No one truly likes studying. It takes so much motivation and energy, which is hard to come by when you're already exhausted from being a student. I don't recommend becoming a workaholic, but there are days when you really just do have to study. And that obviously calls for a good playlist…

1. “Work Song” by Hozier

Due at 11:59pm? Do at 11:58pm.

Giphy

Hozier recently made a comeback with his new album "Wasteland, Baby!" (which I highly recommend). But if you haven't heard his debut album, this is one of my favorite songs from it!

2. “Erase” by Mika

Study break, or "Parks and Rec" rewatch break?

Giphy

Mika is well known for songs "Grace Kelly" and "Lollipop", but this one is way more somber and emotional. Perfect for when you find out you have to redo an entire project because you read the rubric wrong.

3. “Okay Alright I’m Alive” by Bahamas

Me emerging from the library at 1am finally ready to go back to my room and sleep.

Giphy

Anyone: How are you?

Me: Okay

Anyone: Alright

Me: I'm Alive

4. “No More Second Chances” by MKTO

Realizing you submitted the wrong document and you can't resubmit...

Giphy

Yes, "Classic" is a classic. But so are the rest of their songs!

5. “IDFWY” by Big Sean feat. E-40

You: I truly don't give a f---!!! Your brain:

Giphy

Sometimes you just gotta let it out and scream this song at the top of your lungs.

6. “Lost” by Frank Ocean

When you're stuck on a problem and all your friends are asleep... who you gonna call?

Giphy

Sing it, Frank.

7. “wRoNg” by ZAYN feat. Kehlani

I'm SORRY, autograded quizzes!

Giphy

This song features a combination of two of the greatest singers of the modern age… So yeah, I would say it's pretty good.

8. “It Only Gets Much Worse” by Nate Ruess

When does this semester end? I WANNA GO HOME!!!

Giphy

If you ever jammed to "We Are Young" by fun. (don't lie, you did), and didn't know the lead singer was a solo artist, you'll be happy to find that he makes his own music.

9. “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence

Catch me snoozing on top of my notes like it's my job.

Giphy

Sometimes you just need someone to yell in your ear for you to wake up, and this song is exactly the one for that.

10. “Alone” by Surfaces

Ohana means family, and family are those friends who bring you food so you can eat the stress away.

Giphy

That feel when it hits midnight and you're sitting by yourself in the library struggling...we've all been there.

11. “Girls Love Toast” by The Holdup

Toast is one of mankind's best inventions (after sliced bread).

Giphy

Because girls really do love toast.

12. “Finish Line / Drown” by Chance the Rapper feat. T-Pain, Kirk Franklin, Eryn Allen Kane, and Noname

YES! NEARLY THERE!

Giphy

Honestly, my favorite part of this song is the "Harry Potter" reference, but it's also a lyrical masterpiece. Win-win situation.

13. “Light in the Hallway” by Pentatonix

Don't let the light in the hallway bother you.

Giphy

Calm yourself down with soothing a cappella!

14. “Hell or High Water” by Lacy Wilder

So close.

Giphy

I personally know Lacy- humble brag, I know- but I find that this is the greatest hype song to listen to before the final stretch.

15. “Conqueror” by AURORA

YOU DID IT!

Giphy

Celebrate the end of your studying! You are victorious.

No matter how long it takes you, or how much you end up studying, you got this. Best of luck this upcoming finals season. (Full playlist can be found here.)

    Repeat These Khalid Songs To Prepare For Mayfest

    A list of Khalid songs you need to know in order to be adequately prepared for Mayfest.

    views

    The day everyone looks forward to since the first day of fall semester: Mayfest.

    This year we are being blessed with the musical stylings of Khalid (which will undoubtedly be an improvement from Gucci Mane - sorry if there are any devoted fans out there). In order to be prepared for the madness/greatness that is quickly approaching this April 26, listen to these Khalid songs so you get pumped/can sing along with everyone else/so you can say you know who Khalid is before spending money on a ticket.

    1. "Location"

    A classic. I am almost certain everyone has heard this song at least once, whether aware or not. It's soft and vibe-y. You can just sway back and forth as you bask in the smoothness of Khalid's voice.

    2. "Outta my Head" with John Mayer

    Naturally, any song featuring John Mayer is destined for success. This is no exception. Khalid delivers a catchy, fun song with the help of Mayer. It was just recently released on his new album, "Free Spirit."

    3. "Young Dumb & Broke"

    My anthem senior year of high school whenever I was about to make a questionable decision. It might be a little strange singing it in college now that we are supposed to be ~adults~ but you know, still a jam.

    4. "Heaven"

    Another song off his new album, "Heaven" truly showcases Khalid's talent and range. It is kind of slow and sad, but regardless it is a great song that you might enjoy.

    5. "Coaster"

    Another song that shows Khalid's slow and sensitive side, "Coaster" is a catchy song that will undoubtedly be played during Mayfest.

    6. "Free Spirit"

    Considering it's the name of his newest album, I'm guessing "Free Spirit" will be featured during the concert. It's catchy and fun and really a song for anyone!

    7. "8TEEN"

    Another catchy one that celebrates youth, I promise you'll find yourself singing along to this one without even realizing it.

    Happy listening and HAPPY MAYFEST!
