Why the snails?

I rush: I have a tendency to read something, go yeah yeah got it good and jump right in. Yes, I am the student who completes an assignment a week ahead and realises just before submitting it that it’s either totally off topic or only addresses the last part of the question.

I rush, I get stressed and anxious too.

I use the snail as a reminder to s-l-o-w down.

And I really really like them! They are brave and beautiful and slow.
