the ultimate playlist roundup [lifestyle]

Picture this: You are walking back from a friend's apartment late at night. You're feeling fine; you're a little tired, but you had a nice time. You decide to listen to music for a few minutes as you make your way back to your dorm. You press shuffle on your favorite songs on Spotify (or Apple Music, if you're a barbarian), and the first song that comes on is "Ivy" by Frank Ocean. Before you know it, you're ugly crying. You have to stop and sit down on a bench to collect yourself. Several people stop and ask if you need help. (This is all hypothetical, of course.)

Whether or not you’re familiar with this situation, in our dynamic and fast-paced lives as students, it is absolutely necessary to have multiple playlists for different occasions. Your background music when you're getting ready for a 10 a.m. Monday class should sound a lot different from your background music when you're getting ready to go out at 10 p.m. on a lively Saturday. Your life deserves a movie-quality soundtrack. Therefore, I've curated a master list of four ten-song, no-skip playlists for different moments in your day-to-day life:
