I Learned to Never Sell Myself Short at Work

Written on May 2, 2018 at 4:31 pm, by admin

I am no longer in school. I am in a decent job that has room for advancement. I was thinking about getting another degree, but I am not sure if I have the time with the job, two kids and the charity work I do. However, I did need to brush up on some physics for some new things we are doing at work. So, I quietly enrolled in physics tuition to help me with some areas I was having trouble with. The reason I chose the instructor that I did was because he did such an excellent job with our two children. Our kids improved their physics understanding by two full letter grades. I figured that if he could help them, then he could definitely help me brush up on some things I really needed to learn quickly for my job.

The last thing you want in a competitive work environment is to look like a dummy in front of your peers or your superiors. I was really worried for a time. Read more

I Need Help While I Figured out Which Place I Wanted to Work at Next

Written on April 2, 2018 at 4:31 pm, by admin

When I graduated, I lived at home with my parents while I searched for the perfect job. Once I landed a job, I was really excited to get my own place. I quickly found out that employees are expected to spend a lot of time at work, so I hired someone from https://www.kleepers.com to help me with housecleaning. I knew that you should never spend only 8 hours in the office when you have just been hired, but I had not idea that employees at my new company spend as much as 14 hours per day working in the office.

I’m all for doing really well at whatever a person does. I work hard, and I don’t have a lot of trouble with being tempted too much by idle things when I know there is work to be done. It is very common in my country for people to work beyond their scheduled hours. I was ready for that. However, I was not reading for never being home. Read more

Tree-Lined Driveway Needed Some Housekeeping

Written on March 3, 2018 at 1:30 pm, by admin

The road in our little neighborhood is not maintained by the state, and we do not have a lot in the way of local help. We pretty much take care of things on our own. Our driveway is just off of this road, and it is lined with giant trees. When a storm brought done two of them together across our driveway and out into the road, I decided to call a Nassau County tree removal service to get rid of them and look at the rest of the trees.

I did not have a budget for this. Since there was no structural damage to anything, I figured our insurance would not cover a nickel of it. Read more

The Future is Better Living in the City

Written on February 14, 2018 at 5:30 pm, by admin

My employer hooked me up with thenewfuturacondo.com.sg because I was going to need a place to live once I moved to Singapore for my job. The move isn’t going to take place right now, but we’re already putting all the pieces of the puzzle together so that when the time comes it will be a smooth transition for me and my family. I actually worried about finding a place to live more than anything else because I’ve heard the horror stories about finding a decent living arrangement in Singapore. It can be a real nightmare if you don’t work at it.

My employer used to put up all his people in a particular building because he got a good deal on it, but the location left a lot to be desired. Read more

I No Longer Have Acne Scars

Written on February 13, 2018 at 5:31 pm, by admin

When I was younger, I had a war with acne. Though it did win quite a few battles, I ultimately won the war. It took me a while to figure out how to do that though. I stopped getting the outbreaks when I was around 19 years old, but the toll from the years of having it was pretty severe. I had acne scars on my face, and I honestly thought that I was going to be stuck with them forever until I found an aesthetic and laser clinic for Singapore residents.

I had tried various lotions and creams, and I had gone to see a dermatologist too. Nothing that was suggested really worked, and I just accepted that I was going to have the scars for the rest of my life. Thankfully, I did not let it affect me, as I knew that some women who have scars like that have very low self esteem. Read more

I Feel Safe in My Childhood Home Once Again

Written on January 7, 2018 at 1:30 pm, by admin

I loved the city and home that I grew up in so much that I decided to move back there after getting a divorce in my thirties. It was eye opening to see that my old neighborhood had changed so much while I was away. It used to be a somewhat safe neighborhood, but there are a lot of burglaries now. I no longer need to worry about it now that I had ADT in El Paso come to the old home that I grew up in to put in an alarm system. I feel safer now, and a lot of my neighbors have been following suit and having one put into their homes after they learned that I did it.

