I Found a Place Close to the Base

Posted in Uncategorized on August 11th, 2019

The place is really small, but then again I am just one person and I am thinking that I should be able to find someone to rent the extra room if I really wanted to do it. I did have to get adt in San Diego to come in and put in a simple system for home security. I have been talking to some of the neighbors and they tell me that there are occasional break ins in the area. It seems from what they say that it is kids doing it, for example they seem to figure out when people are not at home and then they will hold a party in it. I suspect that these kids would be easily deterred and that if they knew you had an alarm. Read the rest of this entry »

Uncle Will Pay the Cost

Posted in Uncategorized on August 19th, 2017

I have one of the coolest uncles in the world. I wanted to move into my own place, but my financial situation wasn’t the best. He came up with a solution to get his son out of the house and help me. He proposed that his son and I move in together. My uncle was willing to help my cousin and I get one of the luxury apartments near Ballantyne NC by paying for our rent for a few months while we landed some solid jobs. I don’t know too many people who will do this for their family, but I’m glad I have an uncle who will.

We put our heads together to find a good place that would be our new residence. Read the rest of this entry »

Doing What I Love to Do

Posted in Uncategorized on August 17th, 2017

I have loved flowers ever since I was a young girl. I would plant flowers in our yard and make beautiful arrangements with them, and then I would give them to all the neighbors. I don’t think it surprised anyone when I became a florist. I worked for someone else for nearly two years, but I realized that I needed my own creative process to matter, so I opened my own flower shop. Before I did, I looked at everything i would need, including flyer printing and distribution in Singapore.

The reason that was so important to me is because I knew that I was going to have to make myself known to people. There were already two established flower shops in town, so I wanted to get my name out there as the new florist in town. Read the rest of this entry »

Why We Kept Our Contract with the Cleaning Services Company After We Finished Up Our Major Work Projects

Posted in Uncategorized on January 17th, 2017

Work can get crazy. The more you do, the more they expect from you. I have had to actually sit my boss down and set boundaries that the corporate world is not allowed to cross. However, I am not stupid. I realize that there are others who are willing to jump into your job and push you out of the way for less money and more hours spent at work. I never liked that about the corporate world, but it is what it is. Recently, my wife and I had to research cleaning companies to help take care of our home as we both had major projects at work that needed more attention than we really wanted to put in.

The staff we had to develop the project was new for both of us. We had to spend countless hours bringing them up to speed on a learning curve for the technology that was being developed for the client. Read the rest of this entry »

The Second Bedroom is Our Home Office

Posted in Uncategorized on April 4th, 2017

My husband and I are both go getters. We graduated at the top of our classes, and we have already started a quick climb up the corporate ladders in our respective companies. When a headhunter for a company in College Park gave both of us an offer that was just too good to pass up, we knew that we were going to move there and see if the gamble pays off, which we both think it will. I took care of looking at College Park GA apartments so we could move in before we had to start working while he worked on figuring out how to break our lease without it costing us a lot of money, which he did!

I also succeeded in my own search because I found the perfect place for us to live. The Pad is a new apartment complex, and it is exactly the kind of place where we both want to live. They have so many different things that are so appealing to us. The first is the location. It is a quick train ride away from our new work place, and there are even days where we will be able to work from home. Read the rest of this entry »

I Set Up Safety Barriers on Flat Rooftops and Have No Fear of Heights

Posted in Uncategorized on May 23rd, 2017

I have always liked skyscrapers. My parents have taken my sister and I to visit some of the tallest buildings in the world ever since I got an interest as a child. I have visited buildings with glass-floored balconies and have been happy to walk right out on them while my parents and even my brave sister hesitated. They have one like that at the Grand Canyon now. I work in high places, and I plan safe areas for workers to walk and erect wind resistant roof safety barrier systems. I have painted bridges and water towers and go rock climbing pretty much every weekend. Read the rest of this entry »

A Proposal at Parc Esta

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22nd, 2019

My girlfriend and I had been dating for a couple of years, and I finally felt that I was ready to pop the question to her. I thought about how to go through with it for months, and came up with the perfect scenario. Rather than doing something that was crazy and too elaborate, I decided to just keep it simple and let my words do all of the work. I invited my girlfriend over for dinner at my place at Parc Esta. I saw a recipe for a delicious roast on television that I wanted to try out.

Since my girlfriend had no idea that I was going to propose to her, neither of us was wearing anything fancy for the dinner. It looked just like we were having a regular night of dinner together. I knew that by the end of the night, she would be completely surprised by my proposal. It took everything I had to keep from spilling the beans before it was the right moment. She really loved the roast that I made for dinner, and she especially loved the pie that was for dessert.

At the end of the movie is when I made my move. I started talking and then got down on one knee and pulled out the ring, and before I could even finish asking the question, my girlfriend said yes. She shouted so loudly that everyone else in the complex probably was able to hear her. That was the easy part of the whole thing, but now comes the hard part of actually planning a wedding. My girlfriend says that she wants to have a more simple wedding, but it remains to be seen if she keeps to this idea or starts adding things that won’t make it so simple.

