Comment Loud Fan (Score 1) 561

All you need is competing noise. Get a large fan and turn it up, most of the outside noises will be drowned out.

Also, a website like http://rainfor.me/ helps me a lot when I find myself wandering off into my thoughts.

If you listen to music and the voices are too distracting, just listen to good movie scores, classical soundtracks, or something orchestra based like http://open.spotify.com/user/1225153336/playlist/174h1jI74KgCR30U60E5Wt or http://open.spotify.com/user/1225153336/playlist/0zfVN0HOmVKz5CVDNWigXg. I find when I'm programming or studying, having complete silence is great. When I can't achieve that, then I need background white noise and voiceless music.

Just some thoughts based on what I've learned since attending College.

4 years in the Air Force after high school provided me with an associates, an awesome resume bonus, and 4 years of schooling where I'm paid about 1000 a month to attend with full tuition and a books stipend.

When all is said and done I'll have spent 7 years being paid to get my bachelors but man it's been a lot of fun.
