The Ultimate Playlist: Actuarial Studies edition

With finals approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to write one last blog post for ASSOC’s 2015 blog. Here’s a list of songs that describe a typical year of an Actuarial student. Hopefully you can relate!

  • Only Girl by Rihanna – When you look around your lecture or tutorial room

  • Coffee by Miguel – To get you through the mornings and those 9am MATH133 lectures…

  • Started From the Bottom by Drake – To describe your permutations and combinations abilities in first year before STAT171 and ACST212

  • Confessions by Usher – When you think about that time you accidently called your maths tutor “dad”.

  • Gives You Hell by The All-American Rejects – When you write something stupid and fall victim to the notorious negative marking

  • The Crying Game by Nicki Minaj – When it’s 4am on the day of the STAT272 final and you still haven’t written your cheat sheet

  • Blank Space by Taylor Swift – Your answers for the ACST212 Paper 2 final

  • 22 by Taylor Swift – To (probably) describe my raw marks for STAT272

  • Story of My Life by One Direction – When you get a 49, 64, 74, or 84

  • Do It Again by Pia Mia ft. Chris Brown and Tyga – When you scrape by and make it through another semester

  • Wake Me Up by Avicii – After finals because sleep deprivation destroyed you

  • Drinking From the Bottle by Calvin Harris – When all the third years try to get you munted

  • Drunk by Ed Sheeran – ASSOC Camp. End of story.

  • I Need A Doctor by Dr. Dre ft. Eminem and Skylar Grey – Having those post-camp hangovers. Also applies to post-finals because you’re left mentally traumatised.

  • Hell of a Night by Dustin Lynch – Every night before an assignment is due. Or a test. Or an exam.

  • Drag Me Down by One Direction – Any ACST unit tbh

  • Don’t Judge Me by Chris Brown - When you tell people about your GPA.

  • Best Thing I Never Had by Beyoncé – Whenever I think about a 4.0 GPA

  • Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus – Your very first STAT271 test.

  • 99 Problems by Jay-Z – When you have a group assignment with non-Actuarial students.

  • How to Save a Life by The Fray – When you get assignment answers from the smart kid.

  • Pressure by Paramore – When you find out there are GPA requirements for ACST202 and ACST255. And you can’t forget about those credit exemptions!

  • Can We Dance by The Vamps – On JASS Ball night

  • Thnks Fr Th Mmrs by Fall Out Boy – When you think about all the good times you had with ASSOC :)

  • Heart Attack by Trey Songz – When you realize exams start in less than a month and you haven’t read any lecture notes past Week 3.

  • All the Small Things by Blink-182 – Remember to use formal notation and define symbols when necessary!

  • Know Yourself by Drake – Whenever you doubt yourself, remember what you are capable of!

I hope you have all enjoyed reading this blog as much as I have enjoyed writing it!
