- A Dell UltraSharp U3415W 34-inch curved monitor. The fidelity of the display isn't amazing, but the real estate has forever spoiled me: trying to do flow work on a laptop or iPad (unless it's something like writing) is impossible now
- Magic Mouse & Magic Keyboard, because I foolishly believe RSI will never happen to me
- AirPods Max, which I cannot recommend buying in good faith (they are so expensive) but I truly love
- A 2019 Mac Mini for personal use and a 2018 MacBook Pro as a work laptop
- A hoarder-like slew of Amazon Basics Notebooks and the nigh-infamous Muji Gel Black 0.38mms for writing quick notes. (I have tried using "actual" notebooks and journals and planners and inevitably I fall out of favor with them — disposability and casual scribbling is too important for me)
- The same Logitech webcam pretty much everyone has
- A pair of [clears throat] JÄRVFJÄLLET Ikea chairs. Sort of weirdly high-backed, but super comfortable.
And, of course, the most important thing to outfit a hygge workplace: a seven-month old corgi puppy. Telemachus is not the best multiplier on my productivity, truth be told, but he represents the "life" in the whole "work-life balance" thing!
