The Dream of Owning a Home Finally Came to Be for Me

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Getting a house seemed impossible for me for the many years that I dreamed of having one. I watched as friends got married and then had the ability to buy a house with their spouse. I am single, so it seemed to be an impossibility to me. I never gave hope, and one day luck came to my door by way of being the first person to learn about a house for sale that needed an extreme amount of love. The only thing needed in order to move in was to get an electrician in Passaic County NJ to come in and rewire a lot of things in the house so that I could use the electricity properly. I moved in as-is after that.

When I learned about the house, I just happened to be out to lunch with a very close friend who sells real estate. She and I had not had a chance to catch up in many years because she was so busy. We lost touch after she got married and went on to quickly have two children. As soon as she was able to, she then got her real estate license and threw herself into selling homes when she wasn’t busy with her kids and husband. Getting caught up was great, and made even better when she heard I was looking for a place but felt I couldn’t afford one. She quickly told me of the little house that I now have that wasn’t even on the market yet.

When I went to tour the house with my friend, I knew immediately that I needed to be the buyer. The place needed so much work, but there was no way that I would be so lucky to be the first to learn of another place like that. Now that I’ve moved in, I am working on projects throughout the place a little by little and it is very gratifying.


Finding a Better Balance Between Family and School Was a Must

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

I knew that I could do my work well at school, but I had to spend a lot of time helping my mom at home a lot. This really took up a lot of time when I needed to be doing my school homework. Feeling desperate, I began searching online to find out what other students due when they are behind in school. The site at was one of the sites that many students discussed again and again as a good resource when you need extra help in school. I did not want to flunk out, and I needed to stay on schedule for an upcoming internship, so I figured I would use their services. I had a long road ahead of me and needed the help.

My mom has some cognitive issues that she suffered after having a stroke about 10 years ago. It really affected her in a lot of ways. (more…)


The Irony of Storm Damage

Friday, September 16th, 2016

When Hurricane Sandy came through a few years ago and barely did any damage to our house or yard, I felt very fortunate. When a small storm came through last year and lightning struck one of our trees, I still felt fortunate since no one got hurt, but I did see the irony in it too. A storm that causes major damage in the billions does little to us, and a small storm that most people were probably unaware of had us calling a company that does tree removal in Nassau County after the storm was over.

I explained to the person who answered the phone that lightning had struck one of our trees, and that it had split down the middle. Part of the tree was still standing, and the other half was laying on the ground. I was really worried that someone was going to get hurt on it because a lot of kids use our yard as a short cut to get to different places, and I was worried that the tree might prove to be a temptation particularly to the boys.

Costs for Installing a New Roof

Friday, September 16th, 2016

We had a crazy thunderstorm that hit my neighborhood earlier this week, and it did quite a bit of damage in general, and unfortunately, it did some damage to my house in particular. One of the larger trees in the yard fell down during the storm, and of all of the places it could have landed, it fell on the house. Now I have to hire a roof installation in Queens NY because from what I can tell, the damage is too extensive to just have it repaired. (more…)


Best Design Schools Cheap Tuition

Monday, September 5th, 2016

My son has always been very good at design and art, and even though I used to want him to be an engineer or a doctor, I have realized that there is no usae to push him in a direction that is not going to lead to success and happiness. Rather, I am looking for a design school for him to attend, because I know that is what he is going to be happiest with, and that is the career path which will most likely lead to success for him.

Anyway, I do want him to go to a school design school, but at the same time, I must make sure that his school is not too expensive. (more…)


Love Poems to Win a Girl’s Heart

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

There is this girl in one of my classes that I have had a crush on for quite a long time, and recently I started to make my move. I think she kind of likes me too, but I think I need to do more to show her that I really like her, in order to get her to actually go out with me. I am trying to make a really good romantic gesture to win her over and so I am looking up love poems for her on the internet to see if I can find one or two that will really work well for the purpose I have in mind.

The Heat Gets More Intense

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

When the heat in NYC hits you, you can really feel it. Sometimes it’s so hot that it feels like I’m living in some tropical country near the equator. If you have a broken air conditioner or no air conditioner at all, it feels even worse. The heat smothers you and bakes you like a chicken in an oven. I felt this heat last year when my air conditioner stopped working. There was nothing I could do for it, so I got air conditioning replacement in NYC. Some cheapskates try to stick it out in the heat, but I wasn’t going to deal with that.

