Grad School For Real

I know a lot of people find classical music helpful to listen to when they are studying or writing a paper. Not me! I find metal the most helpful. It really helps me alleviate frustration. Also let’s be honest, when writing a paper, headbanging is going to happen either way so it might as well be done to music instead of against a wall.

  1. I found cultivating emotional issues to be the most helpful thing in getting through grad school, and it really helped with lashing out at loved ones as well. It’s much cheaper than drug or alcohol dependency and works jut as well.

    Well, for once I must disagree with you. Mozart got me through grad school and lots of research papers. I think the trick may be to not actually listen to it. I don’t know. I just know it worked. In the end, you just have to do what you have to do. Headbang if required, right?

  3. Hahaha. This is so funny. I’ve listened to classical, but I’m more bothered that it’s not got words in it so it doesn’t distract from what I’m actually thinking. But metal could work for that as when they sing the words you often can’t work out what is being said!

  4. For the longest time I couldn’t listen to music while studying as it would distract me. But now that I live here by myself it’s too quiet. I recently found thatinstrumental soundtracks help me a lot! So at the moment I’m listening to the soundtrack of TV shows, which were recorded by a full orchestra, but it’s not classical music.

  5. Tried the listening to classical music bit to improve my studies and make me feel more intellectual – it didn’t work as planned – I just ended up enjoying listening to Beethoven and not studying at all. Good Luck with your paper!