Nothing Like Doing a Little Spring Cleaning

Posted in Uncategorized on May 2nd, 2018

I needed some help with Spring cleaning in Singapore seeing as how I’d moved in with my mother because of her health issues and quickly resolved that she’d really let the place go in the last few years. It’s not surprising the apartment looked so dirty considering she has really bad arthritis. I doubt anything had been dusted in a few years. Moreover, the kitchen really needed some heavy duty work. I would have done it myself, but I have my hands full with a full time job as well as taking care of her in my spare time.

I went online to find a company that specialized in doing a full blown Spring cleaning. Read the rest of this entry »

He Got My Son to Place at the Top of the Class

Posted in Uncategorized on April 11th, 2018

Thanks to Physics tuition for getting my son to the top of his class! After agonizing with him through the first few weeks of his class, I would have never believed it possible that he would end up with the honor of having one of the highest grades on the final exam. I fancy myself somewhat of a Physics wunderkind, but I couldn’t explain the material to him in a way that he could understand it. He worked his heart out over his text book, but just couldn’t make heads or tails of the material.

That’s when I decided to call in the professionals. Read the rest of this entry »

You Must Learn to Delegate and Find the Right Team of People to Work for You

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4th, 2018

A buddy of mine was the owner of an apartment building for many years. He’s made a good living with it. When he decided to put the building up for sale, I immediately purchased it. I didn’t want to handle all the work by myself, so I hired a part time cleaner in Singapore to help keep everything looking good. I also hired someone to do the bookkeeping, too. The friend who I bought the building from handled these things by himself. It’s not a very large building with a lot of units, so it doesn’t demand a big staff. However, I also knew that he decided to sell the building because he felt burned out, and handling everything alone got to be too much for him over the years.

My dad taught me long ago that delegating is really important. People often feel that they are the only person who can do something correctly, so they take on too much. This is how people end up taking on too much and making a lot of mistakes that can ruin a business or cause burnout. You need to do your research and work with people who are good workers that have a good work ethic. If you hire someone who doesn’t do a good job, fire them, move on and hire someone better. It’s that easy.

The person I hired on as a part time helper has been really good to me. He is very punctual. He does a thorough job. He is enjoyable to work with. The woman who does my bookkeeping is also very punctual, and she rarely makes a mistake. Between the three of us, work has been nice on a daily basis. We all care about what we do, and that means a lot in the work world.

Purchasing a Condo for Our Music Venue

Posted in Uncategorized on January 24th, 2018

I work for a booking agent in Singapore. We book musicians from all over the world to perform at our venue. One thing we do differently for the acts we book is we pay for their transportation and lodging. Over the course of time, the costs for lodging have significantly added up. We decided to look into the possibility of purchasing a condo for musicians to use when they are here. I’ve been assigned the task of finding such a place. After hours of searching the internet, I stumbled upon the following website: http://www.thenewfuturacondo.com.sg This website features brand new modern condos that are only about 8 blocks from the venue that we use.

My Daughter Surpassed Her Fellow Students

Posted in Uncategorized on January 10th, 2018

My daughter was having trouble with some sciences, and I knew that we had to do something about this in order for her to get into the university that she wanted. While science was not her desired area of study, she still had to do better than what she was in order to get admitted. The university wants well rounded students regardless of their area of study, so I knew that we were going to have to look into Singapore physics tuition to see if we would be able to afford to have a tutor help her.

I had never looked into this before as she has always done so well in all of her subjects. It was not until she saw the exam that would help her get into the university that she saw she would need to brush up on her physics. That was the only area where there was some struggle.

I Am Trying to Eat Better

Posted in Uncategorized on December 5th, 2017

At first I was trying to just go with one of those meal replacement plans, if you want reviews for ideal shakes then I could give that to you. In essence I found them boring and although I suppose that they have their merits, but it is not at all like having a real meal. The ideal is that you give up one meal per day and then you have to do the rest yourself. I was really dedicated to the idea for a couple of weeks. In fact I would eat breakfast normally, then I would have one of the shakes instead of lunch. When I got home I would try to eat a light meal. For example I would make a salad for supper, although some of the time I really doubt that they were extremely low in calories. Read the rest of this entry »

I Had a Really Long Day

Posted in Uncategorized on November 20th, 2017

The ladies decided that I needed to look good for my first show, so they sent me to get my hair done. First they spent about half an hour arguing with one another about how they wanted to have it done. I did not like it that much, but they did not really ask me to go along with the decision they made. After that they all went to a manicure service in Singapore and they got their nails done, they even made me do it while they teased me. Of course they had a terrible time with the last guy and they think I am really going to turn the band around. Read the rest of this entry »

Chiropractic Care is Preventative Medicine

Posted in Uncategorized on November 14th, 2017

I was not sure if I really needed to see a chiropractor, but I went along with it just to keep peace in the family. My daughter had been after me for years to see one of the chiropractors in Santa Maria, but I kept saying no. There was just no reason for me to see a doctor like that when I had no back pain at all. She tried to tell me that it is a great preventative resource, but I am nothing if not stubborn. If I am not hurting, I am not going to go and try to stop future pains from coming. It just made no sense to me.

