The 4 Things You’ll Find Yourself Doing When You Should Be Studying



Hey You.

Yes, YOU.

You should be doing something more productive now, like studying, but being the ace procrastionator you are (aren’t we all?), you are scrolling up and down this site. Say bye bye to that conscience and focus on this listicle: because no matter what, there’s ALWAYS something you’d much rather be doing than studying.

Reading Listicles That You Didn’t Even Know You Wanted To
