As such, I like to write blog posts reminding my future self of things like bacon.
This time I'm telling my future self two things:
- Never live below/above/near a bar
- Never live at/below street level
The bar noise used to drive me nuts but I have sort of gotten used to it. The things that I can't stand are the people who get queued up waiting to get into the bar and stand by/outside my window. Then, there are the people who stand outside my window smoking and having inane conversations.
It gets worse though. Because I'm at street level I can hear people talking when they walk by. I can hear stupid drivers honking their horns. I can hear cars idling at the red light. I can hear obnoxious motorcycles rumble by. Traffic noise is the worst.
I need 26th floor apartment.
Someone should write a book on how to be an adult. But maybe these things only affect me because I'm an introvert2. The Internet has been trying to convince me that introverts function better with
