I have been on a really big winning streak lately, which is pretty strange given that I had thought that I was cursed for a long time. I had been doing two jobs, doing physics tuition at school and afterwards, but also working the grill at a restaurant four nights a week at this place a block away from my place. The thing was a real grind when you combined it with a full course load at the college. I was sort of getting a little melancholy to be honest, but there is a great cure for that and she seems to have come looking for me. She walked up to me in the library and asked if I was still tutoring people. I told her that I did it, but at the moment I probably could not find time for another student. That changed pretty soon and I started to wonder why she needed help, since she was obviously very smart. Continue reading
I was not sure what I was going to do with all of my grandmother’s belongings. She had recently moved into a nursing home, and I was in charge of emptying her house because none of my aunts or uncles lived close. I knew that they wanted to go through a lot of the things, but I couldn’t see holding on to her home just for that, especially since it might be months before they could spare time to start sifting through things. I did a search for Orillia Storage so I could find a storage facility that would be able to hold several rooms of her belongings.
It was made a lot easier when two of my uncles told me to sell the furniture or give it to someone who needed it. They were mostly interested in the small items like the collectibles and artwork that held a lot of memories for them. Continue reading
My wife put me in charge of renting the party bus for our daughter’s bachelorette party. I was happy that the party was going to be confined to a single location, and I did not have a problem that the location was going to be on wheels. That is because I picked a party bus at Tripadvisor that comes with a professional driver. I had no idea what goes on at such a party, and I was not sure that I wanted any details. I know our daughter, but I cannot speak to how her friends might behave.
As a dad, I liked the party bus idea because it is a closed venue. Continue reading
I have been out of school for a couple of years now and although I have been doing fairly well I have decided that I want to make more money. Obviously you need to know about computers or technology if you really want to make money, but I have been looking around to find free truck driving schools and cdl training for the moment. It may not be the sort of opportunity that it used to be though. My uncle made really good money and he drove trucks all over the country for decades. At any rate the problem lies in the fact that the world is really changing and it is changing in ways that really harms the working class jerk like me. Already they have cars that can drive themselves, although it is not really so practical. Continue reading
Using moving out cleaning for Singapore really got us out of a sticky situation last month. My husband got a new job and we decided to move to a new building much closer to his job. We spent a lot of time carefully planning out every aspect of the process. I like to be on top of things as much as possible, and I hate anything that screws up my plans. The move went off pretty well, but I totally forgot about having someone come in and clean up the apartment before we left.
This was a big problem because my husband and I decided to save some money by doing all of the unpacking at the new place by ourselves. That meant there would be no time or anyone around to clean up the old place. Continue reading
I remember when you would have to dial into a server via your telephone to access the internet. If someone was calling into your phone number then you would get knocked off. If one of my siblings had to use the phone and they picked up on another receiver in the house, I could hear them yelling to get off the phone, or they would also knock me off as well. Today, when I go on to https://physicstuitionsg.com to take my online class, I find that it is very exciting to know that unless there is a catastrophic event, I will be connected to the internet. I think it is such a novelty. Using the internet and not having to worry about getting your connection disconnected is such a huge idea, I think that my grandfather would be shocked to learn about the evolution of the technology. Continue reading
I just purchased my first home and am overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done before I can move in. The last people that owned it did not leave it in very good shape and I think it needs a mighty good cleaning from top to bottom. This is going to be a big task and I’m going to need some help getting it done. I’ve been asking my friends and colleagues if they knew of a reputable cleaning company in Singapore. They all had a name or two of companies they have heard of but one name was mentioned by the majority I asked.
My next step was to check them out on the internet so I did a search and found their website. They offer many different services including what I need which is a move in cleaning service. Their prices seemed reasonable and comparable to what I have heard others say what they pay. They will help clean everything in the house which is a huge relief. Continue reading
I’m glad that pedicure services are available where I live. Before moving to my current location, I used to live in an area where there were no spas or shops to get pedicures. I had buy items from the store and do my own pedicure. I’m not as skilled as the professionals who do pedicures for a living, so my work looked amateurish. It was passable, but nothing to write home about. The talented people who work at the local spa that I frequent can really do some amazing things with feet. Not only will they clean them and trim the nails, but they’ll make the nails looks pristine.
