Speaking Up for the Second Amendment

I’m not highly political, but I do have opinions. I have learned that for many politically charged concepts there are valid points from the often two polar extremes of opinion. Not always, but sometimes. Take gun control for example. I don’t want anyone who is unstable or unable to understand what gun ownership means to be in possession of them. I’m okay with law-abiding citizens who are not felons or crazy owning guns. I’m okay with those who stand up and do things, such as wear Second Amendment shirts that speak of foundational Constitutional rights. Being an activist for something does not mean you are crazy or unstable. It just means you are taking on the responsibility of speaking up to keep a right or speaking out to right a wrong with a louder voice than your average person.

Motion Graphic Commercial Leading to Budding Career

Right after college, I had many options for a new career. I could have went into design or become a doctor. I opted to go into a field that I had interest in: computer graphics. While in college, I learned so many things about graphics but my favorite medium to work with was motion graphics. There isn’t many places to learn motion graphic in Singapore, but the art school that I attended had an excellent program for the course which not only taught you a lot, it also gave you the skills you needed to find a job in the real world.

Many motion graphic jobs are hard to come by. I know I had a hard time getting a job compared to someone who went to college and went for a business degree or anything like that. However, the school that I attended in Singapore put you in contact with companies that wanted to hire freelance motion graphic artists for commercials and internet videos. Not many of those lead to long term jobs directly, but they helped sell yourself to other companies looking for artists.

The first job I have ever gotten from the college was working with a car dealership on a viral internet ad a year after I graduated. I thought nothing of the job other than it was something that paid and might lead to another opportunity. I had went in with my best graphics to show them and they said they wanted something more comical. Continue reading Motion Graphic Commercial Leading to Budding Career

We Needed to Find Group Transportation

When my boss asked me to help with some of the details on a company outing, I was happy to do so. We had just started looking into some team building options, and we were all excited that some of them were not on the company premises. We felt like school children going out on a field trip! One of the things I had to do was get some information on a transport company in Singapore so we could know which one is the best to use for what we needed at the time. Continue reading We Needed to Find Group Transportation

The Club Will Open Next Month

The boss is really sweating things lately, because he understands that he is taking a big risk with this place. It is a real fact that when you open up a club or a restaurant there is a high rate of failure. We are thinking long and hard about how to market the place and we know that the old ways of advertising probably are less effective to our demographic. The question this morning was how much good would we get from it if we buy instagram followers. I never really thought about it, but obviously we are going to have to try to market on social media at some point and you do need to have followers it seems. Continue reading The Club Will Open Next Month

Laundry Can Be Very Expensive

I decided that I was going to try to find a place where I could bring my laundry and have them do it because I was not finding the time in between taking care of my family and the house. I saw that https://www.kleepers.com and other businesses would be able to help me with my cleaning and laundry. I never thought that I would be one of those people to go and pay another person to either clean my house or do my laundry for me. I have friends that post about their cleaning ladies and how they have people come to their house once a week to clean. I did not understand how people did not have the time to clean their own space or even do their own laundry. Continue reading Laundry Can Be Very Expensive

Children Have to Learn at a Phenomenal Rate Nowadays

When we are out of school and into the workforce we can sometimes not notice what our own children are going through as they get an education. I only have my school experiences as a foundation of being able to associate with what our grandchildren are going through. Well, we did not have computers in my school. I am well-versed now in computers, but did not grow up with them. Our grandson has been using a tablet in class since before he could read well. Helping him to advance is why we pay for JC physics tuition for him. The reason is because kids are now learning things at an exponential rate compared to when my wife and I were in school.

I cannot even fathom how today’s kids hold up under the workload of what they are learning in school. Continue reading Children Have to Learn at a Phenomenal Rate Nowadays

They Designed a Gorgeous Patio for Me

I liked everything about my new house when I bought it with the exception of one thing. I have a gorgeous backyard, but there was just a very small porch with a couple of steps leading into the yard. There was not even enough room to put a chair on it, and that was disappointing. Everything else was great though, which is why I bought it, because I knew that I would be able to hire a concrete contractor in Nassau County, NY to create something a lot more beautiful and useful for me.

