Geez. I never thought this would feel like one of the happiest moments of my life. Buying a desk and a chair.
You see, my apartment is really small. But I didn't really care, it had what I needed. A small kitchen, a toilet, etc. There was just one little thing I really missed. A computer desk.
I had a couch and a really low table (prolly like 40cm tall). Until now (Read: Since August 31st 2015) I had been placing my laptop on the table and leaning forwards from the couch, something which in no way could have been good for my back. Not at all
I started off by getting a table, an extra tall one at that. Since I'm way longer than I'd ever asked to be born. Eventually, I found a table that was 10cm taller than most others. (A typical work desk is about 70cm tall, this one was 80cm) I set it up and glory befell on me as suddenly, my regular table felt pretty much empty without my laptop on it.
But at last. I can use my laptop without completely breaking my back, life is great. Here, have a quick and dirty picture from right after I set it up:
I still wasn't sitting perfectly. Earlier my laptop was too low, now it's too high. Well it's better, but it's still not exactly optimal. I need a chair as well.
And hell am I glad I waited a day to buy the chair. I originally wanted to buy a chair that cost (Prices in NOK) 900, but that was a bit too expensive for me. So I had planned to settle for a cheaper model that cost 600.
But behold. The day after I bought the table. The chair that originally cost 900, went on sale for 750. Score.
Of course, it's a glorious mesh chair:
