Does the amount of homework you get make you want to dasi run run run to Korea and abandon it all? Yes? Keep reading.
Before I begin, I have a few more questions for y'all
❀ Is s̲̅c̲̅h̲̅o̲̅o̲̅l̲̅ here?
♛ Are you ᏚᎢᎡᎬᏚᏚᎬᎠ about an upcoming test or exam that might really affect your grades?
❀Are you falling over from lack of $ŁẸẸP?
♛Are you ᑕOᑎᖴᑌᔕEᗪ about what you want to do with your life?
❀Are you mad that you don't have enough time to relax and scroll through M⃣e⃣m⃣e⃣s⃣?? :scream: :scream:
If you answer yes for any of these, I hope my motivation playlist will help you.
This song IS dope of course and will make you hyped up and energetic, but it's also ⓢⓞ ⓘⓝⓢⓟⓘⓡⓐⓣⓘⓞⓝⓐⓛ. It says that in order to catch your dream and do great things in the future, you need to work hard and save the partying for later.
A lot of young kids tend to procrastinate (ahem me) and want to put off work, but if you want to accomplish your goals, you need to work for it.
Just remember that that's what Bangtan did and look at where they are now! They worked their butts off but it all paid off in the end.
"I worked all night, every day
[iC]while you were playing in the club"
[iC]"Don't ever give up, you know you not lonely
[ic]Our dawn is prettier than the day
[ic]so can I get a little bit of hope?
[ic]wake your sleeping youth, go"
The choreography, lyrics, outfits and everything is :fire: on its own. And once you put it together it's all just an explosion of perfection :joy:
"Just live how you want, your life is yours. Don't try so hard. It's alright to lose"
[ic]"We're still young. Who do you think you are to say otherwise. Stop comparing, I'm just me"
Words of wisdom right there. "It's alright to lose." When BTS was reaching for their dream, they had faults along the way. It's not always a rainbow road. But at the end of the path, what awaits you is all up to you. Your life is yours.
3. Young Forever
[bc]This. Song. Makes. Me. So. Emotional.
"I console myself
[ic]I tell myself that there is no such thing as a perfect world
[ic]I slowly empty myself
[ic]I can't always get a big standing ovation every time"
[ic]"I may fall down and get hurt
[ic]But I still run endlessly towards my dreams"
Such an important message. It's inevitable that people will fall down and get hurt, but if we didn't get up and try again, where would we be? Just keep running and you'll be fine.
•just keep swimming, just keep swimming :fish: •
4. No More Dream
I think many people can relate to this song- Parents have our whole lives planned out for us. But what is YOUR dream? Go on your own path and do what makes Y O U happy.
[bc]Of course I'm not suggesting to go against your parents, but don't let them get in the way of your destiny. It's way easier said than done, but if you truly put your heart into it you can do it.
"I wanna big house, big cars & big rings
But actually, I don't have any big dreams."
[ic]"Grown-ups and my parents
keep instilling confined dreams to me"
"Go on your path, Even if you live for a day
Do something, Put away your weakness"
N.O. adds onto the idea in No More Dream. The things your parents want for you- good house, good car, government job/some fancy occupation- will this bring happiness?
[Bc]Ahh and my favorite line is definitely "Don't be trapped in someone else's dream."
[bc]No one knows you better than yourself, so why should others tell you what to make of your life? As long as you stand strong, always go where your heart takes you.
[ic]"There’s no conversation topics besides studying"
[ic]"Living the life of a puppet"
[ic]"A good house, a good car, will these things bring happiness?
[ic]In Seoul to the SKY, will parents really be happy?
[ic]"Don't be trapped in someone else's dream"
"No matter how much I wander, I want to believe in my path"
"Even if I’m slow I will walk with my own feet
[ic]Because I know this path is mine to take
[ic]Even if I go back, I will reach this path eventually
[ic]I never I will never
[ic]I will never lose my dream"
Even if your dream seems impossible and 'so far away' ( :sparkles: 🌙), remember the Bangtan boys. When they first had their debut from the little company called BigHit, did they expect to make such a big impact on the world and music history?
Your wings already exist. All you need to do is make them fly.
