Playlist: Spring Day by BTS but You Have Allergies
New issue, new playlist. Here are some songs to help you get into that springtime mood with a potential reminder of your springtime allergies courtesy of BTS.
This playlist was made with the intention of emulating that springtime vibe, where you’re blasting “Spring Day” by BTS wherever you may be. Now, you may be one to just “Spring Day” on its own for X amount of hours (to each their own), but here are some songs alongside to help give off a soft, calming vibe. In other words, I hope this playlist gives off a “close your eyes my dear everything will be alright as you’re sitting on a hill reading a book against a tree” type of vibe. To bring in the calmness of things, I started off with UMI’s “Introspection Reimagined”, a live interpretation of “Introspection” with a more orchestral band feel to it. The playlist progresses from releasing your main character vibes, with Olivia Rodrigo’s “deja vu” to cruising down the city you live in with “Henny in the Hamptons” by Bren Joy. Of course, “Spring Day” by BTS is added to this playlist and ends off with Sam Rui’s “crew” giving off a moment of solitude in the air.

Overachiever Magazine was started by Rehana Paul in October of 2018 to give a platform to all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities.
Our name is poking fun at the stereotype that all Asians are overachievers, especially Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. It’s also in recognition of all of us who have had no choice but to be overachievers: managing societal expectations, family obligations, and educational opportunities, all while fighting the patriarchy.
We have grown since then, putting out bimonthly issues (we are contributor powered: apply to write for our next one!), and weekly reviews of culture, and news that is important to us.
You can find announcements, more news, and get to know our staff on social media: give us a follow, and learn how you can get involved today!
We do not claim to speak for all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. We are just here to give them a place to speak for themselves.
