Suddenly the lights in apartment blinked off and on 3 times. At about 3:40 a.m. on Friday July 03, 2020. The sequence ended as it began, with lights in the on position. I think it was the wall light but since I’m in the kitchen I’m I sure. The sounds of cars in the parking lot are audible to me on the 10th floor. I hear water running suddenly in some other apartment. I don’t know what it means. Fyi, just journaling in the wee hours.
As paranoid as it sounds the reality is you have to be aware that simply by having a place to live, people addicted to drugs see you as a target who can well afford to part with some of your belongings. The typical manner of thought pattern goes like this: You have so much more than they do. These items will make more of a difference in their lives should they acquire them, than they will make in your life if you were to keep them. Why, you will never notice what is missing. And if you do notice something is missing, lucky thing they have just the replacement to sell you, as it happens! Taken from someone else, but the item is being used for a good cause. When something benefits the person who takes it, then that cannot really be considered theft.
Any little bump in the night can throw a scare into a person. Too bad I wasn’t paranoid before I let people know where I live! I won’t ever make this mistake again.
