Occasionally I suppose I’ll never be “the same” as “normal” people.
I mean, when I was a kid, I grew up in a odd household.
My family did not have the same financial status as most of the people in my area. Both of us lived on a giant farm, had a minor income, and produced most of our food and clothing ourselves. Both of us entirely lived the simple life. Both of us barely had modern amenities, such as TV, indoor lighting, and central heating and cooling equipment. There were times that all of us made the choice to go without all modern appliances. In fact, growing up, all of us rarely utilized any form of indoor air temperature control whatsoever. Most of the time, all of us relied on nature’s ventilation for our indoor air temperature control, but living out in the country on a immense Farm, all of us had awesome outdoor air quality. The climate was comfortable enough and the air consistently felt fresh and clean. When all of us opened our windows and fresh air came streaming in from outside, it was consistently so clean and refreshing. I entirely enjoyed the sensation of waking up to a nice cool afternoon with the windows open and a breeze blowing through. As an adult, I suppose like I am a bit odd because of my experiences growing up. I still do not like to use central heating and cooling systems. I am not a fan of my forced air furnace or the immense a/c outside. Honestly, I care about fresh air anytime I can get it. I’m sure my friends and neighbors suppose that I’m a real kook, especially when I opt to sleep outside in fresh air rather than utilizing my central Heating, Ventilation and A/C system indoors.
