Going to college was the ultimate goal for my best friend. She worked hard to achieve the dream and make her parents proud. In her family, she would be the first female member to get a college degree. I was so proud of her when she was accepted to the top university in our area. Not to mention the relief I felt she wasn’t moving far away. While she went to college, I opted to attend trade school and keep working. My ultimate goal was to become an HVAC technician and set up my operation. At the time, I was interning for the best AC company in the city. We did lots of air conditioning repairs and maintenance for commercial and residential properties. One day my boss informed me I would be working with a new team. He had landed an HVAC installation contract for extra classes in a college. I was happy because it was the same school my best friends attended. I phoned her with the exciting news and planned to meet up at the campus. We had to plan our meeting after I was done with the HVAC setups of the day and she completed her classes. She proposed I spend time in her dorm room instead of going back home for the period. That way, we could catch up, and I’d never be late for my HVAC expert internship. The new classes needed lots of new ducts, which meant we had to spend a month in the school. I wasn’t complaining because I got to spend time with my friends. That time was a blessing since we had started drifting apart. It helped us cement our friendship which was stronger once the air conditioning expansion work was done. She called the other day to inform me the air ventilators in the new classes were working correctly.
