One of the reasons I'm trying to go back to a more "normal" sleep schedule is to make staying up late feel special again

I was extremely lucky to be able to move to an apartment on my own at 17, and this was before my uni year started so for a couple of months I could do whatever the fuck I wanted. In one of the first few nights I was up at 3AM and for the first time I didn't give a shit about it because my parents weren't here nor was anybody else, so I didn't feel any guilt about it. Plus I lived on the 25th floor of one of the tallest buildings in my city and the view was awesome

I don't miss much from that apartment but I sure do miss that view. I'm living on the first floor now and it's boooring, plus people outside can just see inside my place

@Siph yeah living in a first floor is one hell of a double edged sword cos its like, on the one hand super convenient on many different levels, but on the other hand you basically cant really open your curtains ever

@avie @Siph Oh here's a chance for words to be confusing! Ground floor is great because no stairs and I'm old with a knee injury, but yeah people can look straight in to windows, even unintentionally.

One floor up from ground seems enough privacy, though if that's first or second depends on location.

I lived in some split level apartments once, where the bottom floor was partially underground, so the entryway had half-steps leading up and down. One up from the bottom was still enough privacy.

@Mycroft @Siph we're both talkin ground floor i believe ye

@avie @Mycroft no actually not hehe I’m one floor above the ground

@avie @Siph English is great because across vast distances we can still use the same words to misunderstand each other~

I just remembered that US was weird and starts counting floors at 1 same as ground, where most everywhere else counts ground as basically 0 and the one above that is 1.
