Procrastination is one of the most ancient sacred arts known to humanity. If you’ve been on our humble planet long enough, eventually come to learn it is also the hobby of many, and you shall most probably find the youth of our magnificent generation frequent it often. Maybe bit too much.
But for those who haven’t been enlightened, here is a step-by-step guide to learning to procrastinate like a pro. By the end of my enriching post, you shall find yourself wondering where that time went, and why you probably hadn’t used it to finish that novel or long essay.
Gather forth, eager learners!
That in itself, is enough said. Your first step if you want to procrastinate: log onto Twitter. And then let the magic of procrastination work itself over you.
2) Take some shelfies
Because nothing is better than posing in front of your books.
“BOOM YA. I have this book and you don’t.”
(Honestly, I don’t. I’m poor. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH HARDCOVERS COST? XD And mostly ransack my library. Or wait for my friends to supply it for me. Hint, hint.)
3) Surf blogs
Everything seems so much better when you have something to procrastinate for.
So, crash course on Tumblr: Deep posts. Amazing fanart. Amazing quote graphics. Amazing gifs. Amazing agfsgdjhjkl fangirl things.
You get the gist.
Side note: What is it with the Supernatural fandom and Tumblr? I haven’t even seen it but I know half the plotline and all the characters’ names. They’re EVERYWHERE.
In order to get the best procrastinating experience, spend a lot of time arguing with yourself on which quote to use as well.
6) Put your books in random places and take a picture
Imma take a picture of my babies now 😉
Go wild. Put it anywhere!
On second thought, not anyyyywheeree. Baby sisters are vicious with books. Beware.
7) Make Google think you’re a murderer
Search a) extensively for baby names when making a new character so they think you’re an expecting mother b) ways to kill people c) how to dispose off a dead body
8) Puns, puns, puns
Because I entered ten puns for a competition. No pun in ten did.
Still. Fun way to waste time. (excluding the fact that I’ll laugh at the worst puns)
9) Stare into nothingness
Afterall, nothing is more entertaining than silently screaming at the universe for the purpose of your existence.
10) Make book Christmas trees
Even though Christmas is 11 months away. Because you are awesome like that.
11) Ramble on, my friends
So there are many ways you can ramble on, but my advice to you for the best experience and annoying everyone to death with your otps is to fangirl at top speed with no stopping to take breaths and just moving onto the best topic ever which can only be something as interesting as you magnanimous self and how you would be such a good ruler and how if you’re not interested in ruling move onto books because when all else fails: BOOKS.
