I am unable to create. I was awoken at 12:30am. There is a person who plays their phone so loud, it can be heard three blocks away. What it is is an ebook that is being played. An irritating electronic voice played so loud it could be heard three blocks and away and it was right next to my door at 12:30am when I had been dead asleep. When I was jolted awake, I felt like I had to vomit. I was so terrorized I couldn’t fall back asleep until three. These acts of terrorism have been happening more and more frequently.
When I listen to an audiobook, or television for that matter, I always use headphones. I figure no one else wants to listen to what I’m listening to.
I’m not sure what to do with these moments of terror. Of being forced into listening to something I don’t want to listen to, or being awoken by them.
