Moving to My First Apartment Community

13 Apr

I was checking my email the other day and noticed an interesting email from my parents. They sent me the link to an apartment community that’s located near our current home. I think they were trying to give me a subtle hint that it’s time for me to move out on my own. I opened the email, and it told me to click here for more information, so I did. When I landed on the site, as immediately greeted by large, lively images of people who were having fun in their homes. The people looked really excited, and it made me excited about the possibility of having my own place. I decided to explore the site a little more.

Before I get back, I called my mom into my room. Read the rest of this entry »

Just Started My off Season Workouts

14 Mar

This friend of mine was supposed to work out with me to get ready for football season, but instead he has hired a personal trainer in Denver or at least his father has. Of course he is looking to get a college scholarship, and so am I. However it is obvious that he is not as close to that as I am. For starters I am able to get on the field and I have been for the whole time I have been in high school. At first they would put me in on special teams, which really is not the safest way to make the team. However I always liked it, I suppose the danger of all those bodies flying around gets me excited. At any rate I have been playing on both sides of the ball ever since I was a freshman. Read the rest of this entry »

Finding My Own Place with an Apartment

10 Mar

My husband and I had separated briefly because I could no longer handle our living conditions. We had moved in with his parents after our wedding because the deal on our house had fallen through. It was supposed to be temporary, but that turned into two years. I was miserable and knew I had to leave if it meant saving my sanity. I looked at some apartments in Stone Oak San Antonio because I just wanted to be on my own again, and that is when my husband finally came around.

He did not realize that living with his parents was going to be such a hardship on me, and he asked me if we could look at apartments together. I was upset that it took me leaving to get him to this point, but I was also thrilled that he was at this point. I showed him the apartments at Regency at Outlook Canyon, and he really liked everything he saw too. Read the rest of this entry »

My Future is Still So Uncertain After My Accident

12 Jan

Rush hour traffic has always been a pain, but there was just no getting around it. I wish nearly every day now that I still had to complain about it though, because I spend most of my days just sitting at home now. I was involved in an accident on the freeway, and it has forever changed my life. Thankfully, I was able to bring a car accident attorney in Sacramento into the case once I saw that I was in over my head with the insurance company. I was offered a settlement that seemed to be okay, and that was my first hint that something was not right.

I knew enough about insurance companies to know that they want to settle fast and to their advantage. Though the figure I was given was decent, I just felt like they were trying to get me to sign away any future claims by agreeing to their terms. It could have been a valid settlement too, I just did not know. Read the rest of this entry »

I Hurt My Neck Wrestling with the Kids

12 Jan

I fell over backwards from the arm of our couch. I rolled completely backwards doing a reverse somersault twisting my neck before I then hit the floor. The kids and I were wrestling, and they thought it was funny. I felt like I broke my neck! It hurt really bad, and I ended up going to the ER. A scan did not reveal any damage other than some bruising from stretching the muscles really hard. I did not break anything. However, I ended up going to a Campbell chiropractor because my neck hurt for weeks afterwards. I could feel funny sensations on my head and neck too. The chiropractor suspected that I pinched or otherwise seriously irritated some nerves coming out of my spine when I did my unintended acrobatic maneuver. Read the rest of this entry »

Chiropractor in Mesa for Work Related Injuries

12 Jan

My husband was injured at work last month and is now on disability. After weeks of physical therapy, his back is still giving him lots of problems. His physical therapist suggested that he should contact a chiropractor in Mesa. We did some research and found one that will take on workers’ compensation patients. Now we just have to wait for his first appointment which is in six days.

My husband is a very impatient person and was getting kind of cranky as the days seemed to drag on before his first appointment. He was in so much pain and it was unbearable for me to watch. Read the rest of this entry »

A Pinched Nerve Can Be Very Painful

11 Jan

I have heard people complain of a pinched nerve before, but I never really gave it much thought because I had never felt the pain or discomfort associated with it. That changed last year though when I had almost unbearable pain in my neck when I moved it certain ways. I tried a heating pad, ice compresses, sleeping with a new pillow, over the counter pain pills, and more, but nothing took that pain away. The only thing left for me to do was find a San Jose chiropractor that would be able to see me soon.

