Procrastination 101

It's a skill.

Procrastination 101

As I sit here watching Kingsman: The Secret Service, I sit here wondering, "Should I write my Odyssey article?"

I probably should; my editors can be pretty scary when they're angry. We don't like them when they're angry! But what can I do to procrastinate? I have a few ideas! But not until I've finished watching Kingsman...

My number one choice of procrastination is messing with Dan, my suitemate. Just now, I sent a text to his roommate saying:

'Dan, you're dumb'

And so I tell him to say that to Dan, which he does. Dan's reaction? The exact same as the above. Someone call NASA because my sides are in orbit.

If Dan isn't around, I just ask Caleb, the roommate mentioned above, a question regarding film scores. Once I walked in on him talking to himself in the mirror. My biggest mistake was asking him, "Why are you talking to yourself in the mirror?" His response was something along the lines of "Have you heard of allegorical music?" The following conversation evolved into one of Caleb's infamous sermons. You see, Caleb loves film scores more than life itself. This particular sermon was about film music that is representative of itself. He had previously spent four hours running to the band room to write down all his thoughts and blast the score that made him think about the allegory. The score? The Peanuts Movie.

By the time I got to Caleb, he was winding down because he had figured it all out. He gave me a summary of his last few hours. Six hours condensed into one. Halfway through, everything he was saying went way over my head, so I just started smiling and nodding. I hope one day I'll be as passionate about something as he is.

If both Dan and Caleb are around, we watch movies so Caleb can analyze the score afterwards and make Dan uncomfortable. We even have a list of over 30 movies Dan hasn't seen but has to see, Kingsman being one of them. Dan liked it. He said it was the best on the list so far, even better than "How To Train Your Dragon 2!"

If I can't find Caleb or Dan, I mosey my way over to the music building and practice tuba, but this only happens once in a blue moon. Fortunately, I can only practice for a few hours without going crazy or security kicking me out, so at some point I have to actually go back to my dorm to write my article.

Once I return, I realize that there are some tasty programs on my computer I haven't opened in a while. Path of Exile, did you get a new update? Oh my, it seems as though it was accidentally clicked! It would be a shame if I just exited out without giving it attention!

After I have sufficiently procrastinated, I will go to a writing place and start writing my article.

At 2 in the morning.

Oh look! Facebook!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
