Being an adult is not as easy as I thought it would be.
I thought that being an adult would be simple.
I would be allowed to make my own decisions, plus nobody would be allowed to tell me what to do.
I took a lot of things for granted while I was young that I didn’t realize were particularly large things that my parents did for me, however for instance, I had no method how much a central a/c would cost. My parents bought a central a/c when I was young, transitioning from a few window a/cs. The two of us kids were whining to my parents about how warm it was in our rooms, plus magically, the central a/c that my parents got was keeping the house cool. I never really thought about how much a central a/c cost to purchase plus install. When I got a house of my own, I hastily realized that there was no way that I would be able to afford a central a/c. I had to settle for a window a/c to keep only a few rooms cool. The worst shock about being an adult was the cost to have an Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman service your gas furnace. My parents had to have an Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman to repair our gas furnace several times. I didn’t realize that they literally spent a fortune on this. I thought that when I was an adult, I would have control over every Heating & Air Conditioning component plus everything else in my house. That was true, but that also came with a sense of responsibility. It is not simple doing what my parents did.
