Freezing My Beitzim Off

Happy November 5th. I’m happy to celebrate this day not because it is someone’s birthday or a date in history we should be remembering, but because today is the day that heat will be turned on in all of Hebei Provence. In an effort to save money (I guess) instead of letting people control their own housing temperature the government decides when you get heat.

As the seasons are changing it is not as hot as it was a few weeks ago. In the past couple of weeks it has gotten really cold. I asked the people at work what I should do since it was so cold. They told me to wait till November 5th. At night I’ve been so cold that I have had to create another layer of warmth out of all my jackets and sweatshirts just to stay warm. It has been so cold I hated getting undressed, even take a shower. Sometimes I skipped the shower because it was too cold to walk from my room to the bathroom and then to wait for the water to get hot.

Thank God my parents brought me my winter jacket. It is super warm and without it I’m sure I’d freeze to death. Now, not only will I have heat at home, but I wont be freezing my ass of at work too.
