/lit/ any tips for reading/concentrating in loud areas?

Since moving into the city center close to my university, I can't for the life of me concentrate enough to read with constant traffic, car horns, trams, sirens, drunk people, etc.
>>
ear plugs, headphones with white noise, noise canceling headphone
>>
OP I had this same problem and I had to switch colleges. Most people literally don't notice it, some enjoy it. Your grades are going to slip and your brain will always subconsciously associate loud noises with reading, whereas it should associate silence with reading.
>>
Put on earphones and listen to some Beethoven.

top fucking pleb

>not being able to multitask

Really though, it's just to block out the outside noise. If someone hasn't already appreciated Beethoven before using it as background noise, then they should kill themselves.

Not him and Ludwig is my favourite composer, but that's just the wrong pick for reading man. Plenty of options, but not him.

multitasking is a fucking myth when it comes to appreciating complex art like good music (beethoven) or legitimate literature

im super autistic about beethoven and i would never use it as "background noise", it should command full attention.

Also the noise you / he is avoiding is like low rumbling engine noise, which is death to anybody of a genius and artistic temperament like myself / himself.

yes, learn the buddhist meditations about concentration (samatha). you can read anywhere afterwards.
>>
>>7623757
That sounded way better inside your head.
>>
>>7623766
Which is why Buddhists live in isolated, silent rural retreats right?
>>
>>7623770
no, they live in such places because they are not awaken and it is hard for beginners to be good at concentration in busy places.
>>
earphones and listen to some ambient music. stop being a retard, op. how did you not know this?
