Title: Oddly Satisfying
Post by: Mac on May 14, 2016, 05:21:43 am
I don't remember how I ran across these Oddly, Ultimate Satisfying video compilations... I love them.

Just quick snippets of normal, unique, quirky, mediocre, events in the world. There's a ton of these.

It's such a little thing, but I bought a couple of different organizers and I'm just SO satisfied.  This sounds like an ad, but no, really, I'm quite happy with what I found.

I had a bunch of thumb drives scattered all over my desk, bits of odds and ends I picked up with various media on each that I don't want to delete but don't use often enough.  So I ordered the GUANHE Universial Portable Waterproof Shockproof Electronic Accessories Organizer Holder ( off Amazon and I just fell in love with the thing.  More than enough slots for the thumb drives I have.  I need to go through them and find out which ones don't work, and probably label the rest, but I love that it's all in one place and that there's room for plenty more.

So off that little geeky adrenaline rush, I decided I wanted to organize all the pencils on my desk.  Despite having two coffee mugs full of random pens and pencils (usually the ones I collect), I wanted something I could pull out that I could have immediate access to the tools I use the most.  Now, I'm not really a pencil case person, I had them in school and never liked them, but I found theLIHIT LAB Pen Case ( and... it was what I wanted.  For the desk, at least.  Enough space for my mechanical pencil and one of each size of pen, plus some of my coloured markers, erasers, and leads.  Another thing I like?  It came with this cute little diagram of how to stock it.  Very Japanese.

The thing is, though, as much as I like it... I want one twice the size and I want one half the size, and they don't make them.  Anything smaller is just a jumble bag, but I want something I can take on a trip that just has seven-eight pen slots in book form that I can close up... I suppose what I could REALLY go for is something uniquely styled to my own taste.  If I had any kind of manual dexterity, I could make my own... like Adam Savage would.  But I don't have that talent.

But oh my god, my desk is so clean now.  I also got a new, sleek black USB hub to replace my old, fraying Tardis hub.  The result is a desk that looks empty most of the time.  I SHOULD put my action figures away for a while (the War Doctor, Luka from Gokaiger, and the Fugitoid)... but would my desk might be too stark then.

I also tried to get an organizer thing for my cables, and I ordered two in hopes that they'd be what I want, but... no.  Gonn ahave to return those.  Unless... perhaps I can find another use for them.

I never even knew such a thing existed for Thumb Drives. I have a few that I just hang on a knob on my chair. I don't have nearly enough to warrant getting a binder....but it's cool to see that such a thing does exist.

Those kind of things exist for everything, if you know where to look.

It's taking so much willpower to not go out to the container store on my day off and get more stuff.
