Here are some broadway bops that have helped me attack that last essay and study for that last final. These songs give me the stamina I need to get it done, whatever it is! And I hope they can inspire you to get after what needs to be done before Fall 2019 comes to an end, too!!!
- “For Now” (Avenue Q)
Your situation is temporary. This tidal wave of stress will soon pass!
- “Seize the Day” (Newsies)
Now is the time to seize the day!!! Go to the library and be proactive!
- “My Shot” (Hamilton)
Don’t throw away your shot! Make the most of the time you have to prepare for the tasks at hand.
- “Turn It Off” (The Book Of Mormon)
As this riot of a musical suggests, “treat those pesky feelings like a reading light”. Allow yourself an appropriate amount of downtime these last few days. Unplug! Take naps! Turn it off!
- “Chip on My Shoulder” (Legally Blonde the Musical)
Think of the nice, long break that awaits you after this (sigh…). Self-motivation is imperative while tackling finals week!
- “This Is the Moment” (Jekyll & Hyde the Musical)
This is your moment to take everything you have mastered this semester and bring it all together! You’re almost there!
- “Defying Gravity” (Wicked)
This is such an empowering ballad! Listen to this one minute before that exam or final presentation and you, too, will defy gravity!
- “Bottom’s Gonna Be On Top” (Something Rotten)
This one is for those of us that are trying to bump up our grades ASAP…We can make it to the top!
- “I Have Confidence” (The Sound of Music)
Go forth and be confident as you take on these last few hurdles of the semester!
- “One Day More” (Les Misérables)
Play this the day before you’re done with this semester. You made it this far—
one more day to go!!!