Well, those years of saying no finally caught up to me. Read the rest of this entry »

Stopping My Early Hair Loss from Getting Any Worse

Posted in Uncategorized on November 4th, 2017

I was going bald at 20. Not something I expected, and definitely not something I desired for myself. I never bothered to ask when my dad or grandfathers began to lose their hair. I started to notice a little recession of my hairline at 18, but I ignored it. Now at 20 it was pronounced. I went to an aesthetic medical clinic in Singapore to see what could be done to correct the problem. I did not even know that there were different types of medical diagnoses for hair loss. Fortunately, mine was partially treatable through medications.

Through the medication and other therapies I now have a full head of natural hair again. Read the rest of this entry »

A Chiropractor Has Changed My Life

Posted in Uncategorized on November 2nd, 2017

When you get migraines as much as I used to get them, you learn the different tricks and tips that will help you get through one. That does not take the pain away at all, but it does allow me to experience the least amount of pain as possible, which is still pretty bad. I was so tired of my migraines, and I had no idea why I had to experience these painful headaches. My doctor did not have that answer for me, but he did suggest that I see a Santa Barbara chiropractor to see if I would be able to find any relief through that sort of treatment.

I was not too optimistic because nothing else seemed to work. Read the rest of this entry »

I Found the Best Place to Live

Posted in Uncategorized on October 7th, 2017

I knew that I was going to have to go to the official website for Parc Life if I wanted to see the Parc Life price list for each individual unit. There are quite a few different sizes and kinds there, and I wanted to look at the prices of each one before I made a decision on the one that I wanted to have. There is only one type of two bedroom unit as well as the five bedroom unit. For the four bedrooms one, people can choose between two different types of units.

The three bedroom units is where there are really a lot of different choices. There are three different styles, including the Viva, the Verandah, and the Vista. With the Vista, there are two different types of floor plans available. It does not stop there though. There are also 105 units that have three bedrooms plus a universal room. This can be used for pretty much anything. Read the rest of this entry »

I Hurt My Back Moving

Posted in Uncategorized on August 17th, 2017

I have been thinking about what to do about the pain in my back. It started after I moved my stuff to a apartments for Mission Viejo. It is not constant, but it does come and go. In particular I often get real stiffness in the morning when I am trying to get out of the bed. Of course the obvious thing to do is to go see a chiropractor and that is what really makes the most sense. However you really have to think a lot about who you trust and the reasons are very clear if you look carefully at how a chiropractor does what he is doing. Read the rest of this entry »

Our Apartment in Colorado is Really Nice

Posted in Uncategorized on August 15th, 2017

I have lived the majority of my life in Georgia, so I knew that moving to Colorado was going to be a whole new world for me. It was a move that I definitely looked forward to, especially because it meant that my wife and I along with our daughter were finally going to start living out our dreams. We did not have a lot of time to get things sorted though, so we decided to look at apartments in Colorado Springs rather than a house right away. We knew that it would be better for us to get used to the area before settling in any specific area without knowing the lay of the land there.

My wife is a stay at home mom, so I knew that she would be able to explore the different areas so she could determine what area we wanted to buy a house. Read the rest of this entry »

Live the Life You Have Always Wanted

Posted in Uncategorized on August 14th, 2017

Living in California has always been a dream of mine. I grew up in Illinois, a land lock state. The only time I ever got to go to the beach was when my parents would take me to Florida once a year. But I always dreamt of living in California near the ocean. So after my parents split up, my mother and I decided to live the dream and move to California. We needed to find a nice apartment. I did a internet search for oceanside luxury apartments .

My mother and I had some very specific needs since we would be sharing the apartment. Read the rest of this entry »

I Moved Across the Country

Posted in Uncategorized on August 11th, 2017

My birth mother put me up for adoption when I was just a few days old. I used to struggle with that until I met her a few years ago for the first time and she explained why she did that. It was then that I realized just how much she did love me, and I wanted to get to know her better. My adoptive parents had both passed away, so I was happy when my birth mom suggested that I look at apartments for rent in Colton CA.

I was living in Ohio at the time and she was across the country in California, which meant that the majority of our interaction was done online. Being in the same city as her though, that would take our relationship to a whole new level. It would also allow me to get to know my younger sister and brother along with their families. I immediately started looking at apartments there, and I found a really nice one at The District. I didn’t need anything huge, so the one bedroom unit was perfect for me.

Life in Vegas is Amazing

Posted in Uncategorized on August 9th, 2017

Las Vegas is a town that so many people like to go to for vacation. While the main draw is the casino action, there is so much more about Vegas than that. There are all kinds of shows, rides and attractions that even the locals like to visit. That is why I wanted to move there, because I knew that I would never be able to get enough of it with just one trip. I looked at apartments for rent in Summerlin in Las Vegas, which is how I found the apartment that I live in now.

I was going to advertise for a roommate, but I decided that might be a little too dangerous with me not knowing a soul here at first. Read the rest of this entry »
