Favorites:
Music (that I like)
Rain/thunderstorms
wind moving though trees/long grass
faraway trains/highway
deep male voices talking quietly

Least favorites:
loud talking (especially women, that sounds so bad! but it's the higher pitch and the speed...I feel like guys don't really talk that fast compared to women. Also, because I live in a country where I don't speak the language fluently, it can make me nervous/anxious/annoyed when I can't understand what people close to me are saying)
plastic bag rustling
my cat digging in the litter box
car horns

A constantly barking dog
Snoring (I'm talking to you, Richard!)
The guy in the neighborhood who loves to work on his car on a quiet Sunday afternoon
The people who live across the road from us who argue constantly about credit card debt. At the top of their lungs. She loves to sit outside at night during the summer and yak on her phone. Loudly. And she loves her wine. The more wine she drinks, the louder she gets. I know more about her, her family, and friends that I probably know about my own. I think she'd be more than a little embarrassed if she realized.
