The pandemic has upended my life very much like it has the vast majority of people in this country.
I really didn’t ever expect to face a real life, once a century, global health crisis. The idea of it has of course been with us ever since I can remember. There were novels and movies that I saw where our species faced extinction from a viral threat. However, the reality of this situation, while not as dire, is for sure difficult. Staying inside the HVAC for the majority of the summer has been a different situation for sure. My job will probably never be the same. I actually think that our company is taking advantage of this situation to get rid of the nice office space with the perfect HVAC. I certainly can understand this move given the expense of leasing out nice office space. At the same time, I am really bummed to face the fact that I may never be in my old office again. This really bums me out because I worked so hard to finally get an office like that. It has floor to ceiling windows and customized HVAC that I can control with a remote. Now, I work from home and all of our meetings are held online. This actually works out fairly well. And, I am so thankful that we replaced our old HVAC a year earlier than we had planned. I don’t know how I would continue to deal with this situation without excellent HVAC comfort.
