One month from today, the hallowed halls of Exeter will welcome the freshest of fresh to the debauched halls of Streatham Campus. If, like us, you have finally tired of bitching about Lana Del ray for H&M, these finally 31 days may seem to drawl by slower than Boris Jonson’s chatup lines at Fabric. So here are a few tried and tested methods of online procrastination fit for the desk slave and the bed-ridden.
GIRL EATS FOOD
Videos of some girl from Barnet taking Heston for a ride. Perfect for when hangry but unsure what to create while you still have v.i.p access to the bottomless fridge in your family kitchen, because before long you will be justifying to yourself that pasta and pesto contains your five-a-day.

But it could also be filled with shrunk in the wash versions of glossy products thanks to whatsinmyhandbag.com. Ok, so you do spend about fifteen minutes filling in your details, dying wish etc, but a few weeks later a YSL mascara rocks up on your doorstep or a fragrance or whatever they want to throw at you next. You can read New yorkers drooling about Elizabeth Arden for hours or you can just use and abuse the freebies. The site is just generally really great for an product hoarders out there and seriously, who does not like getting post?
WATCH THE THRONE
I know this is late, but while you have countless horizontal hours to kill, why not get emotionally involved with a beowolf-on-crack fantasy saga. There are dragons, decapitation and nipples everywhere but less in a ‘stepbrothers’ way than a ‘Skyrim gone wild’ kinda way. The best links are on piratenz.eu. You can thank me later.
OR JUST SHAMELESSLY PLUG
If your social life is hitting its Nadir, why not write about it. It worked for Anne. Here are some great examples:
