Do you mind noise?
Yes, I do because I’m a very sensitive person. I hate the continuous barking of dogs in our neighborhood as they’re too distracting. I cannot concentrate on my work, especially since I’m working from home these days. Although I use acoustic foams to deaden (to make the noise less intense) the noise, I still get distracted by it. It irritates me, honestly.
Well, that depends on the types of noise. I don’t mind if the noise is bearable (tolerable). However, if the noise is too loud or irritating, that’s when I really mind. I either tell the person who causes that noise as he might not be aware that it’s distracting or I simply leave the place.
Do you think there’s too much noise in today’s world?
I think there is but only in big cities. Industrial noise such as vehicles, construction, and machinery are what we commonly hear if we’re living or working in big cities. Well, it takes some time for one to get used to (to be accustomed; to be familiar with) those types of noise, especially if they come from the countryside.
Yes, however, some people are so distracted (having their thoughts or attention drawn away) in their everyday lives that they fail to notice how noisier the place is, especially the city. I believe some people are so focused on their work or their personal issues that they become insensitive to the noise around them. It’s the least of their worries (a problem that is less of a concern than another one).
What type of noise do you come across in your daily life?
Industrial noise, of course, as I’m living in the city, and the barking of two dogs of my neighbor. Actually, I’m going to transfer to another apartment because I can no longer take the noise that those two dogs make during the night. It irritates (annoys) me, especially when I’m about to hit the sack (go to bed).
Both low-frequency noise and high-frequency noise. Well, that includes road vehicles, air-conditioning units, sirens wailing, birds chirping, and fans humming. I’m used to all of these that they don’t annoy me as hearing these has become a part of my everyday life.
Are there any sounds that you like?
I love the sounds of musical instruments such as the sounds that a guitar, piano, saxophone, and violin produce. Listening to them makes me feel at ease (relaxed). You know what, I even listen to instrumentals on Spotify whenever I go to bed and I just set a timer for an hour so it stops automatically.
Of course, I love the chirping of the birds in the early morning. I enjoy the rain that patters (to make a rapid succession of light tapping sounds) on the roof while lying in bed or sipping a cup of coffee. Also, I love the sound that crickets make in the middle of the night. All those sounds make me feel relaxed.