I plan on entertaining a lot because this was the first time in years I would be able to do it. I used to live in a tiny apartment, so having a back yard like this meant that I could actually have more than a handful of people over at any given time. I did some research on different concrete contractors, and then I got some quotes from several of them. Continue reading They Designed a Gorgeous Patio for Me

I Have Lost Half of the Excess Weight

At first I kept looking for the easy way out, looking around the web and reading CLA safflower oil reviews and all sorts of other things of that sort. There must be a million different diets and a million different products that all claim they can help you lose weight. I am sure that there are things that will help, although some of the ones that are proven to work are either dangerous or illegal or both. For example there is not any doubt that amphetamines will help you lose weight, but they will also give you heart damage and frayed nerves. Continue reading I Have Lost Half of the Excess Weight

I Went out Hunting This Morning

Of course I really do not know too much about it, so I was not surprised that Jennifer laughed at me and the hunting pants that I bought at the sporting goods store. Of course they were the wrong kind for the season and I was burning up almost at once. By the time that the sun came up I was just absolutely blazing hot and I was tempted to walk around in my boxer shorts after awhile. At any rate she taught me how to use a shotgun and how not to shoot yourself with it, which is the most important part of. I took my camera with me and I got a couple of good photographs of wildlife. We saw quite a few deer and all of them were quite a long ways off and none of them wanted to get close to us. It was a big deal to her, but I was not really that interested in shooting a deer.

For her it was about the meat and eventually we decided to go fishing. Continue reading I Went out Hunting This Morning

We Needed Someone to Help Us Because We Failed

After growing tired of living in a large city with too many people, my wife and I decided to move to a smaller city nearby. We bought an owner-financed home, and we love it. However, right after we moved in, we learned that we needed to get some quick rodent control in Chandler to help with a rodent infestation. We are not sure how it happened, but there was nothing in the attic when we first had the home inspected before we purchased it. We moved in about 30 days after we signed all the contracts, and the rats had moved in during that short time.

We always lived in apartments prior to buying this house that we are now living in. So, we never had to worry about taking care of a place by ourselves. Continue reading We Needed Someone to Help Us Because We Failed

Having Fun and Learning Too

When I was out looking at yard sales not long ago, I came across one house that had a lot of children’s toys for sale. I found a really neat puzzle for young kids, but it was not in the best of condition. I really liked it though, so I went home to do an online search to see if I could find either the same one of a very similar one for my twin daughters. What I ended up getting for them is an Under the Sea floor puzzle, which is nice in so many ways.

First off, the design is beautiful. It shows a small section of the sea bed, and all the creatures that call that particular place home. There are over ten different sea creatures, including a whale, a shark, a clam, fish, and so many others. Continue reading Having Fun and Learning Too

Getting Started in Business Fast with a Turnkey Building Solution

We got a business idea, had a rural property and needed a building to get started in fast. We looked at turnkey building projects for a fast way to get a structure built, and steel was our best option. We might have made the mistake of going with a masonry and wood structure if we had not been so pressed for time. We are glad that we had to get moving fast on the building part as our steel building is absolutely perfect for our needs. We got it in the color that we wanted. It does not look like your typical generic steel building. Our production area was ready to go fast. We had the office and other rooms built inside really quick after the building went up.

The building phase was pretty quick. Continue reading Getting Started in Business Fast with a Turnkey Building Solution

Home Services for My Aging Parents

I did a search for Boynton Beach senior center and home health care not long ago. My parents are both in their 80s, and they are actually doing quite well for their age. They do need some help with some things though now that they are finally starting to slow down a bit. I knew that neither one of them are ready to move into a retirement center. They value their independence too much, plus they really don’t belong in a place like that. They are still quite active, it is just that they are slowing down a little more.

I wanted to get them some help, which is why I started inquiring about home health services. I liked that there is a wide range of help that is available. Continue reading Home Services for My Aging Parents

I Needed Help with My Taxes

I never imagined myself needing a Los Angeles tax lawyer, but then again, I never imagined myself getting into trouble with the IRS either. I have been working for myself for nearly 10 years now, and I have always paid my taxes on time up until two years ago. I understand the severity of not paying taxes, but that is not why I paid them so faithfully. I use resources that this country provides every single day, and I want to do my part to make sure the roads are maintained, that our defense is funded, that our elderly are taken care of, and so many other things.