I like to think of the pedicure experience as something that should be regarded as special and not taken for granted. Whenever I go in for a pedicure, it feels like I’m going into heaven for 30 minutes. Continue reading
Earlier in the year, I decided to trade my apartment for a new home. I decided to go with a home because I wanted more space than I could ever get from the apartment. Before leaving the apartment entirely. I had to hire a service for moving out cleaning in Singapore. If I didn’t have the apartment spotless when I moved out, the landlord would charge me an extra fee to have the place cleaned on her own. I thought something like that was unfair, but apparently she had the grounds to do it.
Luckily for me, I knew just a service that would be able to clean the apartment. Before hiring the service, I packed as many of my items as I could into boxes. I had to arrange everything so that the fragile items would not be in the same boxes with the harder items that might damage them. After everything was packed, I put the boxes in my truck and drove them over to my home. There was a lot of blank space in the apartment after everything was gone. Continue reading
I was looking forward to our holiday party. I own a company that employs nearly 200 people, and the holiday party is a time for all of us to just celebrate the meaning of the season and spend time with our families. Since I am a huge fan of families, everyone in the employee’s family is invited, regardless if it is just a spouse or a family of ten. We have a catering company that provides a delicious meal, and this year I have a cleaning company for Singapore businesses helping with the cleanup after the party.
Our holiday party is being held at our own warehouse because it is big enough to house all of us in one setting. Continue reading
I hadn’t seen my mom in years. I had moved overseas with my husband, and I really missed getting to be around my mom anytime that I wanted to. So, I bought her a plane ticket and asked her to come see me. When she arrived, she had beautifully polished nails that I commented on, and she asked where she could take me for gel manicure in Singapore that day. Gel polish is a special polish that is cured with a light, and the polish will stay on your nails for many weeks. I thought that sounded like a great idea, and I missed doing these things with my mom on a daily basis.
I was a bit of a late bloomer because I didn’t move out of my mom’s house until I was 26. Continue reading
I thoroughly enjoy time outdoors, but I do like to be comfortable. There are various so-called “reality” TV shows out there that are so gimmicky they make me laugh. The one about people surviving in the outdoors is so laughable I cannot understand why it is even broadcast. I am an advanced photography hobbyist, and I have never even considered going afield in the buff or even close.
Instead, I prefer outdoor clothing that will protect me from the things I encounter in the wild. I cannot imagine being outdoors at dawn or dusk in a mosquito area without protective clothing. I have been in places where flies and mosquitoes swarm. Continue reading
My sister’s youngest daughter, who also happens to be my goddaughter, is very into all things Sailor Moon, the Japanese illustrated serial. When her birthday was approaching, my sister and her husband had agreed they would buy my niece her first smartphone and I was tasked with a finding a sailor moon luna phone case. Luna, an adorable black cat in the series, was my niece’s favorite and even I had to admit that the cat was adorable.
Along with the phone case, I had plans of my own for a gift, but it took some convincing to get my sister and brother-in-law to allow me to find a kitten to present to my niece as well. Continue reading
I am going to have to figure out what to do about the plan that I am making, which involves both quitting cigarettes and losing some weight. I figure that I can do both and use one to help with the other. The idea is simple, a friend from work told me how he quit smoking by simply doing other stuff instead. I have been reading some recumbent exercise bike reviews and trying to find out how to get one that is going to fit the plan that I have. Of course I figure that I have a little bit of room in my garage and right now I have an extra TV set as well. It is a pretty simple idea. Continue reading
I didn’t talk about anal bleaching cream with anyone before picking up a tube to give it a try and see if it works. It’s not something you talk about in polite company because it leads to all sorts of unpleasant associations most people want to avoid discussing. Of course, I don’t talk about my primary job with many people, either. I make most of my money working as a web cam girl. It’s good money, and most weeks I make way more money than anyone I know. I make more money than my parents. But you can always make more.
