Have you ever lain awake because it was just one of those nights when it just didn’t seem right, and all of a sudden you realize that it is just too quiet. There is this little thing called white noise. White noise is the noise that you hear all of the time and you forget the noise is there until it is gone. I knew I would have a problem with this at home, but I never thought I would have a problem with this at work. It was really weird when I got to work one day and the air conditioning wasn’t working. It was absurdly hot and humid because it was the middle of summer, but it was also strange because of the lack of noise that I was used. I tried to get some work done, but it didn’t matter what I did, I couldn’t get anything accomplished. The noise wasn’t there. Without the air conditioning running, I felt like I was lost and unable to concentrate. I was not only unable to concentrate, but I was also having less ability to get anything done. I sat there wondering if I would be better able to get work done if I were to have a fan, or even if I were to bring in my own portable air conditioning. I knew the lack of cooling air was also a part of the problem. I decided to just try to muddle through and just wait till they got the AC fixed. It wasn’t going to be easy, but I knew I could survive this.
