Videos to Watch While Procrastinating

First off you're already procrastinating if you're reading this so don't deny it.

It's finals week or it will soon be finals week for most of us students out there, and from one procrastinator to another, I'm going to come out and say that when I'm studying I take way to long of breaks to avoid going back to work. Most of the time since I'm already on my computer, I will just spend my breaks on youtube clicking on any entertaining videos I see. Now if you're reading this, first off you're already procrastinating so don't deny it and second take a look at some of these nice fun entertaining series of videos that will give you a chance to catch your breath before getting back to work.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

This is a modern retelling of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" set in modern times, where Elizabeth Bennet is a Communications Major documenting current events in her life as she finishes up her senior year of college.

It's an amazing series that I keep finding myself rewatching because it's just so cutesy and well done. It's something that any Austen fan will love.

Pinterest videos

This series really got me into checking out and seriously questioning the realness of most pinterest crafts we see online. In this series of videos, real life husband and wife Corinne and Rob test out all of the popular Pinterest crafts that we sometimes wonder if we should actually try out and let us know if they are actually worthy of making.

Warning: A some of their videos do contain swearing and blood from craft injuries.

The making of the Hobbit documentary

If you're prepared to go in for some hardcore procrastination check out this little documentary of how they made the first Hobbit film. It's super interesting, to see how everything came together and you can really see the passion from the people who worked behind it. Also Orlando Bloom makes an appearance in it as Legolas the camera man!


I've mentioned this creator once before in my article on "How to Survive a Haunted House" , but I think she deserves another mention with her very impressive videos.

Be prepared to feel like you might have a chance at attaining some special fx makeup skills as you watch these awesome face/body paint videos done by a funny and all around nice artist, Lex.

Cinema Sins

You know that person who loves to point out everything wrong with a movie, well imagine if that person made a channel. Now the basis of this channel is to say that no movie is without sin, but it's great to watch these videos when they are critiquing a film that you just weren't a fan of and it can get pretty hilarious when it spots that fault you noticed to a T.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
