I’ve recently realized that I always have earphones on when I’m in my apartment, so I thought a bit about why that is.
I tend to stay up really late sometimes either studying or doing… stuff. Late at night, the silence gets pretty suffocating so I always listen to music, downloaded TV episodes/ movies, Youtube or everything at once… As a result, I’ve developed a habit of always wearing earphones regardless of whether I’m listening to anything.
Really, I listen to stuff to so I don’t feel too weird alone at 3 am. Lately I have been “watching” a lot of TV programs on my computer. In fact, I don’t actually watch anything. The plots in general are easy follow without having to watch them… sort of like listening to radio dramas I guess. Therefore, I am able to browse sites, play games (minesweeper…), fool around with Photoshop… etc. Multitasking saves precious time that could be wasted elsewhere.
To help kill the lifeless silence, I also talk to my figures on my desk.
