Friday Fixat10ns: Songs To Nap To This Weekend

Friday Fixat10ns

Having one of those weeks where all you want to do is take a nap? Well, you are in luck because here at 4E we have come up with the perfect soundtrack to listen to (or sleep to) while you catch up on those Zzs. If you fall asleep before this playlist ends, we did our job.

[8tracks url=”[8tracks width=”300″ height=”250″ playops=”” url=”https://8tracks.com/mixes/7858234″]

  1.  “In Your Atmosphere” – John Mayer: Didn’t get that dream internship in L.A.? Neither did John Mayer it seems. Let the soothing sounds of John Mayer sing you to sleep as you contemplate the fear of living at home for yet another summer with your family.
  2. “Like Real People Do”- Hozier: Learn to nap like real people do with awesome sound tracks like this one. Listening to Hozier’s mellow sound will send you into a hypnotizing sleep, the kind of 8 hours a night sleep that “real people” are supposed to get.
  3. “Landslide”- Fleetwood Mac: Georgetown is stressful, with so many clubs, classes and other activities, it can seem like a landslide of work is constantly pilling up. Listen to this song to get away from your worries, if only for an afternoon nap.
  4. Stop this Train”- John Mayer: Yet another shining example of why I consider John Mayer to be the mayor (haha get it) of nap time. Drift off to sleep while contemplating growing old and all the stress that comes with it.
  5. “Clean”- Taylor Swift: This song may be inspired by Taylor’s breakup with One Directioner Harry Styles, but it can also be applied to your soon-to-be breakup with your high GPA. Listening to this song will give you a sense of peace and make you feel “clean” inside and out.
  6. “I Want to Write You a Song”- One Direction: Speaking of Harry Styles, here is a super cute 1D song that is perfect for dozing off. Bonus points if you end up dreaming about writing a song with 1D.
  7. “Cherry Wine”- Hozier: What could be better than wine and napping? That’s right, listening to this Hozier song about wine while napping. If you listen closely, it almost sounds like Hozier himself is getting a little sleepy just singing.
  8. “Hate to See Your Heart Break”- Hayley & Joy Williams:  Your heart will break if you don’t listen to this one. It has some low notes and some high points, but most importantly it will rock you to sleep like the lullaby you wish your mom could have sung to you.
  9. “Autumn Leaves”-Ed Sheeran: Yes, I know, it is technically spring right now, but it has been so cold lately that it is practically autumn again. This Ed Sheeran bonus track might be one of my favorite nappy time songs, it is just so sweet and sleepy.
  10. “I’ll Be Good”- Jaymes Young: Ah yes, what I tell myself every Friday night. I’ll be good this weekend, I’ll wake up before 11, I’ll do my homework, I’ll work out. Instead of actually doing any of those thing, just listen to this song and you will be filled with a sense that you actually did something good.

Well, there you have it! 4E’s perfect playlist to nap to this weekend! So don’t start working on all of those huge final research papers, take a nap instead.

What is Your Study Soundtrack?

635753781152924098-1442154841_Musicals

It’s the night before your midterm, and in typical Georgetown fashion, you haven’t started studying yet. You attempt to read through your class notes and realize that you haven’t even been paying attention in class enough to take notes.

Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could find a catchy way to remember all those facts If there was some way to absorb all that information without actually doing anything Well you are in luck, here is a list of musical soundtracks that will actually help you study.

U.S. History- Try “Hamilton”

Founding fathers in a rap battle, what more could you ask for?! This hiphop musical actually makes U.S. history seem interesting.

Any MSB class ever- Try “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”

Because, let’s be honest, isn’t this the ultimate goal of the MSBro?

Spanish- Try “In the Heights”

Half this soundtrack is in Spanish, so just listen to it and you will be golden!

French- Try “Les Miserables”

This soundtrack is the perfect combination of emotional ballads and inspirational tunes, allowing you to cry your way through the French revolution and come out feeling empowered.

Bib Lit- Try “Godspell”

This musical is literately the story of Jesus. Even if you haven’t paid any attention in this class all semester, this soundtrack will save you.

Psychology- Try “Next to Normal”

The characters in this musical have more issues than The Hoya. Seriously, this family is cray.

Economics- Try “Rent”

This is literally the only thing you need to know for any Econ class.

Theology- Try “The Book of Mormon”

This will teach you everything you need to know about being a Mormon. Warning: You may be tempted to sing along, so this is not recommended for a cubical dweller. But, if you do, be prepared to get serious side eye.

Ecology- Try “Little Shop of Horrors”

This will teach you all about the intricacies of plant life. If you want to learn how to grow a man-eating plant, this is the musical for you.

So go ace those midterms, Hoyas!

Spanish 002 Study Guide

spanish

As finals week reaches its last few days, the end is in sight! After countless hours in Lau doing Econ problem sets and memorizing those IR questions you probably feel that you deserve to take a break. But wait, you still have that Spanish exam tomorrow. In case you are like me and somehow have forgotten every word you have ever learned in Spanish, do not panic, here is all you need to know:

Section I: Listening Comprehension:

By far the hardest section of the whole exam. You will hear a series of very fast and confusing conversations. Right when you think you understand what is said, they say something else that you completely miss. Unfortunately, the recording is only played once.

How to study for this section: Listen to Spanish Music

These fast paced Spanish pop songs are great studying soundtracks, even if you can only understand 2 words out of the whole song, it’s better than nothing.

Recommendation: Shakira, Shakira, Shakira

Section II: Reading comprehension:

You will be given an article written entirely in Spanish and you will probably have no idea what is about. You will then have to answer questions about this article, still having no idea what the questions are even asking

How to study for this section: Visit a Local Mexican Restaurant

Go have breakfast/lunch/dinner at Chipotle, El Centro or Los Cuates. The menus at restaurants are in Spanish, and will teach you valuable Spanish vocabulary like “burrito” or “taco”. These words will most likely show up on your test at some point.

Section III: Crossword 

This section is straight up memorization. You are given all the clues and the answers ahead of time, sounds pretty straight forward. Except you are expected to know all 282 terms. Good luck…

How to study for this section: Quizlet.

Or if you want to go old school go ahead and make 282 flashcards.

Section IV:  Composition

Basically you have to write a bunch of paragraphs in Spanish about a topic.

How to Study for this section: Relearn every word, verb tense and preposition you ever learned in class.

If you run out of stuff to write about, fill the next few lines with phrases your remember like “Cinco de Mayo” or “hola mi nombre es..”. You could also try and write really big to make it look like you wrote the line requirement.

Good luck, buena suerte and, if all else fails, watch this video:

Winter Survival Guide

wintersurvivalguide

If you somehow didn’t notice the white stuff that have been falling from the sky recently or the freezing cold temperatures, let this article assure you it is in fact winter at Georgetown.

georgetown

So before you start filling out your transfer application to Berkley or University of Miami here are some tips to help you survive the cold.

1. Before going outside, dress in every single item of clothing in your closet. You may at first feel stupid, but you will be warm.

2. Cold toilet seat? No problem, just sacrifice a few socks to create this masterpiece.

3. Invest in a sleeping bag suit. It may seem like an impulsive buy, but also quite possibly the warmest thing you will ever own.

4. Trick yourself into thinking that you are in a tropical location instead of this polar vortex by decorating your room with things that remind you of summer.

5. Avoid ice at all costs. It may seem like a good idea at the time to try and slide across the ice like a cool kid, but you will most likely end up falling.

If you even find yourself feeling down about the weather here in DC, just remember that there are places that have it much, much worse.

No one wants to live in that.
