My life has changed a lot since I moved to the Northeast… I came from the West where the people I was with and I would be content with just using heat pumps. But these days, I have to deal with lengthy wintertime seasons that are really cold… All of us get tons of snow plus it honestly seems as if I am never able to catch relief from it all. All of us have to safely have the fireplace tested and cleaned out each year. All of us also have to make sure the central furnaces in our homes are always serviced plus ready to go for another lengthy wintertime season. It has been hard plus I am really an odd ball compared to most of the people in these parts; however, it has still been growing on me. The only time I undoubtedly guess that I am like myself is when I go back to visit family plus friends from where I come from. It’s weird because my old condo is starting to be a little more foreign to myself and others every year. Although I don’t get along with these people like I did with the people from my old home. And even though I have enjoyed my experiences with residing in the Northeast, I am thinking about going back home. I would love to just be able to depend on a heat pump once again plus not have to worry about shoveling plus snow blowing all the time like I do now. I do miss my old way of life quite a bit plus I wish I could see my old friends plus family more often. I’m actually undoubtedly working on saving enough currency to get ready to transport myself back to the West.