I actually take pride in paying my taxes, which is why it was so devastating to not be able to pay them two years in a row. My husband was in a horrific car accident that changed our lives so much two years ago. He ended up needing full time care for nearly a year, and the expense of that was astronomical. I started paying less on my taxes until I just wasn’t paying anything at all. Continue reading I Needed Help with My Taxes

I Need a Fresh Start

Last week, I contacted a divorce lawyer in Albany NY. Though everyone told me to not rush into marriage, I ignored all of them. I didn’t listen to my parents or two sisters, and I got upset with my best friend when she couldn’t see in my boyfriend what I saw. It turns out that love was not so much blind in my case but rather fleeting. I knew that I loved the guy I met in my economics class from our second time to have coffee together. He was everything I wanted, and he acted like I was everything he had dreamed of too.

We had a super fast courtship. We dated just for five weeks when he told me he could not live without me. Continue reading I Need a Fresh Start

I Needed to Make My Dreams Come True by Moving

I find that a lot of people are pretty happy wherever they are. What their surroundings are like doesn’t really mean all that much to them. I wish it were that easy for me because I love and crave beautiful places. This is why I am looking for the best apartments in Colorado Springs to live in. I don’t know anyone in the area, so I will be living by myself. I am very happy with that. Once I get to know people, maybe I will find a roommate. But for now, I’m just happy that I’m going to be living in an area that is beautiful to look at every single day.

Ever since I was a child, I had found on many vacations with my family too beautiful places that I could never forget. As I Grew Older, that same interest in places that are beautiful never went away. I found myself often daydreaming about moving, and I did this for years. Continue reading I Needed to Make My Dreams Come True by Moving

Finding a Short-Term Apartment for Work

My employer asked me to temporarily move to Tallahassee to complete a project at one of our branches. I’m always up for a challenge, but the idea of having to find an apartment for a short duration seemed like the ultimate challenge. Since we are small company, I would be responsible for finding my own apartment. After doing a bit of searching online for Tallahassee apartments for rent, I was lucky enough to come across one property that offered a short-term lease. I didn’t think it would be that easy, but I was pleasantly surprised.

After taking a closer look, I learned that not only would this apartment be flexible in terms of the duration of my stay, but it would really be a great place to live. Continue reading Finding a Short-Term Apartment for Work

Apartments Aren’t What They Used to Be

Fresh out of college and looking at living options, my friends and I decided on living together for a few years until we had our finances in order. One friend suggested moving into an apartment over a house. When I would think about the apartments in Tallahassee, I would always picture the rundown looking apartments that had been around since the 70s and without much renovation. My friend had a different mental image in mind, as he knew of some pretty decent looking apartments that had modern visuals and build quality, while also being in the perfect spot for young people to hang out.

The apartments we were looking at were pretty nice, but we couldn’t make a decision just by looking and reading about them alone. He had to see them in person, so we took a day out of each week to look at the ones on our list. We even took some pictures of the apartments when we went inside to compare them to the images on the websites that featured them. These apartments really had a younger audience in mind, featuring things like swimming pools and fitness centers. When my parents live in an apartment when they were younger, they had none of these things.

After seeing all of the apartments, we discussed which ones would be the best place to live. We really couldn’t come to an agreement on any of them at first, because everyone had their own preference for a living spot. We had to think about which ones were similar enough to each other that if we eliminated one, the other wouldn’t be missed. Once we did that, we left only the ones that were closest to us, as distance was a factor. We all eventually came to an agreemetn and moved in.

I Jumped on the Chance to Start New in a New Location

My company likes to hold our company conferences in different cities each year. This year, the annual conference was held in Vegas. We had so much fun each night after our work events were over. Before I left the city to fly back home, I wanted to do a quick check of some apartments in Summerlin for Las Vegas residents. I was curious about Summerlin, the planned community that I had heard about within the city of Vegas. I knew that our company has a location in the city, and I had been looking to make a change in my life. I knew that securing that management position would mean that I would be able to move there with no problems.

I used to really like where I lived for 10 years, but I often get bored with staying in one location. I wanted to do something different with my living arrangements. Continue reading I Jumped on the Chance to Start New in a New Location

Moving Back to Charlotte on My Own Terms

I wanted to find apartments near 28217 Charlotte NC because I’m returning to the state after having lived elsewhere for about three decades. I’m moving back because of my elderly parents, who remained in the state after I left but are now having problems getting around. The thought of putting them into a nursing home is out of the question, but I also couldn’t imagine moving back into their house. I value my independence too much to put up with some of their quirkier habits, so I needed to find an apartment in the same area code so that I would be close to them.

It looks like the apartment game in Charlotte has really gone up since I lived here. Luxury living arrangements abound in the city, but I found what I consider to be the best place imaginable after talking to Mom and Dad and doing some research online.
