Experience the Joys of Florida Living

When I saw the words click here, I didn’t imagine at the time that I was about to change my life for the better. I’d moved to Florida for a job, lost that job, got another one and then started making a lot more money. I lived with my brother and his wife when I first got here and that worked well until they had a baby. Then the pressure was on for me to get out and find my own place. I moved into a real dive and spent some time there until the new job and the new found riches.

I’m young enough that I wasn’t interested in getting a house. What I wanted was an apartment in a very nice complex. Continue reading Experience the Joys of Florida Living

My Friend Found Her Dream Apartment

My best friend was so excited when she sent me an email a few months ago. I hadn’t replied to it, so she called and told me to check it with her on the phone. The only thing the body said was to click here, so I did. That brought up a floor plan of a one bedroom apartment, and I could see why she was so excited. She had been looking for a one bedroom unit in DC for a while now, but she was not having much luck in getting exactly what she wanted.

She had the money to get pretty much anything she wanted, but she was not going to settle for something less than what she wanted. As soon as I saw the floor plan, I knew that she had found her dream apartment. The size of it alone makes it worth it. Continue reading My Friend Found Her Dream Apartment

Just a Bit of Luck

I was coming back from a post college trip with my friends one day a few months ago. We were having one great fun experience before we had to start working in the real world. One of the tires on my car blew out and I had to take it to the closest tire shop to get a replacement. On the way to the shop, we passed by The District apartments. I don’t know if this was luck or fate, but it was just what we needed. My friends and I had been looking for a place to live together since graduating, and the apartments looked like the perfect spot to check out.

After getting a new tire at the shop, we drove over to the apartment building and asked someone at the main office if they could show us around. We took a brief tour of the place, because we wanted to return to our homes and unpack from the trip. It was like love at first sight with this building. My friends and I wanted to sign a lease on the spot, but we agreed to come back the next day after we were all settled in again and had gotten some rest. Thinking about it later that night, I could barely get any sleep because I was so excited to see the apartments again.

The next day, my friends and I went back to the apartments and signed the lease. We went back home again and started packing our things so we could move in as soon as possible. One of my friends had already packed some things so he was ready to start moving in that day. He took his apartment key and brought his items inside, while we helped him. He didn’t have a bed, but didn’t mind sleeping on the floor.

Changing Careers and the Area Where We Lived Worked out Great

I had applied for some local jobs and was appalled at the attitude of many of the employers in our region. I applied for a management job at one place, and I was interviewed in a dirty space. The waiting area furniture was in such bad shape a thrift store would probably not even take it as a donation. I persisted as I needed a job, but I stopped mid-interview, shook the guy’s hand and walked out. I had enough. That was months ago, and now my wife and I are living in Charlotte at the District South apartments. Moving south to a better climate and different job opportunities was the best choice we could have made.

The industry I kept getting jobs in up north was stressed. Continue reading Changing Careers and the Area Where We Lived Worked out Great

The Best Apartment Complex for Me

I adopted my cat from the animal shelter nearly three years ago. I thought she and I would be on our own, but a puppy wiggled his way into our lives not even a year later. When I had to start looking at Kingsport TN apartments for rent about a month ago, I only looked at the ones that would allow me to bring my family with me. Some people mean a spouse and children when they say family. For me though, it meant that I had to be allowed to bring my cat and dog with me.

The two of them are best friends, and I love both more than I could ever say. Leaving them behind just was not an option. There were several apartment complexes that would allow me to bring in my pets, but I really liked Country Shores for a number of reasons. The first is because of the location. Continue reading The Best Apartment Complex for Me

Thankful for the Realtor We Went with

I thought it would take me a while to find the home that I wanted for my family. Even with the help of a top Denver real estate agent, I thought it would take much longer than what it actually did. I knew that we wanted to live in a gated community, and I did not mind if our yard was not huge. We are not really outdoors people, so a smaller yard would actually be better for us. When the realtor I had hired to help us find our forever home showed me the house on a half acre that was on a corner lot of a gated community, we knew that it was the one.

What struck both of us more than anything was the view. Continue reading Thankful for the Realtor We Went with

This is the Best Apartment for the Two of Us

I am not a picky person by nature, but there were a few things that were important to me when my sister and I started looking for an apartment for rent in Las Vegas. We knew that we both wanted to live a lot closer to town, and our parents gave us their full support. We were living with them on the outskirts even though we both worked closer to the city center. It was taking us a good hour to get home when traffic was at its worst, and it was just wearing thin on both of us.

