Homework stinks! After a grueling day at school traumatized by the tsunami of information that has just overflowed the brain, teens are now expected to come home and use all of the information they have just ingested, spit it back out, and continue to do more work at home, rightfully establishing its common title -- "homework."
The one thing that relieves me from the stress of homework is to accompany my tasks with pop or country music. Usually, when I am working on calculus or science while listening to music, I become more relaxed and focused.
Also, homework requires hours of strenuous focus and attention every night, and if I listen to music while I'm working, the time seems to go by much faster. There is nothing like getting swept up in the beat of Flo Rida's "Club Can't Handle Me" or Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" while doing some complex math problems.
