How Not To Do Work You Were Supposed to Do

I almost didn't write this article to prove a point.

How Not To Do Work You Were Supposed to Do
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

With midterms coming up, a lot of you are probably under a lot of stress and pressure. I don't want to add to the fire, but just remember that these exams that you're taking have the potential to change your life's trajectory; a lot of your future bosses think that standardized testing is a good way to weed out the weak, and that if you can't live up to a certain level of expectations, you might as well be a hobo on the street. Don't think about all of that because it's just the subjective opinion of a dumb college student.

But do you know what's not subjective? The fact that you definitely do not want to do any work.

Luckily for you, I have many ways of not doing any work. Stop being productive and disappoint your parents for one more second with me. "Disown" is just a silly verb; nobody really does that, right?

1. Drop everything that you're doing.

That little boy is gently dropping his things. He is not picking them up, I've asked him myself. Simple enough, right? You are mistaken. There is a technique to dropping everything that you're doing. First off, you have to drop everything from a reasonable level. For example, if you're sitting on a bed, just slam your book straight down to the ground. The more force you apply to your personal or rented objects, the more tired you get. And obviously, the more tired you are, the less incentive you have to pick up your things. It's a science, really.

2. Go to sleep until you pass all of your deadlines.

Drool gets you extra points. This is pretty self-explanatory. If you don't know how to sleep, I have an article all about it. Coincidentally, I almost fell asleep before submitting this article and I almost passed my deadline. Do you see how effective this method is? There are probably statistics out there that correlate amount of hours somebody spent sleeping in and how many jobs they've lost.

3. Go to sleep until you pass all of your deadlines.

I know I've already explained this point, but I honestly think it's the best way to go. Anyway, moving on.

4. Go on a trip, spend all of your money, and never go back home.

Chain not included. The best way to avoid all of your problems is to get as far away from them as possible. Somebody who was probably a good influence in my life taught me how to ignore responsibilities, and I haven't shown any potential for anything since. But whenever some fool gives me money, I use this money to go on excursions to take my mind off of everything stressful. By everything, I mean the lack of anything stressful that I have. I have never lifted a finger in my life. Do you think I'm writing this article? I got a ghost writer to type things out as I say them. I pay him in friendship and snacks, and he'll never leave my side because he is a dog.

I don't know what home is, but as long as my dog is by my side, everywhere is home.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