We found a really nice apartment that is close to where we both work, and it is easily affordable for us too since we are splitting the costs down the middle. Continue reading This is the Best Apartment for the Two of Us

A Chance to Be the Lucky One

In the area of the north west Las Vegas apartments where I moved not too long ago, there was a contest going on. An ice cream truck was trying to reach 1 million customers, and he was willing to give a special prize to the lucky one who would take the 1 millionth spot. People were emptying out their piggy pangs and couch surfing to find all of the loose change they could to buy some ice cream. Whenever the ice cream truck comes, I put on my running shoes in case I have to sprint to catch it. The driver can get pretty far sometimes, and I don’t want to miss out on my occasional chocolate taco.

Each day people would come to the ice cream truck and buy something, but leave with a feeling of disappointment that they weren’t the lucky customer. This is the first time that I’ve actually seen anyone look sad when they were buying ice cream. Continue reading A Chance to Be the Lucky One

We Have Both Made New Friends Here

The only thing I wanted when I left my wife was our dog. Even though we both got him together, I always considered him mine. I thought she would give me trouble over that, but she actually wanted me to take him. I guess she did not want the responsibility, but I was very thankful for that. When I began to look at different apartments for rent in College Park Georgia, I knew I had to find one that would allow me to bring my best friend with me. He was the only one who stood by me without fail through our separation and subsequent divorce, and I was going to do the same for him. Continue reading We Have Both Made New Friends Here

The Internet Makes Things Easy for Me

I learned about the place that I moved into with my wife thanks to the company website that I looked at. I am wheelchair-bound, so is not easy for me to just hop in the car and go to quite a lot of different apartment complexes to view them. Even if someone offered to take me to visit the different places, it would take many hours longer than it would take someone else who is not in a wheelchair. So it is really nice to have the ability to see a walk-through of a variety of apartments thanks to the internet.

I did not find myself in a wheelchair until I was 12 years old. I was able to run walk and play just like any other child prior to that. One night, my mom and dad decided to take me out for ice cream. A drunk driver hit us. Me, mom, and dad all made it out of the accident, but I was badly hurt. Continue reading The Internet Makes Things Easy for Me

It’s Time for Me to Move

I never really liked the place too much, but when I moved in here I could afford the place and it was not too far from the place that I was working. Of course back then I would ride my bike to the restaurant where I was cooking. That place is closed down and I have been through three jobs since then, this one is a long way across the city. At any rate these apartments are the ones that I am looking at right now. It is very short drive from my current job and when I went there to check them out I got a good look at the girls hanging out at the pool. Of course that is a big deal for me. Continue reading It’s Time for Me to Move

Settled in with My Dog

I think of my dog as my child. I care of it like any parent would. I got the dog when a friend of mine gave it away. Her dog had puppies and she couldn’t take care of all of them, so she gave me one and I’ve cared for it ever since. I was almost faced with the tough choice of having to give it away for a place to live, but I went to www.ashfordretreat.com and found an apartment complex that would allow me to have a pet as long as it was under a certain weight.

I thought that my dog would have trouble adjusting to our new home at the apartment complex, but this wasn’t the case. Sometimes pets will make a lot of noise in an unfamiliar environment, and in extreme cases, they may try to escape and run back to their previous home. My dog was calm the entire time, and as soon as I unpacked his bed, he walked around it and laid down as if nothing happened. Him being an older dog might have something to do with it. Continue reading Settled in with My Dog

I Couldn’t Afford to Lose My Job Because of Pain

I visited a Campbell chiropractor in the past to help me put a stop to the back pain that plagued me until I started going to see him regularly. It never occurred to me that he could also put a stop to headaches as well. I suffered through those for quite some time, and they were really affecting my work. I worked hard to get to where I am with my company, and it really angered me that my job was on the line because of headaches of all things. What is the use of going to college to get a degree and working hard if pain is going to come along and undo all that you have done?

My mom made sure to spend extra time repeating over and over how important it was for me to go to college. She was not married and brought me up by herself. She struggled to make sure that I had what I needed in life because she was struggling financially herself. She didn’t want that for me. She wanted me to have an easier life, so she stressed school importance often. Continue reading I Couldn’t Afford to Lose My Job Because of Pain

Getting Myself Back to Work

I work in a boarding kennel. The job is very fast paced. It can also be strenous. This is why I needed the best San Jose Chiropractor.

I was at work one day and everyone else had left. We had a large Mastiff boarding with us. She was a very playful pup. I guess she was a little too playful and forgot her size. She jumped on me to get loves and knocked me backwards. I felt a jolt of pain as soon as I hit the ground but shrugged it off.

The next day, I could hardly move because the pain was so bad. I ended up calling out of work and rushing to the emergency room. Continue reading Getting Myself Back to Work

Did You Know Your Central Air System Has a Power Switch Outside?

