Arrangement for Awkward Studio Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: I've been living in my very own for the first time ever in a studio apartment for a couple months now and instead of loving every inch of it, I am simply tearing my hair out on how I should arrange my furniture. I've spent more money buying and selling and buying and reselling furniture than I did on the security deposit for this place. It's 450 square feet. I've included the awkward floor plan.

The slanted wall has a heater unit attached at the bottom, so I can't do much there. There is also an awkward nook in which I've placed my brand new parson's desk into. I also own a small sofa, chaise lounge, small expedit shelf, and another 3 cube organizer. I'm aware there is too much furniture in the place as is, but I'm in the middle of one of my sprees right now. I would just like to settle in, get rid of what I don't need or love, and start enjoying this place. I've enclosed the current furniture arrangement as suggested by my best friend, who does not like sofas against walls and thinks this is the coziest arrangement thus far.
