I notice my tolerance for noise has declined these past two months.

Whenever I need to go to a shopping centre, I get really annoyed by cars passing by. The drivers all seem in a rush that doesn’t fit the slow life I lead indoors.

Whenever one of my house mates drops something on the floor, my ears hurt.

I hate my fridge for making lots of noise while Netflixing. And above all I hate the extractor hood for making it impossible to listen to music while cooking dinner.

Slow and boring life makes me less tolerant to the existence of other people and home appliances. That is not a good thing.
