You sit down at your desk after a long, hard day of work. Unraveling your headphones, you anticipate the transcendent melodies of your favorite artists. Today, it’s Elliot Smith, and nothing could stop you from drifting off to the sound of his cherubic voice.

Spring break is officially less then a week away. Already, you can feel the sand beneath your toes as you lounge on the beach. The snow and cold air biting at your face as you prepare to ski down a slope. The smell of your favorite home cooked meal floating in from the kitchen as you hug the family pet that you have missed way too much. But more importantly, all of the stress that has been building up in our minds will melt away as we happily embrace a week of not having to attend class.
Yes, spring break is almost here and I can hardly wait.
However, there is something that stands in our way to freedom. Midterms. Whether it is a test, presentation, or papers, everyone has some dreaded form of midterm torture. But don’t lose faith, my friends. We are on the home stretch and the end is in sight. As you finish up those last minute assignments, here’s a playlist to help get you in the mood for break.
The past few weeks in Nashville can pretty much be summed up in one word – cold. If you’re anything like me, you are beginning to have trouble remembering what it was like before the icepocolypse and finding it hard to believe that there was a time not so long ago that we were all wearing shorts. Between the cold weather and midterms, most of us are feeling pretty down. Here’s my playlist of songs to put you in the summer mood, and remind you that spring and warmth are just around the corner!
With all students — both old and new — arriving back on campus this weekend, our e-staff curated the last playlist of our summer series based on our favorite songs from and about the bustling happy bright shining wonderful happy city of Nashville.
Enjoy, and stay tuned for the return of our live shows September 1st!
