I have a few friends who are deaf. And they don't notice many difficulties, since its just life to them. But they say it gets frustrating when someone can't speak sign language, so they have to read their lips but they keep turning away from them. Another thing is when people make fun of them behind their back... Literally. Or when someone doesn't understand the fact that their deaf, and think they're just smarting off.
Oh, and they are able to 'hear' music to a certain extent. If its really loud, they're able to feel the vibrations coming from it and feel the beat of the song.

Communicating can be difficult, as a lot of people do not know of sign language. Being warned of something by sound, say a weather alert, would be difficult as you couldn't here it and know how to properly get to safety. And not being able to hear music.
A deaf person wouldn't hear someone yelling "DUCK!!" or "FIRE!!"..... A deaf person wouldn't hear the fart, they would only all of the sudden smell it..... But seriously, if you have 3 days for this, take a little time to really pay attention to all the things you hear on a daily basis......you should be able to come up with something.....
Since few people know sign language they have trouble communicating with people. They don't hear sirens when driving, or smoke alarms in a house. Or even an alarm clock. Smoke alarms and alarm clocks are made that flash lights instead though.
