10 Unique Ways to Procrastinate

I was studying for my exam this weekend and it dawned on me that I am really good at procrastinating. I actually knew way before this that this is one of my skills, but I'm becoming very creative in the ways in which I do it. In case you're not as talented as me, don't worry, I'll show you how I do it.

1. Coming up with random scenarios in my head that will probably never happen but make me smile nonetheless.

2. Realizing that the number 4 is the only one whose word describes how many letters it has.
F-O-U-R.......trippy right?

I bet you're going through the numbers now to check.

Told you.

4. Asking myself random questions like, "If you ever had to change your first name what would you change it to?" I discovered I would call myself 'Fresh' because first of all, how dope does that sound. Also, my name would then be Fresh Prince and how awesome would it be on the first day of classes to hear your professors call you Fresh Prince all day?

5. Lip-syncing to my favorite jams. My current favorite thing to listen to is the Hamilton soundtrack. Learning all of the words is a difficult task but I am determined.

6. Writing a blog post when I in fact should be doing anything else other than writing a blog post.

7. Obviously social media scrolling is a go-to procrastination technique.

8. I love people watching and coming up with fun little backstories for them.

9. A nap is always a good idea.

10. Binge. Netflix, YouTube, Sierra's Sarcastic Spot, Facebook recipe videos, whatever tickles your fancy.

Told you I was a pro. Let me know ways in which you procrastinate. Share this if you agree with anyone of them or if it made you laugh or if you accidentally press share and don't know how to undo it. Time to go get some actual work done!

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

My Dating Profile

I think it's about time I use my blog to find love, don't you think? Last year I wrote about my top tinder tips (I've linked the blog post in case you're just absolutely DYING to go read more about that) and I think another dating app/profile blog post is long overdue. I have had my fair share of editing, critiquing, and looking at dating profiles, and finding out what works and what doesn't, and I figured the best way to tell you is to show you. I'm going to take you on a tour of MY dating profile, well what it would look like if I had one.

Name: Sierra McKinzy Prince (but you can call me Fresh Prince)