As a child, my parents knew it was safe to let me go outside to play in the neighborhood on my own. We lived on a street that was quiet and very little happened. Often, my friends and I didn’t even go home until dinner time and the sun was setting. I moved away after college, but my parents kept that home for decades after I left. Read more

My Wife Told Me to Get to the Chiropractor or else

Written on November 2, 2017 at 4:31 pm, by admin

I could barely walk around the block without having terrible pain in my lower back. I had to do everything a little slower now. I dropped a piece of toast on the floor yesterday morning, and it seemed like it was a mile between where I stood and the surface of the floor. I had to lower myself to a bending position slowly, and I came back up in stages. My wife told me to get to our chiropractor in Santa Barbara that morning or else. I have a boss at work, but my wife is the real boss. I called my work and told them I was going to the doctor. They know my wife and I told them that she said for me to get there this morning. They did not question my decision to call off. As a doctor herself, my wife made proper decisions, and she did not tolerate anyone doing something stupid that was opposite of what made sense and was the proper thing to do. Read more

Singapore is an Interesting Place That Has Interesting Ways of Doing Things

Written on August 17, 2017 at 12:31 pm, by admin

I was visiting a friend I had made in college in his home country of Singapore. He had started a business and was doing very well. It was my first time visiting Singapore, and I learned a lot of neat things I had never known. The first things is that Singapore is heavily urbanized. So much so that natural spaces are incorporated into the buildings themselves rather than setting aside space outdoors on lots where skyscrapers are being erected. Plus, they still use door to door flyer distribution for advertising.

In the cities you will find a lot of new construction going on for residential, commercial and mixed use properties. The buildings have their spaces sold out before they are even finished being built. Lot space is utilized to the nth degree. Pretty much every residential property will have an amazing swimming pool. Usually more than one. Then they will have natural park-like spaces actually built into the buildings themselves. Read more

My Boss Woke Me Up This Morning

Written on August 14, 2017 at 12:31 pm, by admin

Everyone knows that when the phone rings at three in the morning it is not going to be good news. At any rate I was barely coherent at first, but it was my boss telling me that I needed to help him out because he was in Canada, the other side of it, and his son was in trouble. He needed me to go bail him out and find a drug lawyer in Albany NY. I got out of bed and started trying to figure out what was going on, which did not turn out to be nearly so bad as it seemed at first. For one thing the boy had not personally been caught with anything, he had simply been in the same car as the drugs. Read more

Taking on Twice As Much

Written on July 26, 2017 at 4:31 pm, by admin

My wife had to get treatment from a Sacramento chiropractor, which meant that I had to take on her responsibilities around the house. She would normally work from home, run errands, take the kids to school and pick them up while I’m at work. Since she was in no condition to do most of this, I had to take the kids to school on my way to work. I ran some of the errands while I was on my break during work, and afterwards on my way home from work. The kids were brought home by one of the neighbors. Once I got home, I would start doing the cooking, or either just pick something up on my way home from work.

Since there wasn’t a lot of time to cook heavy meals after I came home from work, I had to cook some quick meals using simple ingredients. It doesn’t take a lot of time to cut some vegetables for a salad and mix some items together to make a hamburger style pasta dish. Boxed items help out a lot because they include most of the ingredients in them, with the exception of meat. Although my wife is a better cook than I am, I still think I do a pretty good job.

Taking care of my wife’s responsibilities really gave me a new found appreciation for all of the things that she does. It’s not easy to do all of that, and doing it while working a full time job is even harder. All of the single parents who do this every day while sometimes working more than one job must really feel the pressure. I’m lucky to have a wife like mine, although she tells me that she’s the lucky one for having a husband who takes care of her like I do.

I Can’t Wait to Wear a Bikini Now

I was honestly considering breast surgery until I found https://www.breastenlargementresource.com/breastactives/. Even though surgery is something that I was not looking forward to, it was still the better option when compared to not doing anything at all. I was tired of being the one who had the smallest breasts of any group of women that I would be with. If I heard one more tell me that I didn’t know how lucky I was to have small breasts, I was going to scream. It might be their dream to have small breasts, but it sure has never been my own.

I’m So Lucky to Have Such an Intelligent Daughter

Written on July 19, 2017 at 4:30 am, by admin

My daughter came to me one day and said that she learned how to hack Instagram password and that she had looked at her father’s account after she learned how to do it. I asked her why, and she sat me down and said that she needed to talk to me about something very important. Then, from across the table, she handed me a pile of printed out private messages. I saw my husband’s name across the top of them, along with the name of someone who seemed to be a female. I had never heard of this woman. I was nervous, but I began to read each of the messages then.

The way the day that I learned that my spouse was cheating on me. I had no idea. Read more

I Added a Chiropractor to My Health Team

Written on April 21, 2017 at 12:30 pm, by admin

The first time I went to a chiropractor in Redding CA, it was because my back was bothering me. I had tripped down a couple of steps. While I was able to catch myself before I fell, I did twist my back in the process. It was not a major pain, but it was enough that I wanted to make sure I didn’t cause more damage than what I felt. The chiropractor took an X-ray and determined that there were no serious injuries. After a couple of adjustments, all done that week, I felt much better.

