Click on the video above to find out some tried-and-true, and some innovative, ways to procrastinate. 

It’s the last day of classes! Cause for celebration? More like cause for procrastination. Exams begin on Tuesday. Master’s and doctoral theses are due Friday. No doubt you’ve got a final paper or take-home exam to fit in somewhere, too.

How to handle the stress? Make sure your Facebook status is up-to-date — even up-to-the minute. See what’s new on Hulu. Update your Netflix queue. And when you run out of ways to put off studying, turn to the experts: your fellow students.

  • Don't miss sleep

    Hey kids. Please, do not stay up all night. During REM sleep your brain performs housekeeping; links in between neurons are strengthened to lead to learning, or are weakened to get rid of non-useful information.

    We need Jesus

    Remember to pray and study the Bible during this time. It’ll make you feel better.

    webcomics and amazon

    Don’t forget webcomics (penny-arcade!!! scarygoround, patches, achewood, and quantz!!!)
    some, like quantz, might even help you study!

    and what about Amazon.com? a truly wonderful haven at finals time! exhaust your credit card, and then take a little nap, because you have worked yourself so hard!

    in conclusion, do not forget about webcomics and amazon!
