There’s this funny thing that’s been happening over the last few weeks. Every Thursday night as I’m sitting in front of my computer, I start to feel really accomplished when I complete all of my internet chores. And my chore list keeps getting longer.
So far, here’s my list of daily internet chores:
- Bing searches on laptop and phone.
- Inbox Dollars paid e-mails, searches, videos, and TV earnings.
- Send Earnings paid e-mails, searches, and videos.
- Swagbucks offers and nCrave videos totaling the daily goal (usually around 110).
- Crowdtap polls, text response, media share, and photo response.
That’s my way of earning a couple extra dollars a day.
The list doesn’t include checking e-mail, Twitter, or refreshing my Facebook page twenty times a day. I don’t get paid for that level of procrastination.
Speaking of procrastination…
After getting everything done on Thursday night, I think to myself: Kristina, wouldn’t it be great if I got a head start on the blog? That way, it will be done and ready to post Friday afternoon. It’s at that moment that I find something, anything else to do. I always think that on Friday I’ll have some great idea for a blog topic.
I lost my train of thought just thinking of a punch-line to that.
I think that it would be appropriate then to make this weeks list about the different squirrels I get distracted by.
Five Things That Help Me Procrastinate
1. Earning Amazon.com Gift Cards Online
In the list above I state all the different ways I earn a little bit of extra cash. Sometimes when I want to delay a project for a few minutes, I try a couple of survey’s or look for a profitable offer I haven’t done yet.
2. Looking for a Snack
Ah, junk food. The pull of salty snacks is irresistible. Just before sitting down to blog today, I made myself scrambled eggs. Now I want something sweet, like brownies or cake. Or a dark, dark glass of chocolate milk.
3. TV Re-Runs
I may claim that I’m reviewing a show so that I’m ready for the next season, but that’s partially a cover up. I enjoy watching EVERY episode of EVERY season before the new one airs. When I’m done with that, I binge on off-air shows like Friends, Fraiser, Home Improvement, Alias, and others. You do not want to get me started on Star Wars Rebels, I’m so psyched for this season and what it could mean for Star Wars movies on down the line! Did I seriously just see a spoiler about Asaj Ventress? Is she back? Wait, don’t tell me!
4. Creating Something Else
Get this, I found out that if you mix together lemongrass and neroli essential oils, it smells like fruit loops! Oh, yeah! I also love to make lists, I already have Sunday’s grocery list done thanks to the weekly ad preview. I can’t wait, honeycrisp apples are on sale!
5. F5 or Browsing the Internet
That, right there, is a FINE looking Pembroke Welsh Corgi. His name is Chauncey and he is my lovable furball. His kind make for adorable corgi butt pictures and gifs. Do yourself a favor and search YouTube for “corgi bubble butt.” You’re welcome.
I can’t help it that my pets are so gosh darn photogenic. Now, take a look at these beautiful eyes:
Can you see how easily I can can distracted?