That is the entire reason I went to a chiropractor in the first place. It is not the reason that I stayed though. Read more

I Watch How Patients Go into the Chiropractor in Pain and Come out Smiling

Written on January 12, 2017 at 9:32 pm, by admin

One thing I have noticed when I go to my chiropractor is how a lot of the folks in the waiting room come in looking in distress and leave smiling and talking like they have seen an old friend. I rarely have to wait longer than a few minutes, but I actually like it when I have to wait a little longer at times. The reason is that I keep track of patients who see my Campbell chiropractor and their before and after behavior. You can tell who is in pain. Us folks with back trouble can spot the looks and body language in others.

I squirm in my chair trying to get comfortable when the pain is bad. Others will be seen forcing themselves into a straight or even twisted posture. You will see people stretching muscles or being hunched over. Read more

A Little Sensor in the Furnace Was Causing All Our Heating Woes

Written on January 11, 2017 at 5:34 pm, by admin

I have heard others talk about checking their furnaces well before they need to be used for the season, but that is something that I just never seemed to remember. Even though I never checked mine until I actually needed it, it had never been a problem for me in the past. I would turn it on, and it would fire right up. I remembered then to change the filter, and I was always good to go. A few months ago when I turned it on, I knew that I was going to have to find Sacramento HVAC services to help me out because nothing happened.

I had no idea what to do, because the extent of my furnace knowledge was turning it on and changing the filter once a month. Anything beyond that would require a professional. I had a good run of about ten years of nothing going wrong, so I could not get too upset. I was just glad that it was not super cold out so I could go one night without it. Read more

I Slipped on Some Ice the Other Day

Written on January 7, 2017 at 9:30 pm, by admin

It was all my own fault, because I was in way too big of a hurry. In fact I was so well bundled up that I am surprised that I got hurt when I slipped on that slick spot. I was on my way to work and it was really cold, colder than usual because the wind was gusting so hard that it was nearly about to knock me off of my feet. Right now I am going to have to find a chiropractor in Philadelphia PA. That is probably the only thing that makes any sense. If you go to the doctor they are likely going to take a lot of x rays and they are going to give you a bunch of tests, but they are not going to do anything to solve the problem. Read more

Saving the Failing Toy Business

Written on September 18, 2016 at 4:30 pm, by admin

When I started my toy business, I didn’t think about it in the same way that other people do when they start a business. To me, it was a labor of love, and I was there on the ground floor as all of the toys were being made. Unfortunately, my involvement alone wasn’t enough to keep the business from experiencing financial troubles. When the business reached it’s lowest point, I had to rethink my strategy. I treated the business more like a business and focused on its growth. I made a KPI report to show how the business could get itself back into the black.

While everything in the KPI report looked sound, I still had to implement it in order for it to truly work. I didn’t want any sacrifices in quality for the production of toys in my company. Read more

I Take Care of My Trees

Written on September 16, 2016 at 12:32 am, by admin

I have never liked a lot of trees around my house. When I was younger, a tree was struck by lightning, and it went right through our roof. Granted, it was a huge tree, but that has scared me against trees being that close to wherever I am living. That doesn’t mean I don’t like trees though; I just want them a healthy distance from the house so if they do fall over, they aren’t going to damage the house or hurt anyone inside it. I also have a tree service in Nassau County that comes out on a regular basis and inspects and treats the trees that I do have.

I know some people might say that I am being overly cautious, but I don’t think so. Those same people have probably never seen a seemingly healthy tree get taken down like it was just a twig. Read more

Don’t Buy Casement Window AC Units when Central Air is More Affordable

Written on June 4, 2016 at 12:31 pm, by admin

My dad is stubborn. He has been retired for years and is slowing down a bit. Mom wants an air conditioner at least in the bedroom so she can sleep better. They have casement windows, and a window unit costs a fortune for that type of window. You can get one for a standard double-hung window for about $200. It is about three times that much for windows that open vertically. He said he won’t pay more for the same thing made to fit a different window. I called a place that does AC installation in NYC to see how much central air would cost.

