I will never forget the day that I moved into my apartment. This was a huge deal for me because I saved enough money to buy my own place. My first apartment was not huge by any means, but it had the basics. It had one bedroom, one bathroom, heating, air conditioning, a nice view and a charming little kitchen. The apartment complex also had a nice heated pool and air conditioned club house for residents. The apartment I bought was located in the southeastern region of the country, where summers are unbearably hot without air conditioning. On move-in day, my air conditioning decided to stop working abruptly. I was already sweating from moving and unpacking boxes on this sweltering day, so the last thing I needed was my air conditioning to stop working. I was dripping sweat and I felt like I was going to faint. I started getting dizzy from being overheated, so I put my arm on the wall and put my head down. As I was trying to prevent myself from collapsing, my next door neighbor came out and asked if I was okay. I told her that I was moving in and my air conditioning stopped working. She told me that her air conditioning was working perfectly and asked if I wanted to come in for a cold glass of water. I was impressed with her generosity and I walked into the cold, crisp air of her air conditioned apartment. My neighbor’s name was Stacey and she was around my age. She gave me the contact information for the HVAC company that works on the air conditioning units in our apartment complex. We started chatting and realized we had similar interests. My air conditioning led us to becoming best friends.
