Songs to Get You Through Finals Week

                Work hard, play hard. It’s that time of the year again when the weather is absolutely beautiful, but you also have a bajillion final projects, papers, and exams. But there’s no reason you can’t have the best of both worlds. These songs are helping me get through all the work, but also pumping me up for all the gallivanting in the sun to come. Work hard, play hard. Work hard, play hard. Keep that in mind, listen to these songs, and you will get through these next couple of weeks.

Glee – I Feel Pretty/Unpretty – DON’T RUSH TO JUDGMENT. It is an amazing mash-up of I Feel Pretty (from Westside Story) and Unpretty by TLC. Listen, enjoy, repeat.

The Script – For The First Time (8Barz Remix)
– Such a feel good song that not only motivates me to do work, but also to go out.

Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Jamie XX Remix) [feat. Childish Gambino]
– Adele’s new album 21 is amazing and Rolling in the Deep is a phenomenal single. There have been so many remixes of the song, but my favorite is this one.

Avicii – ID
– I’ve really been into house music lately, and this song is just plain awesome.

The Dean’s List – Dear Professor
– This song is more mellow, but a great motivator.

Happy End of the Year!
