My desktop is not always the most organized. During the semester it is piled with textbooks, notes, and reminder Post-Its. There are specific items I use throughout the year – my desk essentials.
My laptop is a staple object on my desk. I use it throughout the day to edit posts, respond to e-mails and complete research for new posts. My laptop usage increases when a semester is in session. I bought my MacBook Air when I began university.
CALENDAR + PLANNER
I keep both a calendar pad and planner on my desktop. Both pieces of stationary track important dates, assignment deadlines and reminders. As my planner is portable, I take it with me when out of the house.
A teal blue clasped notebook holds all my blog post ideas. I track each date and post topic. I found this notebook at my local Chapters-Indigo. While this notebook sits next to my laptop most of the time, it is small and portable for travelling.
I stay hydrated with a combination of coffee and water. Both a water bottle and coffee cup remain on my desk while I work. I drink Keurig pods for a quick caffeine boost.
