Power is Back

So I talked to my apartment manager this morning for the 4th time and they’re finally sending a electrician to take a look at my problem. Before I tell you the good news, lets talk about what happened in the past few days.

As I mentioned, I had a power outage when I was in the middle of vacuuming and doing laundry at the same time. So yah… the laundry’s been in there since Sunday afternoon, when I first requested for assistance, and both machines were loaded. The whites and light colored were in the dryer and the colors and dark were in the middle of the washing cycle. In the mean time, I’ve ran out of clothing I can wear. I was actually wearing my last pair of pants that day and this pair of pants has been keeping me clothed for the past 4 days. I had plenty of shirts, so that wasn’t a problem, but I was out of underwear and if you know me, low on underwear = time to do laundry. Thankfully, the whites were the first one to be washed, so I hung a few pair of them out to dry.

Shower was another problem. My hot water heater ran on electricity. Though the heater was on, there was not enough power to it, and the hottest the water got could be said to be mildly luke warm. So I managed to take a shower every other day by using a vacant apartment. On the other days, I would just wash my hair in the mildly luke warm water.

My microwave and my stove were both non-functioning due to limited power it could draw. That didn’t really affect me much, since I just ate out the entire week. Nothing too drastically different from my normal eating habits.

I already mentioned moving my computer outside since there was 1 outlet that was functioning correctly. Turns out to be a better place for the computer anyway and I’m closer to the kitchen.

Welp, today when I got home, I did my routine check to see if the lights dimmed when I turned appliances on. BAM! Everything is working! I ran to the washing machine and pushed the start button and it started to work! Yay! Finally, my current pair of pants can go to rest.
