As students, we are naturally inclined to want to relax or blow off a little steam after weeks of hellish midterms. Some of us like to party, while others prefer to stay in watching entire seasons of their favourite television shows with hot mugs of tea. Although we wish we could do anything but look at a textbook, we are faced with the ominous reality that we have mountains of readings to get through before the week’s end.

Couldn’t decide whether to dance the night away or bury your face in books? To acknowledge the Party Patty you’ve recently been, Side A is filled with happy fun-time tracks that are sure to make you forget about school for the week. Now that you’re back to being a Studious Sam, flip over to Side B for a calming selection of tracks that will help you get back on that study grind. Enjoy!
