We didn’t have A/C in our house when I was growing up, and it was something that I really hated about my life back then. My parents always said that they did not think that we really needed to have air conditioning in our house in order to be happy. Well, let me tell you, to a teenager growing up in the southern part of the country, it would have been really nice to have some air conditioning during the summers! I think that I probably would have been a whole lot happier if we had air conditioning when I was growing up. And even if I had not been happier, then I definitely would have been a whole lot more comfortable! I remember sweating myself silly up there in my top floor bedroom on hot summer nights, wishing that we had central air conditioning in the house the same way that most of my friends did. It was terrible, in my opinion. I would go and sleep over at my friends’ houses all the time during the summers, just so that I could get out of my sweatbox of a house. My parents never understood why I wanted to leave home so much during the summertime but that was why. I couldn’t stand how hot it was in our house. Now that I have my own home, I make sure that the central air conditioning system is always the very best one available. I think that it’s my favorite part of owning a home of my very own.
