confessions of an eavesdropper

I have to admit, I listen in on other people's conversations. 

This is quite bad for me currently, considering I'm in the middle of a lovely little coffee shop, mildly caffeinated, trying to write a paper (my first of the semester I might add), and my ipod is out of battery.

Sometimes I feel guilty for being a typical product of my generation for wanting to just plug myself into my own personal jukebox and cut myself off from contact with other people. However, when I am trying to be productive it is really what is best, because it prevents me from being totally distracted by the people around me and their conversations. Not to mention, other people probably don't like being listened too...
