtful.

Anyway, I'm feeling a mixture of happiness and sadness about the new desk. Green got the old one. I wish there were a way to raise this bugger up a few inches, that would improve things dramatically. A new desk CHAIR wouldn't hurt either, but the one I want is $400 (I'm unwilling to thrift that).

Oh yeah, I don't think I mentioned that I got New Desk at the thrift store - $40. Decent price for a huge piece of furniture! I'm sure I will adjust to its quirks soon enough.
