When I get emotional I make bad decisions.
I have adopted a new way of keeping calm, so that I can be more analytical, and make choices based on logic instead of whim.
I meditate every day now, as well as smoking copious amounts of cannabis to keep my mind limber. Of late I have been vexed by the question of my home HVAC system, and I am quite unsure of how to proceed. This is a very expensive system, but it is also very old, so I am weighing the pros and cons of a replacement as opposed to a repair. Fixing it will only be temporary, so should I put that repair money towards an entirely new HVAC system instead? There is a part of me that thinks it is ridiculous to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on air conditioning, but on the other hand I can’t exactly live without it. Why do HVAC systems have to cost so much, anyway? This current one is roughly ten years old, so there is a chance it could keep on cooling for another decade… but there’s a chance it won’t. Sinking more money into the old HVAC system could be a waste of resources, but it is also a lot cheaper than buying a completely new system. The other option I found was to spend a few hundred bucks to get a portable air conditioner and a space heater. Maybe I have been deluded this whole time, and I don’t need such a big HVAC system in the first place.
