7 Habits Of Highly Productive Procrastinators

7 Habits Of Highly Productive Procrastinators

It took me a month to write this article.

1. Netflix is your best friend and your worst enemy. The phrase "I'll just watch one more episode" is a very common thought in your head, and soon that one more episode turns into you binge watching an entire series in the matter of a few days or a few hours. Sometimes you can't even bring yourself to get out of bed because you have made Netflix your first priority.

2. Amazon Food Pantry is a gift from God. The fact that you can order food online now and get it delivered to me is honestly the best thing that has ever happened in the entire world. God bless who ever came up with that holy idea. However, since you already struggle leaving your dorm room, this just makes you even less likely to socialize with actual real life people. It's a blessing and a curse (mostly just a blessing).

3. You've become an actual expert on stalking people on social media because you tend to gravitate towards doing that rather than doing actual work. First you start out stalking a random person you knew in high school, and a few hours later you're stalking their sister's husband's mother's best friend's sister.

4. When you finally start to do work, you become overwhelmingly tired and decide to take a 30 minute nap....... or a three-hour nap. However, in your mind you are actually doing yourself a favor, you can't do work if you're tired obviously.

5. Doing anything and everything other than what you actually have to do. Have a five-page paper due tomorrow? It's time to clean your room, organize your desk, fridge, closet, and drawers. Then you volunteer to clean your friend's room, and then organize their desk, fridge, closet, and drawers. Then maybe, if you're lucky, you'll find the time to start all of your ACTUAL work.

6. You literally can't function without coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine. All the all nighters that you spend starting and finishing your work make it impossible for you to even be alive without caffeine. If you don't get caffeine ASAP you might either kill someone because you are so grumpy or you might actually explode.

7. In your mind, Sundays are the absolute worst because you know that you have to go back to a life of responsibility but you really just can't bring yourself to do anything important. You make promises to yourself that this week will be different, and you're absolutely going to do all your work in advance this week. However, in the back of your mind you know you will still leave everything to the last possible second. The promises you make on Sundays are just supposed to make you feel like a better, more accomplished person.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
