    It's not crazy. It's procrastination.

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share with us some of the weird/crazy/awesome things they've done during finals week, in place of studying. Here are some of the best responses.

    I lint-rolled the carpet of my entire first floor.
    I decided to browse my roommates' nursing book (Im not a nurse...LOL) and classify my poops based on the types in the book. I almost took pictures and compared them to the ones in the book. Anyway, its called the Bristol Stool Scale. It is a new hobby of mine. I even ask my close friends and boyfriend to let me in on their poop escapades so I can classify their poops. My last one was a type-4: 'smooth like a sausage.'
    Last year, I became an ordained minister as a form of procrastination.

    At 3 a.m., I first ate an entire bag of Doritos Cool Ranch, then proceeded to print out over 200 pictures of Doritos chips from online. After cutting them all out individually, I put them into the bag and taped it shut, and put the bag back in the cupboard. I'm still not sure what my intentions were.
    Memorized the fast part of the lyrics to 'One Week' by Barenaked Ladies.
    I sewed a full elf costume (ears, dress, hat, jingle bell shoes, and all) and was in a Christmas parade.

    I tagged all my pictures on Facebook as Lil Wayne...
    Learned sign language.
    I started watching Game of Thrones a week ago...and now I'm waiting for Season 5.
    I arm-knitted 37 infinity scarves. I am not kidding.
    We made up a drinking game revolving around bad reruns of Hogan Knows Best.
    I've binge-watched a Korean drama, The One From the Stars. I'm not Korean; I don't speak the language whatsoever — yet I can tell you everything and anything about Do Min Joon and Cheon Song Yi's love life.
    I went to PetSmart for a 'break' and came home with two hamsters. They ended up living for two years.
    I learned Celtic one year.
    Randomly decided I wanted to learn how to pick locks, spent two hours trying to learn with bobby pins, couldn't do it so drove to four different stores looking for a pick set, spent three hours picking every lock in my house, and yup, I was right: It's super cool!

    I became fascinated with dreadlocks and now know how to make dreadlocks and care for them even though I would never actually wear dreadlocks.
    Last year I learned the Russian alphabet, but not Russian... So Да свидания, GPA!
    I watched tutorials and practiced how to do the moonwalk, and spent several hours perfecting it. Then I learned the (whole) 'Thriller' choreography.
