The 13 Steps Of Procrastination Told Through GIFS

Whether it is doing homework or writing a paper, everyone avoids doing what they are supposed to. There always seems to be a pattern of procrastination, no matter who you are. You might find yourself following these 13 steps of avoiding an important task.

1. Check your phone

Before I get started, I have to check social media. I'll look to see what everyone is up to, then I'll be ready to go. You never know when a twitter fight will break out!

2. Change clothes

If I stay in my jeans, I am going to be really uncomfortable. Let me get into some sweatpants and fuzzy socks so I can be nice and comfy when I study.

3. Get a snack

Well, before I really get started I need to grab something to eat -then I'll be focused and ready to go. I cannot sit here and let my stomach growl the whole time, so I might as well get ahead of the game.

4. Watch Netflix

In order to be fully focused, I have to know what happens between these two characters. I only have like two more episodes of this season anyways... might as well finish it!

5. Play with your pet

But look at how cute my baby is! Let me go take a selfie with him real quick, then there will be no more distractions.

6. Take a nap

In order to be truely, 100% focused, I better go ahead and nap now so I am at my best when I go to study. I will wake up refreshed and ready to go!

7. Text your friend for "help"

Hold up, I do not get this; I better text my BFF so I know what I am doing before I get started. Wait- I have to tell her what happened in third period first...

8. Look on Pinterest

Oh, I was looking at the cutest little fairy lights the other day; let me pull those up before I forget about them! How did people survive without this?!

9. Reorganize your room

I wonder what my bed would look like by the window. You know, I have been meaning to rearrange some things- I better do that now or else it is going to bother me.

10. Daydream

I wonder what my crush is doing right now. I better wear something cute to impress him... but at the same time, I really want to wear sweatpants. Oh- I could wear those leggings that make me look good! Ugh, but I bummed it today and yesterday...

11. Turn on some music

Okay seriously, let me just play my song real quick- I will dance out the nerves and then I will be good to go for real this time.

12. Try a new hairstyle

For real, I'm just going to put my hair up in a cute way then it will be out of my face and I can focus. There was that one cute hairstyle on Pinterest I can try!

13. Give up

Forget it, I will do it later.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
