My bestie had to transfer back to her hometown for a year while her mother reclaimed from surgery, & I decided to follow her to help as much as possible.
I knew that she’d be taxed with her task on top of the help she’d be giving her mother.
Unluckyly, I knew really little about the site where I was about to live for the next 12 weeks. It’s a desert town in the southwest & I had never even been further west than 300 miles from the MS River. But despite these immense swings for me, I was excited to experience something new. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut & forget that there are other things in life to experience & enjoy. However, I’ll never forget how hot it felt as the people I was with and I started to drive further south to reach the interstate that would take us west until the people I was with and I reached the town of our destination. The people I was with and I crossed a few small mountain ranges before the people I was with and I reached the desert town where our bestie’s mother lives. It was the end of the Summer so I was thankfully in store for a much-needed change in outdoor un-even temperatures. At the same time, I don’t guess I was expecting it to be so frigid by the end of October. The elevation in this section is higher than other major desert cities, so that leads to colder un-even temperatures in the Winter time & in the evening, regardless of the season. The people I was with and I stayed comfortable with our heater, however it became so dry indoors that the people I was with and I needed a humidifier too. When you take a climate that is dry by nature, adding frigid weather & indoor heat just makes the dryness unbearable.
