January 3, 2017
I moved into a new apartment in November, and I'm still getting used to it.

My previous apartment had silent radiant heat in the floors, and this place has an ancient forced air furnace. During the day I don't notice the sound too much, but at night I find it starts with a roar, as if we're taking off for the moon. This wakes me up. Then it makes a sound as if a thousand damned souls are screaming outside my bedroom door, which thus far in my tenancy has severely alarmed me 100% of the times I've heard it.
