A Bibliophile's Survival Gear

I'm currently buried in studying, but I figured I'd share my studying survival gear.

1. Fuzzy socks 
Because trying to focus with cold feet is nearly impossible.

2. Coffee
Is an explanation needed?

3. The Book Hound
My faithful, furry companion, who helps me to sniff out books on a regular basis. I just have to be careful that he doesn't eat my socks.Sock consumption is usually evidenced by the guilty face as seen in this picture.

4. A Wrinkle in Time
I think I've mentioned before that Meg is one of my favorite characters. When I'm feeling entirely intractable and cranky, settling down with this book at the end of the day always picks up my mood.

5. Chocolate
If it's too late for coffee and the dog decides to give me the cold shoulder, chocolate works wonders.

What's your survival strategy when you're swamped?


  1. Hmmm, I like your fuzzy socks idea. I might have to try that one out :) Also I would like a book hound, but sadly they're a bit short stocked at the moment. I consume copious amounts of tea, it's rather embarrassing. We're talking 3-5 cups a day here. Best of luck with studying!

    1. They are rather hard to come by and they do threaten to eat you out of house and home, so I totally understand that. 5 cups a day? Wow!
