Hello fellow procrastinators! While it may be easy as hell to procrastinate, sometimes the regular ol’ routine (switching between snapchat, youtube, and instagram) can get slightly boring, so I’m here to switch things up…we’re adding buzzfeed to the mix. Enjoy my favorite quizzes, lads, as they’re sure to swallow up at least twenty minutes of your time:

 

Procrastination Destination: Get Baked (Goods)

It’s that time of year again! The weather is getting colder, the days are getting (painfully) shorter, and we’re all drowning in finals. That means it’s time for Procrastination Destination!

Procrastination Destination: The Loveland Frog

Today, my friends, I am going to introduce you to my personal favorite cryptid and American legend: The Loveland Frog. The Loveland Frog, aka the Loveland Frogman or the Loveland Lizard, is a four-foot-tall humanoid frog that has been spotted multiple times near Loveland, Ohio. He is said to have leathery skin, webbed hands and feet, and stands on two legs. 

There have been multiple eyewitness accounts of the Loveland Frog throughout the years. Read them under the cut at your own risk.

Procrastination Destination: 99 Problems but a Stitch Ain’t One

Hi friendos. Today, I’m going to talk about knitting. Nobody in my life ever loved me enough to teach me how to knit, so I learned exclusively through videos like this. Now, I’m a straight-up string freak, up to the point where I have a folder of downloaded Ravelry patterns on my computer.

But here’s the secret: It’s easy. Too easy. What you need:

Procrastination Destination: The Paperclip Game

Welcome to the first installment of Procrastination Destination, where Wesleying provides you with #content to get you through finals!

Let me tell you a story. When I was a senior in high school, I was in a really dope AP Physics C class. The teacher was awesome, the students were all friends, and most importantly, we did a whole lot of “not physics.” One day, our teacher got up in front of the class and told us he had a game to show us. This is how The Paperclip Game entered my life.

Procrastination Destination: 10 Fast Fingers

Welcome to the fourth installment of Procrastination Destination, where Wesleying provides you #content to get you through finals!

Hello fellow procrastinators! I, like many (most) of you, have countless essays to write this finals szn. And I’m sure, like many (most) of you, you have an increasingly limited amount of time to complete said essays this finals szn.

However, if any of you find yourself in a place where you feel your typing is not fast enough, that if only you could transport your brilliant thoughts to paper at a more rapid pace you could get the “A” you’ve always wanted in that really hard soc class, I have found an activity for you.

You need look no further than the website 10 Fast Fingers, which will test how many words you can type per minute, or your “RPM”.

Procrastination Destination: COOK YO SELF SOME CUPCAKES :)

Welcome to the third installment of Procrastination Destination, where Wesleying provides you #content to get you through finals!

If you’re the same type of perpetually stressed as I am, then you also decide to bake/make/chef-it-up during finals season to take some productive time off from studying or staring at Netflix, pretending to study. Baking is a ~thing that I do~ while blasting some dramatic music because at least I’m doing something, even if it isn’t homework.

I have a slightly well-known recipe for Mocha Spice cupcakes that I came up with after experimenting in the kitchen a few years back. They’ve made their way to Wesleyan a few times, notably when I baked over three dozen and delivered them to students after spring break. I normally try to bake a batch while I’m home and share the ~goods~ with friends, and it’s quickly become a favorite treat.

The thing is, I don’t *really* have a recipe. I follow this Turkish thing called göz ayar?, which directly translates to eye measurement, which completely makes sense (I hope). Essentially, I know how much to throw into the measuring bowl after making these cupcakes time and time again. The point is, the recipe’s ingredients are always in a dynamic flux depending on what I have laying at home.

The “recipe” I’m going to share is meant to be broken; it’s meant to be experimented with. If you don’t like a particular ingredient, literally just take it out. Wanna add something? Go for it! This recipe is supposed to look like absolute freakin’ chaos…because it is. This is essentially the cupcake in its core, and sometimes I play around with some ~extras~, which I’ll let you know about after getting that not-so-stable cupcake foundation set.
