16 Ways To Avoid Actually Working In The Library
You tell yourself you can’t work at home, so you load up your things, and go off to the library. Once you’re there, there’s more roadblocks, like coffee, to distract you.
1. Caffeine Break
Sit down, organize your books, setup your laptop. Open up your laptop and realize you can’t actually start until you have coffee. Close laptop and pick everything back up.
2. Your Seat is Taken
That’s what you get for leaving for that coffee. Now spend the next 15 minutes looking for a good enough seat to get the mojo going.
3. Check Your Email
There’s all those emails you haven’t responded to yet, that you must suddenly respond to …
4. Call Back Your Parents
You told your mom you would call her back last week, and you just need to catch up on that right in this moment.
5. Bathroom Break
You haven’t actually started yet, but you don’t want to get started and then have to stop again.
6. Catch Up With Acquaintances
You are about to get serious, but then you run into that classmate from that class you took together one time, and this exact moment happens to be the best time to catch up.
7. Scan The News Headlines
All of a sudden you have taken a huge interest in what’s going on outside the college bubble.
8. Find The Right Music To Study With
You must find the right jams to get you going. Whoops, there goes 2 hours.
9. OMG This Assignment is Due in 4 Hours
Time. What is that, again?
10. Your Classmates Join You To Study in Solidarity
Their presence only serves to distract you even more …
11. Feed Yourself
It’s 3 A.M. and you haven’t eaten in 8 hours. The words on the screen are starting to resemble rain, as you scroll up and down the page that you have no strength to read.
12. Pump Yourself Up With a Dance Break
You look at that monitor and want to cry, but instead you get up and start dancing.
13. Do More “Research”
Get lost in the World Wide Web. Lose another 2 hours.
14. Send Out an S.O.S.
It’s 5 A.M and all of your friends are asleep.