[c]-No More Dream
I know so many ARMYs out there are struggling with school, so I really hope this makes you all more motivated and optimistic about the future :hearts:
You can do whatever you set your heart to, I promise. Fighting~
-Gifs used are not mine-
[cb]thank you chingus for the feature♡ I'm so so glad that this post has helped some of you be more confident about school and your dream ♡
Are you one of those students who picks a playlist before even reaching for a book? Or do you find any kind of background noise – even your favorite band – distracting when trying to get down to studies?
The question of whether or not listening to music while studying can boost your performance remains hotly debated. However, the bad news for those in the headphones-keep-my-brain-alive camp is that most of the recent research suggests silence is actually the best study setting. You may be unsurprised to hear that researchers have also found that presenting these findings seems to have pretty much no effect on the behavior of students convinced of the benefits of music for studying!
Music and the brain: What does the research say?
Sadly, it now seems pretty clear that the widely proclaimed “Mozart effect” was a myth almost entirely concocted by the media; listening to one particular composer or genre is highly unlikely to transform your intellectual powers. So if you’ve been force-feeding your ears sonatas in the hope of improving your exam scores, cease and desist! This kind of connection between music and the brain is a tabloid-created fable.
However, psychologist Francis Rauscher, whose research on music and the brain inadvertently prompted the whole “play classical music to your unborn child” craze, says she still believes that the right connection between music and the brain can improve certain cognitive skills (like spatial intelligence) for a short time period (about 10 minutes). She also says the most effective music will vary depending on the person. In short: “If you hate Mozart you're not going to find a Mozart Effect. If you love Pearl Jam, you're going to find a Pearl Jam effect.”
On the other hand, the research of Dr Nick Perham, based at the University of Wales, suggests that listening to music while studying – regardless of how much you love or hate the sound – is likely to impede “serial-recall” skills, required for tasks ranging from mental arithmetic to language learning. He’s also found that music containing lyrics is especially disruptive during any task involving reading – a point also argued by Stanford University professor Clifford Nass.
However, both Perham and Nass acknowledge the potential of music to help create the perfect state of mind for studying, somewhere in between relaxation and excitement. So it seems that listening to some favorite music before commencing studies could help, even if silence is golden during the actual brainwork.
Best music for studying: What do our bloggers say?
Despite the efforts of academia to persuade us that switching off the tunes will really help switch on our intellects, many students remain convinced that their headphones are an essential study tool. Here’s what three of our TopUniversities student bloggers had to say about the best music for studying…
Aliya: Match the tempo to the task
"Studying has different appearances. Sometimes it requires active approach. Sometimes there is a need to concentrate, to be patient and diligent in order to revise material or learn something by heart; in this case nothing else but classical music is a helpful companion for me. Though there are some occasions when I like studying in complete silence, I can remember several bright moments which involved formulas to be used for problem-solving, textbooks to be read or notes to be typed up, when my brain was stimulated by rock ‘n’ roll beats."
Zain: Save the music for study breaks
"As far as music is concerned, I am generally more inclined towards listening to soothing and soft songs. However, when I am studying I strictly refrain from listening to any melodies as I am easily distracted. That said, I do enjoy some short study breaks with snacks and a song or two just to refresh my mind. I also like to listen to some motivational songs and those that have really strong lyrics; Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing being one of them…"
Felix: Give yourself the right vibe
"Listening to music while studying is a lot like self-administering a chill pill; you have to know what type of music you need to work best in your current state of mind. Because emotions are varied, you may (like me) have many studying playlists. Over the past eight years, I have built six playlists for different scenarios, from “you got this bro” to “I would murder the physical manifestation of this subject” (actual title of playlist invented especially for organic chemistry, which is quite ironic if you think about it) and everything in between.
But the playlist I use the most is “chill/relax”. The overall description would be atmospheric music without vocals. The most vocal song in the list is an Enya song… where the words blend harmoniously with the background. From my experience, if you can sing along with the song, then it makes for a terrible chill/relax studying song. A genre which is a good source of music for studying to is chill step (please don’t write me off as a musical degenerate), which creates an upbeat trance sort of vibe. There are lots of great and not so great playlists on YouTube to sample.
But the single best genre I have found for providing good music for studying is traditional Spanish guitar, specifically flamenco music. It has worked wonders (and unbelievable miracles) on some of my test scores. A good place to start is with Paco de Lucia, or just search for 'amazing Spanish guitar'."
