It seems like moving out of your parent’s beach house is the epitome of young adulthood and starting out on your own, but living on your own for the first time can be kind of frightening; it is a thrill but frightening, then there are numerous reasons for this: being young, being a man, just lack of knowledge. The world can be a frightening, cruel venue especially to the young! I recently moved out after graduating school and have discovered numerous things, then electric bills can get honestly high separate from you even realizing. Toilets tend to run when you least expect it. If you want a prayer of saving money, you need to learn to cook, but one thing I found out the difficult way that I had not known was that a/c control units have batteries. I honestly thought they were all electric; they are attached to the wall after all and have many wires. That made sense to me. I discovered they were not when a light came on our control unit. It randomly showed up 1 afternoon and I did not know what it meant. “BATT” is what it said in bold, black, blinking font. In a panic, I called our mom and asked her. I felt stupid, as he explained that I had to call the service people and have them change the batteries in our control equipment in order for it to work. I had not thought of this as I do not know I had ever seen batteries changed on the control equipment at home, however well, now I know, control units are indeed not electric and need the batteries changed.
