Today is going to be a big chill beach day and I want to get out there by about 4pm, or half past the hour at the latest, so I can get a good spot in the sand.
The nice part about living in this town is I don’t have to try and find a parking space for my car like I do back home in the States.
That was such a pain about living back home that I grew tired of the hassle and decided I was done with the rat race of chasing the American Dream. Air conditioning is not as much of a necessity as back in the States where I lived in the south, requiring the use of a/c almost all year round. I can hop on my bike and be at the beach in the sand within about three minutes. Back home it would take me about 45 minutes of driving and then after I got a parking spot it would take me ten more minutes to walk to the beach. Anyway, I just ordered a mini split a/c unit for $240 for my bedroom so I don’t freeze my flatmate out each night as I run the cooling unit for the whole flat just to cool my small bedroom. So I am hoping that this unit saves me money each month and pays for itself over maybe two summers or so. I figure I can save $40 a month on my air conditioning bills by running this much smaller cooling unit compared to the big central cooling system.
