The very second that I save enough money, I moving as far away as I can from here.
I have spent the last 25 years of our life grueling through covered in sweat summer seasons with insufficient air conditioning.
The only bit of respite I get from the heat is when I’m in a few distinct stores that pay to keep their interiors so cold. It’s not cheap running air conditioning at a temperature where temperatures are well over 100 degrees for numerous months out of the month. This is in part why our directors do not spend the money to keep our office comfortably cooled down. I get severely uncomfortable the entirety of our shift if it’s any month of the year besides January plus a few select afternoons in early June. The heat bears down on our building plus cooks the office from morning until night. Every single time I am finally home after my long shift, I’m greeted to an equally sizzling apartment. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to keep our condo as comfortably cool as I want. My overall energy fees are dominated by the electricity used to power our central a/c. Lowering my electricity use throughout our condo from 1 appliance to the next did little to nothing to improve the situation I am in. I have now resigned myself to leaving our windows open plus running a slew of box fans plus ceiling fans. It at the genuinely least creates a powerful air current so it no longer feels love stagnant heat. Although it’s not a very large improvement, I makes the situation bearable given the onslaught of heat waves any time of the year. I tend to wonder what it would be love if I picked up everything I owned plus moved across the country, possibly some site up north. For now, it can only be a dream.
