How do you procrastinate?

Final exams and project deadlines are closing in around me... so what do I do? I avoid doing anything school-related as long as I possibly can! I've drawn more and baked more recently now that the deadlines are coming up, I've recently rejoined dA, I spend more time on Tumblr, and this morning, I spent a decent bit of time using bobby pins to shape my horrible bedhead into a fauxhawk before finally thinking, "Okay, I need to get stuff done."

So, what do you all do when you're avoiding more important work?

When I was still in high school I used to slack off from my homework by either playing video games or going on the computer and I ended up doing homework the last minute

Wikipedia or Youtube freefall.

In case you haven't heard of it, it's where you start with the intention of looking at only one search term or video, and somehow follow an endless stream of links to new areas. This made college so very difficult xD

The artist-confessions thing is disgusting. A lot of it is just bashing other artists :no:

Yes, a lot of it it's just bashing, it still entertainments me for a couple of minutes, though I don't visit that often because I'm usually busy with dA, but I read the comments on the posts there, etc. most of the time at least the commenters don't agree with the OP bashing. :shrug:
I don't take that blog too seriously otherwise I would be traumatized. :B

Facebook. Constantly.

Youtube. Constantly.

Refresh the today page on deviantart constantly. Try to decide if I actually have any decent input. (Usually it's a no.)

Occasionally venture into the forum itself to quickly scurry back out, and then back in.

"The Lake of the 40 Towers" is a story about human twin brother and sister Dhonia and Brunar Darick given a chance to be safe, during war time, at Diferion, the actual Lake of the 40 Towers, amongst the kin that resides there, the irthala. However they realize that not everyone is all right with their stay there and thus they chose to prove themselves worthy, stepping on their summoner's (the one that called for them) word and leaving to search for a rumoured Chant that can turn the tides of war in the peoples' of Nadadurin favour.

That is kind of the only way I can summarize the story, but the plot revolves around a lot of other characters and their development, due to which the current page count is 240 A4 pages and I'm not even at the half-mark.

It's sorta annoying... I am not betting anyone would read a book that has from starters 600 pages, leastwise I wouldn't.

Something like that, but harder and it's for the PC.

Yep. That's one of my classmates, actually, but it's still applicable to other students at this age. My procrastinating is far less interesting though.

DeviantArt, Facebook, putz around on the internet, spider solitaire, doodle on scraps of paper, work on backstories for some of my D&D characters, draw something in my sketchbook, read a book, search for new desktop wallpapers, clean my room, go poke my significant other, organize my desk, stare off into space... I've gotten way too good at finding fluffy things to do to avoid the stuff I really should be doing. >.<

Yeah, pretty much. Sometimes I wish I weren't so easily amused (I can entertain myself for hours with nothing but the thoughts bouncing around in my skull), because then maybe I could focus a little better on my homework and stuff.

:stare: Yeah, I don't like being stressed out either, but I can't seem to stop procrastinating; then I end up just living on stress for a few days/hours. Actually happened to me just this past week when I had a 6 page paper due (started the day before) and a Chemistry Final the next day. ^U^ Three days of horrible, horrible stress.

Wow. Well, that's not as bad as when a friend of mine had a 10-page paper due ten hours after he started. He's in a different country 14 hours ahead of where I am; at 9 AM here (11pm there), I was helping him download sources, and I was keeping him awake until he finished writing at five in the morning.
