It's very exciting in the office today because not only do I have a new Mac (I actually got it on Monday, but I wasn't able to really use it until Tuesday and then I was all headachey which is why I didn't mention the Mac joy previously), but I have turned on... the air conditioning in my office!
This may not sound like much, but temperature control is still an alien concept to me. So much so that, all day yesterday, I sat in my office and stewed in the warm and humid office with my headache. It was literally only when a faculty member gave me a funny look, and asked why I was sitting in an overly warm office that I realised I had the power to change that.
Today was entirely different, I was comfortably cool and it was just delightful. I just wilt in warm weather so it does make a hell of a lot of difference to me, but I am still aware of the amount of energy that air conditioning requires, so I'm intending to use it sparingly. Promise.