I was able to make an appointment with Stevens Creek Chiropractic for the following day. I had no idea what to expect as I had never been to this kind of doctor before. Read the rest of this entry »

I Was Surprised when a Local Appliance Repair Company in Sacramento Was Able to Fix Our Antique Refrigerator

11 Jan

I bought a really old refrigerator for use in cabins we are renovating to have a period look. I had the refrigerator completely disassembled and put back together with a modern compressor that would take new refrigerant. It was working fine, but there was a problem with the temperature setting. I had this refrigerator rebuilt out of state. I called a local place that does appliance repair in Sacramento to come out and take a look at it to see if the could fix it.

Well, the technician was really surprised to see it, and he was not worried about working on it at all. He said that after all his years of fixing appliances, the fancy coverings over the inner components does not mean much. Read the rest of this entry »

The Fall Near the End of Summer

15 Sep

I often procrastinate, and when I do, I can usually still get tasks done without any negative repercussions. This changed when I decided to wait on getting rid of the English Ivy on one of my trees. The Ivy grew up the tree over the years and I would always ignore it when I did my yard work. When it rains, the tree becomes heavier because of the water collecting on the Ivy. This caused one of the branches of the tree to break, falling on the roof of my house. Roof replacement in Brooklyn NY was needed to fix the damage from the branch.

I was lucky that only the branch fell from the tree. The entire tree could have fallen on my home and it would have destroyed a good portion of it. I could have even been crushed under the tree if it fell on my house. Read the rest of this entry »

Learning About New Types of Music

23 Aug

I have been slowly expanding my music collection into new areas, trying to learn about international music and see what suits my taste. Of course this started out when I was working on an independent movie that was directed by a guy from the southern part of India. He was listening to some stuff called baixar mp3 on the internet. I was curious and we talked about it for a little while. He was trying to explain to me what they were talking about, apparently it was some sort of Indian metaphor about rain, which you will probably understand if you have seen many Bollywood movies. I have seen a number of them myself, although they make them over there the way that we make popcorn. The market for movies is ridiculously large over there and of course you have not one audience like we have in the USA, but a couple of dozen of them. Read the rest of this entry »

Gaming on the Go for Free

02 Aug

One of my favorite games to play when I have a little spare time during work is My Cafe. It’s a simple game where you have to serve customers at your own restaurant. Most of my friends have moved on from those types of games, but I still like to play them. There’s something about doing simplified versions of actual jobs that is interesting to me. One thing I don’t like about the game is how hard it is to get diamonds and coins. Unless you want to start using real money, the my cafe cheats is the best way to get these items.

The cheat makes it possible to have an unlimited amount of coins and diamonds whenever you want. Normally a player would have to either pay money or play for hours on end to get the coins and diamonds they need. The companies that make these games design them with monetization in mind.

A Dress That Will Show off My New Breasts

28 Jun

I had heard about breast enhancement surgery before, but I was not willing to go under the knife just to be able to buy a bigger bra. That didn’t take away my desire to have bigger breasts though, which makes sense. It wasn’t just about attracting a guy either. A lot of clothes are designed for women with a nice chest, and I was not able to take advantage of any of those. I admit that I had a bit of low self esteem because of it too, though I did hide that under a humorous outlook as much as possible. Read the rest of this entry »

The Four Steps to Painting My Living Room

05 Apr

When I decided to change the decor of my living room, I decided to have it repainted as well. I could have done this myself, but I honestly did not want to devote the time or energy to such a large project. I also knew that while I am okay with painting, that a professional would make it look so much better too. That is why I started a search for a quality painter in Bergen County NJ, and it really did not take me very long at all to find the one I decided to use.

One thing that really impressed me with this company was their four step process when it comes to transforming any room with a paint job. Read the rest of this entry »

Why I Had to Make My Own Check Stubs Online

31 Mar

Pay stubs are not legal documents, but so many places treat them as such. Not everyone gets a pay stub or check stub as they are also called. You probably will need them to get things such as a phone line at your house or to get anything that involves credit or loans. I work for myself and pay my own taxes. I am not great at separating out money into separate accounts, but I do keep track of how much I earn each week after expenses. In order to satisfy a request, I used a check stub maker I found online to create very realistic looking check stubs. When I presented them as evidence of my income, they were accepted without question.

