Guilty citizen of the ProcrastiNation right here, everybody.
I’ve got an exam tomorrow, lecture notes and several hundred pages of readings to re-revise, and definitions to repeat over and over to myself until I sound like a broken record.
And yet, at this moment, I am doing none of those things. Instead, I’m sitting here making a list.
As I’ve mentioned before, I do love my lists. I’m already anticipating the end of my last exam this week and daydreaming about all the wonderful glorious things I could do in the time I’m spending buried nose-deep in readings.
So, out of this particular procrastination episode (or ‘study break’ as I like to call them), came a very detailed to-do list about what I plan to do after my last exam is over, which, for your amusement, I’ll be sharing here.

All the international programs through which students can study abroad will be having an informative fair this week at Sid Smith from Tuesday through till Thursday!
As students, I’m sure we’re all too familiar with the dreaded term…’budget’ I’m still acquainting myself with it. A trip to Eaton Centre, as well-intentioned as it may be (“I just need to visit Fido and sort out my phone…
Hey U of T! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed this lovely long weekend- which for me, included some much-needed sleep-ins because my world is about to get a lot busier. My courses are now reaching the…
So it’s been a week since classes started. Seven whole days, phew. Everybody stop and pat yourselves on the back, so far so good! For all the first-years out there, you’re probably still navigating your way around campus and slowly…
So last week, I was helping out with Orientation activities, putting away tables around the lawn behind the UTSU building and (I hate to admit this, but) struggling with one particularly cumbersome table. With gritted teeth, I dragged it up…
