also: (verb) to semi-productively procrastinate

Similar to pro-crastination, but not nearly as productive. Different in that semi-productive procrastination is still about what you should be doing, and can actually lead to what you should be doing.

Similar to productive procrastination, but different in that when you semi-productively procrastinate, what you're doing still relates a little to what you SHOULD be doing but just isn't it.
