It’s the depth of the Winter, and a few days ago I woke up feeling so cold. I suspected that my heating system had ceased working, of course, I contacted a local A/C corporation immediately because it’s beginning to get honestly frosty outside, and after A/C technician came by for an evaluation, they contended that I would likely need to acquire a new gas furnace. Well, I had purchased this small building 12 months ago using money from an inheritance, but sadly there is nothing left for repairs. I am a PhD student and can’t bear the costs of a new gas furnace. Then, I recalled that my basement was a bit warmer than the rest of the house. I study electronics and have many computer systems in the basement. I was in there today, and calculated that the heat generated by the machines was keeping that room quite cozy. In fact, it was more or less 68 degrees in that basement despite it not having a gas furnace… So I did what any poor PhD student would do, plus I dragged TV, bed, plus dresser into the laptop small basement so that I could sleep plus continue studying there. Of course, this is not going to be forever, but at least for now, it’s fine, I’ll be able to sleep without feeling cold.. I need to find a way to generate money for a new gas furnace. I always could ask my family for help, but they’re already blasting me for not getting myself a job and choose college instead.
