I Am Going Back to America

I am ready to go back to the states, right now I have been working with the landlord and doing the house cleaning for Singapore since I would really like to get the security deposit back before I go home. I have packed up all of my things and filled up a crate that I am going to ship to my mother’s place in Long Island. The rest of it is going to go to my new address in San Diego where the company wants me to relocate. I am going to have to be there right after Christmas, so I am going to go home and visit my parents. I have not seen them in almost three years and I want to do that while I have the chance. Of course they already have a bunch of the souvenirs that I have collected while I have been here.

The thing I really shall miss is not Singapore, even though I have had a lot of fun here and I have made a lot of friends. I really loved being able to go to Bali so easily. Continue reading I Am Going Back to America

Time and Manicures Heal All Wounds

One of my close friends had been having some trouble with her boyfriend. They would get into arguments over tiny things and one day, they just decided to break up. I never really liked her boyfriend in the first place, but my friend couldn’t see the faults that he had. Once they broke up, my friend was devastated. She couldn’t eat, sleep, or even breathe without wanting to cry. The only way to cheer her up was by taking her to get a Holland Village manicure. Getting manicures are her favorite thing to do because she feels at ease.

My friend was so depressed from the break up that she didn’t even want to get out of her house to get a manicure. Continue reading Time and Manicures Heal All Wounds

A Serious Spa That Does Beautiful Work

Thank goodness I found Orchard manicure and had them fix a problem I encountered at another salon down the street. I was supposed to get a manicure and they made a mess of the whole procedure. It looked so bad that I actually cried on the way home. Then the pain started up. Has anyone ever gotten pain from a manicure? Is that even normal? Maybe that happened when I was a dumb kid trying to give myself a manicure at home and it happened because I didn’t know what I was doing, but having this happen in a shop that specializes in it?

I really didn’t know what I was going to do. It hurt and I needed the problem fixed quickly because I had an important appointment where I needed to look my best. I wasn’t about to walk into a room full of important people wearing white gloves or something to hide this nightmare, so it was a must that I find a professional outfit who could fix the carnage and make me look nice again.

I’m Able to Deal with Things Better Because I Got Help

I had known for quite some time that I was suffering from stress. I was talking about this to my mother-in-law, and she told me that I should see the same Camas chiropractor who she goes to see. I reminded her that I don’t have severe back pain. She then pointed out that chiropractic help isn’t just for people who get to the point of severe pain. This kind of help can be proactive for those who don’t have severe troubles, too. It also helps people like me who have complained of tight, achy muscles all over our bodies because we are going through a stressful time in our lives.

My wife and I were busy with our careers for a long time, and at one point, we realized that we should have a child as we had planned many years earlier. We had put it off because we were so busy thinking about work all the time. We knew that we wanted to be parents, and we knew that we should not wait until my wife was in her forties. So, we had a child when she was 38 and I was 39. He was born with all sorts of disabilities. We love him dearly, but having a severely handicapped child can be a roller coaster of emotions and high stress.

My first visit to the chiropractor was very fruitful. I told her the background of how I had come to make an appointment with her. I told her about my son. I told her that I ache all the time and how that adds to my aggravation and stress levels. She gave me a back adjustment and did a lot of other things that helped me to feel better. She told me that I should come in once every week for an appointment. I am really happy that she did because it is working.

Living to the Fullest at My Apartment Complex

I am not home a lot, but that did not mean I did not want to look at luxury District South apartments. I still wanted a nice place to come home to when I was not traveling for work. I did not want to pay a lot of money for a lot of space that I would not use though. That is why when I started looking at apartments, I looked at studio apartments only. I know that one day I will be able to enjoy an apartment a lot more, but I am too busy making a name for myself at work right now.

A studio apartment is great for me anyway. Continue reading Living to the Fullest at My Apartment Complex

Don’t Be Afraid to Try a New Way of Doing Things

I applied for a job in North Carolina on a whim. It was just a way to break out of a rut. I never thought that I would even get a reply. My plan was to brush up on my resume writing skills and ease into trying to get a new job slowly. I decided to apply for a job that was out of reach to me. It was far away, required training I barely had and required experience I did not have. It was also a big vertical move. Well, now we’re moving to The District apartments in Asheville, North Carolina with me having a new job I never thought I would get. Continue reading Don’t Be Afraid to Try a New Way of Doing Things

I Got a New Job in Vegas

I wanted to find something new and exciting, but this is sort of different. Of course the job revolves around the fact that I am big and it is not very hard for me to look like a tough guy. I guess that I have the sort of face for it, but you rarely see any marketable value to that. I knew this girl already and one day she called me to get me to help her move. She was moving to these really nice apartments called the Palms at Peccole Ranch apartment homes and I did not really know how she could afford this. She told me how it was possible in a very unique way, she was working as an adult entertainer at bachelor parties and she was in need of someone exactly like me. There were in fact two beautiful girls that were living in this apartment and they were not really in a big hurry to hire me to do the job.

