Procrastination Destination du Jour: Coffitivity and Other Coffee-Related Things

Is it weird that I’ve bookmarked so many coffee-related websites despite the fact that I don’t drink coffee?

It’s that time of year, folks: The writers of Wesleying are bringing you our biannual Procrastination Destination feature, where we post a frenzy of addictive, pointless, and/or awesome links to help you get your procrastination on every day for all of finals (today + reading period + actual finals week). Have a link you think would be rad for Procrastination Destination? Email us at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org.

First link in our PD lineup: Coffitivity.

Did you know that the “ambient noise of a coffee shop” can boost your creativity and productivity? Neither did I, but apparently Coffitivity knows more than us. I stumbled upon Coffitivity over a year ago and immediately spent 30 minutes playing with the coffee shop settings trying to find the right “category” of sounds. Was it Lunchtime Lounge (described as “bustling chatter of the lunchtime rush”), University Undertones (“The scholarly sounds of a campus cafe”), or something more meta, like Morning Murmur (“A gentle hum gets the day started”)?

Whatever you choose, I can promise this: You too will spend a large chunk of time trying to find the perfect setting and volume. For an app that claims to make you more productive, it might take you a little while to get to that point.

Other Coffee-ish Things

Coffee Tycoon

Holy shit, there’s a computer game where you attempt to become a coffee tycoon. I totally cannot wait to be walking around Olin seeing people trying to make their virtual baristas stop scratching their ironic goatees and start making coffee. Seriously though, this is one of those games that has some complicated algorithm that makes it near impossible to win. But try you will.

Sprudge

Again, I hate coffee, but I love coffee websites, especially “premiere coffee insider” sites. Of those, Sprudge is ace stuff. Some coffee-themed articles to get you on your way to procrastination:

Dear Coffee, I Love You

Not only is this blog awesome, but right now it features a very procrastination-inducing, coffee-filled holiday gift guide.

And there you have it! Tune in tomorrow for more Procrastination Destination on Wesleying.
