Entry 21: The Worst Neighbour

2 Mins read

I’m a very easy-going person. Very few things get to me.

Very few.

But lately, I’ve been struggling to…

You know what? Let me just tell you the whole story. It’s more like a rant, actually.

Have you ever had a safe place? Somewhere you go or something you do to let out steam and ease stress? 

Well, I do. 

For me, it’s music. 

Everyday when I get back from work, I turn my bluetooth on, connect to my speakers and go to my safe place while I shower and get dinner ready.

At least that was my life, until last week.

A new person moved into the apartment next door, and I wish that didn’t happen. Tolu, my new neighbour, has desecrated my safe space, and I don’t find it funny at all.

One day, I got home and noticed that the once dusty door across the hall had been cleaned, and the lock had been changed. I didn’t make much of it until a few days ago.

Since then, every single time I get home and turn my music on, I hear Tolu’s voice singing out loud, along to my music. I don’t have that much of a problem with it, as long as Tolu sings on a key that exists. But nooooo…

Sigh, I don’t know what to do. Now I can’t play my music because Tolu would start to sing along. I have to sit in silence or plug my earphones in. It seems like such a small thing, but I was really looking forward to my safe space all today until Tolu happened.

I would use earphones, but it’s not the same. I love it when I can almost feel the sound waves move across the room and fill the air. It’s what makes it so precious. Ugh. I have the worst neighbour.

This is such a random story with no real point, but what is a diary for anyway?

I honestly just came here to rant because I don’t know what to do. Should I go over and let Tolu know to stop singing along? Or maybe I should find unpopular songs that Tolu would not know 🤔 Hmm, please what do you guys think? Send help 😩

Ugh, I’m just going to sleep. I’m too tired for this.

Hmmm or, maybe I’d just call T. If there’s anybody that would know what to do, it’s T.

Talk tomorrow.
