I have been feeling very tense for the past several days. It started as a combination of sleep deprivation and elevated testosterone. This was followed by a fight with a former e-friend who apparently had been harboring secret hostilities over a misunderstanding for nearly a year. The tension peaked last night when I was assaulted by paint fumes from my neighbor. Opening the window did not help, because his windows were also open. The fumes wafted from multiple directions.

I felt an almost instant sense of relief when the rain started falling. It cleansed the paint fumes from the air, and the sweltering heat went away. My mind can finally see a glimpse of peace again.
