I grew up in the north, where the winters were freezing and the summers were mild. I was used to the cold, and I found comfort in it. So, when I moved down south for college and then work, I was unaccustomed to the hot temperatures of the region. The air felt hot and stuffy, and more often than not I was uncomfortable. I kept my home air conditioned from the moment I arrived home from work to the moment I left in the morning. Unfortunately, running my AC so much used up a lot of electricity and grew to be very expensive, so I had to cut back on my cooling usage. Still, I found myself being unable to sleep at night without having my air conditioner running or, at the very least, a fan on right by my bed. I was so used to cuddling up underneath my blankets to get cozy on chilly nights that I was just unable to get comfortable and fall asleep in a hot room. And so I did my best to use least cooling during the hot days, so that I could afford to run the AC at night when I knew I’d need it to help me sleep. I held onto the hope that since I was having to deal with the heat more, that perhaps my body would finally start to get accustomed to the hot temperatures, but months passed and the days never got any better. Even in the fall, when all of the locals would start to put on their jackets as the temperature slightly fell, I was out wearing tank tops and shorts. I belong in the north, with the colder temperatures, and I plan on moving back as soon as I can.
