Good view

A comfortable chair rated 5-10 hours for seating (who knew that was a thing!), I’m now in need of a work desk instead of a cute table; considering one with adjustable height for standing / sitting. Monitors and laptop headsets. Great lighting.

I got the same one from Staples in red. It’s pretty and comfortable, but I agree about the seat, after a while, I get a sensation (not pain) on the back of my thighs. It’s good, not great.

I received a job offer today for an entry level position. I lack experience in this field and didn't tick off all the boxes in the job description. I completed 2 conversational interviews + 1 additional interview with a skills test. They were very impressed with my skills test and all the interviewers seemed to like me a lot. I think the offer they gave was fair with market price & it pays more than my current job + benefits. I've always been told to negotiate but should I in this case?
