Being an adult is really hard and easily frustrating at times.
Especially around that bill paying time of the month.
I feel like I work all of our waking hours away just so I can survive till next month, just so I can do it all over once more. Although everyday is pretty much the same routine, 1 thing that consistently seems to catch me off guard and is easily unpredictable is the price of our energy bill. Somehow every summer time our utilities ride the rollercoaster of completely arbitrary rates of Kilowatt per hour and United stages that doesn’t ever seem to match up with the time I really spend at home, and my building uses a gas gas furnace for Winter and warm water is included in the rent so that doesn’t trouble myself and others much, but during the summer time I’m responsible for our electric bill and I use our cooling system as sparingly as possible. I use an energy efficient Air Conditioner which has smart wireless capabilities, so I turn it on right before I get home or keep it running from time to time for our cat, but there’s got to be some kind of air leak anywhere in our apartment because it takes forever to get cold and doesn’t seem to stay cold for more than a few minutes after I turn the Air Conditioner off. I’ve been asking our Landlord to have an ac expert come check out where the leak is to no avail. I easily guess an Heating, Ventilation & A/C expert could at least shed some light on energy saving tips which I desperately need. I’m patiently waiting for autumn to arrive.
