I Had to Do What I Could to Make Myself More Interesting

I knew that, in order to further my career, I needed to make the big move to the city where so many political things happen. I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly and easily, though. I applied for a job with a high ranking government official, and he picked me to be his assistant! He told me that his office would help me to move into one of the many Washington DC luxury apartments in the area, and that part of the high salary that I would be making would be more than enough money to pay for a luxury pad. After I got the phone call telling me that I got the job, I got us a phone and actually pinch myself. It almost seems too good to be true.

Most people seem to have a lot better luck in life than I do. I have to scratch and bite for everything good that happens to me. For other people, it seems to come so much easier for them. I’m not really sure why that is the case. Continue reading I Had to Do What I Could to Make Myself More Interesting

Moving into Luxury Living in Florida

I started looking into apartments for rent in Miami Beach right away after my boss told me I got a big promotion that most of the people in the office have been chasing for months. When I say a big promotion, it really is a big promotion. My salary increased by double, and I get a lot of perks and much better benefits. But for me the promotion meant I could finally move out of my parents’ home and get my own place. I’d put it off for a long time because it’s expensive and I have student loans.

Now that the loans won’t be a problem, I could focus on finding a really nice place to live in the city. The excitement I felt about getting out of the basement and into my own apartment was profound as I started researching apartment units in the city. Continue reading Moving into Luxury Living in Florida

My Folks Are Moving Closer to Me

I was really happy when my parents told me they were going to move down here to North Carolina. My father has traveled extensively for his work, so they have moved every couple of years. That was nice in some ways as they really got to experience life in so many different ways, but it did not allow them to put down any roots either. When he told me he wants to retire, I was happy. When he said he wanted to look at apartments in South Charlotte, I was thrilled.

I was hoping they would come live closer to where I am, because I mainly only get to see them on video chat. Continue reading My Folks Are Moving Closer to Me

Country Shores is Now My Home

I looked at so many different Kingsport apartments for rent that they were all starting to look alike to me. I already knew that Country Shores was the best one of the bunch, but I wanted to make sure that I was not overlooking any others that could compete. As it turned out, none could because Country Shores really does have it all. They have the most affordable rent of all the complexes I looked at and liked, which is huge. I also liked that they actually do pay some of the tenant utilities.

I don’t have to pay for trash removal, lawn care of snow removal, and they treat for pests on a regular basis. The last two places I lived also offered those services, but they included them in their price of the unit, which made the overall price go up. Continue reading Country Shores is Now My Home

I Got to Meet Some MLB Players

I sort of lucked out on this, because I could not have afforded if my Dad’s boss had not decided to figure out how to make it into a tax write off. I am not sure how he did it or it it is really kosher, but that is his problem. He knows that I really want to become a Major League ball player some day and I have some scholarship offers now, the best one for Colorado State. At any rate he got me place at the Elite Performance baseball camp and there were a lot of professional ball players there. This place claims that they are working with hundreds of pro athletes. Continue reading I Got to Meet Some MLB Players

Everything We Want in a Home

My brother had an opening in his company, and he gave my husband an offer that was just too good to refuse. My brother had been wanting my husband to join him for a couple of years, but he had been right in the middle of a huge work project that he didn’t want to abandon. Once it was over though, we talked about it and decided that this was the best move for our family. We stayed in my brother’s guest house so I could take my time looking at the Denver real estate market.

Though we had been to Denver numerous times in the past, I still did not want to jump right into a new home there. Continue reading Everything We Want in a Home

I Am in Las Vegas Now

I got here about two weeks ago and so far things are going really well. My friend from back home had everything lined up for me. In fact I am stepping right into the life of this other guy, the two of them used to work in the same place and the two of them shared an apartments for rent in Las Vegas NV. The other guy was apparently supposed to be taking his crazy pills, the sort that stop you from acting crazy. At any rate he stopped taking these pills and the crazy came bursting out like a torrent. Continue reading I Am in Las Vegas Now

My Mom Now Lives Minutes from Me

My mom had me when she was really young, so people often think she is my older sister. On my bad hair days, they actually think she is my younger sister! When she told me that she wanted to move to Vegas, I got pretty excited. She has come out here to see me at least two or three times a year, and the city has grown on her the same way it has me. She told me that she didn’t want to stay in my apartment, that she had looked at different apartments in Las Vegas before making this decision.