It can get pretty warm here in Sacramento, so I was really glad that the house I had bought a few years ago has central air conditioning. My husband and I are both the kind of people who want the air on when others are still a few weeks out from using theirs. That is why I knew we needed Sacramento HVAC services when the air simply would not turn on the first time we went to use it at the end of spring last year. While the weather was not so hot that we were going to suffer, I knew it would be soon enough.

My husband is pretty handy and could have looked at it, but he was putting in nearly 60 hours six days a week at his work as well as more hours volunteering on his day off. Continue reading Did You Know Your Central Air System Has a Power Switch Outside?

It Never Hurts to Bring a Friend

I had a shocking experience during a cave exploring trip. I was heading down a cave with a friend and slopped and landed on some small rocks. I was in so much pain after the fall that I couldn’t continue exploring the cave and my friend had to help me back out. It’s a good thing that my friend was with me, because if I was alone, I would have surely died there. I received treatment from a chiropractor in Mesa AZ that same day.

After the incident, I couldn’t help but think about what I would have done if my friend wasn’t there. I had a cell phone with me, but there was no reception in the cave, so it wouldn’t have mattered if I made a phone call or not. Continue reading It Never Hurts to Bring a Friend

Cleaning Up Can Be Profitable

I wanted to find all of the scrap dealers in the area so I could find out how much is scrap metal worth? I knew that each one would have a different price for the different metals, and I wanted to find out what it was for each one since I do have a lot of different ones in the barn. I knew that I was not going to get rich from scrapping all of it, but I also knew that I could make a nice chunk of change for what I did have.

The trick was finding out which scrap dealer had the best prices. I had enough to make it worth my while to go to a scrap yard that is a little further away if their prices are better than ones that are closer to me. Continue reading Cleaning Up Can Be Profitable

My Website Needed SEO Help

I wanted to have a new website for my business. I had one created not long ago, but I was just not pleased with it. While it did look decent, it was not getting me the traffic that I needed. When I started researching different companies online, I discovered that I did not need a new webmaster after all. What I needed to do was to hire a Charlotte SEO company to help me put my website on the map. I didn’t even understand a thing about SEO until I read the website of one of the companies that I looked at to provide this service to me.

Search engine optimization is extremely important for a website that wants traffic. When a person wants to find a website, they usually go to a search engine and type in some keywords for what they are looking for. Continue reading My Website Needed SEO Help

A Bird on the Mind

Late at night, I saw a commercial for a canary songs CD. I thought it was the silliest thing ever, because I didn’t think anyone in their right mind would want to have a CD of nothing but birds singing. The CD was to be used as a teaching tool for canaries that couldn’t sing, which made sense, but still it was a silly idea to me. I went to sleep after the commercial and had a dream about a bird singing to me.

I started to think that it would be a good idea to have a bird of my own after seeing the commercial. I think the commercial had a successful plan of brainwashing me into getting a bird and then getting a CD so I could teach the bird to sing. It would be one heck of a long haul con to pull on someone, but that was just my conspiracy theory kicking in inside my head. Continue reading A Bird on the Mind

A Special Item for the Customers

To commemorate the launch of my game company, I decided to make a special item to give away to customers. I made a digital game, but I also had a limited number of physical copies of the game, along with a statue of the game’s mascot for a few lucky people. I contacted a company to do packaging design in Toronto for the product. They used an action shot from the game on the box of the packaging. In order to decide who gets the limited edition item, I had a drawing that anyone could enter using their email address.

I left the entry period for the drawing open for two weeks. After that period passes, I closed entry and then used a random number generator to select the winners. Continue reading A Special Item for the Customers

I Got the Best Dentist

Even before I went to my first visit at D’Amico & Mauck, I went to their dental website. I wanted to get a feeling for the dental staff before I stepped foot into their door, mainly because I was very apprehensive. I have always been that way, thanks to a dentist my mom took me to when I was very young. He did not have the disposition to work on children, and he actually scarred me for the longest time as far as going to the dentist went. When I moved to Aurora, I knew I had to find a new dentist, no matter how much it bothered me.

When I called to make my appointment, I made sure they knew I am extremely anxious over dental visits. Continue reading I Got the Best Dentist

I Am Getting Ready for Senior Season

The coach called me into the office at the end of last season and told me that he was planning on building the offense around me, although to be honest there does not seem to be that big of a choice for him. Our quarterback last year was not great, but he had a good arm and he could throw the ball down the field. There are a number of guys in the running to replace him, but none of them are very exciting. At any rate I have been looking to hire the best personal trainer in Denver and get in as good a shape as is possible before the season starts. Last year I was one of three good running backs. We were running a variation of the triple option offense at times, some of the time we would split the quarterback out wide and any one of us might receive the ball from the center. Continue reading I Am Getting Ready for Senior Season

