It’s that time of year again when they shut the building heat off and get ready to transition it to air conditioning. It’s earlier this year, which is good because there always seems to be a pre-summer heat wave that hits us before they manage to get the a/c on.

I just hope it switches over completely before the warm days that are coming next week because I hate sweating but yet I refuse to sleep without socks.

It’s a weird quirk of mine.

Maybe I’ll buy a new fan since mine feels like someone just lightly blowing in your face, even though I’ve literally pulled it up right beside my bed. I’m not sure why it sucks so bad.

My youngest has this one and it is actually awesome. A strong blast of wind, and the air feels cold, and as someone who runs really hot, she declares that it is the best fan she’s had which is a strong recommendation coming from her.

I made no new purchases this week although this shirt from yesterday’s capsule wardrobe post is in my basket right now. I just don’t know what size I want.

I am leaning towards a tall medium. That way I get some extra length which is what I want because I want to ensure butt coverage.

So to sum up this week, I hate taxes, I hate the heat, and I want a new fan. Have a good one.
