Okay ‘pet’ may be a loose term, but I highly recommend that students get something that resembles some form of a pet (at least to them). I personally have had 2 Siamese fighting fish (Aether and Felix) and a cactus (Spike). Honestly, pets help you study!!!
- They aren’t too noisy (Felix only splashes when hungry).
- They keep you company (trust me their presence is almost like having a real human sitting beside you).
- Watching them proves a great, short study break (however, at one point during finals I had to relocate Aether from my desk…staring at him > studying).
- They just generally improve your mood (cute pet = happy person = happy studier = better focus = better grades…look how happy I am with Felix!!!)
For non-pet owners, have I convinced you yet?
