    Silence Is Uncomfortable

    I hate silence because it is school. School is an old cemented building that is forever hounded by darkness. School lives in the shadow of grey. Lessons are too quiet sometimes for me to bear. I have to make up excuse to leave, which is not easy. I am always in the sick bay...

    it makes everything hard to focus on and it drives me insane. There are only a few times that silence is required for me to endure and that's mostly during on campus exams, even then I am fidgety and annoyed that there cant even be some kind of soft background music just to...

    Absence Of Life

    I hate it. First thing I do when I wake up is to turn on the TV and the radio. Likewise when I come back from work. Not because I care about what's on, but I need the noise. I can't do art without some background music and I can't concentrate when I do chores without something...
