Studying is hard. Studying at the end of the semester is really hard. Studying at the end of the semester right before Christmas is really, really hard. To make the task a little less painful, I made a playlist of some mellow, festive tunes that you can play in the background while you study in your room, the library, or anywhere else. Some of my favorite artists are on this playlist, including Norah Jones, The Head and the Heart, She and Him, Sara Bareillis, and Hope grad Sufjan Stevens. I make playlists all the time but I think this is one of my all-time favorites. Enjoy, and happy studying!
