Is it strange that I don't only get songs stuck in my head, but other noises as well?
It probably is. I mean, you don't hear people going around saying, "Ah, I got that sound stuck in my head. Why can't I get the sound of snapping out of my head? Brain, stop thinking about snapping noises. Think about other noises." Unless if they do and they just don't voice it aloud.
Welp, I just went on a tangent.
Anywho, I'm interested in why I find certain sounds so much more appealing than others. I believe it's because of the associations I've made with certain sounds.
For instance, I have found that the sound of clacking keys makes me a little nervous at the most random of times. A reason as to why that may be is that I often take out my angers, frustrations, and stress on my writing (or should I say typing?) and on my friends (I rant quite a lot).
Other times, I find the sound of typing comforting. Perhaps it's because I type most of my pieces out instead of writing them down, so my thoughts and emotions are tied to my environment during these times of writing/typing.
Whenever I hear a sound that I like, I usually store it away in my brain and replay it (until I get sick of the sound, but by that point, I wouldn't be able to rid myself of it). I must have sounded crazy when I said that, but it's true. I've done this with the ringing of bells, the A string on my violin, and the crinkling of wrapping paper.
I feel like if I talk about this more, I'm going to sound even more insane.
Do you guys do this too? Or am I just a crazy child? (I'm probably crazy, haha.)
