It’s hot. Damn hot. My apartment is like an oven, and I am experiencing the woes of having such a hot apartment without a swimming pool to compensate (something I was naieve enough to underuse in my last apartment and therefore figured I could live without).
It doesn’t even cool down at night in here. Just keeps holding the heat in so it gets hotter and more uncomfortable each day. I even look forward to going to work, just so I can be in an air conditioned building (oh yah, and cuz I like my job).
And as it gets hotter and hotter, and harder and harder to sleep, and I swell from the heat to elephantine proportions, I get crankier and crankier and crankier. Is it too much to ask for to have a decent night’s sleep or somewhere to go and hide from the insane heat? Apparently so.
The huge bitch of it all though, is that I can’t even buy an air conditioner, because I don’t have any standard windows. I’ve got sliding glass doors throughout – which is great for light and the wraparound balcony, but useless for installing window features.
Does anyone have any suggestions for beating the heat? I’ve tried everything I can think of (cool shower/bath, drinking lots of water, cool compress on the back of the neck, a big fan) – and none of it is anywhere near adequate for the uncomfortable sweatshop I’m finding myself living in.
