The pros and cons of having my office window open:

Pros:

  • nice breeze
  • fresh air
  • feel closer to the outside world and nature

Cons:

  • sounds from the construction site are allowed easy access to my office and thus my ears
  • the tiniest of gnats can wiggle their way through the screen and buzz around me and land on my drink
  • the sounds from outside drown out the sound of the music from my mp3 player
  • occassional offensive odors (smoke, etc) from outside will invade my office
  • pollen

i’ll leave it open…
