Ever since I moved into my new place nearly 18 months ago and configured my ideal workspace, I’ve been spending loads of time at my desk. At least 75% of my waking life is spent here and that percentage will certainly be increasing as I prepare for my qualifying exams. Even though I’m a homebody, the idea of having to stay put for marathon reading sessions is terrifying. As a self-professed daydreamer, it’s hard enough keeping my mind from floating away let alone my physical presence. So I’ve developed a coping mechanism that will hopefully improve this experience: candy.
