I am in the process of studying for my final exams of my last undergraduate Fall semester, and while I’m luckier than others (only two final exams and one term paper), I still have a lot to be done in one week.
And of course,I love music so much that I cannot study without it. Growing up, my mother used to blame my bad math grades on the fact that I used to sing at the top of my lungs while solving the problems, but thankfully once I got to college, she got used to my quirky study habits- which no, I haven’t outgrown.
I created a special playlist on my Songbird Player just for this wonderful *insert sarcasm* period in hopes that a)I would have a wider choice of music to select since I usually prefer two or three songs and keep listening to them over and over again and b) I would motivate myself to study and not just sing so loudly my family would have to yell at me.
No such luck.
Out of the 91 songs on that playlist, I will admit that I’ve only heard one- Hurricane- 30 Seconds to Mars ft Kanye West, a song that I wished I had discovered once it was released, and in true me-mode, I am this close to memorizing the lyrics and getting to know everything about the background of that song.
I should really be studying- but I’m not.
