Epic BGM Playlist: Study Grind

Midterms, finals, repeat — this is the endless cycle most college students go through during their undergraduate studies and studying has never gotten more intense. Many people have different ways of studying whether that’s in silence or with subtle music playing in the background. There are also people who don’t even listen to music subtly while studying, but blast it full volume so that they can block out other unnecessary and distracting noises. If it comes to playing music while you study, which can range from classical music to ambient sounds, listening to these can either make you fall asleep as you study or feel completely unmotivated, which leads to procrastination. So what’s a solution to this lack of wanting to study? Two words: epic music.

Epic music has many different meanings, but generally it is music that instills inspiration or motivation because it’s powerful and is full of sounds that make you feel like acing that Physics or Bio midterm/final can actually become a reality. It takes you to another world, and you’ll feel like you’re no longer sitting in your room or at the library with your face planted inside a textbook. Listening to epic music as you study or write an essay, can bring out hidden abilities you never thought you could possess, or maybe that’s because you’re twenty minutes away from turning in that essay before the due date. Whatever the case, this epic BGM playlist serves to empower your studies and help you get through that midterm/final cycle because once that’s done, you can conquer anything like the epic-ness this playlist makes you feel.
