An Experts Guide to Top Tier Procrastination

The opinions expressed in this article are the writer’s own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus.

As a person who continuously leaves all of my assignments until the last possible minute and has been known to submit essays at 11:59pm on the due date, I know a thing or two about procrastination. Here is a list of some of the dumb things I did instead of writing my last set of assignments. I did indeed submit them in the end, but not until I had… 

1. Cleaned my flat (many, many times). 

2.Got drunk and went to a karaoke bar??? 

3.Watched a LOT of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  

4.Looked at walls. 

5.Planned my friends Halloween party for someone else. 

6.Read books for fun and not the ones I should’ve read for my actual course. 

7.Made my Christmas list.  


9. Annoyed my boyfriend on purpose. 

10. Called my mum to tell her about every book I’ve read this entire year.  

If you have any big assignments coming up, you too could be a top tier procrastinator like me if you use any of the ideas in this list. Disclaimer: this will lead to intense academic stress and at least 24 hours of self-hatred.
