It's always bothered me.

From babyhood till now, I've been very sensitive to noises. My mom says that when I was about 18 months old, she was playing with me on the front yard. Then the neighbors started mowing their yard; I was so bothered that I toddled inside, shut the door and locked it for good measure. Yeah. Dad enjoyed that urgent rush home from work to unlock the door so mom could come back inside to me!

I can hear the tick tock of a wrist watch and it drives me nuts.

I hate ceiling fans, or any fans really.

Gum smacking? People yelling? Babies crying? Its.all.too.much.

I know I'm a major introvert and crave my alone time. But I think for me, this stage of my life I just tend to get overwhelmed easily. I can't handle a lot and I've been trying to figure out why its so hard for me.

I think I'm just so drained from constantly talking with people for 9 hours a day. I'm so done and over done even.

So I've been trying to purposefully limit the noises in my life. Anything that is making me stress or get overwhelmed..out it goes. I took off twitter from my phone. Its nice.

I think some of us are made for a simple life.  I crave that. I'm seeking that.
