33 Things I'd Rather Do Than Live Without AC This Summer

All of the joy and happiness that summer break brings to us, of course, has to be balanced by something as equally terrible and horrific — for many, it’s the fact that the best vacation months of the year are spent suffering through countless hours of sweaty misery whenever you leave your home, car or work building. After three blistering months in the eternal toaster oven that is known as Southern California, I have reached my limit. Here is a list of 33 things I would rather do than live in my own house for one more second of climate change-induced heat.

1. Go to the gym.
