You’d think that after living in Australia for about 15 years I’d be used to the heat, but I’m not and I don’t think I ever will be. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being in the sunshine, but I burn after about 20 seconds in it and a temperature of 38 degrees in spring is really pushing it! The lack of air-con in my exam venue yesterday really added to my dislike of hot weather – if you put about 200 students in a room with hardly any airflow, it’s going to get really warm! Encouraged me to work faster though. The only good thing I can say about this heat is that it encourages me to drink lots of water and improve my hydration. I’m stopping here because it’s too hot for me to do anything constructive today.
My favourite things this week – air conditioning and cold water.
