Studying is hard in the heat

When you’re going back to school it feels like being immersed in a whole new world.

I absolutely forgot what it was like to be a student until this week.

It turns out, being students again is rather stressful and difficult. I have so many things on my plate between working and attending school part-time that I feel like I’m spinning in circles everyday. That being said, I didn’t realize that the most difficult part of this entire academic endeavor would be finding the proper indoor air quality controls to comfortably study and complete my projects each week. I realized a few days ago that studying throughout the summer is very difficult because of the air conditioning in our house. One day it seems like the air conditioning system is barely functioning at all. There are fluctuating hot and cold air temperatures throughout every room and I can’t even predict what kind of air quality I’m going to find next. The next day, the air conditioning system seems like it is operating at full blast even though the settings haven’t changed. I am freezing in my seat and my fingers go numb while I’m trying to type on the keyboard. Then, I find myself trying to study wrapped in blankets and wearing slippers on my feet to escape from the ice cold draft of the air conditioning vent near my desk. Either way, I haven’t found that my learning activities have been greatly enhanced by the central cooling system. I can’t wait for Fall, so I can go through this all over again with the forced air furnace.
