I think this summer my parents are trying to go for a new record of not using the air conditioner at all. The only fan we have is for my dad when he goes to sleep so my mother and I have to bare the heat.
I like summer because I’m more active but what I hate about it is that I can’t sleep. It’s a struggle for me. It’s uncomfortable trying to sleep when your hair clings to your face and sweat builds up on your back from the sheets you’re lying on. I stopped sleeping in my room because it’s windowless and difficult.
I got desperate enough to search somewhere in the building to sleep. The higher up you are in the building the hotter it gets and the humidity makes it so much worst. That’s why I’ve started going to the first floor to sleep in the kitchen floor. It was a relief. I have a better chance at sleeping there then I do upstairs. Of course, my mom caught me sleeping down there and now she does the same thing.
I don’t mind sharing my sleeping spot but it’s annoying when she talks. I don’t want to talk, I just want to sleep. It doesn’t matter if she’s having a one-sided conversation with me she just likes to hear herself talk. I’m having trouble sleeping and she makes it worst with her pointless talking. It’s why I was secretly sleeping downstairs in the first place because I knew she’ll start bothering me.
If I’m having a hard time sleeping I can’t imagine what Fluffy is going through. I’ve been taking her with me so that she can stay cool too. Sometimes sleeping in the first floor is still too hot so I sleep in the porch floor too — that is if the humidity isn’t so bad. With the windows open on that side of the house, you can feel a cool breeze come inside.
Sadly, that’s the only side where open windows make an actual difference. The windows in the front of the house don’t do anything. No breeze comes in because there isn’t any air flow, the houses on the street block it. I’ve been spending most of my time trying to get sleep.
Just yesterday I went to bed early at 7 pm because I had a headache from the lack of sleep and woke up at 7 am and I’m still sleepy. I figure I should write down why I haven’t been actively talking to people so that they can understand the reason for it. It’s not because I’m ignoring you or whatnot. I’m just trying to function in the heat and I do that by taking naps. Sometimes when I do talk I’m even less talkative than usual because I’m trying to not sound cranky or complain.
I would enjoy my summer more if I wasn’t so sleepy and tired most of the time. I think this is the saddest summer I’ve ever had so far.
