An Absence of Sound and Abundance of Thought

There's a reason I always have the radio running.

Whether I'm cramming for a final, cleaning my room, or drawing, I'm listening to some sort of noise: music, podcasts, audiobooks.

It drives my family up a wall.

They yell at me, "turn off the music!" and "why must you always be listening to something?"

Well, I guess it's because

the second that sound is removed, I am unable to focus.

I'd been told it hinders my productivity to add these distractions, but I've wired myself to multitask--to process two or more things at a time. I can't function otherwise because

My thoughts take over: the worst distraction.

And that is the most awful experience.
