It's strange what music does to people. Some see it as a means of personal expression; some see it as a runner for telling others how they feel. Some use it to illicit some form of a reaction (Poe would be proud). Some, like me, use it as a means to motivate. Slow music proves distracting. Fast music that is rhythmically interesting and repetitive gets me through my work. It brings me to a strangely calm place where I know what happens next and next comes soon. Unlike with time. But that uncertainty is exciting.
