My closet is my office

Last Update: April 17, 2017

So, this is the situation right now. I have been living in this shared accommodation for the last 2 years and the noise annoys me so much!

There are other 6 people living in the house so I am always hearing doors closing or people talking. There is a girl next door who works less than part time, so she is always around. Arh!

I just can't concentrate properly. I need complete silence!

I bought ear plugs and also a ear muff, but I can still hear the little sounds of doors closing. My wife thinks I am crazy... lol maybe I am!

So I found a little piece of heaven inside my room - My tiny cosy closet! LOL


I put my ear plugs, close the door and I don't hear absolutely nothing!

I know it's not the ideal office, but silence is the most important thing right now.

Do you need complete silence to work? How is your office?

Hi Stefan

The main thing is; Are you happy with the solution to your problem? If you are, then that's all that matters.

I can understand you well, I always use ear plugs for sleeping. But for work, I can listen to classical music. Try with Bach.

This is interesting, Stefan since organizing cllsrts is my niche!

Although I live with two other people, because I don't have a full-time job I'm usually able to have the place to myself for several hours during the day so haven't quiet is not a problem. Hope that your "office" expands quickly.

Well, on one hand, I have quiet for several hours each day; on the other hand, because I only work part time, I have less money in my pocket, so I guess it depends how you define "lucky".

I know, "lucky" is a tricky word.

I can say I am unlucky to work in a closet while some people don't even have a roof to sleep.

I think it's ingenious. I work at Starbucks because i crave the noise and commotion.

Incredible! I never tried working in a coffee shop, but I remember that I hated studying in the University library with people talking. So, I don't think it will work for me :/
