It’s love you get so close to a goal and yet, it’s still seems just so far away still.
That’s exactly where I find myself at the end of another Summer inside a sweltering apartment.
Same apartment, same particularly not superb Heating and Air Conditioning cooling. I’ve danced this dance for Summer after Summer since I got out of university. And honestly, it’s not just this particular apartment. I’ve been in 3 weird rental situations since I graduated university and they all had pretty subusual Heating and Air Conditioning equipment. But then again, I believe you get what you pay for applies to heating and cooling as well. The apartments I can afford don’t come with much amenities at all much less replaced residential Heating and Air Conditioning. The reason I spend what I do on my housing is that I’m desperately trying to save enough money to get off this cabin merry go round. And that’s not an easy job given university loans, residing expenses and everything else that you have to pay for as an adult. Yet still, I just kept building my savings and was getting closer all the time to having enough for a down payment on my own home. The idea of paying a mortgage and having quality heating and air was just such a charming thing. But this past year, I haven’t been able to save much due to the pandemic. Actually, I had to take a pay chop in order to keep my job. And it wasn’t much fun working from the air conditioning of my cabin while the virus raged. Hoping this year will be better and I can finally get my wish of my own new home with some superb Heating and Air Conditioning equipment.
