Last day of exams

So I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there are giant bean bags all over the main part of the UBCV campus. I’m looking at you, Main Mall.

They’re literally huge, white, squishy, organ-shaped sacks with “Pop Rocks” printed on them in red ink. They appear to be here for the sole purpose of being stepped, sat, and lounged upon. seriously UBC, what’s going on.

They’re not even that soft 🙁 Lounge upon them I did, though! With a vengeance.

Friendly warning: contact with the giant bean bags results in noticeable amounts of static. Use this knowledge to your advantage.

Anyways, my point is that I finally have time to goof off on giant bean bags and not feel bad about it.  My last exam was biomechanics and I’d like to say that I aced it but who knows.

I’m not worrying about it, because I’ve got four academic-free months of summer! Huffah! 😀

Now to job hunt and clean my room. Yay priorities.


And here’s my new favourite song!

PS. I think I’ve pretty much kept up my end of the Blog Squad contract, so that’s all good and done now. I’m not really sure if I still count as a BlogSquadder or not, but I’m going to continue blogging into the summer (so you can sleep soundly now).

Ways to procrastinate: Find new music!

In the face of neverending midterms, I find myself doing anything to avoid studying.  Bad student? Yes, I am.  Anyways…

Move over iTunes Genius, because I’ve found new ways to find cool music and playlists!  My fall playlist has been updated, and I’m very happy about that.  Here, take a look:

1. Songza

Feeling angsty, but can’t find the right music to cry to? Try Songza, which is a free service which recommends and streams music for you!  It’s actually pretty cool— it has a concierge service which can provide you with a carefully crafted playlist depending on your mood!  I use it for all sorts of activities; room-cleaning, homework-doing, sleep-going, etc.  Songza can also be found in app form for iOS and Android.


My friend showed me this one.  Type an artist’s or band’s name into the search bar, and the website find their top ten tracks for you! Sometimes, they’re even available to stream.  This is great if you’ve just heard of a band and want to hear more!  Now everybody, go listen to Tegan and Sara.

3. YouTube Discovery

It’s basically YouTube and tothebestof.com combined.  Stream music videos from your favourite artists in an automatic playlist! Unfortunately, the service tends to give you live videos, so this isn’t really the greatest for straight-up music listening 😛 But this all about procrastinating, isn’t it?

Take note that you need internet connection for all of these services to work! Or you could always do things the old fashioned way and swap iPods with somebody else 🙂 By the way, this is an attempt to start a blog series! Except the episodes/posts won’t come consistently, because I’m inconsistent like that.

Happy listening!
