Procrastination: No. 1

I think the title of this post has already made it abundantly clear what the content is likely to be about. But, I will say that what I'm doing right now - as I type this out - is surprisingly productive. The thing about attempting to work through huge steaming mounds of coursework is: it sounds like too much effort, it looks like too much effort, and it is too much effort. So by breaking up my working schedule into minuscule chunks of time, I can in fact work for much longer... Or at least appear to be working for much longer... which really is  waste of time. A productive waste of time perhaps? No. Definitely not. Well anyway, the main reason this post exist is because I'm trying to blog more regularly... An I'm procrastinating... And using far too many ellipses...

Anyway, what's been happening?

Well, I've been doing history coursework about Yasser Arafat's impact on the Arab-Israeli Conflict, which is interesting, but nevertheless effort. Basically Arafat was an Arab Nationalist responsible for leading the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) against Israel's ever expanding empire (which is largely so because of the US). On the one hand he wanted peace... But at the same time, he wanted a revolution against Israel... You can probably see why there might be some conflict because of this.

On another note, I'm currently involved in a Strokes cover band entitled The Blokes, we've recording a version of Is This It. This Is It.

Right, time to procrastinate from blog writing by doing some work...