While she knew she was welcome to stay with my husband and myself, I also understood that she would feel like she was intruding. She told me that she really liked Bloom apartments, which made me scream a little with joy because that is just three minutes from where I live. You have to understand, my mom is so important to me, and knowing she is just minutes away is a dream come true for me. I also like the complex she wanted to move into. Continue reading My Mom Now Lives Minutes from Me

A Wonderful Place Found Entirely by Luck

My friends and I were looking for a place to live for the new semester and couldn’t find anything good. We decided to pool our resources together and split an apartment because we thought it would help us get a nicer place than if we tried to get one on our own. All of the other college students must have had the same idea, because they were taking up all of the apartments left and right. It was by sheer luck that we were able to move into one of the apartments for College Park GA, but it worked out in the end, because the place we moved into was one of the best options.

The only reason we found our current apartment is because one of my friends accidentally clicked on a website that told him about the apartments. Once he saw his mistake, he was about to exit the page, but then I stopped him and kept reading. The more we read, the more we realized that we had possibly found the apartment of our dreams. We hopped in the car and went to see the apartments in person. A quick tour and a chat with the owner convinced us that we had found our new home. It’s a good thing they still had some vacancies left.

After class, my friend and I can’t wait to get back to the apartments so we can just hang around. Sometimes the other guys will bring a female friend back with them and only say they’re going to study, but we both know they’re trying to get something started. It doesn’t always work out in their favor, but they keep trying anyway. I’ve had my share of failures in that department too, but I don’t worry about it too much, because it happens to the best of us.

The Perfect Apartment Located Near School

Searching for the apartment in Baltimore has been a really fun experience for me. I’ve gone to school here for the last several years, but I’ve always lived in a dorm. Be able to search for apartments in the area has really opened my eyes to the different communities and vibes that vary by neighborhood. Towson MD apartments really have a lot to offer, so I’m really excited about moving out on my own. The fact that it’s my senior year is what is really driving me to make this change. I know that once I graduate, I’m going have to be on my own, so I figured that I would get a head start and try it out now.

My favorite apartment complex so far has all the amenities that I’ve been looking for. Continue reading The Perfect Apartment Located Near School

Moving from a Noisy Apartment to Much Quieter Apartment Homes in McDonough

We had lived in an apartment complex that switched its rental policy to offer very short term leasing. There was a lot of workers who moved in for a few months out of the year who were from other states. Some companies rented apartments and stuck as many people in it that would be allowed. I think it went over the limit in more than one apartment. The noise on the weekends was out of hand, so me, my wife and our two girls started to visit property that had apartment homes that were in a much quieter environment. We wanted a place that was mostly families. Our place was turning into a frat house, and we could not stand it.

I asked the management of our old place to let us out of our lease due to the noise. Continue reading Moving from a Noisy Apartment to Much Quieter Apartment Homes in McDonough

Home for the New Semester

Before the start of my junior year of college, I made a lot of money by working as a lifeguard on a fancy boat owned by some rich guy who works in the oil industry. He was having parties on his boat during the summer, and the boat has its own pool. He paid me and another guy a lot just to make sure that no one drowned at the pool. I put some of this money to finding a place to live off campus. I found a website with a list of good apartments in the area and decided on one that looked amazing. It had the right amenities, cost, and amount of room.

Although I didn’t bring that much with me when I moved in, it was still pretty hard because I was moving all of the heavy items. Continue reading Home for the New Semester

Falling out of a Car Will Hurt You!

I sought out the services of a chiropractor in Campbell after a mishap I had with my husband while backing out of our garage. We were in a hurry to get to our son’s graduation service and both of us had our minds elsewhere. My husband was in such a rush to get to the school that he started backing out of the garage before I even had the car door shut. My arm got caught in the seat belt thing and the next thing I knew I toppled right out of the car and hit the pavement hard. I’m lucky the car didn’t roll over me.

I managed to get back into the car and made it to the ceremony, but my shoulder hurt something fierce. Continue reading Falling out of a Car Will Hurt You!

The Chiropractor Helped My Son

My wife and I ended up taking our son to a chiropractor in San Jose after he fell out of the tree house I’d built for him for his birthday. I tried to make the structure as safe as possible for a young boy and his friends, out of concern for a lawsuit if one of his friends fell but also just because I know what kind of mischief young kids can get into. Sure enough, someone fell. It sounds bad to say it was our son who took a spill, but at least it means we wouldn’t be sued by a neighbor.

