We’ve been pretty serious on the blog lately, but in typical college student fashion I’m going to do a 180 and go from talking about the real issues in our society to complaining about finals. C’est la vie.
Finals week thus far has been ROUGH. The lady who works at Starbucks cut me off. I cried in the library. Oh, and did you know you can blackout from exhaustion? I didn’t. But then it happened.
I’ve never been one to listen to music while I study, but sometimes you just need a break. Here are a few song suggestions for every finals week situation you might encounter!
When you’re on your way to the library: Hall of Fame, The Script feat. will.i.am
When you’re on your way back to the library at 11:30 pm: Turn Down for What, DJ Snake feat. Lil Jon
When you need some reassurance: Shake it Off, Taylor Swift
When you make eye contact with someone in the library at 3 am and you instantly bond because you’re both going insane: Shout, Isley Brothers
When you really need some reassurance: Shake it Out, Florence and the Machine
When you’re about to turn in a paper: White Flag, Dido
When you’re drinking your 11th cup of coffee today: Stronger, Kelly Clarkson
When you, like, REALLY need some reassurance: Believer, American Authors
When you’re in hard-core study mode: Chopin or Tchaikovsky
When you’re delirious at 3 in the morning: Come on Eileen, Dexy’s Midnight Runners
When you’re about to cry and need a pick me up: Honey, I’m Good, Andy Grammer
When you can’t even remember why you’re doing this: Bills, LunchMoney Lewis

When you’re headed to a final you haven’t really studied for: Let it Go. But this one.
