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?
