When it rains, it pours.

All of a sudden my equilibrium has been shaken. They installed blinding bright lights outside my apartment windows. The dog across the street who I would pet and was pretty much my only friend died. The lovely old lady down the street who would sit on her porch had a fire in her house, parts of it are charred and boarded up. I have been discombobulated, in just a few days it's a whole new world in the neighbourhood.

Have to learn to ride the wave rather than resist it.

I feel for you, especially with the blinding lights issue. People in this city just give zero shits about anyone else who lives around them.
I once lived in a house in East Van where they put up a monster house right beside us, the walls of which extended right to the property line, so there was less than 2 feet between the houses, then they put security lights on the outside walls which shone directly into my bedroom and lit it up like it was high noon. I had to cover the window with aluminum foil and was unable to open it at night as it was so bright.
The irony was that the houses were so close together that nobody could even walk between them with the fence there, so they didn't even need the security lights.

I've recently realized the one thing I thought I was really good at I'm actually terrible at. My belief in my other special skill has blown away because I am no good at that either. I mean for years I believed I was an undiscovered gold mine. Har! O ya plus my Doctor told me he'd be surprised if I didn't have cancer. So now I'm a dead man walking around trying hard not to think out loud

1. Blackout blinds (because people are rude & inconsiderate) 2. White noise machine (because people are rude & inconsiderate) 3. New dog friends (dogs are everywhere! So friendly! And unlike humans, not assholes!) 4. Hope (Just gotta ride this rough wave for now. This too shall pass. Things will get better. They will.)
