Deep Dark Corners of The Internet
pro·cras′ti·na′tion; Noun: The natural enemy of the university student
Every year around SWOTVAC a great battle begins, with students trying to buckle down and prepare for exams. However there is one ugly undefeatable beast that stands in their way: procrastination.
People are constantly looking for ways to defeat the beast. But unfortunately it has one incredibly powerful weapon: the internet – a black hole of bits and pieces from around the world where any regular Joe can have their say.
Once you’ve started procrastinating online it’s hard to stop. Where do you go next once you exhausted the regular tabs of Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin and even Reddit? I’ll show you the deep dark places on the internet where hours of your day can disappear.
If you just want to sit back and relax while you procrastinate than these are the websites for you.
Before you get started, you need to know if you’re ready for the internet. Take the internet citizenship test, a quiz that tests how much you remember about the early years of the internet.
If quizzes are your thing then try out the impossible quiz, a game that uses all the tricks in the book to make it impossible for you to answer correctly.
If you want to explore your creative side you can go to Build With Chrome, a site that lets you go back to your childhood and build whatever you can imagine with Lego!
If all you want is to go back to when times were easier you can visit The Nostalgia Machine, which will give you a music video selection of top hits from a year of your choice.
You can see what your money can buy you… if you had any, at This is Why I’m Broke, a site that brings together a collection of spectacular items and tells you where you can buy them.
But if you’re still worried about your studies, then visit Estipaper. We all need to know how much time it takes to write that paper. This is a handy site that allows you to put in a paper length and its due date. The site will then give you an estimate of how much time it will take for you to finish, taking into account average typing speed, coffee breaks and even time wasted on Facebook.
Who knows, maybe you’ll end up having enough time to binge watch an entire TV series. You can find out on Binge Clock.
When all you need is that pick me up head to Am I Awesome which always truthfully answers the question: am I awesome?
Finally, once you’ve procrastinated your way to the ends of the internet maybe you should send your future self an email to remind you how much you need to study. And you can! Visit Future Me which allows you to send an email and set any delivery time… like next SWOTVAC. Good luck next time!
