How To Best Use Awkward Built-In Desk?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into my first apartment and am trying to turn it into a home, but I'm stuck on one aspect: this awkward built-in "desk." It was built when people still used desktop computers, but it's too small to use as my proper desk (I'm in law school). Any ideas on how to fill this space? My TV won't fit and it's positioned behind my sofas. Any advice?
