PROCRAST

(N.) 'pro-krast  Procrasts are the comparatively easy, self-indulgent and unnecessary activities you occupy yourself with while putting off more important tasks. Usage: All of Diwan’s college applications were due January 15th, but he had not even begun to work on them. Instead, as the deadline neared, he distracted himself with countless procrasts—working out, Facebooking, and cleaning his room, though his parents hadn’t even asked him to.
