My apartment is hot and stuffy. Right now, and in general too; my apartment generally has poor air circulation.
Right now outside, it is cool and refreshing.
One might suggest I open up the windows and let the air flow as best as it can.
If only it were so simple.
Most of the air flows through the house North-to-South, meaning that the LAST room to get any fresh air is my (South-facing) bedroom. Perpetuating the mugginess and warmness.
But just enough wind goes the other way for the marijuana smoke from my neighbours' balcony to blow straight toward my windows. This triggers my asthma, allergies, and my highly-sensitive anger reflex.
So, were I to leave my windows open overnight or while I am out for the evening, I run a pretty good risk of my apartment reeking of burnt shit when I wake up or return home. Not to mention the equally high chance that I'd be woken up in the middle of the night by my neighbours' terrible, blaring music and loud banter.
I need a lot of good sleep, and I am not a happy grouch when I don't get my beauty sleep.