The most important way to make more money doing this type of work is to make your body look as perfect as possible. For example, I always check my arms and legs for bruises or blemishes before going before the camera. Continue reading
I have been thinking about this for a good while, every day on the way to work I go past this place that does this stuff, it is a center for weight loss in Suwanee GA. I do not think that I have the time or the money for that sort of thing, but you really can do it on your own. The simple truth is that while it is certainly not going to be easy, this is something that you can do if you really want to do it badly enough. I am thinking that I should be motivated by very practical things, the simple truth is that losing the weight that I need to lose is not that difficult in the big picture sense. Continue reading
As I get a little older, my everyday life is changing so much. Last year my husband died and now my youngest daughter is going away to college next month. I live in this huge four bedroom house and am about to be living in it by myself once my daughter moves out. I just don’t see the need to keep a big house and have to take care of all of the maintenance inside and outside. I’m getting too old for this. I decided to sell my house and start looking at Stone Oak San Antonio apartments for me to rent.
My house was in pretty good shape and was ready to put on the market. The realtor didn’t think it would take long to sell since I was in such a desirable neighborhood. She suggested I start looking for an apartment to move into. I have a really good friend that lives in an apartment complex right around the corner from me and she absolutely loves it. She suggested I make an appointment and talk to the leasing manager to see if they are running any specials and to also take a tour of a vacant apartment.
So I did just that and had an appointment for the very next day. Once I arrived, they gave me some brochures on the different types of apartments and variety of amenities the community had to offer. I decided to look at a two bedroom unit. I was stunned when I walked in and saw a fireplace in the living room. How cozy that was going to be. The apartment had all new appliances and hook ups for my washer and dryer. It didn’t take much convincing to get me to sign a lease. I could start moving in the first of next month. I’m so excited and can’t wait to move into my new home.
Our young niece wanted to make some money over the summer to be able to get a computer and have money for gifts for the holidays. She told us to not pay her until all the work was done, and to only give her enough to get her computer. She told us to hold onto the rest until the sales started for the holidays. She already worked a paper route for her daily expenses and to save some money. This was additional. I found a way to create paycheck stub printouts online, and I recorded every weekly paycheck for her. I gave her the paystubs to show her how much she was earning.
She wanted us to keep the money because she knew she might spend it. She told us she was getting better at saving. She started keeping some cash in a small safe we gave her for her room at home. She said that was a big deal as she would have just spent it not long ago. She had not touched her cash savings for three months. Continue reading
You can never be too careful when it comes to kids. If you don’t keep an eye on them, they can get into all kinds of sticky situations, especially when they’re with other people their age. Peer pressure can be a strong influence, and unless you watch your kids all day long, there’s no way to truly know what they’re doing. I started using Mspy to keep an eye on my kids when I got the idea that one of them was doing something that they shouldn’t have been doing, and I found out the entire truth.
I got the idea to use this nifty piece of software from one of the other parents who had a similar problem with her daughter. Her daughter was talking and texting with random people that she didn’t know about, and when she asked her daughter about it, the daughter wouldn’t give her an honest answer. Continue reading
I worked on the factory floor for a number of years, and I really liked it. I wanted to move up in the company, though. I knew that I would never be the president of the company, and I had no interest in doing that but I wanted to work on a management level. One day, I was busy ordering some clipboard parts for one of our machines that monitors equipment to make sure they are working as they should. My boss came over to talk and he mentioned that a management position was open, and he wondered if I would be interested. I told him that I was very interested. He said that he would put in a good word for me.
I fixed up my resume on the same night that I had the management conversation with my boss. I knew that in our company, even if you have been working there for a long time, you still need to fill out an extensive application, go through a testing process and turn in a resume when you want to apply for any position. People who have been working for the company already are looked at first for interviews, and only if no one who works there fits the bill, will they then begin to look at outsiders. I am a great worker and knew that I stood a good chance of getting the position.
When it came to interview day, I decided to show them how serious I was by wearing a suit. Everyone was amused by that, I was out working on the floor in my fancy suit when it came time for me to meet the president for my interview. Other employees whistled and clapped. It really made me feel good. When I was done with the interview, I thought that it would be a while before I heard anything, but the president said that his talk with me was just a formality and that he officially wanted me to take the management position.
