Answer: Wearing headphones is my way of hiding from the world. I listen to a podcast, music, and even the radio, if I can stand the pointless adverts. Most of the time though, there is just silence. On a cold windy day like today all I wanted on my walk to work, were my own thoughts. The headphones block the sound of suburbia, leaving me in my own private bubble. Today though, the whistling noise of the north wind has forced melancholy into my brain, and now it’s hard to clear.
