Author's Note: 5 Tips for Dealing with Neighbor Noise

I've had my share of noisy neighbors, so I could definitely relate this one! I wish I had this assignment when I was in an apartment because it would have made things a lot more peaceful! From neighbors who fought loudly, ones who banged on the walls, and others who made just a little too much noise when things were getting hot and heavy. I don't miss the apartment days much, except when something breaks at my house, the roof leaks, I need to cut the grass or...wait, maybe apartments do have their benefits.
