My first apartment was just a small area above my folks’ garage. My next one was a super small studio apartment after graduating from college. I lived there for two years, but I was not exactly happy about it. I had been saving my money though, building a small nest egg so I could look at Las Vegas apartments and move into a much nicer one. I thought that it was going to take longer than two years because of student loans, but my employer had a really nice signing bonus that helped me tremendously with them.
Since the bulk of my debt was taken care of, I knew that it was finally time to start looking at decent apartments. I definitely wanted something nicer than a studio, and I was even hoping to get one that had a pool and fitness center as well. Continue reading Living Here Feels Like Winning the Lottery
We were looking for a nice apartment, and we found a great apartment. I was thinking we would have to settle for mediocre at best with the money we had allotted in our monthly housing budget. I knew how much rent we had been paying at our old place right in San Antonio, so I thought we could not do much better. When my wife looked at the Regency apartments online at http://www.regencyatlookoutcanyon.com, we were really interested in what we were seeing. We figured we would just go on out to take a look at the place to see how the other half lives, then go down the road and check out another place that we thought would be more in line with our housing budget. However, when we were at the Regency out on the Overlook Parkway in Lookout Canyon, I got around to asking what the price would be on a two bedroom place with a fireplace.
They had one available and we went and took a look at it. Continue reading It is Cheaper to Rent a Nice Apartment in Lookout Canyon Than We Thought
I had heard people talk about depression, but I had never had to deal with it myself. I had no idea what it was at first. I thought I was a little bummed out, but I had no idea that something much more strong than being a little down had taken ahold of me. I was telling one of my good friends at work about it, and she said I should see a doctor to find out if I really had it, and then head straight to get acupuncture in Chicago to get some help without having to resort to any sort of prescriptions. I wasn’t so sure about her directions, but I did head to see my doctor that very next week.
My mom suffered from depression when I was a kid. It really messed with her life and it affected us kids and my dad, too. But none of us knew what it felt like. None of really understood how debilitating it can be because hearing about it is nothing like actually feeling it. I just knew that mom looked sad, said she felt sad all the time and she slept a lot. It used to frustrate us to see how much she slept. Continue reading I Finally Went Through What My Mom Went Through
I got bumped in the back of my car while I was driving an old classic Chevy BelAir. The guy that hit my car was looking at it and was not paying attention. It knocked me forward at the stop sign, and my head whipped back. Well, there aren’t any headrests on that old car, so I got a slight case of whiplash. The car was not really damaged, except for the bumper. I made an appointment with a Chandler car accident chiropractor. I have been to a chiropractor before, and got a lot of relief from pain.
That old car held up pretty good. Continue reading I Bet I Was the First Case of Whiplash My Chiropractor Had Seen in Years
I knew that moving into the country was going to require a new mindset, but it was one that I was willingly prepared to have. I was tired of the crime in the city, and I wanted to raise my family in an area where we could all feel safer. While I wish at times we could live completely off the grid, I know that is unrealistic. That is why I looked at the Hughes Net plans before moving to area my wife and I both liked a lot. We had to make sure that we would still be able to have reliable Internet service since we both rely heavily on that for our work.
We can basically work anywhere in the country as long as we have a good connection and are willing to travel a few times a year for meetings. I had already researched the area and knew that we would not be able to get cable or DSL, but I was not worried because Hughes Net has a really good reputation for providing excellent Internet coverage. Continue reading Getting Internet in the Country
With the FCC poised to introduce new rules regarding the classification of the Internet from an ‘information service’ to one more closely resembling wireless carriers, many companies are going to be forced to change the way that they do business. Adopting new standards of practices are going to place pressure on the larger providers who have long enjoyed a near monopoly within the industry. Even so, Time Warner – http://www.cable-tv.com/time-warner-cable/ – is still one of the most reliable cable providers that any consumers could hope to ask for. With a great selection of packages to choose from and very reasonable prices, they’re set to provide a standard to future competition.
Despite their unwillingness to ope their arms to competition, this is a truth of fact that they are going to have to learn to adapt to the presence of competition and hopefully capitalize on it in some manner. Continue reading New Rules and Regulations for the Internet
We are not really sure if we can afford this place or not, but we really like the theory behind the place. Jenny is really loving the fact that it is probably a five minute drive from this place to her office. It would be about twice that far to the shop, but it is not going to be as tough a trip for me as what I have now. I can skate in through the backroads and obviously you are not going to hit much traffic like that. The house was moved from it’s original site to this lot a couple of years ago. Apparently the power company wanted to build a substation on the land that it had been seated upon, or something like that. Continue reading Looking at This Place Near Odessa
I never really thought much about what it would be like to live alone as a widow. When you’re married to your husband for 50 years and you are always together, you sometimes do not give anything else any thought outside of your own little world. But when he passed away last month, I found myself feeling alone and nervous for the first time in my life. I really miss him. My daughter told me to look into getting service from ADT to keep my home secure, even though I live in a pretty safe area.
I do not live in the big city. My husband and I were never city people. And we always felt more safe living in the country where life is so much slower and has always been much safer. But things have changed a lot over the last 40 years that we have lived in this small town. Continue reading Staying Safe Helps Me to Feel More at Peace
Education is truly something that no one else can take away from anyone, and perhaps that is simply one reason that makes it so valuable. It does not matter where the person is in the world, and many students are choosing to study abroad in fact. This helps them enjoy a different culture and social habits, not to mention the ability to learn another language. Later in life when they do decide to enter into a career, they will be able to live in different nations due to their ability to speak multi-languages. Despite the beautifulness of the flexibility, it will also provide said person with more of an income. For instance individuals who have family roots in Poland, find it that much more important to attend a University there. Finding a career can be a scary thing, for many reasons. Continue reading Find Motivation and a Career Through a University in Poland
