As the semester gets closer to an end, there is a serious issue we need to address: We are all running out of opportunities to procrastinate our work. Luckily, we at the Clog are here to help. Whether you are considering anything from rearranging your room to taking a nap in order to avoid studying, we have the best procrastination options for you. You’re welcome.


  1. First of all, what are you trying to avoid?
    1. Studying for my midterm tomorrow
    2. Getting ready for class
    3. Writing my essay
    4. I don’t actually have anything to do …
  2. What’s on your mind?
    1. Food, always
    2. My bed
    3. All the stuff I have to do
    4. F.O.M.O.
  3. What’s your midnight snack (a.k.a. drunchie) of choice?
    1. Yogurt Park
    2. Taco Bell
    3. Drunchies are unnecessary calories
    4. All-chocolate everything
  4. How does the iPhone autocorrecting “I” to “A ?” make you feel?
    1. Is that what’s happening?
    2. I don’t know. I don’t really care. …
    4. It’s kind of funny.
  5. How’s your GPA doing?
    1. Dropping out may be in my future.  
    2. I haven’t checked lately because I love myself.
    3. It’s fine. I’m fine. Everything’s fine.
    4. You win some, you lose some.
    1. Go to Yogurt Park. Let’s be real — it’s too late in the semester to salvage your grades anyways. At this point, you might as well enjoy the sinking ship by grabbing a yummy snack for company. Who knows, you may even end up at Taco Bell!
    2. Binge-watch Stranger Things. A happy medium between sleeping and doing something always comes in the form of Netflix. Plus, you’re not caught up yet, and if you don’t watch all the episodes now, someone might blurt out a spoiler in that class you’re about to skip.
    3. Go work out! Sounds like you need to blow off some steam. A quick run or a trip to the gym might do you some good. Too cold out? Maybe just stick to some stretching. Work up all those endorphins so you can sit back down and channel all your rejuvenated mental energy into that paper of yours. You got this!
    4. Go on Instagram. You work hard. Why not take a few well-deserved hours to do absolutely nothing productive with your time? It doesn’t even have to be Instagram — you could choose Twitter, Snapchat or Facebook. The social media world is your oyster!
