Bushwick Bill ain’t got nothing on me

I have been out of commission for the last ten days fussing with my eye problems. Today for the first time, I was able to get both contact lenses in without any huge problems. Well, so far. We’ll see how it goes throughout the day.

I have done more research on eye infections and homeopathic remedies in the last week than ever before. I can tell you all about chamomile eye wash and saline solutions.

I hope this never happens again.

Are you able to read with music playing in the background?

I’ve recently discovered that I am unable to have any music playing when I’m attempting to read something for understanding.

I was trying to read something for MCO 435, and my concentration kept being broken by the music playing in my background.

I can have all kinds of music playing when I’m writing. In fact, I have to have music playing when I’m writing.

Attempting to have music playing while reading something has me going back over what I just read several times.

Is it just me, or do other people suffer from this affliction as well?

Let me know in the comments. I need someone to cosign this so that I don’t think I’m crazy.

I make myself leave the house when it’s time to get work done, because I get next to nothing accomplished when I sit in my house all day. I need to be away from my household distractions and in the company of other people trying to get shit done.

My normal work space is the local Starbucks, and although the one on Crenshaw and Coliseum is within walking distance of my house, I prefer to go to the new one near USC, because it’s a lot more clean, quiet and structured.

The Crenshaw Starbucks is like a daytime club; the Expo/Fig Starbucks is like a library that allows us to have our food and drinks and occasionally plays good music.

Anyway, with all my Starbucks visits and Starbucks gift cards, I managed to move myself up to the Green level in Starbucks rewards which means that all of my refills while I am in the shop are free.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is #Winning
