The Essential Finals Week Playlist

Sometimes just finding the motivation to study is harder than the studying itself. If I’m being completely honest, it’s the reason I’m writing this here post!

In these moments of desperation, only three things can motivate me: a certain bean-based drink, classical music, and Kanye West.

It’s probably time to stop procrastinating…in five more minutes. It doesn’t matter where you choose to studyjust make sure you listen to our finals week playlist as you get ready to ace those exams, or at least throw it on in the background as you seep into further denial. There’s some motivational ‘Ye to start you off, classical music to carry you through the bulk of your work, and intense instrumental songs to finish it off. As daunting as it all seems this week, just trust me on this one thing: listen to 2:58- 4:05 of Kanye West and Jay Z’s “H.A.M.” and you’ll be golden.
