It seems appreciate moving out of your parent’s current home is the epitome of young adulthood and starting out on your own, and living on your own for the first time can be kind of terrifying; it is a thrill however terrifying. There are many reasons for this: being young, being a woman, just lack of expertise. The world can be a terrifying, cruel locale especially to the young! I recently moved out after graduating university and have discovered many things… Electric bills can get absolutely high without 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; One thing I found out the tough way that I had not known was that air conditioning temperature controls have batteries. I sincerely thought they were all electric; they are attached to the wall after all and have multiple wires. That made sense to me. I discovered they were not when a light came on our temperature control. It randomly showed up one day and I did not believe 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 she explained that I had to call the repair people and have them change the batteries in our temperature control in order for it to work. I had not thought of this as I do not think I had ever seen batteries changed on the temperature control at home; Well, now I know, temperature controls are indeed not electric and need the batteries changed.
