Before I called it a day, I separated the accomplished tasks from the others and turned off the cooling system
It was my first teaching job in a community college four states away. Unfortunately, because I was a rookie, I was assigned to do research on several topics in preparation for the coming school year. Tons of books were on my table and the principal’s assistant said that it was all I needed for a month of research. The heat was unbearable, and the air conditioning was not that good. I had to tell someone to lower the temperature some more. With that mission in mind, I walked to the head librarian’s office. She was not there. After finding the custodian, I found out that I was the only one in the library and that I could very well regulate the thermostat. I looked for the thermostat and to my joy, it was an automated thermostat that connected to my WiFi stick. All I did was connect the remote control to my WiFi and I was able to access the air conditioning units in the library. I turned off those that were far from my table and turned on the two cooling systems near me. It completely made a difference. The cool air felt good as I concentrated on getting the information I needed from the books. After 3 hours, I had to get some lunch. I offered to get the custodian a meal since the cafeteria was closed as well. When I came back, I gave the kind custodian his lunch. I turned on the air conditioning again and ate in the library as I did my work. The custodian dropped by after his lunch and told me I could just leave everything, and he would make sure nothing touched them. Before I called it a day, I separated the accomplished tasks from the others and turned off the cooling system. I never thought I would accomplish that much. The air conditioning system truly helped boost my efforts.
