12 Easy Ways To Procrastinate If You Lack Inspiration

Writing an article is 100x better than working on school work.

12 Easy Ways To Procrastinate If You Lack Inspiration

Today was my first day of junior year. In addition to still being mistaken as a freshman, and watching a girl try and capture a squirrel, I added at least twelve things to my to-do list. One of the items on this list included writing an article for The Odyssey. After taking a week off, you would think I would have countless ideas about what to write. This was not the case, so here are twelve ways to procrastinate not only your school work but your weekly article submissions.

1. Take a nap.


Why not right? You had to know this was going to make the list.

2. Read your syllabi.


Even if it's for the tenth time.

3. Make even more to-do lists.


*aggressively makes lists for each day and time*

4. Make a snack.


Half an avocado with some chips? Don't mind if I do.

5. Meal prep for the week!


Might as well be productive right?

6. Watch a movie.


Or two or three.

7. Start a new series on Netflix.


Or start watching Friends for the 8th time.

8. Go see your fraternity brothers.


Might as well take a trip to see your friends.

9. Do some laundry.


*washes three shirts and one sock*

10. Make your bed for the fourth time.


Especially if you already napped.

11. Go see your little.


My little, best little.

12. Rearrange all of the furniture in your house.


New house, new me?

Procrastination is the best, can't wait for the rest of the semester!! Sorry, mom.

Disclaimer: I am the most motivated person I know, this is a one-time procrastination stop.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
