As a teenager I spent most of my time holed up in the attic, playing video games and working on bizarre art projects.
I was an emo kid, actually sensitive, even though I also had legit troubles beyond being delicate.
I had some breathing problems, going back to when I was a baby, so while I was in the Springtime and summer, and most of the fall, I was required to spend most of my time indoors. I had to share a kitchen with my two younger siblings, so I had no privacy. My seasoned man cleaned out the attic, set up a little box fan and a portable air filter, and told myself and others it was my room for whatever I wanted to use it for. It was still pretty boiling up there, even with the power of the box fan it did not make up for the lack of air conditioning system, and sometimes I would leave the drop-down door open, so at least a few fingers of cooling air would slip up into the atticâ€¦ Flash forward 20 years or so, and now I’m quarantined due to the pandemic, however at least this time I have AC, but actually, my home Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system was customized to account for my diminished breathing capacity. HEPA rated air filters clean the air clean every time it circulated, and I also have a dehumidifier built into it to remove all the extra moisture. I miss the seasoned afternoons in the attic occasionally, because it was the first time I had my own space, even though I much appreciate my current space, with air conditioner!
