    In the presence of finals, students are struggling to study every bit of information they learned this past semester and cramming notes, in tiny handwriting, on one side of a small index card, if allowed by their teacher. Six different classes to study for…. the biggest tests of the semester. This is bound to push a student into stress mode. But, is there a way to relieve it?
    Some people eat to relieve stress, some people take hot showers to get things off their mind. Some people make puzzles, and other people turn to music.
    Music is a good way to relieve oneself of the stresses in one’s everyday life. Listening to music is like listening to someone else’s life. In doing that, the listener is getting out of the world around them and entering the singer’s. All the stresses are lifted from the body and set aside.
    But, the type of music they listen to varies from person to person. Some people, like senior Drew McDaniels, listen to Grunge music. How it relieves stress is unknown, but, as he says it, he “kills it with Skillet.”
    On the other hand, freshman Jessica Bohon likes to listen to “Owl City, because it’s relaxing,” when she is stressed out. Owl City has a very soothing sound and is very easy to listen to and become calm while doing so. On that note, sophomore Rachel Mayhew likes to listen to “music that doesn’t have a real deep beat. Kind of like classical music, but still 21st century. Soothing songs like.... I’m Yours (Jason Mraz), Never Think (Robert Pattinson), and Yellow (Coldplay).”
    Having more of a mixed taste for music, when stressed out, sophomore Nick Muñoz listens “to Broadway Musical soundtracks and the Killers.”
    As you can see, there are many different artists out there to help you relieve stress, especially with having to study for finals tomorrow. Finding one that works is the only problem.

    In the presence of finals, students are struggling to study every bit of information they learned this past semester and cramming notes, in tiny handwriting, on one side of a small index card, if allowed by their teacher (awk, and too wordy). Six different classes to study for…. the biggest tests of the semester (fragment). This is bound to push a student into stress mode. But, is there a way to relieve it?
    Some people eat to relieve stress, (yet) some people take hot showers to get things off their mind. Some people make puzzles, and other people (others) turn to music.
    Music is a good (reword) way to relieve oneself of the stresses in one’s (their) everyday life. Listening to music is like listening to someone else’s life (doesn’t make sense). In doing that, the listener is getting out of the world around them and entering the singer’s. All the stresses are lifted from the body and set aside.
    But, (delete but,) the type of music they listen to varies from person to person. Some people, (change to: people like senior…) like senior Drew McDaniels, listen to Grunge music (define: grunge). How it relieves stress is unknown, but, as he says it, he “kills it with Skillet (doesn’t. make. Sense… or maybe im just out of the music loops these days D:, explain?).”

    Music is a geat way to relieve oneself of the stresses in their everyday life. Listening to music is like listening to someone else’s life. In doing that, the listener is getting out of the world around them and entering the singer’s. All the stresses are lifted from the body and set aside.
    The type of music they listen to varies from person to person. People like senior Drew McDaniels listen to Grunge music, a genre of music the incorporates parts of punk rock and heavy metal. How it relieves stress is unknown, but, as he says it, he “kills it with Skillet.” (thats not a term or anything. thats just what he said. Skillet is a grunge band)
