Going Griswold Here

Hi Everyone.
I've been meaning to post here for awhile now except I noticed I was typing in the wrong username & password, until I looked at my password list. I've had an eventful couple of weeks starting with the person I live with, that the next time I open her bedroom door to tell her something she'll give me 30 days notice. The phone rang. I knocked on her door when she answered from inside, I automatically opened it. I can't move now as my brother & his wife are teachers busy with school let alone marking exams, but I am considering moving out of this house called hell hopefully closer to all of my appointments.

The other thing that's driving me crazy is constant noise, on the bus, children, loud hip hop music. I feel like strangling the person with their own headphones. I find some of the bus drivers are pretty reckless speeding. I almost wanna puke on the bus or start a petition for seatbelts. I'm getting ready to go postal here John Wick style with people who constantly ask me for money or cigarettes. My patience is getting thinner by the day living in Edmonton. The malls are too damn busy for my liking, I'm ready to push people aside. I'm also thinking of buying earmuffs to go along with wearing earplugs.

Hi Black dog. I know what you mean about noise pollution. Sometimes things are so loud, I can't wait to get home to the quiet. And my home, being a sanctuary, "should" not be violated with people cutting down trees with chain saws.

I have to accept these noises. In the land of the living there is noise. In the land of the dead there is quiet. That's what my 90 year old Aunt told me. But I'm hyper sensitive to noises from a noisy hospital incarceration years ago.

Ear muffs and earplugs work pretty good. I use them at night to block out the trains. :)
