How to Procrastinate

Aloha humans. Today, I will tell you how to procrastinate. Have I done this before? okay, just checked and I have not.

  1. If something is due in two weeks, say, for example, a potato gun (i dunno just work with me), plan it and buy the stuff right away, then wait until halfway to the due date to build it.
  2. Homework frustrating you? Take a five minute break for a snack and/or quick internet break. Make sure to set a timer.
  3. Putting something off out of necessity? Maybe don’t have the necessary materials? Organize and draw up plans so that you can be ready when you are able to actually start.
  4. DO NOT put things off until the night before. Try to have a two day before due limit on procrastination.
  5. If you’re assignment is a paper, do the pre-writing right away, then wait until the halfway point to write the final copy and edit.
  6. Do NOT forget assignments. If you are afraid you will, do them right away.
  7. Do NOT wait until right before the due time to finish a homework assignment. The stress will destroy you.
  8. Try to limit mid-homework breaks to a maximum of one hour.
  9. Do the hardest assignment first, take a five-to-ten minute break, do the next hardest assignment, and repeat until all homework is finished.
  10. Don’t procrastinate on major test grades.

The end. I guess some of that wasn’t really saying how to procrastinate, so much as saying when not to, but it’s still important to keep that in mind.

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Anime Recommendation… Again

Aloha humans. Yes, I’m aware I just did an anime recommendation, but I just finished a really good one and I think you humans should check it out, if you can.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Yeah, I’m aware a lot of you probably know all about this one, but for those of you who haven’t the characters are:

  • The titular Haruhi Suzumiya, the crazy girl who founded the SOS Brigade and has [CLASSIFIED INFORMATION] Leader
  • Kyon, the straight man. So straight. Also, completely normal. Lancer
  • Mikuru Asahina, the cute girl who Haruhi may or may not mentally torture. A [CLASSIFIED INFORMATION] The Heart
  • Yuki Nagato, the only member of the literary club, has a robotic personality, A [CLASSIFIED INFORMATION] The Smart Guy
  • Itsuki Koizumi, this guy almost never stops smiling and has little to no sense of personal space. A [CLASSIFIED INFORMATION] The only category left is Big Guy and I guess he fits that alright

So, what is this anime about?

  • The SOS Brigade and all the weird shenanigans the members get up to
  • Kyon really needs to pick a girlfriend already
  • [CLASSIFIED INFORMATION]
  • lots of spoilers, you get the idea
  • Haruhi Suzumiya, her issues, and her attempts to make the most of her life/meet aliens, time travelers, and/or espers
    • Also her blackmail victims, the computer club, show up on occasion which is fun
  • Murder (that one time)
  • Eight episodes that are almost exactly the same but that you can’t skip a single one without missing an important plot-point

Anyhoo, I’ve said about all I can say without spoiling the show, so you’re jusst gonna have to watch it yourself. Warning, everyone talks just a bit too quickly and there are rarely pauses between sentences (this warning does not apply to Nagato). Enjoy!

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Halloween is coming!!!

Aloha humans! I made be too old for trick-or-treating, but Blue isn’t. I go with him every year and will continue to until he decides he doesn’t want to anymore.

So, the important question: What’s my costume?

Surprising absolutely no one who has even glanced my blog, I’m gonna be Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb.

I’m wearing a sports bra to reduce the boob, a long-sleeved teal shirt, matching teal jeans, a cut up orange baseball cap (bill), a tail made of two bead tie necklaces tied together with butcher twine, orange flip-flops, and my Papaw’s old fedora. It’s not perfect and I may go without the bill, depending on how I feel the day of, but it came out pretty good.  I may switch out the flip-flops for duck feet slippers. I’ll lay out my costume for a photo when I have all the pieces in one place.

Until next time, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Anime Recommendation

Aloha humans! I love cartoons, especially 90s cartoons. DuckTales, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Animaniacs are absolute gems. but my favourite was Powerpuff Girls. I frickin love that show!

So, imagine my surprise when I discovered an anime based on it. I was so ready to hate it.

But I couldn’t.

It’s a good show. Great action, nice concept, hilarious, and all round just a fun watch. It’s weird, but it’s supposed to be. If you haven’t seen it, go check it out.

Highlights:

  • Chemical Z, the chemical named after the cake that fell into it.
  • Bubbles the fashion detective
  • Buttercup hates skirts
  • Let Blossom eat 2k**
  • Ken the cinnamon roll science child
  • Ms. Bellum is blonde???
  • Mojo Jojo’s tragic, orange-related backstory
  • Sedusa and the Quest to Push the Censors
  • Professor Utonium’s pink pajamas
  • Poochy the shout dog
  • Him
  • The Amoeba Boys (but Violet’s more of a lady)
  • Fuzzy Lumpkins’ handprint
  • The Rowdyruff Boys’ tragic pit hair-related backstory
  • and the many sentient inanimate objects

Go watch it, I promise it’s worth your time.

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

So Frickin Tired

Aloha humans. I’m so tired. I spent the day outside, in the (relative) heat, helping people lug heavy equipment from place to place. I’m gonna have some frickin muscles soon, I swear. Anyway, sorry that the posts today are kinda boring. Unfortunately, when I get sleepy, my brain doesn’t work as well, so I had no idea what to post. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.

Until then, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!
