I struggled through a few hours trying to stay comfortable separate from the air conditioning.
Periodically when I am feeling down about my life or my circumstances I need a reminder that things are not so bad plus I have a lot to be grateful for. Luckily, the universe is constantly ready to show me that things can be a lot worse. The other day, for instance, I was doing homework plus mentally complaining to myself about what an uncomfortable situation I was in. I felt genuinely overloaded plus just wanted to relax for the evening. Just as I was lamenting my own victimhood because of my master’s program, the power hastily flickered. Our electricity went off plus back on before it ultimately disappeared. Without the electricity, I lost my ability to do my homework plus all of the lights in the apartment, and unfortunately, this also meant that I lost all indoor air pollen levels control measures. Our AC unit stopped laboring, our thermostat was completely blank, plus there were not even fans available to circulate the sizzling plus humid air inside of the apartment. All of a sudden, I was surrounded by stagnant plus muggy indoor air. I struggled through a few hours trying to stay comfortable separate from the air conditioning. I lit a few candles so that I could navigate the space. However, I realized that those tiny flames were contributing to the uncomfortable indoor air issue.That’s when I finally gave up plus just laid perfectly still in the balmy air – accepting my sweaty fate for the rest of the stagnant night. That’s when I realized, things could constantly be a lot worse… I could have no air conditioning or electrical conveniences. Just then, the power plus AC unit roared back to life.