Of course I found out what had soured them on the first guy, he had been too volatile. The job goes like this. Continue reading I Got a New Job in Vegas

Texas is Where My Home is

When someone asks me how I ended up in Lewisville when I lived in New York City for the majority of my adult life, I usually tell them I got bored and hopped in my car one day. Lewisville is where I ended up, and I fell in love with the town. I do end up telling them the truth, but I think my fanciful version is much more interesting! What really happened is my father was diagnosed with cancer. I started looking at Lewisville TX luxury apartments within a week of his diagnosis because I realized that I just wanted to be closer to him and my mom.

I know they would have let me stay with them, but I am just too independent for that. Continue reading Texas is Where My Home is

Does It Have a Community Room?

One of the main things that I was looking for in my apartment community was whether or not they had a pool and a community room. While it may not seem like a big deal, if you are going to have a get together and want to use the pool then Simpsonville SC apts should have a community room near the pool. All of the summer birthdays in my family were had by a pool when I had my house. My kids are in college and there is no reason for me to have such a large home, but I do want an area that I could use when I have everyone over. I would not want to have all of my stuff out by the pool so having a place to put all of our food and our things in a community room would be best. Continue reading Does It Have a Community Room?

Fun and Young City to Grow

I have been looking for a nice city to move to. I am in my thirties, recently divorced, and I wanted to go to a warm city in the south. I have lived through many cold winters and I knew that I wanted to move to a warmer climate. You get to a point in your life where you want a change and this was the biggest one I was going to start. I looked up apartments in San Antonio to see how much rent cost down in that area of Texas. I know that there are a lot of companies based in the city, along with a lot of younger people. There are military and research centers down in the city, so that means that there are a lot of younger people. This is nice for me when I want to go to a bar after work, or when I hit the gym, there are going to be a lot of people around my age.

I think that this is a good place to go and get a restart because most of the places that I will frequent will have people my age who are looking for new friends or people to find things in common with. When you find that you have things in common with people, you tend to gravitate towards one another. I know that there are several groups that get together from the looks of a local app. When you download it, you can find out the different things that people are doing together in large groups. Everything from wine tastings at different bars to having a group hike by the river, there is something for everyone. I think when you live in a city, this is one of the best things to look forward too, more people to connect with.

I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas

Of course I liked this place a ton when I was in college. The reason was pretty simple, it is a big house which was large enough for five guys to live in. That is only a great thing when you are dividing the rent five ways, which basically meant that I was paying about one third of what it would cost me to live by myself. However now I am going to look for an apartment in North Dallas, because that is where I am working right now. It is not really possible for me to commute all of the way across the city since I have to be at the office really early in the morning. Continue reading I Am Moving to the Other Side of Dallas

Getting Ready to Start Grad School

It took me a little while to get ready for this, because I needed to have some money in my pocket and I needed to find a teaching assistant’s job. Of course the rest of it has fallen into place pretty well. I found another grad student who needed a roommate, obviously because that saves you about two fifths of what a single bedroom apartment would cost. We decided on these pretty nice apartments in Rio Rancho NM, he convinced me of this by showing me the swimming pool there on a Saturday afternoon. There were a lot of pretty college girls there and he introduced me to a couple that he knew. Of course since it is winter and I just came from West Virginia I was as pale as a ghost. I have gotten over that pretty quickly, although I sort of overdid it at first. That is really easy here. They say that it is cool here this time of the year, but so far I have not noticed. Continue reading Getting Ready to Start Grad School

The Nicest Apartment I’ve Ever Had

The luxury apartments in Stone Oak are really nice. I thought that it would be too expensive for me to live at such a nice apartment complex,so I was happy to see that it was definitely within my budget for living expenses. I only needed a one bedroom apartment, and I did not need a big one at that. I was able to choose the smallest one, and it still had more room than what I am used to in an apartment. There is a nice porch that I can use that is private, and all the living space is upstairs.

