Okay, I have two essays due on Wednesday, my Calculus III homework due on Monday, and I have to study for the next Organic Chemistry exam on Friday. I should probably remember to eat at some point and then I have to run to my Sorority Chapter meeting.

This is the typical schedule that runs through a college student's head all week long. When will I do this? I need to do that too and try to get ahead. It's stressful and arguably necessary to manage your time and assignments throughout your college career. However, what is not necessary, is to fall into emotional turmoil and therefore you need to take a break.

I, myself, am a victim of college stress and have found a suitable treatment that has helped in relaxing and remembering to be happy even when I'm drowning in school work. And yes, it is indeed: 80's music.

Some people will say that it was the worst decade of music due to the bad hairstyles, psychedelic music videos and down right distasteful fashion outfits. However, no one can argue that at least one of these songs will have you singing along and reminding you that the next exam you have coming up will be okay, you are capable of owning it.

Here's a list of my favorite '80s songs, and yes, save "Friday I'm in Love" for Friday. (Also, I know Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac are from the '70s, but I couldn't help myself.)