Lisa is Going to Have to Relocate

Her boss is not really making it much of an option and I sort of think that he is doing it because he is afraid of her. Of course when you are the king you always have to look around and make sure that no one is about to whack you in the dome and take the crown. A couple of months ago the big boss man hit town and Lisa seems to have impressed him. At any rate right now we are looking at apartments for rent in Grand Prairie TX, which is where we are going to be moving too. I was surprised at how easy it was for me to find a new teaching job, although I really wonder if you can teach in Texas without interference from polticians. Continue reading Lisa is Going to Have to Relocate

I Wanted a New Kendama

When my sister brought her three children to my house for a few weeks, I was surprised by what they brought with them. I was expecting video games, but they actually brought books and the best Kendama I have ever seen. I had not actually seen one in person in years, but I remembered the one that I had played with when I was just a small boy a little younger than they are. My sister must have remembered how much fun we had with them as she made sure each one of her kids had one.

I asked them to show me how good they are at it, and once again, they surprised me. I had been pretty good when I was a kid, but I really did not do any tricks with my Kendama like they do with theirs. I have to say, it is really addictive, even just watching. Continue reading I Wanted a New Kendama

Our First Few Nights Were Like a Vacation at Our New Apartment

We needed a big apartment. We have three children and two dogs. It used to be impossible to find an apartment that accommodated what we need in a place to live. That is until we found the nice apartments at Stone Oak in San Antonio. They accept pets, and they have a two-story floor plan that has four bedrooms. With needing four bedrooms, we also needed more than one bathroom. We got three bathrooms in this place, and the rent is less than what it costs to rent a house this size. Other pluses include the big fitness center and curvy swimming pool. The fire pit with the outdoor furniture around it is great for evening gatherings. We have been enjoying every amenity since the very first day we moved in.

We did not even have any furniture moved yet and we were in the pool with the kids having a blast. We had brought some things over in my pickup truck to spend the night in our new apartment while the moving crew worked to pack up our stuff and haul it over to our new place. The first few nights were like a vacation. We slept on the floor in sleeping bags the first night. Then we used our camping air mattresses the following nights until our stuff arrived in the moving van. Meanwhile, the kids went to school and my wife and I went to work. Continue reading Our First Few Nights Were Like a Vacation at Our New Apartment

My Boyfriend and I Love Charleston!

My boyfriend and I had to look for apartments in North Charleston after I got pregnant and we needed to find a bigger place to stay. We had been living with his mother and his stepfather in a cramped trailer and obviously a new baby wasn’t going to make a positive impression in that environment. His stepfather wasn’t exactly happy that we were having a baby seeing as how we are so young so that made it imperative that we get out of the trailer and into our own place. We looked online for a one bedroom apartment.

Fortunately it didn’t take long to come up with a list of options. Continue reading My Boyfriend and I Love Charleston!

Helped Us Get Our Grow Operation Going

If you’ve got the money and the knowledge to grow marijuana, looking for a property for cannabis business in California is the way to go. The state recently legalized recreational marijuana and getting in at the beginning is a must for growers with the financial means to get up and running quickly. All the people who have been growing out here for decades are going legit. It’s amazing to see it. I know people who have been growing out in Humboldt County since the early 1970s who are know applying for licenses and getting set to make millions.

The potential is absolutely incredible. You’re going to see companies making nine figures growing weed and selling it legally. What’s happening here is what it must have felt like when Prohibition ended. Continue reading Helped Us Get Our Grow Operation Going

I Needed More Time to Do More Things Outside of Work

I’ve made resolutions every year for a long time, and I end up falling behind most of them or ignoring them completely. This year, I told myself that needed to change. I am disorganized at home and with my business, and the continued stress of both was really affecting my happiness. One of the resolutions that I made was to get office cleaning services in Toronto for my office. I had been trying to handle it on my own for far too long in order to save money, and it was eating up a lot of time that I needed to spend on other things. It was fascinating to see just how it freed up my time after I hired someone to help me keep the place clean.

My daughter started crying one evening when I pointed out that I would not have time to go one of her school events. These weren’t crocodile careers. They were tears of pain. She had been looking forward to me coming to see her get an award, but I was behind at work and on the verge of losing an important client. I knew that if I didn’t work that night on the contracts that my client wanted, I would lose their business by the next morning. I had to go ahead and do that because I can’t afford to take care of my daughter without money, but that is when I resolved to make real changes this year.

Each night after work, I had been trying to do a little cleaning around the office. On Monday nights, I would try to tackle the vacuuming and dusting in the front offices. On Tuesday nights, I would do the same in all the back offices. Each of those nights, I would also try to make sure that I emptied all of the wastebaskets. The rest of the week, I would try to tidy up all sections. It was just too much. A cleaning service gave me more time at night with my child.
