Don’t miss sitting in horrible air quality at school

The longer this year goes on the more ridiculous things seem to be.

Nobody ever could have predicted that 2020 would go as poorly as it has.

I think everybody expected that by the time our fall and winter weather rolled around, we would be experiencing a normal quality of life again. Instead, everybody is stuck working from home and dealing with remote learning for better or for worse. I know that a lot of people are very unhappy with this setup because they miss seeing their co-workers and fellow students. Personally, I’m not one of those people. I am more than happy to be locked inside my house alone and working on my own projects all day. I can state without any pause that I do not miss the environment at school. This is especially true when it comes to the indoor air handling devices. When I was in school I remember being uncomfortable all the time. No matter what season it was, it felt like they had the thermostat set to an inappropriate temperature. It was always sweltering hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. Sometimes they got their air temperature controls mixed up so it was actually freezing in the summer and burning hot in the winter. Either way, I remember sitting in class and adjusting my temperature as much as possible through sweaters and layers of clothing. I remember shielding myself from the overhead air vents as I attempted to learn. I also remember the disgusting air vents in every room that effectively transmitted germs between all of these nasty kids. No, I don’t miss being in a physical school.
