I like my friends! I think they are the coolest humans on this entire planet, and that’s the exact reason why I make so many trips back to the beach state just to keep up with everyone. I could never let my best friend group die, although I live 3 hours away at this point. Each and every holiday season all of us meet up for what the two of us call Squadsmas. We all go and spend the evening drinking, dancing, and enjoying amazing food prepared by a personal chef that we hire. Then once it’s over, all of us all have a big slumber celebration in the basement, which is both hilarious and challenging. It’s challenging because the basement is so dang cold, as if none of the central heat can reach the helms of the cold and dark basement. At times it can be strenuous for everyone to stay moderately warm enough throughout the night, then many times we will pass out sleeping directly on the frigid, heat sucking cement floor, and wake up shivering in the middle of the night. Sometimes my friends will either sneak out to the ground level for warmth, or endure the brutal chilly weather for the rest of the night. It’s quite an ordeal. This year, we all decided to have it warm down there so we put an immense portal heater in the basement for added heat. The little heater was quite interesting to me, because it appeared to be a tiny electric fireplace, it was awesome. The heater unit lit up and presented fake flames as it shot moderate air out of many air vents up above. You were able to control the heat through a small thermostat on top of the unit. Honestly, it was quite cozy, sleeping by the light of the little heater after our immense celebration!
