i used to put tin foil on my windows when light bothered me.
but my cat LOVES to sit in her window & look out at the parking lot, smell the aromas, feel the breeze. i don't want to shut the window.
it's the theater across the lot who got them put in. now, the rest of the block? idk, there are a few buildings for lease.
i put a bookcase between my bed & the window & curl into the corner to read at night, with a small light. that's not right. & i live on the first floor.
my full name is on the directory outside, i asked for my first initial only, but was told to stay out of it. most the tenants are women living alone.
one guy saw my name on it & was yelling it at 2am, drunk. i was so embarressed, cos idk him! all i did was give him a light for his cig.
it makes me not want to talk to strangers. maybe good advice, but i'll never make new friends.
