The other day they were doing some construction in the downstairs unit. I was up here trying to write a post. Bang bang. Bark bark. Bang bang. Bark bark. It sounded like a conversation between construction tools and an angry dog. I think it was.
So, anyways, I couldn't concentrate. I tried, but it was no good. I set the post aside and didn't get back to it until yesterday. I couldn't work through the noise.
I often can't work through the noise in my own head either. "That's a stupid idea." "No one's going to get it." "What makes you think you can do this?" I try to argue back. "Shut up!!!"
The best idea is to just ignore it. I try and sometimes I'm successful.
