Top Ten Things to do During Conference

What to do when the last thing on earth you feel like is conferencing with a teacher
Top+Ten+Things+to+do+During+Conference

We all have homework and plenty of time during the school day to do it. The problem is that it’s easier to find a yeti in the history hallway than someone who wants to do more homework during conference block. Here are ten of the best ways to avoid doing homework while still feeling like you’re doing something productive.

  1. Yodel

This alpine pass time may sound ridiculous, but it’s an incredible way to destress! The louder, the better!

  1. Nonsense

School is about making sense of things, so it’s essential to devote thirty minutes daily to undoing as much logic and reasoning as possible.

  1. Look at images of quokkas

Quokkas (pictured above) are perhaps the cutest animals on earth. They can undoubtedly leave you enraptured for the entire thirty-minute block. Seriously, look them up right now.

  1. Stand perfectly still

This one is simple: pick a spot and stand in it for as long as possible. The hallways are the best place to do this.

  1. Write Satirical Top Ten Lists

Numbers 6 through 2 on this list were written during conference!

  1. Hold your breath

Can you last the full thirty minutes?? 

  1. Unsanctioned experiments

The only science class that Potomac is lacking is a mad science class. Pour some things into a test tube and see what happens! 

  1. Agriculture

The dirt in the quad seems fertile enough. It’s time to start tilling!

  1. Vanquish your foes

Whether it’s a formal duel or a well-planned ambush, you’re sure to have a great time.

  1. Leave

Nothing says productive like going home!
