and it gradually occured to me that i was singing
and then, once that awareness was in place,
it suddenly occured to me that i often sing at work.
and it's not something i ever really took notice of before.
i tend to sing when i'm working on something hard,
on some problem that i have to decipher and/or code around.
i'm attempting to sing now, but i can't;
i can't sing and write prose at the same time.
the singing is just too distracting to my thought process.
and yet, i sing when i'm writing code,
particularly during those times when i'm working on something so hard that the littlest distraction might derail me.
i suppose i do it as a way of focusing,
a way of excluding everything sensory
so that i can concentrate inward.
i sing along to the radio.
so there goes that theory.
what's more, my singing sounds better when i'm coding
then when i'm attempting to simply sing.
it's just so..... odd.
i had to share.
