As student-athletes, my roommate and I stay occupied with either homework or interests. Every one of us recently  gained a shot of energy in the arm when our sophomore year rolled around, though. After we spent our first year serving time getting situated and becoming correct with living on campus as freshmen, we were eventually granted permission to live off campus. Consequently, we moved away and into an apartment. Neither my roommate nor I were upset much with the weather at first since we moved during the middle of Spring, but, we were all about it once the sizzling summer time temperatures rolled around. And with the sizzling temperatures came much excess heat and humidity, which gave us cause for concern for livelihood sake. As a result, we decided to ask around to a few fellow off-campus peers and even some on-campus 1s regarding ways to deal with our new hot, humid situation. After a flood of suggestions, we  gained a tip from 1 set of students that we ought to obtain and set up a series of devices called dehumidifiers around our locale as the reported function of such devices was to detract excess indoor heat from our residence and thereby render it much more bearable. Since we had essentially no other logical opportunities to choose from, we followed through with the advice. After just a few afternoons of the new setup we began to see a difference, and 1 for which my roommate and I were substantially grateful. In turn, not only was our locale much cooler overall, however our clothes were much lighter and fresher than they had been in weeks leading up to the changes.
