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.
