I listen to a lot of different music, but when I’m stressed, I always go through the same artists.
It’s inadvertent. Usually, I don’t even realize that I’m listening to my stress music until about five songs in. It’ll start with *NSYNC, go over to Whitney Houston, move into The Judds. But DEFCON 1? Boy George and Culture Club. Every time. I have *cried* to Karma Chameleon while studying for finals in the Student Union at least five times in my three years at UNC. I’m sure I’ll do it again.
I listened to Boy George on the way to class today. I need a nap.
Things to know
Remember how stressful getting ready for your first year of college was? A lot of international students recall that feeling tenfold, with a major lack of support from the University before they came to school.
