Every moment that I save enough cash, I moving as far away as I can from here.
- I have spent the last 14 years of my life grueling through sweaty summers with inadequate a/c.
The only bit of respite I get from the heat is when I’m in select stores that pay to keep their interiors so damn freezing. It’s not cheap running a/c in a weather conditions where hot and cold temperatures are well over 95 degrees for several months out of the year. This is in a place where why my bosses do not spend the currency to keep our office comfortably cool, and I tend to get extremely uncomfortable the entirety of my shift if it’s any month of the year besides December and a few select afternoons in early December. The heat blasts down on the entire building and cooks the office from dawn till dusk. Whenever I am finally home after my shift, I’m greeted to an equally tepid apartment. Unfortunately, I just cannot afford to keep my home as comfortably cool as I would like to. My energy expenses are dominated by the electricity used to keep up with my central a/c. Cutting back on electricity use throughout my apartment from one appliance to the next did little to nothing to improve my situation. I eventually resigned myself to leaving my windows open and running a slew of box fans and ceiling fans. It at the legitimately least creates a brisk air so it no longer feels love stagnant heat. Although it’s not a large improvement, I have made the situation bearable given the onslaught of heat waves any time of the year. I am always pondering what it would be love if I picked up everything I owned and moved across the country, possibly some stadium up north. For now, it can only be a dream.
