Feeling a Little Homesick
I never know when I'll have electricity at my apartment and that means that I constantly have to be prepared to not have power. I never know if I'll be able to cook dinner for Earth and I so I have to have food that doesn't need cooking on hand. I never know if we'll be able to charge our devices so I have to plan ahead and bring our devices and chargers into work with me. I never know if we'll have AC at night so I have to be prepared to fan Earth while he falls asleep because the apartment turns into a sauna when there's no AC and no breeze.
I know we are living in the lap of luxury, relatively. We have AC when we have power, we have beds, doors that lock, and a secure food source, things that are inaccessible to others on this island. I know how lucky we are to have all this. But knowing all that doesn't make it easier to sleep when power is out and the voices of the dozens of kids in the street manage to come through the window but a breeze doesn't.
