Second Wind-ter: a Late Winter Break Playlist
Hannukah, was swell! [insert socks joke here]. Christmas, great! [insert problematic family comment here]. And don’t get me started on Kwanzaa! [I actually celebrate it, but like no commentary needed]. But here lies the issue, the holidays are over. No more awkward family food fests, or cheesecake, or excitement from your parents. Yes, seeing all your best friends from home was great but you can hold your friends hair back at school [Here’s to you New Years’s]. You need a boost to get you through! [Download after the jump]
Noise Violation: A Back to School Playlist
Let’s be honest, whether or not the summer was good to us, we are sort of ready for school. Ready for friends and the quad, and donating endless hours in the library. Well maybe not the last part but either way, whether you are back in dorms or in your off campus digs you will need some tunes to bump while the weather is still nice! Make sure to crank it, we’re sure everyone even your cranky RA and crotchety neighbors will jam.