I figured that since they already have a forced-air heating system, then adding an AC unit would not be outrageous. After all, they do not have to run new ducts. It is just putting coils inside on top of the furnace and the unit outside. A little plumbing with copper tubing and wiring a junction box is all the extra they need. They already have a four wire cable running up to the thermostat to add an AC system. Plus, I changed their thermostat for them awhile back, and it is ready to be hooked up to AC. Read more

An Apartment with Everything I Could Want

Written on April 20, 2016 at 4:31 am, by admin

When I decided to start looking for an apartment, I had a checklist of things that I wanted the one I picked out to have. I definitely wanted one that allowed small dogs, and also one that has a large swimming pool. I know most apartment buildings have fitness centers, but I have always enjoyed swimming over riding stationary bikes or lifting weights. I also wanted a nice apartment that would not cost a fortune, and I was able to find everything that I wanted at the the Marq Highland Park apartments that I looked at online.

I was able to look at pictures of everything there on the website, which really helped make the decision that much easier. Read more

Local ADT Security System is a Lifesaver

Written on August 13, 2015 at 8:36 pm, by admin

adt security systems partsI contacted my local adt security company to get a monitored alarm system installed at my mother’s house after my father passed away. She has always had him for comfort and safety even as he aged and became more feeble. Initially it was just a peace of mind thing to help her cope with staying in the home alone now. However, it proved to be very helpful in saving her life when the included smoke detector went off at night when she was sleeping. She heard it but was slow in getting out of the house.

The fire department was dispatched as soon as the alarm monitoring agency got the signal that the smoke detector was going off. They called us too because we are on the call list for when an alarm sounds. Read more

My Boys Needed Physics Tutoring

Written on March 6, 2018 at 1:30 pm, by admin

I did some research on physics tuition because I knew that my twin sons needed a boost in that area to make it more interesting for them. They were doing okay in their physics class in high school, but we are not a family that maintains mediocrity. Rather, we excel at anything and everything we do, because none of us really see the point of putting in only partial effort. The boys told me that they would not even have taken that class if they had known how boring it would have been for them.

That about floored me, because physics has always fascinated me. I could not believe that my offspring did not feel the same way. When I asked them what physics means to them, all they could really tell me was it is boring learning about string theory. I asked them what else physics means to them, and they really could not tell me much more. Read more

I ran into this girl I had gone to school with and she was out with about four or five other girls, they had been drinking pretty hard too. At any rate I ended up going to see a guy that does TCM in Singapore the next morning, this guy did acupuncture on my back. It was really ridiculous.

You Can’t Beat Search Engine Optimization

Written on December 28, 2017 at 5:30 pm, by admin

After using the services of an seo company in Philippines, I’m amazed at how traditional marketing strategies take a back seat to something like search engine optimization. Back in the old days of brick and mortar stores, all you did to get people in your store was set up shop and wait for the people to start coming in. You probably also would have put ads in the newspaper or flyers around town. That’s all it took, along with word of mouth, to get customers and start making sales. Compared to selling online, that was pretty easy stuff.

Now it’s just a huge mess. No matter what you sell, I guarantee you someone else is selling the same wares online, and they’ve probably been doing it longer and better than you have. Read more

I Found the Perfect Condo

Written on December 27, 2017 at 5:30 pm, by admin

I had just about given up on finding a nice condo. It seemed that every single one that I looked at was determined to have more than the last one that was built. I suppose some people want every bell and whistle possible, but I am not one of those types at all. I do want to have some amenities, but I don’t need to be constantly surrounded by things to entertain me. That is why when I looked at the New Futura condo development, I knew within a minute that I wanted to look at more information.

I usually discard new development suggestions by friends because I don’t want to be surrounded by eight pools, three fitness centers, six restaurants, and any other such things. I do want a swimming pool, and I want a place where I can walk my dog. Those are about the only two requirements that I have, and I would be able to have both of those things at New Futura.

I Had My Tattoo Removed

Written on November 4, 2017 at 4:30 pm, by admin

Sometimes people will make impulsive decisions that they may come to regret later. I did that when I was out with some friends about two years ago. They convinced me to get a tattoo, and I was in a rebellious mood so I did it. It was not a large tattoo, but it was very prominent because it was on my lower arm. I started wearing long sleeve shirts to cover it up at work which can be hard during the warmer months. When I heard about a medical and aesthetic clinic that actually helps people like me, I was so happy.

I first went to their website because I wanted to learn as much as I could about this clinic. Everything I read pleased me immensely because I finally found the answer to my problem. That is the thing about impulsive choices. Read more
