Ten Things I Can’t Do Without

  1. Post-it notes
  2. My four wool bras and countless wool panties
  3. ChapSticks (I have at least five on hand)
  4. Reading glasses
  5. A very large handbag—it doubles as my office
  6. A tram/bus/subway pass with enough cash to get me home
  7. My smartphone and my laptop
  8. A glimpse of a body of water
  9. Friends and family
  10. Coffee with milk and sugar—a habit I acquired at Stanford after those all-nighters and never have been able to break
