    In a silent studying area, I shouldn't have to wear headphones and play music to drown out the noises of someone listening to a Disney princess movies (wearing earphones and drowning out every other noise no less) and eating loud enough that I can here it over my headphones and music 30ft away.

    If it's an actual designated study area, there aren't means to eliminate that noise?
    If it's starbucks, just leave.

    Let's see how many posts it takes to turn into an I Hate Trump/Dems/Red/Blue/Left/Right thread. I think we can do it in under 10.

    Verified silent study area. It was like my little silent corner at school until these two showed up.

    I don't know how people can study or write in silence. I need background music, but not just any music. Definintely not anything with lyrics. I've found that listening to "epic videogame music" to be productive and have recently been enjoying more relaxed, percussive string music by Luis Guerra from the Revisionist History Podcast by Malcom Gladwell.

    A bit of background noise helps for me, I grew up in a loud family so it’s not that hard. On the other hand, I can’t the noise of everything around at a high volume especially when I’m stressing over a test.

    I used to study in coffee shops on campus with my headphones in but no music. One time at a large communal table, I overheard two girls gossiping about this other chick who was apparently pretty um... friendly with the a couple of guys at a party and went "skiing" with them. Odd, because it was the summer and there was no snow around.

    That really sucks. I could never study in my school library or any kind of coffee shop. Majority of people use it as a social thing. So annoying. Hopefully Santa brings you some noise cancelling headphones, changes life!

    Well Santa is broke, Mrs Claus told me to go fk myself, and their kids are all broke.

    I can handle music I just have to listen a radio station a rotation that doesn’t get me to excited.

    Shop around, you might be surprised at the cost of some bluetooth noise cancelling headphones. You can use the noise cancel + music simultaneously. Doesn't have to be Bose, but would probably help.

    I thought the same thing but I think she was talking about using the two men as ski poles if you get what I mean. The old two handed workout.

    Well when your skiing you have to squat down and stick your butt a bit out right? That’s just my imagination.

    I just know the term "skiing" refers to either not cold snow or using two "ski poles" at once. However you might be on to something new.
