I walked off today with office supplies from one of the other research offices. What was it, you ask? It was a staple remover that I was messing around with while waiting for a meeting because I’m ALWAYS fidgeting with something. Whether it’s staple removers, beer bottle labels, phone cords…. If it keeps my fingers moving I’m happy.
Recently, I saw am online add from our local specialty toy shop, Toyrifix (if you’re in the Smith ville, Ohio area and you’ve never been… Drop what you’re doing and go, right now). The shop was advertising their new fidget cubes. What’s a fidget cube? Well, it is a cool little handheld that has all sorts of different fidget activities on each side. I had to have one!
So, I picked one up at Toyrifix and took it to work (let’s be honest, that’s where most of my fidgeting occurs during “thinking”) and I love it! It really helps me get on the zone and focus. I love all the different things you can do (roller ball, toggle, Clicky buttons) but my most favorite side is the switch.
If you’re a fidgeted or need a distraction from a different habit (like nail biting or lip chewing), I highly recommend checking one out.
So, how did I end up with the staple remover if I have my cool digit fidget now? Well, I took it home because this is my last full week at my current job and I didn’t want to leave it behind. #newadventuresonthehorizon
