As a graduate student, I had my apartment, and worked a full-time job.
I was still studying to be a lawyer, but I had some work ahead of me.
I got home from work one afternoon to find the air conditioning had broken. I had to study for some exams I was taking the following week, and I only had two days to study. There was no way I was going to get any work done when I was sweating into my eyes. I went some place to where there was air conditioning. I placed a phone call to the HVAC company and told them I was going to be at the library. Before they got to the house, they could call me, and I would meet them on the porch. The library was less than five minutes from my apartment. I left my apartment and headed to the library. The air conditioning was on, and I relaxed and started working on my paper. I kept my phone on the table in front of me and turned the volume low. I wanted to hear when the HVAC technician arrived, but I didn’t want to disturb other students who were studying. I had my books open for less than an hour when my phone buzzed. The HVAC technician was standing on the porch waiting for me. I packed up all my papers and my books and headed out into the steamy heat. By the time I got there, I was a hot mess, but the HVAC technician was going to get my air conditioning working again.
