the top 10 things that stand between me and finishing an assignment:

Because I am the queen of procrastination, here are 10 sure-fire ways to burn some time while you should be doing homework:

1. blog 
(duh! what do you think I'm doing right now? 
I'll give you a hint:  it starts with "p" and ends with "rocrastinating")
2.  check out new pins on pinterest
3.  facebook, of course!
4.  read (and update) your twitter

{and now that all of your social networking bases are covered}

5.  bake and craft
6.  work out or go running
7.  go out for ice cream or coffee with a friend (or dinner with your dad, as I discovered tonight)
8.  edit that photoshoot that's been sitting in your "needs processing" folder
9.  watch a movie (preferably as you tell yourself it'll just be "background noise")
10.  do your laundry/dishes
(this is really out of desperation.  You can try to justify this one as "I really need a clean and organized house/apartment in order to fully focus on my homework", but we all know you're choosing the lesser of two evils here.)

and then there's this:

And just one last thing.  I'm currently sitting at the kitchen table surrounded by my laptop, folders, books, my open planner, and a mug of tea and my dad proceeds to initiate the following conversation:
Dad:  Wanna go to Target?
Me:  Oh gosh, you have no idea how much I'd like to say yes, but I've got 4 lesson plans, a paper, discussion board posts...
Dad:  Meh, what's at Target anyway?
Me:  Oooo...lots of things!
Dad:  You'd just want to look at clothing and shoes.
{20 min later...after I finished this post}
Dad:  Target closes in an hour and a half!  We could go walk the aisles!
Me:  Actually, they close in a half hour; they close at 9 on weekdays.
Dad:  We could go to Giant and walk the aisles instead!
