The day of destiny is approaching, my friends–on Monday, I’ll take my oral exams. We’ll finally see whether all the studying I’ve done over this semester has paid off! As I go over my reading lists one last time, I’ve been listening to a lot of music to pump me up. Here it is:
Guyver (2005): Warrior’s Heart
Genesis Survivor Gaiarth: Zero
The Parasyte OST:
Ys VI: Release of the Far West Ocean:
This is the kind of stuff that keeps my spirits up and encourages me to charge forwards in burning through my reading list, though I guess the Parasyte OST also has a lot of ‘easy listening’ type music as well, for when I just want to relax with my books 😀 But yeah, I’ve been listening to those songs a LOT over the past week. And on that note, I think I can show you guys what I’ve been reading for the past week! Here are my reading lists…
