15 Songs To Blast When It's Cram Time Before Finals Aaannnd... You Haven't Studied Yet

From new jams to old jams, we all need a good study playlist.


Final season is upon us -- don't ask me how we got here because I've barely registered that summer is over. But, within the "it's grind season homie" attitudes, we all need some good bops to get us in the study mood. Below are some of my favorites!

1. "Woman Like Me" (feat. Nicki Minaj) by Little Mix 

2. "All I Am" by Jess Glynne 

3. "Head Above Water" by Avril Lavigne 

This new song by Avril Lavigne is truly such a good song. I've listened to it on repeat a few times myself and it's just a good one to remind yourself to keep your head up during this study szn.

4. "Send It On" by Disney's Friends for Change 

Demi Lovato, Joe Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, and Selena Gomez all come together for an amazing song. I don't care how old this song is — it's a good

8. "Weekend" by Kane Brown

9. "Without Me" by Halsey 

10. "As Long as You're Mine" by Wicked (Idina Menzel and Leo Norbert Butz) 

Maybe seems a bit out of place but I sing this song at the top of my lungs in my car and it is one of the greatest love songs of our generation.

11. "Beautiful Soul" by Jesse McCartney 

Can anyone even argue that this song is brilliance?

12. "Whatcha Say" by Jason Derulo 

JASON DERULO. This song is a true jam to the core.

13. "breathin" by Ariana Grande 

Listen to Ari — just keep breathin... and breathin... and breathin.

Rarely played, but a true bop.

A classic at the core.

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?

This Korean K-Pop group is made up of four girls: Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa. Their name, BLACKPINK, is known to illustrate the different personalities of each member in their group as mentioned through an article by, "Refinery 29," and is defined as being a symbol for meaning that, "pretty isn't everything."

There is no denying that this South Korean group has reached their peak of success in the limited amount of time and as stated through a recent article by, "Billboard," they are said to be one of the, "generation's most followed acts."

Their strong sound and bold music has allowed this girl-group to grab a hit upon the Billboard's Top 100 List.

Surprisingly, this popular girl-group has not even reached a release of 10 songs as mentioned by, "Billboard," but their single, 'DDU-DU DDU DU,' has been their most streamed so far.

These girls not only are considered to be K-pop singing sensations, but are known to let out hints of rap into their music as well.

If you want to be a fan of this group, well don't be afraid of considering yourself a, "Blink," because that is what their fan-club calls themselves.

But, before-hand, try looking at a closer look inside their lives, because not only is this team of girls known for their performances but are also recognized for having their own reality TV show series, "BLACKPINK House," that can easily be found and viewed through YouTube.

So, stand-back K-Pop fanatics, BLACKPINK is about to take over your life.
