A Gif-Based Story of Avoiding Responsibility

I could do my work. Or I could find a bunch of gifs that show you how I’m not doing my work.

The semester is almost over, and you know what that means: avoiding my projects! And how does one do that exactly?

Cleaning is my absolute favorite procrastination technique. I love it because I feel like I’m doing something, but I’m not doing anything that needs to be done. I feel like my apartment gets extra clean around finals. Like, my baseboards have been dusted twice since I started writing my final papers. I’m considering pulling out the stove and vacuuming behind it.

It’s funny you say that…I worked this morning and didn’t sleep much last night and I’m so tired my brain feels like a fuzz ball, even though I all ready took a nap this afternoon. I’m also ridiculously hungry. I have one final left, it’s a 1-2 page paper (single spaced though? who does that?). If I had more energy I’d clean or have a dance party. I’m torn between making motions towards planning my paper or sitting on the couch in a daze watching more Bob’s Burgers. Final is due Friday. I’ve got time.
