Texts From Last Night

When you are sitting in a boring lecture and you need something to do to make those minutes tick by just a little bit quicker I highly suggest reading Texts From Last Night. If you have friends as ridiculous as I do you will read things that apply to your life and it is hilarious because all these posts are submitted by other people clearly similar to you. It is easy to read pages and pages and page. Before each post there is the area code of the city the post is submitted from and you can easily check out what ridiculous shenanigans others from your city are up to!

VOTING!!

There is no better way to procrastinate and waste time than informing yourself in the issues that face us today. It can be overwhelming though, it can be extremely overwhelming to try and know every parties stance on every single issue. I know that is how I feel, but I tend to have a “top 3” and focus on those 3 across all parties. An amazing and informative tool is CBC’s Vote Compass. The short 10 minute quiz asks you a variety of questions asking you your opinion on the major topics facing Canadian’s today. 

So if you are still unsure of who you are going to vote for at the polls tomorrow I highly recommend you try this site to help you figure it out!

Studying For Exams The Right Way

I was reading my school paper the other day and I came across this super appropriate article aptly titled “The best ways to PROCRASTINATE during final exams”, and now for your reading pleasure here is that list:

  • Make extremely complicated and fancy meals because I mean, you can’t not eat
  • Visit Narnia
  • Find religion and lose it while listening to R.E.M.
  • Read every article in The Peak
  • Constantly double-check that you still have 10 fingers
  • Take up whittling 
  • Just sleep now and then you can get up extra early to finish studying
  • Catch ‘em all
  • Marathon viewing of every single Ernest Goes To… movie
  • Step one: caffeinated. Step two: play “Eye of the Tiger” until sufficiently pumped. Step three: repeat steps one and tow as needed. Step four: it is now 2:00 am.
  • Create a flowchart detailing the narrative progression of LOST
  • Write list of ways to procrastinate

StumbleUpon

This website is seriously the greatest thing ever invented for procrastinators. Whether you are a minimalist procrastinator or a hardcore one… this website will not become your best friend. I have to limit myself from exploring all the things this website has to offer because I know I will be sucked in for hours. When you sign up for StumbleUpon you are asked to highlight what you interests are and you can list as many as you want to. There are hundreds of different topics ranging from commerce, home/living, and sports. Once you have selected your interests you can start “Stumbling Your Interests”. 

While you are stumbling you will come across news articles, blogs, videos, photographs, interactive websites… honestly just about anything. You can like or dislike particular pages you come across. Also, you are able to find other users, who might have similar interests as you, and follow them and see what they have liked etc. 

I suggest not exploring this site to its full potential until all of your term papers and final exams are over.

IMDB

I am a huge trivia buff. I love knowing little random facts about almost anything. One of my many quirks includes after watching a movie I have to go and read about it on Wikipedia and IMDB. On IMDB there are two sections titled “Trivia” and “Goofs”. In trivia you can find out odd little tidbits that may have happened during production or weird relationships between someone associated with the movie and the content… or really anything at all. Goofs has things like continuity errors and those little things that editing couldn’t quite smooth over. 

For example last night I watched (500) days of Summer for the first time and after readying about it on IMDB this morning I learnt that in the first draft of the screenplay, the film was set in San Francisco not New Hampshire, or that during the flasback to Summer’s job selling ice cream, Tom can be seen waiting in line. I don’t know why but I just enjoy the movie even more after reading these facts. My apologies for sounding super lame but I love knowledge.
