I finally moved to a location where fall is actually a real season. It’s been so nice to experience an actual autumn this year. I remember when it first started cooling down from the hot summer heat. That was when I officially realized I was no longer in my hometown. My apartment is equipped with a very well-running HVAC system. What was cool about the fall though was that I didn’t really need to use it much. I have a patio and some great windows in my bedroom. When the fall weather rolled in, that was all I needed to keep cool. I didn’t even really need to open the windows or patio door that much either. When I was inside, since it was nice and cool out, I didn’t need it to get any cooler. The air conditioner and the heater stayed off for pretty much the entire fall season. There were only a few times where it would start to feel stuffy in my apartment. In those moments, whether I was in the living room or the bedroom, I would just slide open the patio door or open my bedroom windows. The chilled breeze would flow inside and I would be closing everything back up within minutes. I will say I am going to miss the authentic fall weather when I move back to my original hotter state. I’ll be able to experience it for a little while though during those two weeks of winter my state gets. Hopefully, now that I am a bit more used to such weather, I will be able to tolerate and appreciate it a little better this year!
