Entertaining Web Ways to be a Slacker
Ew. January. So cold, so gray, so….ugh. You’ve been back in school for a few weeks now and there is no vacation in sight. Just days upon days of reading, writing and cramming. Not the most exciting outlook.You have probably already gotten to the point where you will do anything to avoid heading to the library: your room is spotless, you have emailed every member of your family to update them on your daily life and have changed your Facebook profile pic. Twice.
What else is there to do? How else can you put off studying now that lying out in the sun or taking a long walk are soooo out of the question?
And what about all those hours spent in lecture? How on earth can you pass the time until you’re back on your couch, cozily bundled and watching movies with the roomies?
Being a “real person” (meaning out of college and trying to survive the working world) I have learned a thing or two about passing time. I sit at a desk ten hours a day. Ten hours is a looong time to be looking at Excel spreadsheets and employee files, so I have had many a-opportunity to find some other things to pass the days.
So, being the generous person that I am, I will share with you some top-notch websites to pass time, avoid studying and just make your day.
Hotchickswithdouchebags.com: I just came across this site recently and it truly is one of the best things on the internet right now. The guy who runs the site finds pictures of, well, hot chicks with douchbags and posts them. New pics (and commentary) are being posted daily – along with a large archive – so this will keep you entertained forever.
Gofugyourself.com: Once you read this site you will want the Fug Girls to be your best friends. Instead of ripping apart celebs for speaking in British accents or heading to rehab, these ladies rip them apart for their fashion indiscretions. These girls are seriously funny. I have spent entire days flipping through their archives and it never gets old.
Thesuperficial.com: If you think Perez Hilton is funny it’s because you haven’t experienced true celeb-blogging hilarity. I am not sure who writes this site, but he is a genius. And he doesn’t ruin photos with white squiggly marks. Perez has nothing on this dude.
Addictinggames.com: Remember back in middle school when you had to memorize the U.S. map? Well, this game tests your knowledge. I know putting states on a map seems un-fun, but something about it is totally addicting. I can’t stop!
Craigslist.com: CL isn’t just for people looking for a couch. There are so many freaks on there looking for love, for wild sex and for that special someone that they didn’t have the courage to approach in person. They even have a “Best Of” section that is to die for. Best part: you have hundreds of cities to look through, so the fun never ends.
Got any other time wasters we should all know about?
