April 2017 Playlist

april 2017 playlist

As a way to get back into the world of blogging, I want to kick it off with one of my favorite kinds of posts. I have been listening to some awesome music here lately and I wanted to share that awesomeness with you guys! It’s a wild mix but I love it. Ed Sheeran’s new album has given me life and attending the American Nightmare Tour with Bring Me The Horizon, Beartooth, and Underoath just brought out that love even more. There’s also some random rap mixed in there because you know your girl has her dancin’ side!

Music is one of my favorite outlets and it always makes me feel better. So, what better way to share myself with you guys than to show you songs on my playlist are? I listen to everything from pop to metalcore, so you might learn some new songs or you might jam to something you already love!

Now I’m going to share with you guys what my top ten most played songs are currently on my iTunes playlist. I can definitely say that the first three are not inaccurate but the others are more like “transition” music with exceptions to a few awesome ones (like Def Leppard, duh).

#1 Body Bag by Beartooth

#3 The Lines by Beartooth

#4 I Can’t Stop Drinking About You by Bebe Rexha

#5 Shower by Becky G

Blogmas Day 2 | How To ROCK Finals Week

how to rock finals week

I bet I can guess what you’re stressed about right now. Two words. Many exams. Lots of anxiety. FINALS. WEEK. Yup, finals week is upon us for many universities, including my own. Now, as an education major, the majority of my courses do not do final exams. I have one cumulative final and that is on Monday (positive vibes plz) but other than the things I needed to complete were lesson plans, projects, papers, reflections, and just “end-of-the-unit” exams. I am extremely blessed and grateful that I do not get bogged down with exams in the last week of the semester but I know maaany friends, bloggers, and readers that do. That’s why I’m here to help you ROCK finals week and kick it in the pants!

The Playlist

Now, you know Mama needs a good playlist to rock out to during her study time. I’m sure many of you are the same so I’ve come up with the ultimate INSTRUMENTAL jams list for all your studying needs. Some have some minor parts that say a single word but most of it is either unrecognizable or so quick that it doesn’t bother me. I do have an eclectic music taste so there is everything from EDM to metalcore in this playlist. I personally cannot listen to lyrics while studying or else I’ll write them instead of my notes, I’ll sing them and won’t remember anything I read, and it’s just bad.

The xx – Intro: Seriously my all-time favorite studying song to put on loop. And the link I gave you is an almost three-hour seamless loop of the song. 😉
Brian Eno – The Big Ship
Skrillex & Rick Ross – Purple Lamborgini (Instrumental)
AndrezoWorks – Injection
AndrezoWorks – Neon Lights
AndrezoWorks – My Will
DEAF KEV – Invincible
Jacob Lizotte – Seven Years
Sam Whitaker – Creation
Sam Whitaker – Structure

The Supplies

The perfect set of school supplies to study with is a must have when beginning an all-nighter sesh at the library to study for those three finals you have back-to-back on the same day (Don’t you love have schools schedule that?). These are what I use when studying and what I think you definitely need to have when diving in.

  • Pencils
  • Pens (of assorted colors)
  • Notebook paper or assigned notebooks
  • Textbooks and class notes
  • Laptop computer or tablet
  • Headphones
  • Water bottle and snacks
  • Money (in case you need to buy a new brain or some coffee)
  • Highlighters
  • Notecards
  • Any study guides or important information from classes
  • Sticky notes

Helpful Posts

Lastly, I’ve gathered some awesome blog posts that will also assist you in all your finals week needs. Everything from destressers to study methods to keeping you on task. There are tons of posts out there, just look it up on Pinterest, but I found these to be very helpful and great posts overall.
