yeah absolutely...it's quite ridiculous really but i hate cleaning with anyone in the house. i like to send everyone away and turn up some super loud house music and get into the zone...cleaning and redecorating...it's fun sometimes if you do it that way...otherwise...it's maddeningly boring and i take a million breaks so as to not go completely loco.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
Depends on how much focus I need and how extroverted the job is. I tried studying with music, lol does NOT work for me. If I'm reading the stuff out loud, that obviously gets in the way. If I'm trying to study in 'silence', my mind automatically favors the extroverted, so I end up singing along to the music rather than studying.
Chimera of Filth
A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
Clings to me as a sick fixture
My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
Music doesn't help me for very long. But audiobooks are beautiful, wonderful sanity saving things.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Music with exercise is incredible and really boosts the quality / quantity of my working out (just like suchirony said above). However, studying with it is difficult for me. Increasingly so as I get older.