Our son landed on his arm and was in a good deal of pain, enough that we decided to take him to the emergency room just to get him checked out. The doctor said nothing was broken and that it was likely just a bad sprain and to keep an eye on him. We thought he did get better until the day I noticed he seemed to be coddling his arm. He said he felt fine, but I could tell that wasn’t true. Continue reading The Chiropractor Helped My Son

Losing My Cool: the Day My Freezer Broke

I like to watch sales and stock up on meat when the price is right. Needless to say, my freezer is usually packed to the brim. Having the freezer go out would cost me a ton of money. Having a reliable appliance repair in Sacramento was a must. I need to know I have someone I can trust. Someone who fixes things without a hassle.

I went to get out a few packs of ground beef one evening for dinner and realized that it was defrosting. I did not have a lot of money to spend to buy a new one so I knew I would need a repair guy.

I quickly moved everything to a cooler to try to salvage what I could. I called a few places to see what the cheapest and best option would be.

After a few calls,I found a place for appliance repair in Sacramento that had reasonable prices. They seemed to know what they were doing and I trusted they would get it fixed in a timely manner. We arranged a time that they could meet me at the house.

The repair guy was dressed professionally and was very friendly. He arrived right on time. He checked it and told me exactly what the problem was. He spent around an hour working on the freezer and it was back to normal. Most of my food was able to be saved and I was able to put it all back in the freezer quickly.

I am keeping their number in my phone in case something else decides to go out. It is such a huge relief to know that I have a business to turn to when something is broken. It is such a money saver to have the appliances repaired rather than just going out and buying something new.

My Neck Was Sore when I Woke Up

I knew that I needed to visit a Mesa chiropractor after waking up with pain in my neck. I used to see one regularly after I was in a car accident years ago, so I knew the benefits of seeing one. I also knew when I woke up that this was not a normal pain at all. I had twisted my neck the night before when I was playing a game of ball with some neighborhood kids, but I thought that it was nothing that an ice pack along with a good night sleep wouldn’t cure.

When I woke up, I knew that it was something more than just a stiff neck. The pain had gotten a lot worse through the night, and it just did not feel right. Continue reading My Neck Was Sore when I Woke Up

A Unique Gift for Those Wedding Events

When my daughter finally decided to tie the knot, the real preparations began in earnest. Anyone planning a wedding knows how hectic the entire process is. All the preparations, the dress, the invitations, the seating arrangements, etc. are a real pain in the you know what. It takes weeks of careful planning and diplomacy to make sure everything is just right. Even the napkins and wedding favors have to be just perfect. Seeing as how my daughter is big into environmental politics, we decided to investigate the idea of wedding favour seed packets.

Traditionally wedding favours are some boring trinket that no one really appreciates and are forgotten about shortly after the wedding comes to a close. We decided to give my daughter’s some pep with seed packets. It’s actually a really neat gift in that it’s something that lasts for long after the wedding is over. These packets contain seeds so that people can take them and plant them later wherever they want. Continue reading A Unique Gift for Those Wedding Events

Apartment Listings for Alamo Heights

My landlord just slipped a letter under my door today, and it is about renewing my rent. The letter thanked me for being a tenant of the apartment complex, and said that they would love to keep me. However, I was pretty insulted by what followed that. It said that I had a limited time to act to renew my lease at a discounted rate over the rental rates for the next year. I am currently looking at listings for Apartments Alamo Heights and trying to find out some information about pricing for an apartment somewhere nearby that is similar in size to that one that I am currently in, because I am definitely not going to renew my lease and stay here for another year.

I really feel insulted by the letter, because it starts out pretending like they are going to do right by me for being a tenant and a valued customer. However, the discounted rate that they are proposing I renew my lease for, is almost 100 dollars more a month than what I am currently paying for my rent. Now I could understand if my rent went up a bit from year to year, when I renew my lease, but the amount of money that it is jumping up is just simply unacceptable to me, and that is why I am going to have to find somewhere else to live for the next year.

However, I think that I am more annoyed by the fact that they have the nerve to call this price increase a discount, when it is such a large increase. I guess they are going to charge new tenants even more than what they would charge me to renew my lease, but I do not really believe that. I think that they just raise your rates as much as they can and hope you’ll stay out of convenience.

