I’m not sure if you’ve ever lived in a shady area, but I undoubtedly have. There were a number of years when I resided right over the edge of a pretty ghetto area of town, and it was a learning experience definitely. For instance, I learned to walk with one earbud during the night time and my keys wrapped tightly inside my hand, just in case I needed something sharp to use. I also learned to keep my car locked as soon as I got into the seating, and never to leave my windows open inside my apartment. This was problematic because the apartment had such terrible heating and cooling capabilities. Since I couldn’t have my windows open, I relied entirely on the apartment’s thermostat to rectify poor air quality or an uncomfortable air heat, and the furnace and air conditioner were not very efficient. I remember it would take a minimum 12 hours for the heater to adequately warm the place during the winter. I could bump up the temperature settings and begin feeling a difference in the ambient air temperature half a day later, if I was at all lucky. I don’t think that this air conditioner ever actually worked. My apartment was easily 85 to 90 degrees, even with the AC cranked at full blast. There would be no way I could catch a nice breeze from outside, because opening that window was a recipe meant for harassment and break ins, so I lived in a burning hot apartment and prayed that I could move soon.
