As the question poses: what is your favorite way to put off doing what needs to be done? Me, personally? I stare at Netflix until Pat Buchanan stares back. If your fave is something else, what is it? Let us know below!

I went with listening to music although Netflix was pretty close in the running. I used to watch a lot of TV after school, but now I usually watch Netflix/TV later at night when homework/work is complete so it's not really an issue.

YWS tends to be a good way to procrastinate HW, though. :p

What happened to the @freakforchrist jokes? :'(

(I'm soooo guilty of using YWS to procrastinate, though. Yesterday I wrote an extra Squills article because I decided I'd rather do that than my homework. I was that desperate.)

It's really scary how accurate that staring at the screen sentence is. I just sit there and watch it. Maybe things will magically happen.

Otherwise I sit on Pinterest and scroll through funny pictures. But that's more of a distraction that procrastination.
Dorian, are you the one adding all the spices to our food?
Of course I am.
Because frankly the food here tastes like poorly cooked sawdust. It genuinely tastes how Solas looks.

The number of votes exercise got is ironically funny in its own way.

The screen has eyes.
The screen can see all.
This is not a bad thing.
The screen is the barrier between you and the existential void.
You should consider it a favor that it watches you.

But it is not wrong to watch back...
...just in case.

People actually procrastinate by exercising?
Isn't it the other way round? Are we sure of our options here?

All of the above! lolol.
And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks in tongues and quiet sighs,
And prayers and proclamations

I Pat Buchanan while Netflix stares at exercise. Exercise lacks attentiveness and never stares back. I probably have work to get done.

I am 100 Percent Garbage

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
