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 …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
