Now that the semester has begun in earnest, long hours at Lamont and nights when you "meant to go to brain break for 15 minutes but stayed for three hours" are just around the corner. Fortunately, Flyby has compiled a study playlist to help guide you through your most unproductive evenings.
9:00 p.m. "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from "Mulan"
When you have a pset to finish, you've caught up on all your TV for the week, and you're ready to get down to business.
10:12 p.m. "Junk Food Junkie" by X-Ray Spex
When you've been in the library for 72 minutes and have only checked Facebook five times. Hightail it to brain break for some well-deserved peanut butter jelly time.
10:40 p.m. "Wannabe" by The Spice Girls
When eating alone is pathetic, and you've gotta get with your friends—and tell them that there's salsa at brain break.
11:38 p.m. "Hakuna Matata" from "The Lion King"
When you haven't looked at your pset in more than an hour, but you don't care because your friends are just so great, and who even needs to know about indifference curves anyway? #yolo
12:14 a.m. "Dancing With Myself" by Billy Idol
When all your friends leave you for more productive pastures, but you are a strong, independent woman and don't need those beezies anyway.
When you really should start working on your pset again but need to take a moment to get in the zone.
1:55 a.m. "Heart of Courage" by Two Steps From Hell
When your mind is wandering and you need to make economics seem a lot more thrilling and heroic than it actually is.
2:47 a.m. "All By Myself" by Celine Dion (in the style of Bridget Jones)
When you're still in the dining hall, eating your fourth bowl of Marshmallow Mateys alone.
3:21 a.m. "I Hate Everything About You" by Three Days Grace
When your pset is the worst thing that has ever happened to you.
3:27 a.m. "Asleep" by The Smiths
When you just don't care and decide you'll finish your pset in the morning.
