Homework; Fr. Stan Fortuna at Catholic Underground

No long post tonight since I am in a homework nightmare. Try as I might, I cannot focus on my readings thus I can't finish this darn homework or take the quizzes. This also means that I am very unlikely to go see Fr. Stan Fortuna at Catholic Underground L.A. tomorrow night. Since almost everything is due tomorrow night, it's going to take a miracle for me to finish on time. *sigh*

Anyway, just stopped by to let y'all know about Fr. Stan's gig at Catholic Underground tomorrow night. Starts at 8 p.m., if I'm not mistaken. Hope those of you who get to go have a great time. :D

Back to the beating my poor brain is getting. *groan* By the way, any tips y'all can give me are greatly appreciated. I have tried listening to music but it hasn't helped. Being completely silent will only drive me bonkers. I can't go out in the rain (and with my pain it's impossible) so any outdoor related tips are out. Thanks in advance!

Hi -
I always find starting fresh to be helpful. I write down a specific plan of attack and then take a 15 minute break before I get started. This usually includes setting up in a different room and having everything I need organized around me. I also get a nice cup of tea and something sweet to eat and get started. It is very satisfying to cross things off.

Good Luck!

My homework trick is polyphony on Pandora. I made a station featuring Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and play that in the background. I find polyphony to be just distracting enough to save me from that song that's running through my head and my neighbor's answering machine peeing every three minutes, but not distracting enough to cause me to listen with a musician's ear. I just let the ethereal beauty of the overlapping parts wash over me. Besides, that way my ears as well as my heart are offering my schoolwork to Our Lord!

Thank you both for your suggestions. I've done both and they've helped. :D
