Happy Music Monday! This is the week before spring break, so everyone is probably going a little stir crazy and is lacking motivation. Although break is so near, do not give up on your schoolwork yet, my friends! Power through these next few days and get your tests and papers done! To help motivate you to have a good week, I have a happy song to share.
This song is “Good Day” by Nappy Roots. Nappy Roots is an American alternative rap group consisting of four people. The group started in Kentucky, and was the best selling hip hop group of 2002. The group has five albums: Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz, Wooden Leather, The Humdinger, The Pursuit of Nappyness, and Nappy Dot Org. Although all of these titles are clear winners, The Pursuit of Nappyness is my personal fave.
My friend Natalie sent this song to my friends as part of our Music Monday tradition we did in high school, so this is the only Nappy Roots song I have ever heard. Since I have only ever heard this one song, I cannot attest for the rest of their work, but this song is really happy and makes me feel good about life. Plus it sounds like a goofy, old school hip-hop song, and nothing is better than that. Have a wonderful week, good luck on schoolwork, and thanks for reading
Happy Wednesday to all! Today is a glorious day because as of 8:48 this morning, I finished all of my finals! Yippie skippieeee!!! I only had one written exam for my anthropology class, and that was this morning. Other than that, I had many papers, a presentation, and art projects. The bulk of my finals work was due last week, so this week was not too stressful. Either way, I am very happy to be officially done for the semester!
I was originally supposed to stay until Saturday and dance at the Crossroads Classic basketball game with the rest of the dance team, but unfortunately we are no longer performing. I am going home on Friday now, so I suppose it will be nice to get home a little earlier than I expected. Speaking of nice things, I have some wonderful YouTube videos to share with you.
As you can probably tell from some of my other posts, I love YouTube. I recently started watching some videos by The Fine Brothers and they are all hilarious. They do a lot of different stuff on YouTube from full on television production-type videos to more simple, weekly videos. I have been watching their React series of videos in which they show kids, teens, or elders a video clip of some sort and then ask them questions about it. It might not sound too entertaining, but it is indeed hilarious! I have put some of my favorite videos down below. Good luck with the rest of finals, have a wonderful week, and thanks for reading
