Ways To Procrastinate And Get Absolutely Nothing Done

"I work better under pressure." - All People Who Procrastinate

Ways To Procrastinate And Get Absolutely Nothing Done

Procrastination. You know - the act of delaying or postponing something. You've procrastinated, I've procrastinated, we have all procrastinated at some point in our lives. That's nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes you just need to put off that big project until the last possible minute. No big deal. You've got plenty of time.

Sometimes, I get bored with my usual procrastination tactics so, recently, I have been thinking up new ways to fill my time while not doing my homework. Here are some ideas to help you procrastinate more:

1. Lay in bed and ponder life for three hours.

Procrastination in it's purest form.

2. Be sure to think about the most important questions.

Isn't it though?

3. Try to figure out what you are going to wear next week.

Afterwards, you can procrastinate cleaning your room.

4. Go to a comic book convention with your dad.

It could take days to sift through all of the comic books at a comic book convention.

5. Buy a bunch of Beanie Babies you found at the comic book convention for everyone you know.

Who doesn't like Beanie Babies??

6, After the comic book convention, go out to eat at Panda Express.

Sweet fire chicken breast is super delicious!

7. Ask your dad to help you come up with more ways to procrastinate.

Me: "Dad, what are some ways I could procrastinate?" Dad: "Ask me tomorrow."

8. Realize that you have been sitting at Panda Express using their free Wi-Fi for the past two hours and the staff is like:

Yeah... I should probably move along and do something with my day...

9. Bum around a thrift store for an afternoon.

You never know what treasures you will find. Well, after you sift through all of the junk.

10. Shop for vintage card shuffling machines.

Because what else should you be shopping for?

11. Drive home and sing along to Beach Boys' music in the car.

"I'm definitely procrastinating. There's nothing like procrastinating. Ooo Bop Bop Procrastination..." Wait, those aren't the words?

12. Order a pizza.

That's right. Bacon wrapped crust. Little Caesar's Pizza knows what's up!

13. Sit down and eat that pizza while watching Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones with your family instead of doing your homework.

How in the world am I supposed to get anything done when I could be looking at young Harrison Ford's gorgeous smile?

14. Read online articles that you most likely found because your friend shared a link on Facebook.

This is you right now.

15. Do basically anything besides the thing that you are supposed to do.

You will definitely regret procrastinating later, but you don't have to worry about that right now.

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.
