Procrastinate Away

1. StumbleUpon

Well, the name is pretty self-explanatory here. You log onto the site, check off things that interest you in life and then stumble from one post to another as you explore the internet and make lists of pages that you would like to revisit some time later.

Stumble away people!

2. Mental Floss

Want to floss your brains and spend a little less time looking at random Beyonce memes?

Well, this is kind of that place?!

A mixture of everything that is unnecessary and not so unnecessary and quizzes and information that range from the absurd to really interesting can be found on this website.

Give it a try; there is nothing to lose except time.

3. Flavorwire

A lot of reviewing of pop culture, movies and books goes on here. Sometimes you feel at home, sometimes a little upset with the writers who are way too smart for their own good (and they seem to be trying really hard to make you feel stupid by dropping names of all the movies and television shows you have never heard of but should have) and sometimes it's just the best way to procrastinate.

Nonetheless, if you are more of a reader, there's plenty to go through here

4. Grouchy Rabbit

This website could be described as the perfect guide to life with the best tips for a successful one listed down in a super intelligent manner. It is simple, funny and thought provoking.

Smile a little, think a little and keep revisiting for more if you don't give a f*$k about…stuff.

5. Deviant Art

Art? Check.

Amazing art? Check.

Super amazing art? Check.

Time to spend? Check.

Don't even think about this one, just get in and enjoy.

6. TED

Would you like to hear someone smart talk about something relevant for a change?

TED is a platform where minds from various fields of life come together to give brief insights into the many possibilities of the future and how we can be a part of it. The talks range from how we can all live up to our potentials to how best cow dung can be utilised.

They really do have ideas worth spreading.

7. Pinterest

Would it be wrong to say this is at once the best and worst image sharing website out there?

You can go through other people's boards, make your own and pin down images that you like. While the site provides a wide range of beautiful shots, it also induces a sense of sadness in you – just because you know you are never going to get your cake to bake like it was shown.

8. My Life In 20 Years

This website can be accessed through your Facebook and be used to outline your future. The website collects data from your past posts and pictures and presents a summarised version of what you have been doing for the past 20 years…in the future…but they have already passed…so now it's your present.

9. Black Negative

This one is a hard one to describe.

There are plenty of things to explore here and you will probably feel lost on your first visit.

But this is a good kind of lost, the kind that makes you feel like you have stumbled into uncharted territory, a magical land of the unknown; not like the ending of the other LOST.

Need a little inspiration to complete that project of yours? Or start it maybe?

ISSUU is home to numerous magazines and portfolios that can be viewed and even downloaded for reference. The work put up here is not only great, but might actually make you feel like you should start working now.

11. Brain Pickings

This one is for the smart and intelligent procrastinator, or at least for the ones who wish to be one.

There is a lot to read here ranging from what to do to remain happy to how long well known writers of the past and present liked to sleep. There is the important stuff, the interesting ones and the ones that make you feel like you could be the next big writer.

Rating: 4.75/5



12. Sweet Station

Everything from art to architecture can be found on the pages of Sweet Station. There are numerous artists, architects and other talented individuals featured on the site along with their work that are sure to make you feel incompetent.

Oh well, who cares if I'm not that talented? That painting is ridiculously beautiful and that is all that matters.

13. The Oat Meal

This is comic haven. Nothing more, nothing less.

14. BuzzFeed

Obviously, this is the Daddy of all procrastination websites. If you are unable to find something here to keep yourself busy, you are probably not normal.
