amy y | 13 comments I know there probably seem to be many ways to relieve stress... but my parents are like strict. Back up a little, it's nearly the AP exams so my parents forced me to study like 24/7. I know it's good for me and I should... but it just gets so tiring after a few hours. I told my parents and they were just like: oh well you spend some extra time studying now, it will all payback in the end. I get it... but what can I do to relieve a little stress... I don't know its so ugh. So yeah, I can't go hang out w/ friends, no video games (not that I play any), no outside reading (well okay I read anyway just cuz I can't concentrate for hours)... any suggestions guys...? I really don't know.

What helps me is I go outside and run a few miles, just to get my blood pumping again. Just like five or six miles and then I generally am able to concentrate again.

Yeh excercising helps with stress, maybe punching something like pillows, or listening to music


message 5: by amy (new)

amy y | 13 comments lol thanks pillows xD is it only me or do other ppl some time get distracted while listening to music too?


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeh sometimes but it's just a little break... And pillows is better than what I use when I'm mad

I don't believe I know who she is....but I love Christina Perri, her new song called human is amazing and Ellie Goulding dead in the water (song from divergent) I just love it so much.

Maryanne | 100 comments I like Taylor Swift I think she is alright, I do listen to her songs though. Great talent, and very pretty too. :D


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Swift is just okay. She sings about love too much though...


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

I liked her older songs like love story and mean and ours but I don't really care for the new ones

amy y | 13 comments what's your fav song by her? :D? I really like Enchanted, Cold As You, The Moment I Knew and Firefly (it's an unreleased one, which she wrote and sang when she was 13 (?) I think... )

Sara Campbell (admiralawesome) | 1 comments Listening to music while studying is actually a great study habit! I'm serious. Your brain will create a connection between the song and the material you are studying. So during your test, if you're stuck, just think about the songs you were listening to when you were studying.

I like her album 22, and some of her old songs too like love story and you belong with me.
