Since I was away for most of the Holiday Break, my best friend and I just got around to exhchanging holiday gifts. What she got me was so very on point and a lot of them were very fitting for a grad student, so, I wanted to share.
She wrapped everything in Star Wars paper which I figured was a good sign.
First off, cotton candy for those late night study sessions when I need a sugar rush. Am I the only person who still likes cotton candy as an adult? No one I know seems to share my love. . .but this much sugar is definitely helpful in grad school.
A reusable coffee cups, but one of those really cool ones that looks like a Starbucks cup. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to make more of an effort with sustainable products so this is very fitting for that. It is also fitting because I drink an insane amount of coffee and tea. Those are two staples of grad school
Cute decorative boxes! One for the first letter of my name and the other for my love of ampersands!
A pen shaped like Hermione’s wand and a bookmark to go with it. I already put the bookmark in one of my text books to make it a little less painful to read and I am so excited to take notes in with the pen.Cute little supplies for my office. And another ampersand thing.
Ravenclaw/Harry Potter themed planner stickers from Prince Paper and A Melancholy Moose (who shows what they look like in a planner in this blog post. I will make sure to take pictures of mine when I have that week planned).
And a Ravenclaw candle that smells like parchment and blueberry pie. Seriously. It smells amazing.
In other words, my best friend is seriously the best.
