    I Need My Silence!

    I can't focus on anything when there's any form of noise. I mean, I can listen to the radio when I'm driving or whatever, but like when I'm doing homework or studying, I have to have COMPLETE SILENCE. Sometimes people will be talking, and I say that it's bothering me, so they...

    Do Yourself A Favor...

    ...and promise yourself that you'll never live in a multiple-family house! ESPECIALLY if you're on the first floor! It's SO horrible when your neighbors' kitchen is DIRECTLY above your bedroom! Which means hardwood floors. This house is paper thin and i hate it...

    Yeahh.. So... Don't Make Noise.

    I don't like a lot of noise. (Note: noise does not equal music.) A lot of noise makes me feel nervous... and then I lash out. Also, loud noises. Like the TV. Sometimes I simply can't stand the TV and I have to turn it off, even if someone is watching it, because I feel like I'll...

    Very Sensitive

    I think this may be a weird story becuase there are times where I need noises to go on. A fan example, is a good noise that helps me concentrate. I can't sleep silently at night. I need either music, the TV, or the fan/AC to run. As long as it's pleasant and soothing sounds, I'm...

    By people really. Like I know

    that sounds bad, but sometimes I just really don't want to talk or be talked to. I don't want to be bothered or disturbed. And when people talk continuously even though they aren't getting a response, I don't even know. But I was in the car on my way home from school and my nana...

    Curious:

    I seem to be annoyed or irritated by really abrupt sounds like something falling on a floor, a slamming door, clanging and especially telephones or loud text notifications. It makes me feel anxious and irritated simultaneously.
