When teachers allow computers in the classroom I have to wonder: what do they think we’re doing behind these screens? Taking notes? Absolutely not. It’s more likely you will find me Facebooking or taking part in another form of procrastination that will lead to my ultimate academic demise.
But at least I’ll go down laughing.
I’ve spent many an hour wasting time on the interwebs and let me tell you, there is a lot out there that can come between you and your GPA. Need to entertain yourself during a 3-hour lecture? Here are a few of my favorite procrastination sites.
Failblog: Other peoples’ failures are our greatest delights. Indulge your inner bitch by laughing at the blunders of others and feel better about yourself for a minute or two. Before Karma strikes you down dead.
People of Walmart: People-watching at your local Wal-mart can go one of two ways. You will either fight the urge to laugh out loud or fight the urge to gouge your eyeballs out. Both of which will require you to actually enter a Wal-mart. Why not enjoy the interesting patronage from the comfort (and safety) of your desk?
Look at this F***ing Hipster: I love myself a good hipster. And where else can you find pictures of men in ironic t-shirts and jeans that are just a little bit TOO skinny?
I Bang the Worst Dudes (Sorry, Mom): It’s everything you’ve always wanted to tell your mom and more, if only she wouldn’t judge you and write you out of the will. But beware, these people’s tales of sexual trial and error may cause extreme second-hand embarrassment.
Tweeting too Hard: Self-indulgence at its best. These tweets are the best of the worst. And by worst I mean I’m pissed I didn’t think of them myself.
My Parents Joined Facebook: The day I receive a friend request from my mom of Facebook is the day my dignity goes to die. From the funny to the awkward to the down-right wrong, this website has a plethora of parents on Facebook, humiliating their children one wall post at a time.
PostSecret: It’s Message in a Bottle, version 2.0. People submit postcards with their secrets to this website anonymously.
My Life is Average: It’s FMyLife, but way more average. And hilarious. Example: Today, I realized I have to go over the river and through the woods to get to my grandmothers house. MLIA.
DListed: For those who don’t buy into Perez Hilton’s fame. DListed is a great source for celebrity gossip and crude humor. I can guarantee you’ll chuckle. Check it out
Seriously, bookmark this shiz. You’ll thank me later.
