Pretty Paper in the Office: Calculators

I refuse to let go of some things; calculators are one of those things. I’ve used the app that comes standard on phones, but there’s something about the tactile act of pressing the keys that lets me get into a flow in a way I never could on a touchscreen. (I also can’t get over the accuracy issue. I always mess up on the phone!) After attending my first NSS a few years ago, it became obvious that with some work, it’s just better to have an actual calculator in hand. Luckily there are still plenty of great options out there for those of use who like to crunch those numbers the old school way.  – Julie

Pretty Paper in the Office: Wall Clocks

Whether at the office or in the grand scheme of things, time flies. (Um, how is it fall already?) When I’m in the thick of it, I find myself glancing up at the clock, even if I happen to be in a room that doesn’t have one! Depending on your choice of clock, they can even pull double-duty as functional pieces of art or sculpture. No matter the style in which they do it, a wall clock will always make sure you’re right on time. - Julie
