This may sound odd but I don’t really like air conditioning. If I can feel that cold air blowing on me, then I get really uncomfortable. At my last vacation in Taiwan, it seems all the rooms had the AC blowing on to the sleeping area. I slept with the blanket over my shoulders and a tshirt covering my head. When I’m in a car or a plane, I turn the air vents away from me.
When I’m driving alone, I rarely turn the AC on. I just roll down the windows and let the air rush in. At home, my condo does get hot during the daytime. I’ll turn the AC on for awhile and then turn it back off once I get comfortable. I rarely leave it on all night.
Here’s where it gets a bit weird. I do like walking outside during the winter. The cold wind will be blowing hard but as long as I’m bundled up, I’m fine. But a cool draft from an air conditioner will have me shivering very quickly. And during the winter, I do open the window to let in some fresh air. Most of the time at night, I turn the heat off.
Maybe my metabolism is just odd.
