Have you ever met someone and you were instantly envious of their lifestyle? This was definitely the case at a party I attended last week when I met my friends roommate and he was telling us about all of the exotic places he has traveled to. As he was speaking, I was fascinated by the fact that he spent over half of the year out of the country and that he didn’t seem to mind the different cultures he encountered. I guess I am just the type of person who wants everything to be the same all the time and I can’t see myself adapting to the changes that he had to deal with. I began to realize that most of the regions he travel to or ones that experienced summer light conditions throughout most of the year. When I asked him about this, he said that he definitely planned his trips so that he did not have to deal with any cold temperatures because he hated being cooped up in the house with the heat on. Winter was his least favorite season so he did his best to avoid it at all cost. I asked him if the places that he visited had air conditioning in his hotel rooms and he said many of them did not but he didn’t mind. He said that he will always choose being too hot over being cold and even if he has to indoor hot humid conditions he is willing to do that. I’m so envious about all of the wonderful places that he has seen but I also like having my air conditioner on during the summer so that I’m not uncomfortable so I guess I don’t want to trade lives with him after all.
