Samantha's Midterm Study Playlist

As someone who constantly plays music in the background, I love creating playlists to make studying more bearable. This midterm season I’ve been listening to both longtime favorites and songs I discovered over the past six months. My music taste is always evolving, but I found even more songs and artists by exploring Spotify and TikTok. I enjoy listening to indie folk and alternative pop music while I’m preparing for exams. I’ve chosen songs that capture the exhaustion of studying and writing papers, but also send good vibes. I believe that music helps me develop a positive attitude and a strong work ethic for the atmosphere I build in my study space. Here are my go-to songs for surviving midterms this season!

  2. 2. “Mess” by Noah Kahan

  3. 3. “River” by Leon Bridges

  6. 6. “Poetry” by Wrabel
