Staff Picks: Fun things on our desks 

As the semester is rapidly approaching a close, many of us are spending more and more time at our desks studying for finals, working on papers or preparing presentations.

This little guy is a hand-carved figurine of Toothless from “How to Train Your Dragon” my mom got me a little while ago. It’s one of my favorite movies and this little dude looks super cool on my desk.

I have this cute little pear-shaped bowl that I keep hand cream in. I’m obsessed with it. It’s life changing.

My coworker Brenna invented this game where you try to throw magnetic beads at a sticky note and get three in a row, sort of like tic tac tow meets connect four.
