Become a Procrastination Pro | CityBlock

Studying can be hard. In fact, unless you’re some sort of super student created by professors to show up everyone else, you’re probably no stranger to procrastination. Seeing as we’re particularly helpful, here at CityBlock, we thought we would help you to step up your procrastination game – it’s a serious business, don’t you know?

Tidy Your Room

What better time than when you have a 5,000-word assignment due the next day to organise your DVD’s alphabetically?

Find Out Which Hogwarts House You Belong to

These things are important, and now is the perfect time to find out whether you’re a Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. Oh, and while you’re at it, you might as well find out what your wand is made of and the form of your Patronus. How can you bear not knowing?!

Visit Pottermore for hours of endless Potter-based procrastination.

Make Your Future Album Cover

Who hasn’t dreamed of being a rock and roll star? Make your album with these simple steps:

  1. Go to Wikipedia and click ‘random’. The first article that pops up is your band’s name.
  2. Now, visit Quotations Page and click on ‘random quotations’. Scroll to the bottom of the page and take the last four or five words of the last quote – this is the name of your album.
  3. Go to Flickr or image sharing site and click ‘explore’. The third picture is the cover of your album.
  4. Put it all together and you have a masterpiece…

Here’s ours:
