I felt ashamed that I didn’t realize more quickly that my mom needed my help. She was having trouble financially, but she didn’t say much at first. But when she started speaking up about it, it took many more months for me to realize that I needed to get a job. I saw a job posting for a part time helper for Singapore businesses, and I decided to apply. I needed to do something pretty quickly to bring in some money to help my mother, and I was very lucky that I got hired rather quickly. My mom has done a lot for me, and it’s only fair that I try to help her in return.
I still live at home. I am no lazy deadbeat, though! I am in college. I am going to school on full scholarship, so my mom does not have to help pay for my school. Continue reading Helping My Mother is a Nice Thing to Do in Return for All That She Has Done for Me
I have had my eye set on working in the Central Business District for a while. Because of that, I started looking at different condo developments that are close to it. New Futura is one that is just now being completed, and it is also very close to where I want to work. I decided no time is better than the present, and I had a headhunter help me get the job of my dreams there. I knew I had to make a fast move on it because I wanted to get a condo at New Futura too.
After looking at the development, I knew that it would not take long before all the condos were taken. That is why I had to move fast on this because I knew that living anywhere else would just be settling. That is something that I am not a fan of. I ended up getting a three bedroom condo at New Futura, and it is even better than I could have expected. Continue reading Reaching My Goals with a New Condo
My parents always told me how proud they are of me because I have always done so well in school. When I gained admission to a good university, I found myself floundering with my physics class, though. I was a disappointed in myself and worried that my parents would feel the same way. My mom was the one who told me to stop worrying so much and that she would gladly pay for A level physics tuition at a company that she knows of. She said she knew that I could make it through my class with a little extra help and that I shouldn’t mistakenly assume that every student gets by with no help for at least one of their classes.
My parents have been instrumental with keeping me balanced and focused. Continue reading I’m Just As Proud of My Parents As They Are of Me
It is really hard to be a young women with thinning hair. If anyone would have thought I would have thinning hair in my early 30s when I was younger, they would have been laughed at. The reason for this is because I had such thick hair when I was a kid. It was hard to manage at times because there was just so much of it. It did not matter if I wore my hair long or short, it was just super thick. I finally consulted with an aesthetic doctor because I wanted to find out if there was anything that could be done to get my thickness back at least a little bit.
I used to be able to pull my hair up in a ponytail, and none of my scalp would show. Continue reading I No Longer Need Hair Accessories

My daughter has been asking me for a new laptop for several months. I have been telling her to ask Santa Claus, but she just rolls her eyes at me when I say that. I guess that might be because she is 14 years old? Anyway, I had already planned on getting her one even before she started asking me, because hers is several years old. I had to use it not long ago, and I even grew frustrated with how slow it is. I know there are going to be some cheap Cyber Monday laptop deals, and I am just biding my time until then. Continue reading The Best Priced Laptop for Cyber Monday
I already knew what I wanted as far as actual apartments in Tallahassee FL. I needed a one bedroom unit that is large enough to where I don’t feel like I am living in a box, but I was not sure what I wanted beyond that. I knew that whatever place I chose would have to allow dogs, because I have two that are family to me. When I came across Parkway Square, I knew that it was everything I could hope for, and then some. First off, the apartment itself is quite spacious.
The apartment I had been living in was barely over 500 square feet, but the one that I moved into at Parkway Square is well over 800 square feet. That is almost twice as much room! Also, they allow dogs, and even have a bark park for them. That is probably my favorite feature of everything, because it means they can both run off leash without me worrying about them getting away since the enclosure protects them both. Continue reading An Apartment for My Dogs and Myself
I was so happy to finally start looking at nicer apartments for rent for Tallahassee FL. When I first moved here, I had just graduated from college and did not have a lot of money. Because of that, I really had to settle for a very small apartment in a section of town that is not the best. I knew that if I worked hard and made good choices, that would not be my life for long, and I was right. I did end up saving for a couple of years so I could pay off some debt, but then I decided it was the right time to finally move into a nicer apartment.
I knew that I was going to look at Tally Square first because it is located just a couple of miles from where I work. I pass it just about every day, and I have always been impressed with how clean it is. Continue reading I Am Much Happier in My New Apartment
When my husband was honorably discharged from the Marines after a lifelong career, we had already fallen in love with living in California where he had been stationed at Camp Pendleton. We knew there was no way we could take the winters of our home state of Iowa again and began to check out luxury apartments in Oceanside CA for a new place to live.
Oceanside offered the very best of both worlds for us. Close enough to the base for my husband to drop by and visit friends and far enough away that we weren’t living in the camouflage world of military housing. Continue reading Finding an Oceanside Apartment for Life out of the Military
I am a pretty quiet person. It is not so much that I am shy though. I just tend to stick to myself, so I wanted to find a place to live that would not have a lot going on there. I prefer quiet areas where there is not a lot of noise, so I did a search for apartments for rent in Colton CA that had positive reviews about the quiet setting of each one. When I looked at The DIstrict, I knew that it was the one that I wanted. It looks very low key but it is extremely modern, making it perfect for me. Continue reading An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me
Of course I have been looking for my own place for a bit, but the apartments for rent in Mission Viejo that I have found are usually too expensive. If I could find a roommate that probably would be something that I could manage. You usually find that it is not really that much more for a two bedroom apartment than it is for a single bedroom place. Obviously you would be splitting the cost and you would generally end up paying about three fifths as much. Some of the time it is barely more than half as much, but that would be uncommon. If you had a three bedroom place, then you could get an even better bottom line. However the problem is that you can not just go out and pick some random goof off the street corners. The person that you pick needs to be someone who can be trusted. They need to have a job and they need to keep it as long as you require him to pay his share of the rent. Continue reading I Have Been Dog Sitting
It took me decades to do something about the bad marriage that I was in. The older I got, the more uncomfortable I was thinking about spending my remaining years in a bad situation. Age is what made me act to do something about calling a divorce lawyer in Schenectady NY to end my marriage. I had married very young, and I didn’t really know what I wanted back then. I didn’t really know what to look out for and stay away from at that time. Now that I’m older, I know exactly what I want.
I fell in love with my husband when I was only 21 years old. At that age, I didn’t feel like I knew everything there was to know. Continue reading It Took Me a Long Time to Do the Right Thing
I wanted to move far away from everything I had ever known. My two young daughters really didn’t care where we lived because they were just too young to understand certain things. I sat down and thought long and hard, and that is when I knew that Vegas was going to be our fresh start. I work from home, so I would be able to work from anywhere, regardless of the location. I went online and started looking at Las Vegas apartments in Summerlin after finding out that was a good neighborhood to raise two young girls.
Even though neither one of them are in school yet, I still checked the school system to make sure it was a good place for them to get a quality education. I was impressed with everything that I read, so I went ahead and looked at a few of the apartment complexes there. While most were nice, none of them could really compare to what Palms at Peccole Ranch was able to offer us. I was able to find a nice three bedroom apartment that both girls really enjoy a lot. Continue reading Our Future Looks Pretty Exciting Now
My father finally decided to do something about his back pain, so he enlisted my help in finding a chiropractor for treatment. I told him to do a quick search online so that I could help him pick one. There were so many Sacramento chiropractors to choose from that my father just threw his hands in the air and completely gave up. This tends to happen a lot with him and technology. Once we were trying to book a flight online and he just became overwhelmed by all of the information on the web pages.
Since my father had essentially tapped out, I took over and used the computer to find a chiropractor that I thought would be good for him. Continue reading They Just Don’t Understand Technology
I was really excited about the life one of my friends lived in the big city when I went to visit him. I wanted to live in the same city, but didn’t know if it was possible. I helped my friend move into a new place, and I got to see some of the luxury apartments in Atlanta Buckhead where he moved to because he took me on a tour. He told me that if I worked hard, I could move there one day, too. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to live there exactly, but I knew that if I wanted a better life, I really did need to move to a large city where there were lots of options to choose from.
I was always a nerd in high school, but I didn’t really apply myself for the first couple of years of high school. Continue reading A Friend, My Parents and My Teachers Helped Me to See What’s Possible
