music and midterms and cleaning. Oh My!

I have this sorta opposite circadian rhythem on a weekly basis fom the rest of society. I have no issue with going out till 3 on a weekday (if theres a good reason) but I usually spend one weekend night home studyign because its a good uninterupted break of time and I can work until tired instead of getting edgy as my time constraint draws near.
I also have this thing where I study to REALLY LOUD music (with no words. although, I like writing to angy rap music or the faint.). Its all about white noise. I can usually hear everything everywhere and I get really distacted by it if I can single it out. Consequently a library is the worst placefor me to study because I here every page turn. As opposed to a concert parking lot, which for me is the best place to study.*
So in the summer, its Phish, and in the winter its Lake Trout. I always feel like I should tell lake trout because since their music sounds like dirty angry scary baltimore hedonism, its probably the last thing they would expect. But then I would seem deranged. And considering Ive been to 20 shows of a band that had about that many songs, I probably am.
Then when I get tired of studying, I usually have to futz around for a few hours to slow down my brain. Thats when I have my late night secret private music. Usually J.J. Cale or Steely Dan.** Cake is for cooking.
*or in the car if its quizzable. Thats how I studied vocab for the GRE. "Your tour shoes are *refulgent*. Once I quizzed chrissy on japanese. Which was really dumb, because i couldnt read it. I think she knew it anyways.
