Are you dreading studying for finals? No need to worry! Here's one distraction that will eternally divert your attention: texting your ex. Here's how you can do it:

Step 1: Close any open books. If you want to text your ex, it is important for you to close any open books. It will be difficult to complete the next steps with an open biology textbook in plain sight.

Step 2: Unlock your phone. Duh! In order for you to move forward with your irresponsible plan, you'll need to unlock your phone. Use either your finger print or your four-digit passcode.

Step 3: Draft the text. Put your skills from ENGL 010 to work by drafting a carefully-worded text in which you subtly request that your ex hang out with you.

Step 4: Hit send. Perhaps the most difficult of the tasks. In order to set your plan in motion, you'll need to smash that "send" button. Hitting "send" is the hardest step, but also the most important.
