If it wasn’t for my girlfriend and my mother talking me into it I would have most likely continued to work myself into the ground, but those ladies can be very persuasive
For the past three weeks during this summer season, my city has been dealing with some extremely high temperatures. In fact, it has been so hot for the majority of this summer that you could easily fry an egg out on the sidewalk if you were feeling like it. I have been working at a local construction company full time for the past year now, and by the time I get home after a full shift I am so tired and exhausted that all I want to do is lay down next to the air conditioning unit. After a solid month of continuing with this same pattern I decided to make a change and take a day off of work. During my day off all I did was sleep in, watch all of my favorite television shows, and soak up all of the air conditioning that I could. If it wasn’t for my girlfriend and my mother talking me into it I would have most likely continued to work myself into the ground, but those ladies can be very persuasive. To put it simply, it was the best decision that I have made in a long time! Having this one day off work being able to cool off and let my muscles recover helped me come back to work the following week with a pep in my step that will hopefully push me through the rest of this summer season. Summers down here in the south are hard, but the are a whole lot easier when you have some high quality air conditioning at your disposal!
