Silence is the best

It keeps you focused so you don't drift off

If I had that at my house I would love it :D

I honestly don't understand how people listen to music while they work though :confused:
I actually get more distracted in silence. I get really bored and just yeah.. curse you short attention span :cry:

It depends on the situation for me. If I'm doing homework or assignments (that don't require too much writing), I'll listen to music with lyrics.
If I'm writing an essay I may do that in silence because I really, really...REALLY need to think and figure out how to word things and stuff.
If I'm studying, I dunno, I listen to music without lyrics like awesome soundtracks and stuff (right now i'm listening to the Skyrim soundtrack xD) . I feel awkward in silence. Music is my life :L I listen to it ALL the time :') It helps me concentrate better :L

does anyone else have the inability to study or do homework/assignments in silence or is that just me?
I try to study in silence but i always end up putting music on. What makes it worse is that I'm listening to heavy bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Slayer. Very hard to retain info while listening to metal music :p

NEVER say you are dumb because you are not!
This. Very wise words. Study will get you places, but a little bit of belief in youself will get you a whole lot further. In the words of good old harry potter: "working hard is important, but there's something that matters even more - believing in yourself" :)

i still do shit...must be because I'm dumb.
In life, uni and school in general, you will hit obstacles. You just get back up and go on.

Yeah. Shit happens, but it makes you a stronger and resilient person.

(Sorry if I sound condescending , but yeah, I know this from experience)


I failed my first uni exams and I got myself back up and got 3 D's the next semester.
