Joseph at home and work

He lived and worked in an undecorated studio apartment with hardwood floors and dark curtains.  It was sparse, save for a bed, dining room table, bookcase, and a sofabed couch.  He never had any overnight guests.

Despite working from home, it was uncluttered.  He only needed a computer.  He had sold most of his college textbooks for extra cash, save a few books on hiking.  Hiking was free in Griffith Park, except the gas money to get there.  There was a stack of grad school applications on the floor, tucked in a corner that were at least three years old.  It was a passing thought in his mind but like most things, he didn’t want it badly enough.