The living room is massive in size. My last one was 10 feet by 9 feet, and this one is 16 feet by 12 feet, so the size difference is really nice. The bedroom is also larger by several feet. There is a very large walk in closet too. I have a lot of clothes and shoes, and they don’t even fill up the entire closet. The single bath is right off my bedroom. Continue reading The Nicest Apartment I’ve Ever Had

Working for an HVAC Contractor

At this point in time I am the bottom man on the ladder, so they have me running errands and doing that sort of stuff while I pick up the stuff that I need to know in order to be useful. This is a place which goes out and tries to get really big hvac service contracts in Manhattan NY. They do all sorts of stuff like that and of course it generates all sorts of paperwork. So they need a big administrative staff and they have to have people to answer the phone and send some guy to fix any problems that come up. It is pretty much what they want to have me do, after I figure out more about what is going on. Continue reading Working for an HVAC Contractor

Started Looking for a New Place to Stay

The landlord is officially kicking us out of the house at the first day of the month of May and so all of us have to find a new place to live. Of course I moved in here after my freshman year and the guys who were there before me told me that it was temporary until the guy who owned the place was able to start renovating the place. Now I have been out of school for about a year and a half. None of the guys who were here before me are here now. This is the website of the place I am looking at right now. It looks pretty boring to be honest, which is easy to believe.

This place is a dump, but you can not say it was not a lot of fun. The place is huge, at one point it belonged to a frat and it is really great for having parties. Continue reading Started Looking for a New Place to Stay

Choosing an Apartment Closer to Work

I have been trying to find an apartment in Colorado Springs for a while now. I think I have finally hit the jackpot. An apartment community that is in one of the more desirable communities is accepting applications right now. I went on their website, and it told me to click here to apply. I immediately filled out an application, because I’ve been looking for an apartment like this for a while. I can picture myself living here for many different reasons, and I really hope that I can move in soon.

There is a play structure for kids at this location. Continue reading Choosing an Apartment Closer to Work

I Need a Change in Location

I am checking out this new place called Renew at the shops today because I need a change in my living space. I was happy with the location of this place when I moved here, aside from that I never really loved the place too much. Of course the rent is relatively low, but there are a ton of problems with the place. It is not a good neighborhood for one thing and then there is the fact that the parking lot is very poorly lit. If you go out on the balcony late at night you can some times see people scurrying around in the darkness. Of course I got a car alarm on my pick up truck, which has about a thousand dollars worth of tools behind the seat in the cab. It sometimes will go off if someone just gets near it, but people are breaking into cars out there all of the time. Continue reading I Need a Change in Location

I Visited Some Really Nice Apartments

I went to look around today for a new place to stay and I found this place that was really awesome, called the Grand Terrace at something which I can not recall. The website is here if you want to check the place out, but of course the problem is that it is way too awesome for my budget. At least I would not be able to do it if I wanted to live alone, which is pretty much the plan I went into it with. Obviously that is a lot simpler and picking a good roommate is a whole lot harder than you would assume if you had not ever done it before. Continue reading I Visited Some Really Nice Apartments

Capella Has a Lot of Perks That I Enjoy

I have lived in two apartments in my life. Neither one of them was very nice, so that is why I decided to look for a renal house in or close to Oceanside. I knew that a house would require a lot more work from me since I would be responsible for my own minor repairs and lawn care, but at least I would not be living in a building that looked like it was going to come tumbling down. I changed my mind when I click here on an advertisement I saw for affordable and nice apartments in the city though.

I was not convinced just by looking at the ad though. I went to the website to look at the apartment complex. Continue reading Capella Has a Lot of Perks That I Enjoy

My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

I’d never been to Florida, but my husband kept telling me that I would love it there. He had visited once when he was a teenager. There was nothing I could really do about it because we had no choice if my husband wanted to keep the promotion he’d just been given, which was to come about with a move there. We started looking for apartments in Tampa FL one weekend when we flew out, and I have to say, I really did like the area! I never expected to feel at home there, but I did.

Ive been around mountains all my life. So, I had never been to the beach, and I really didn’t know what it would be like to live in any area of the country where it’s pretty flat. Continue reading My Husband Was Right About Moving to This State

An Apartment for the Three of Us

My husband loves to golf, so his only request when I started looking at apartments in South End Charlotte NC was to find one that is relatively close to a golf course. Since there are several in the area, I did a search on the golf courses first, because I wanted to make sure we got close to one that is highly regarded by local golfers. There were a lot of great comments about Renaissance Golf Course, so I looked in that general area for an apartment for the two of us and our teen son.

I was not worried about the schooling there, because our son is home schooled. We already knew that he was going to be in the best place to get an education, which is our very own apartment. Continue reading An Apartment for the Three of Us
