I have a “paper writing hoodie”:

I bought it probably 10 years ago, on the sale rack at Old Navy, for $1.50.

I don’t think of myself as superstitious or overly given to habit, but if I am writing a paper, I almost assuredly have this hoodie on. And this hoodie, after all these years, is not something you leave the house in either–which perhaps explains my unproductive sessions in my grad student library carrel?


And yes, that I am currently wearing it means posting this is a procrastination break. Thank you for noticing.
