At work this week a woman told me she was looking for a desk clock for a friend but she couldn't find a decent one anywhere because apparently, "People just don't use desk clocks anymore! They just look at their computer." This got me thinking that indeed the desk setting is a dying thing. What with laptops and mobile phones people are taking their "desks" with them and cannot be weighted down with carrying around tape dispensers, staplers, etc. in their pockets.
Even being only 25 years old I'm a little old-fashioned. I still send out cards for holidays rather than e-cards, I have a tangible calendar to keep track of my daily duties instead of using my phone, and yes I even have a desktop computer surrounded with desk trinkets.
So this little ditty about desk accessories is my present push to keep the past alive before the future digital world takes over entirely.
