A Playlist for Long Essay Writing Days



^This is exactly how I feel when I have to write a 4000 word essay over the weekend^

I've got this huge deadline on Monday and have only about half the words written right now. This basically means I'm going to spend the entire weekend behind my computer trying to get it done. But that is ok if I at least have some upbeat music to keep me going. And I thought why not share a few of my favourite songs right now. This is the first time I'm sharing any kind of playlist and I'm pretty scared. Most of the time I'm pretty ashamed of my music taste, so sorry if you hate all of these songs. 

Also, I'm pretty excited: yesterday my mom and I booked tickets to go see Birdy in three weeks. I can't wait, I've loved her music for such a long time and she just got a new album out too. I should probably put that entire album on this list, because that is what I'm going to be listening to in the run-up to the concert. Enjoy.

    1. Yeah I everyone has different tastes when it comes to music and studying. I can listen to lyrics really well and actually get bored listening to instrumental music. But I never listen to the lyrics so it's fine for me. Hope you can enjoy it in a different way, blogging sounds perfect.
