How To Procrastinate On Homework

By Abigail Vinas on October 15, 2013

It’s a Wednesday. You come home from your last class of the day and toss your backpack to the floor. You head straight to the kitchen. You find the closest box of sugary, fatty junk food and scarf it down while you relax by watching television. A couple of hours pass by and the sun starts to set. I should probably start my homework now, you think to yourself. But then you decide to take the road most traveled and think, Or not. 

Procrastinate on homework? You’re not the only one, that’s for sure. Why do homework when you can do the following instead? They’re much more fun.

  • Take a nap. You’ve earned one for going to all your classes today. You were early to all of them, too? Reward yourself with a 45-minute snooze. If you’re like me, you have 8AMs everyday and decide to take a two-hour nap every afternoon.
  • Go on Facebook. You must check for new notifications, photo comments, friend requests, messages, tagged photos, and even pokes. Always click ‘poke back.’ You can’t let that person win the poke war. How many likes have you gotten on your profile picture that you changed yesterday? Has your crush liked it yet? Okay, check again in another hour.
  • Watch television. Titanic is playing on FX? Now you have to watch and finish the whole movie. That’ll kill another three hours or so, plus commercials. Perfect.
  • Open up the Vine app on your smartphone. Laugh hysterically at 7-second videos and watch them over and over until your stomach hurts. I suggest watching Vines from a hilarious, young man named Jerome Jarre. Be prepared to burst out in laughter repeatedly.
  • Catch up on your favorite tv shows on Netflix or Hulu. Beware, watching just one episode is like eating just one potato chip — impossible.
  • Scroll through your newsfeed on Instagram. Encounter 10+ posts of food and a couple of selfies. To like or not to like?
  • Go to a friend’s house and do all of the above all over again. Twice.

This, my friends, is how to procrastinate on homework — as if you all didn’t already know how. (But really though, you might want to get started on that essay.)
