15 Excuses For Why I Procrastinated This Article

Hey, I can explain myself, I swear.

15 Excuses For Why I Procrastinated This Article

1. Christmas.

That means I spent more than $100 on gifts for myself and family members, and family is a vital part of life. Without a family, I will not grow as a person in society, so I won't develop new ideas for Odyssey.

2. My dog ate my list of ideas.

Disregard the fact that I do not have a dog, or a set list of ideas. If only I was that organized.

3. I have severe writers block.

This one is actually true. I have been in a rut since the middle of November. I need inspiration to strike me just as much as I need chocolate.

4. I had stuff to do.

Lots of stuff. All very important stuff. Stuff you would not understand because it is so much important and interesting stuff.

5. I did not have enough original ideas.

This is true. Proof: The last 3 articles I wrote are so boring that they got less than 100 views total.

6. I did not have any pent up frustrations I could draw inspiration from.

Donald Trump won the election, I was upset, and then this happened. Someone please tick me off.

7. I had to try out a new nail polish.

Just a side note: I can not wear nail polish without a top coat because I pick at it when I get nervous or stressed.

8. My mom got me a cozy blanket I had to try out.

To properly test the softness I had to sleep for extended periods of time.

9. I like food.

Who does not?

10. I had an agenda to make as many "Elf Yourself" videos as possible.

Yeah, I don't have an excuse for why I spent 30 minutes making these.

11. I like shopping.

Margaux, you do not need 2 bubble bars, 1 bath fizz, new earrings, a new hat, a new crop top, a new dress, or any more chocolate. At least, that's what I tried to tell myself before I bought all of it.

12. Not enough sleep.

I needed after school naps, and they can range anywhere from 20 min to 3 hours.

13. My cats are too fluffy not to pet.

So. Cuddly. And. Adorable.

14. I had a bad feeling I would be cursed if I handed it in on time.

Bad juju. I do not need to turn into an amphibian any time soon. I was at a potentially high risk of being a frog.

15. My printer wasn't working.

I swear.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
