I cannot either. AT all.
TV grates on my nerves as background noise. Music however, I can work to. I listened to music when I studied, and now will listen to it as I work. I find I can somehow concentrate better, both for reviewing and writing when music is on. BUT! It has to music of my choosing.
I have to read in peace and quiet.
Ya, it is probably too distracting for me as well.
