For most of us, going back to school is one of two things: stressful, or terrifying.  For underclassmen, there is fear of not knowing where you are going, how to act, where to sit at lunch, and how to make friends.  For the upperclassmen, that fear and feeling of terror turns into more of an elongated, dreadful stress.  Whichever of these stresses are yours, there is a solution!  To counter either feeling of dread, plug in those headphones, and pump some positivity in through your brain to make those math equations and history dates seem a little easier to deal with.
