11 Reasons Why Music Is Awesome

Many things can impact one's life, and this includes the music one may listen to. Everyone in today's society grows up influenced by some type of music in some way unless your society has banned it (like when the Taliban created a ban against all music), which personally I think is the worst punishment anyone could endure. I know personally, without music I'm not quite sure what I would do. Therefore I just want to emphasize that these are some reasons why music is so awesome.

1. Music, specifically classical music, has been proven to boost creativity.

Music helps get those good vibes and creative juices flowing.

2. A person's musical choices can predict their personality.

The music we listen to actually influences our personality! A study of couples spending time getting to know each other while looking at each other’s top ten favorite songs actually provided fairly reliable predictions as to the listener’s personality traits. The study used five personality traits for the test: openness to experience, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness and emotional stability.

3. Music can cause some people to concentrate more.

Music can help us focus while studying or while doing other important tasks.

4. Music helps people exercise.

Who doesn't love listening to a great song while running? Music helps motivate us to exercise harder and faster.

5. Music matches our emotions.

We tend to gravitate towards music that matches the emotion that we are feeling at the time. We can always find that perfect song.

6. Being musically trained can improve our motor skills or reasoning.

Huh, so that's why our parents always wanted us to play instruments!!

7. Music can help people remember things.


Studies have shown Alzheimer's disease patients have the ability to remember lyrics from their old favorite songs. This is crazy and demonstrates how powerful music really is.

8. Music can help people connect.

Music can help reduce global barriers between us. All different cultures around the world have some sort of music that connects them, just as we do.

9. Classical music can help enhance visual attention.

In one study involving stroke patients, music improved visual attention.

10. It helps us cope with certain situations.

Sometimes listening to a song just makes us feel better about a situation because it describes it perfectly. We just need to gather our thoughts, and music helps us to be able to do this.

11. Helps some people sleep.


Need to catch some Z's? Turn on some classical music on low... you'll be peacefully out in no time.

The last 3-4 weeks of every college student’s semester are always crazy hectic. We have last minute assignments, group projects, and exams all squeezed into the last few weeks before break.

Sometimes we all need a little humor, and sometimes we are all a little dramatic, so why not experience the last few weeks of the semester as told by the king of drama himself, Todd Chrisley of Chrisley Knows Best.

1. Sitting in class listening to your professor explain upcoming assignments/exams.

2. When your group project members refuse to do anything until the night before it's due or just show up the day of to present.


3. When you and your roommate try to cook with whatever few ingredients you have left in stock.

Because we definitely want to avoid going to the grocery store at the end of the semester if we can.

4. When your parents get tired of you calling them about every little inconvenience in your life.

5. Sitting down to work on assignments.


6. Your thoughts when the professor is telling you what they want from you out of an assignment.


7. When you've had about 30 mental breakdowns in 2 days.

8. Trying to search out the class for the right group members.

9. The last few days of classes where everyone and everything is getting on your nerves.

10. When your friend suggests going out but you're just done with the world.

11. This. On the daily.

12. When all you want to do is snuggle up and watch Christmas movies.


13. Studying and realizing you know nothing.


14. When your finals are over and it's finally time to go home for break.


You're finally back to your old self.

1. I'm always talking.

The GIF basically does the explaining for me..

Giphy

2. People who can't be independent annoy me.

This GIF basically covers this one too..

Giphy

3. I have impeccable dance moves...  

....or rather the lack thereof

Giphy

4. Slight temper may be an understatement.

I could make a sailor blush if I wanted to. Thanks for the extensive vocabulary, mom!

Giphy

5. I tend to make jokes during serious moments..

...or really any time

Giphy

6. Ever so slightly perverted

I could make basically anything perverted with a look, sound, or phrase to add onto it. It's a gift.

Giphy

7. PIVOT

Doesn't matter the time, occasion, or mood. I can always find a reason to yell this. And yes, sometimes I do say it like Chandler.

8. What I mean 90% of the time when friends invite me to something.

​Sorry girls😂😅

9. Low-key (but no so low-key) clumsy.

Okay, high-key. The other day I face planted because I tripped over nothing. On the bright side, if I wanted a part in a horror movie, I've already got that part down!

Giphy

10. And then there's the obvious reason

I may be weird and a lot to handle, but all in all, I'm pretty awesome.
