- How Music Affects My Productivity- They Don't get Along
Hey, those are two different questions...
I can get work done if music WITHOUT lyrics is playing QUIETLY. Even then, I don't work very efficiently or effectively. I can read easy stuff or write but as soon as the difficulty level increases, I'm done for. This is illustrated by the fact that I blew up when I was hacking my way through quadratics and my brother decided it would be 'funny' to put on SpongeBob music.
I cannot practice clarinet at all if there is any sound. I was preparing for a solo once, and my dad kept trying to get me to play along with a recording. Granted, it was early spring, night, I was at my brother's baseball practice, the boys kept throwing stuff at me...but it wasn't going well at all. I would finally get the hang of the song and then it would switch to the improv... Don't even get me started on the radio...
- If I Had a Magic Wand Then There Would be Magic Peanut Butter on Capitol Hill.
I would use it to conjure up the 150,000 NomNom cookies so we could buy a permit for the pic of BWR. Then I would summon ice cream and regular cookies. And a bunny.
Is this magic wand capable of humanitarian work? If it was, then I would use it to make it rain in all the drought ridden places. The wand would cart the excess water away from where it had flooded, purify it, and then make it rain in Africa. And Texas. And all the other places where it doesn't rain much and there are horrible droughts.
And then the wand would make it rain peanut butter on Capitol Hill. I don't know why. Not that much peanut butter, but enough that there would be a light coating. But it would be magic peanut butter, and would repel itself away from people with nut allergies.
Then the wand would make me a turkey and avocado sandwich. Finally, it would go poof and turn into blueberries.
- Prompt of the day
Wordpress peeps- I signed up for plinky, which provides writing prompts. I don't like prompts, but the idea is cute. So, let's see if this works...
Look at me. No, seriously, look at me. STOP GIGGLING! I'M BEING SERIOUS!
What? You are, too?
Okay, so obviously I am not the greatest authority figure. I'm strong willed, and up front, but I don't like being in charge all the time.
That's not to say I don't make good eye contact. I make great eye contact...except my mind is always somewhere else. Which is okay when my dad is ranting about computers. Not so great in school.
Wandering eyes and cemented minds or vice versa? Which one is you?
