It’s your second all-nighter in a row and you’re kicking yourself in the face for putting all your work off this weekend while you blacked out at formal only to wake up in bed next to your little. You’ve lost track of time, every day has the dreaded feel of a Sunday night, and you’ve refreshed your Facebook newsfeed so often that wishing that rando NSO hookup a happy birthday is starting to seem like a good idea.

It’s Sunday afternoon, you’re holed up in VP and what are you doing? Not studying, of course.

Behold, dear readers, UTB’s Ultimate Guide To Procrastination(on-on-on)!:
Remember that thing that saved your summer internship by changing your Facebook newsfeed into an Excel spreadsheet?

Scroll on down for the 10-item list we compiled that’s sure to induce just the right amount of schadenfreude to get you through the day. (Do it. You’re obviously procrastinating anyway; at least be productive about it.)
People Of Van Pelt — And so it begins. It's just getting sunny out and you're starting to get in reading days/ finals mode (ughhh). So why don't you begin procrastinating with Ego's People of Van Pelt special?
