Amulet #14 - Stop The Wasp

I had to make this WASP badge, as this piece of anti-exam stress advice I found last night was just far too good! This is the first of the amulets to come with instructions and an overly complicated mnemonic - something that may well appear as a recurring theme. I really like the idea of sitting there, blank-mindedly, in the exam, trying to remember what 'Stop The Wasp' actually stands for...

I am hoping that this week I will actually get round to making the amulet to aid in focusing on important tasks, as my procrastination tactics seem to be reaching new depths. I caught myself earlier making notes about my fondness for wasting time by reading blogs about productivity techniques - surely I can not be alone in this compulsion?

I definitely need some kind of physical restraint to remind me of what I should be doing and not getting wildly sidetracked - some kind of blinkers maybe?


  1. Brilliant! 'Stop the Wasp': I'll remember that...

    I love this project!

  2. Cheers James, glad you're enjoying the project!! It's quite hard work getting these things made and posted everyday, so it is great to know that people are into it. If you've got any suggestions, let me know...
