✓✓ Read Receipts: Silence is Golden

I am entirely musically talentless. Besides the mandatory classes at school, and even during them, I never put any effort in. My life is graphic: visual and textual. Yet my life isn't silent, from the moment I wake up, I'm listening to something - the inane chatter of cafés, drunken slurring, even the hushed silence of the British Library isn't entirely silent, and when I work at home I always have the radio on. The radio saves me having to think too much about what I want to hear, instead I can relax and focus solely on the act of listening. Of course, there are days I appreciate the silence of the early morning, until it's shattered by the clatter of the local mechanics.
