7 Productive Things You Can Do Literally Right Now
Start writing a post

We've all have a few hours where nothing was urgent. Maybe we spent it watching Netflix, shopping online, on Youtube, or even scrolling mindlessly through our social media. There are things that we can do in our spare time that better us and -news flash- not all of them are boring.

Start on your next week's homework.


You have a syllabi from each class. You know what's next. Get started on it.

Go running


Running has many benefits. Even if you start with walking, it's better than being idol.

Drink Water


You are literally about 70% water. Your body needs it for everything that you do. You'll feel more rested and have better concentration rates if you're better hydrated. Also, those pimples you have are no match for daily cups of water.

Increase your Vocabulary


This is not to impress anyone. This is just to contribute to your own personal evolution. Learning new words could help your essays or help you communicate in a professional setting better. At the very least, it'll stop those moments where you're asking yourself "What's the word?"

Reconnect with Someone


Is there a good friend in your life that you just haven't spoken to in a while? Maybe you live too far way to go meet with them, but having a phone conversation could brighten their week as much as it would your own.

Delete Clutter from your Phone


I'm sure we all know someone with way too many pictures and screen shots that they don't need. Or maybe we know a person whose phone is loaded with apps the never use. And yes, that person is always us. Clean up your phone.

Start a New Netflix Show


We all have a moment to spare for a good Netflix show that will make us laugh, tug at our heartstrings, or teach us something we don't realize we needed to know. Here is a good list of critically acclaimed shows.

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.

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.
