This summer I had this brilliant idea: I wouldn't put in an air conditioner. I mean, last year I didn't need one and they use a ton of electricity, so I thought I would be eco-friendly and save a bit of money at the same time.
Initially, I thought it was a brilliant idea. It hasn't been that hot, and I have been spending most of my days either at school or at work, therefore being in an air conditioned environment much of the time anyway. Unfortunately, the past three days have involved 100 degree temperatures and my hanging out at home, stressing about school. Any makeup I put on is gone by noon, and my hair that was immaculately curled at 9 is now limp and disgusting. My only savior is cold drinks and frozen banana-flavored popsicles.
How do you beat the heat? Are air conditioners the only way?
