Working Without AC

Jobs aren’t as easy to come by as I once thought.

I spent four years in college not to mention a couple years in high college preparing for a career as an artist.

After graduating from college, I was hired by one of the best companies in our area. I had the privilege of working there for almost five years. They decided to move states, and unluckyly, I wasn’t able to make the move with them, so I was jobless. I worked for another business for a total of about ten weeks before I realized it just simply wasn’t for me. It’s been seven years since then, and I haven’t had anymore possibilities to work as an artist. I have been working in a factory. Although factory work isn’t difficult, it isn’t the most pleasant atmosphere. One of the hardest things to deal with is the temperature of the building. It is usually in the nineties during the afternoon. They do have air conditioner in the building, but it doesn’t work entirely well at all. For the past three years, I have been doing most of my work in the back of semi trucks. I load and unload packages all afternoon long. Of course, there is no air conditioner, and it is so warm that I can hardly sit it. All I long for at the end of the afternoon is a nice air conditioned room where I can sleep. I am entirely thankful to have a job, however I hope that I can soon find another one where I’ll at least have air conditioner.
