I have to say through this blogging experience, I have changed

many writing habits. I have learned a lot about myself, which I will

get into in another post that I will be doing today since i find

myself on the catch up carrousel again. I have come to enjoy that

damn ride. But I will let you in on Two major changes that came with

this blogging challenge:


1. I no longer use loose leaf paper for writing the whole thing out

like I was in the beginning. I had to have a rough draft written

out before I even sat down at the laptop. I still use loose leaf

paper but now it's just to write down things that fly through my

head or something that might help make the next posting. I use it

to get everything sketched out first. It's been weird finally

trusting my brain and fingers to work as a unit. I kinda like this



2. I am now addicted to Pandora playing, whatever I’m in the mood

for, while tapping away at the keys of the laptop. It helps drown

out everything around me, like my hubby playing COD or the kids

fighting. Pandora helped fuel the a 3 hour blogging experience

about what we would do if we won the lottery. Music helps focus me.

Music has always been a focusing agent for me. Actually to be

honest I have to have music playing when I’m clean, cooking or

anything that has to deal with me concentrating on one thing at a

time. It should scatter thooughts everywhere but instead it

actually shuts everything else in my brain except the music and my

focused thoughts. I love it.


Does any one else use music as a helping tool for studying, working,

clean, cooking, etc?


Well for the last 2 days anytime I have sat down to the laptop to

either post or play my games on Facebook, I have put on Pandora

first. I have been taking a trip through the top pop songs of 2013.

So since Pandora rocked the 80's for me, I wasn't surprised that

they hit me with some great music. I thought I'd let you in on what

Pandora thought was 50 top pop songs of 2013.

past 2 days. No skipping!!!