Since it was hot outside, I decided to do an experiment while the new air conditioner was being installed. (more…)


Getting Legal Transcription Done in a Hurry

Friday, May 20th, 2016

We had about an hour of video that needed to be transcribed before court was in session Monday morning. Our staff was gone for the weekend, and I guess was smart enough not to answer when they saw work was calling. We normally outsource transcription, but it was to an agency with regular hours. I found a new place that would have your legal documents transcribed when it was urgent in about four hours. I had to contact them. It was late and there were people ready and willing to do the work. I got them the video, and they sent back perfectly transcribed dialogue of the video that I could print out. They pride themselves on running a paperless business. Everything was handled online. It was quick and easy. (more…)


An Orange Rug for My Husband

Monday, May 16th, 2016

My husband’s favorite color is orange, so I wanted to get him an orange rug for his study. The one he had in there was brown, which was the closest he could come to the color he wanted. I thought it would be easy to get him the orange rug, but my task was a bit harder than I anticipated. None of the local home decor stores had the right color, so I went online to see if I could find any orange rugs for sale that were in the local area as I did not want to pay a fortune in shipping to have it delivered.

When I found The Rug Store, I knew that I had found the right store for us. The thing that really surprised me with this online store is just how many different kinds of rugs they have. (more…)


Free Games for an Expensive Phone

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

My friends always tried to convince me to get an iPhone because they all had them. The phones were way too expensive for my budget, and they would release a new model the next year that would always make the model before that instantly outdated. Finally one day, I couldn’t take any more pressure from my friends and bought the latest phone. It was well designed, and I was starting to think that it was worth every cent that I paid for it, until I saw the prices of some of the apps. Without the free iPhone applications available for download, I wouldn’t have anything to do on the phone other than make some calls, send a few texts, browse a few websites until I get bored.

I like to pack whatever device I have with as many games as possible. Doing this one game at a time can be tiresome, so I like to do it in blocks. (more…)


Hiring a Professional Painter is Smart

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

I knew that I was going to hire a painter in Morris County NJ. I just didn’t know which one, at first. That changed when I turned my search online rather than asking friends for their opinions, because most of them were offering me the names of handymen who were not insured. I wanted to make sure that the person I hired was insured, because I could not afford it if something would happen to someone while they were working on my house. I also knew I would feel safer with a professional crew, which is why I did turn to my computer for more help.

I was really happy when I came across one painter in particular. (more…)


A Product That Helps a Woman’s Issue

Monday, March 28th, 2016

I started having abnormal vaginal discharge about six months ago. I know that every woman experiences some discharge, which is absolutely normal. However, it is not constant, and it is very minimal as well. There is often no odor, no painful feelings, and it is usually a white color. When my discharge started itching and was a creamy white instead of the normal white, I knew that something was wrong. I went online to learn more about it, and that is how I found out about Crystal X. It is completely natural, and many women have been using this method to help relieve themselves of the painful and itchy white discharge that can also have a foul odor when it is extremely thick.

I knew that some type of infection had caused this, but I honestly was not interested in what started my discharge to be so different. What I was interested in was getting rid of it. It was very uncomfortable, and it did give me a cause for concern if it lingered too long. That is why I was so happy to read about the Crystal X product, because it was something I could do from the comfort of my own home, and it also has some amazing reviews about how effective it is.

I read about the potential side effects, and then I determined that it was exactly what I needed. I ordered Crystal X and started using it the same day I got it. The painful feeling did not last very long after I started using it on myself, and the discharge started getting lighter from nearly the first time I used Crystal X. I will always use this product if I have vaginal discharge that is abnormal in the future because it is something that truly treats it!


I Learned a Much Better Way to Look Good

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

As a young boy, I was always so proud of my father. While many of my friend’s dads didn’t take care of themselves and looked like slobs, my dad worked out, worked hard at his job, and took care of the way he looked. I thought he was a pretty handsome guy, and I hoped that I would grow up one day to look just as good as he does. Dad always had a beard, and black men with beards have often had a tough time keeping them looked groomed and feeling soft. I was having that problem myself. It was frustrating, but that has changed now.

Dad taught me that I should use beard oil. Many of the men that dad worked with used it, and it worked well for them. But they did not have coarse and very unruly beard hair like dad did. At some point, when I touched dad’s beard as an older boy, I was surprised to learn that the hair there was so much more coarse than the hair on his head. (more…)


Make Sure You Know Employment Laws Regardless of if You Are an Employer or Employee

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

If you hire even one person to work for you, then you should know about the employment laws. If you are an employee, you should know about the employment laws. Both employers and employees may be doing things they ought not do in order to be legally protected. I have worked for employers who regularly disregarded employment law. If they would not take any issue regarding employment law, what recourse did I have? I have heard of all kinds of stories that have happened to employers and employees. One employee at a company was attempting to organize labor into a union. (more…)


A Masked Man Wanted My Money

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

While on a trip, I was robbed of all of my cash. A masked man with a knife came out of nowhere and demanded that I hand over all the money I had on me or else he would stab me. I didn’t have my wallet on me, nor my cell phone, which prevented the mugger from getting access to my credit cards. I ran back to my hotel room to get my wallet and phone and to call the police. I needed some cash in a hurry, so I went to on my cell phone and got a payday loan.

I needed the money because I was going to use to pay a registration fee for a video game tournament. (more…)
