The Problem With the Plan

The major problem with my plan to put on my headphones and write is that listening to music on headphones, even at low levels, affects my hearing negatively, something which I had already learned once but forgotten. After just a few days of headphone use, I started to feel like I couldn’t hear conversation. Whole words went unheard, and I couldn’t distinguish between words with similar sounds, like “bob” and “pop.” Every time anyone spoke to me, it seemed like my answer was always “What?”

I have to believe that my hearing will recover in time, but this problem definitely puts the kibosh on the headphones plan. I will have to get by on headphones with no music, or music with no headphones, or find some other way to block out the world when I’m writing.
