writings about
walking around
,
the prom
,
and
moving forward
.
so i was sitting here, at work, working and stuff
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.
only,
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.
how odd.
it's just so..... odd.
i had to share.
