Both! I can be working quietly with good music or an interesting podcast and I can be quietly working in complete silence, I guess it depends on my mood.

Lol don’t judge me…I have Disney movies playing or I love Lucy. Keeps a happy, light and nostalgic atmosphere. The key is it being something that I’ve already seen so it doesn’t take me away

I am always listening to music, it incredibly helps me to stay focused. When I don't listen to music I feel like I'm overloaded with thoughts.

I always say “silence is deafening “ lol that’s why

I have a hard time listening to music or listening to anything else while I work. I always have to be in silence.

I have been approached by 3 separate HR people at a startup company to interview for a position. I already have a fulltime job that pays well and I only started 6 months ago too. Anyways, the pay was intriguing and the job was a high level scientific advisor so I did interviews. At the last interview, at the end I was told the job was for management but I prepared for a different kind of interview. I am waiting for an offer or rejection letter. I feel peeved that they wasted my time. Red flags?

I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!