The information was accurate, but was just presented in the format you see on pay stubs you get from regular employers. I was not going to go out and buy expensive accounting software just to make a month of check stubs to make some bureaucrat happy. Read the rest of this entry »

Using a Natural Remedy for a Health Issue

29 Feb

When my sister was not able to see a doctor right away about the vaginal discharge she was experiencing, she decided to go online and see what she could find out about it herself. The appointment was not for four weeks, and she wanted to make sure that nothing bad could happen from such a delay. The more she read about vaginal discharge, the more she realized she needed to actively work on eliminating it before her appointment. That is how she found out about Crystal X, a natural herbal supplement that helps women everywhere with abnormal discharge.

She read that discharge is normal, but it can also be abnormal as well. Read the rest of this entry »

How My Language Translating Wife Practices a New Language

15 Jan

I have never enjoyed subtitles in movies. I can tolerate it, but I do prefer to watch ones in the one and only language that I speak. However, I have a wife who is able to speak a few languages. She enjoys foreign movies. She turns on the subtitles so I can watch too. Ones I cannot stand at all are movies that have been dubbed in my language. The jokes about the foreign martial arts movies from the 1970s that had the dubbing out of sync with the acting are classic. I have, however, been enjoying Korean movies with my wife lately.

She is practicing translating for her job. She is adding Korean to her resume. Read the rest of this entry »

My Floors Need to Be Kept Nice and Clean Now

09 Jan

As someone who has been lucky enough to never have any health issues that are severe previously, it was quite frightening to have trouble breathing a few weeks ago. In a panic, I called my doctor, who had me come in that day to be seen. I learned that I had asthma. He told me I will need to clean my carpets and make other changes around my house. He suggested I go to nettoyagetapismontreal.org to see what they can offer me because that is who he used to use when he had carpeting in his house in the past.

My physician could see how worried I was after he gave me my diagnosis. He said that asthma is very common, and that as long as I keep my inhaler with me at all times, I’ll be fine. Read the rest of this entry »

Satellite Internet is the Future

23 Jul

High speed satellite internet is a great option for people who aren’t in the same location all of the time. For families who only call one place home and businesses who are in the same location all year round, DSL and cable internet services will do just fine. But if you are constantly on the move, or even out to sea, then it’s stating the obvious to say that a physical connection to the internet will not work for you. A High speed satellite internet connection from Hughesnet in Texas, is reliable and affordable solution for those people who are not stationery for a long period of time.

Another great thing that today’s satellite technology can provide is live event video streaming. With the use of a satellite, you can easily create fun and affordable live satellite-to-internet video streaming. Read the rest of this entry »

Determining Russia’s Future on the World Scene

31 Jul

In the mid-1980s while the world was gripped by the back and forth struggle that was the Cold War, very few people could have believed that within just 15 years Russia and the Soviet Union would go from being a superpower that rivaled the United States, to becoming a government that had very little influence on the world’s economic and political scene. In the same vein, many people have been taken by surprise by the recent resurgence in both economic and political power wielded by Russia. The obvious question that is constantly on the mind of economist, and politicians is what does the future hold for Russia and its influence on the world scene?

One thing can be said for certain, as long as the world relies on oil, coal, and other such fuels as a source for energy, Russia will always have at least some influence on other nations on the planet. In fact Russia’s recent resurgence as an economical power is due in part to the fact that it has been able to supply the world with commodities and raw materials.

Still when it comes to investing in Russia, many banks and investors are still leery, and do not have complete confidence in Russia’s ability to serve as a stable place for their investments. Corruption and other illegal activities are still a major part of the Russian society, and until the government steps in and puts stringent financial policies in place it is unlikely that problems with corruption will be fixed.

Lack of proper infrastructure, is also hampering economical growth in Russia. Russia like any other country around the world relies heavily on tax revenue to build and improve its infrastructure. Unfortunately lack of trust in the current tax structure has made it so that many individuals do not pay taxes, and therefore Russia’s not able to improve its infrastructure in a way that would promote future growth. Obvious changes would need to be made to Russia’s tax structure in order to encourage its populace to do with their civic duty and pay their taxes.

So when it comes to the future of Russia, the jury is still out. There definitely exist potential for both financial and political growth. However this growth will be dependent on decisions that the Russian government makes in the near and distant future.
