When I graduated from high school, I got lucky. I earned a full scholarship to the college of my choice. Scholarships are pretty cool. I don’t have to worry about getting an apartment because I have placement in the dormitories. This is neat, because I don’t need to worry about rent, cleaning, or any of the bills that go with living in an apartment. As long as I can conform to the rules of the cafeteria, I can eat three meals a day, and never need to go shopping. Unfortunately, my schedule doesn’t always coincide with the schedule of the cafeteria, so it is good that I am able to have a mini refrigerator and a microwave. I can get a lot of little items that all I need to do is heat them up and I’ve got a meal. The only downside of being in the dorm is that I don’t have any control over the HVAC. There is one central thermostat that controls the entire floor. I’m not sure who has taught the maintenance crew about setting the thermostat, but they need to learn. Nothing that happens with the temperatures inside of the dorm has anything to do with the weather outside. It can be sixty-five degrees outside, and since the normal temperature is supposed to be eighty, the air conditioning is blasting. On the other hand, if it is eighty-five, and the average temperature is only sixty, we have heat blowing. I don’t get it. Thermostat control should be an easy thing. I was controlling a thermostat when I was six and in my own bedroom. I wanted to complain, but it would probably be two years till something gets done, and I will have graduated till then.
