Luxury items are things that make our life that one little bit better, whether it be a new sofa or even a new CD. So far in my current lifestyle, I don’t have many luxuries due to my spending habits. But this year is different and I finally took the initiative to make my life that little bit more luxurious. So finally after 14 years in the current family home, I now have air conditioning!
In the past my parents were never believers of having aircon due to the running costs involved. But since I have a steady income and pay most of the bills, I can now afford such things. As some of you know, living in Australia means dealing with some scorching hot summers where at my house it can get to extreme temperatures of 45 degrees Celsius and with the PC on, it just makes it that much hotter. Now that I work from home at times, trying to concentrate in the heat just doesn’t work. So how did I manage without it so far? With sheer determination and a small fan.
It couldn’t come at a better time either since I’m still dealing with the chicken pox and it certainly has kept me comfortable. The other thing as well is that I don’t have to worry about my PVC princesses suffering from the heat build up in my room either which was always a concern each summer. Now the only thing is that my room can now get so cold that I have to wear a jumper at times.
Could you live a life without aircon?
