Next to the window, always with my pen and paper, some water nearby, usually some coffee or tea, and resting on my DIY laptop stand.

I really want to add some cable organization and better headphones.

You don't use a mouse ? :o

Good spotting! I don't use a mouse much. Most of my work is UI development, so I use one to test mouse interactions. Otherwise I mostly use keyboard commands thanks to vscode+vim, vimium, spectacle, alfred, dash docs, and a shortcut to the OSX menu search.

I do play some video games though, so for that I take it off the stand ;)

This is really neat !
I tried vscode+vim but I felt like I couldn't "express myself" easily with it. I guess I should train more !

It took me a while, but now I miss it - I even tried to use vim commands inside this text input!

I started out with VIM Adventures and just using HJKL to move around, but I would put a sticky note on my monitor each week with new useful commands to learn. I'm still learning!
