As school comes to an end, the collective stress level of students across the country seems to have skyrocketed. Final tests and projects are flooding our brains and leaving scraps of pressure to impress our parents at open house. Learning to cope with all of this worry is something I still haven’t managed to master, even after years of experience. Only one thing seems to ease my anxiety.

Music has been a constant in my life since birth. It is something that my family connects with. We all share a similar love for little catchy tunes. My mom listened to music while I was in the womb, my dad has made me playlists for when I exercise, and I even fall asleep to my own calming melodies.

Happy tunes when you need to be lifted. Even slow music for awkward school dances. There is always a genre or artist that I can count on. To quote one of my favorite songs, “The only time it seems clear is when music is played, some relatable creator says I’ll soon be okay.”
