Wake me up When This Long Brutally Cold Winter is Over and Done With

I’m sitting in my flat huddled under a pile of blankets trying to stay warm.

I want to turn on the central heating system but I can see dollars flying out of the vents while it is running.

It is really cold in the flat right now but I am a bit leery about turning on the heat because it just costs so much money to do so. I think I will allow myself two 15 minute sessions of heat per day and no more, because if I ran it like I did last year I would have a $1000 power bill for the two month period. I am better off lighting a fire in the kitchen and heating up the house that way. I was going to buy a small portable hydronic space heater and use it to heat up my office while I work, but I am not sure that the space heater would be that much cheaper to run. I guess wearing more clothes is the secret for now until I get a flatmate in here to help absorb the heating costs. It’s not much better in the summer with the AC and I am going to have to get a roommate if I want to stay cool then. I’m going to dig around town and see if any of the local businesses are hiring HVAC techs or someone who knows how to install ductwork or whatever. There must be someone hiring part time gigs and I guess I just need to get out there and hit the pavement to find out.
