Okay, so, I've been posting a lot of dire shit, and the world is fucked, and there's no ethical consumption under capitalism, but whatever I'm going to tell you about a thing I bought that's under $20 that has made my life significantly more pleasant.
So, most days I work from home, which is very nice, but it's been Kinda Warm For Seattle (which means a gorgeous cool summer day for most of the rest of the country, admittedly), and my laptop is warm, and my cats are warm.
And not too long ago I bought an air conditioner which I actually also love a lot, but most days it's not hot enough for AC; the air temperature would be lovely if it would just MOVE. But my apartment doesn't have a ceiling fan.
Enter this little beauty. Unlike most ceiling fans, it doesn't actually have to be wired into anything: you just hang it from whatever (I initially hung mine from the sprinkler, then moved it to a ceiling light), stick the cord to the ceiling, and voila. amazon.com/gp/product/B07…
I was super skeptical when I actually got it because it was

tiny
cheap
plastic
a bit silly-looking

And then I hooked it up and turned it on and it moves more air than the giant, standard ceiling fan units some of my friends' apartments have.
It's also pretty quiet--there's a *very* faint buzzing with mine, but I think that's from the wire I used to hang it buzzing against the light housing, so I'm going to look at cushioning it.
And, y'know, it was $18.

So, if your living space doesn't have a ceiling fan, and you have *something* on the ceiling you can hang this from (it weighs less than a pound), I highly recommend it.
I have come, in the 24 hours I've had it, to have great affection for it since it is both tiny and mighty.
(oh, btw, since these are so small and light and cheap and don't require wiring, they'd be perfect for if you've got a tent for a summer wedding or other event)
