When I saw the daily post today, I thought FINALLY something I can relate to and write about.
If you know me personally, you’ll know that little noises drive me absolutely insane. Some of which are: biting your nails, chewing with your mouth open, and continually opening and shutting your clicky wallet. I don’t know why that is but it has just always been one of my quirks.
It started off with me just being irritate by my mom but it has grew to anyone that is around me.
Most recently, it has been a noise that my heater makes. I live in a college dorm room so there is nothing that I can really do about it. The only thing that I have discovered is that when the heaters off, it stops making the noise. So now I suffer from the cold instead of the noise, which is great when it’s 5 degrees Fahrenheit outside. The most irritating thing about it is that it is right next to my desk. Being that it is the end of the semester and finals are just around the corner, you can probably sense my frustration. With each click I can hear what I’m supposed to be doing, how little time I have, how I don’t know what to do with my life, and the insanity continues. With all of this it builds infinitely more anxiety, that I frankly don’t need.
Do small noises bother anyone else? Does anyone have any techniques to deal with them?
