Wow, no wonder my brain was fried for the two years that I lived in noisy environments!

I've been spending the last 4-5 months in mostly suburban areas, and the last month almost exclusively so. Today I went over to my storage unit, which is right next to a freeway. It was so damn NOISY!!! Even with my new ceiling and insulation-- the noise came in through the vents and it was loud. After about 5-6 hours, I couldn't think, and my ears were ringing. All I wanted to do was to get out of there ASAP.

Now I'm back down in a rural area... aaah, peace and quiet at last. What a relief; it feels so good, like when someone finally stops hitting you over the head with a hammer.

I hate noise, especially machine noise (cars, trucks, traffic, busses, lawnmowers, weedwhackers, chainsaws, air compressors, jackhammers, leafblowers, etc.). It's lovely to be somewhere the only noise is the surf pounding against the beach, in the distance.