It Was Impossible for Me to Do Everything on My Own

I can’t do everything by myself at work. I just can’t. That was a hard lesson that I needed to learn this year. I started a one-man business in the hopes of getting ahead, and then I attempted to handle as much of the work alone that I could. That was not the wrong answer in the beginning, and that’s because I could not afford to hire anyone else. As the company grew, it finally became incredibly clear to me looking for accountants in Bristol and an advertising company as well were both things that I needed to do immediately. There was no way to put those things off anymore after I hit a breaking point.

I can’t say that I have been someone who has control issues in life. I have very much been pretty good about working with a team of people since I can remember. But that changed a bit when the business belong to me, rather than someone else. Continue reading It Was Impossible for Me to Do Everything on My Own

How Porcelain Veneers in Denver Changed Me for the Better

I really disliked smiling. Not because I was mean, but because I had bad teeth. My tooth enamel was spotty. It had some really white areas, and then it was almost transparent in others. This let the dingy color of the dentin show through. So, even though my oral hygiene was impeccable, my teeth looked dull and yellowish. I wanted to keep my teeth, but I wanted them to be shiny and white. I found a dentist who does porcelain veneers in Denver to fix my problem. This way I could keep my teeth and still get that nice bright white smile I was looking to have.

Getting my smile fixed was an investment in me. It was all the makeover I wanted or thought I needed. I was happy with my hair and clothes, and I had no issues with my weight. I just wanted a nice smile. I would see other people with teeth that looked perfect, and I was ashamed to smile around them. I had a real negative complex about my teeth. Continue reading How Porcelain Veneers in Denver Changed Me for the Better

We Had to Relocate to South Carolina

My son was not happy about the two of us moving, but I really had no choice in the matter since my work was relocating to South Carolina. I understood how hard it would be for him to adjust to a new school, especially since he was a sophomore in high school. He understood that this was necessary, so he did not cause too much of a fuss about it. I even told him to start looking at apartments for rent in North Charleston SC so he could help us find an apartment that the two of us would be happy with.

I showed him a website that was recommended to me by my boss, and I can see why. Continue reading We Had to Relocate to South Carolina

Had to Find a New Apartment

It is not as though I was really that enthralled with the place, especially since I had found a new job in the area of Grand Prairie, which is a long way off and a difficult commute. However I would not have moved if Andy had not gotten evicted. In fact I knew this guy was flaky for a long time, but he always paid his share of the rent and no one could have guessed he would do something this weird. At any rate I got to looking around and I think this place ( www.forumatgrandprairie.com ) looks pretty good for what I want. The thing that I need is a new roommate, perhaps it would be better if he were not some sort of voyeur who likes to spy on college girls. In this case it is really hard to say that Andy was doing too much differently from a lot of other guys aside from taking it way too far. Continue reading Had to Find a New Apartment

Ready to Return to Work

It has been about three weeks now, it started like any other morning. I was in the back seat of Jack’s car since it was his turn to drive the carpool. There were four of us and I was working on something that I needed to get finished before a meeting. All of a sudden some guy crossed the center line and hit us head on. Evidently he had fallen asleep. I spent a couple of days in the hospital, then after that I had to see a chiropractor in Cumming GA and a physical therapist. We were all banged up, but I was sitting at the wrong place, the car hit us right where I was sitting and that meant that I got the worst of it. I had my seat belt on, but that did not seem to help me all that much. I ended up with all sorts of cuts and bruises. Continue reading Ready to Return to Work

We Fell in Love with Our Apartment

My best friend and I have been through a lot together. We are so close that it is as if we are sisters rather than just friends. We knew that when we graduated college, we were going to look at Stone Oak San Antonio apartments because we wanted to live with each other until that day when one of us marries the man of our dreams. It will be even better if we have a double wedding! But anyway, we both were given great job offers, so we just had to find an apartment that was conveniently located to both of them.

We looked on a map and determined the area that would be central to both. We looked at the different complexes in the area, and we knew that none of them could top the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments. Continue reading We Fell in Love with Our Apartment

A Great Place to Raise Our Family

I found the Brownstone EC because of looking at the website for The New Launch Collections. This site has all the new developments listed on it along with details for each one, and I really liked everything that I saw and read about the Brownstone EC. It is in District 27 and consists of condos on eight blocks. The nice thing about this is that it has units that range from two bedrooms up to five. I have four children with my husband, so a five bedroom condo is exactly what we need.

Right now, we are living in a three bedroom house. Continue reading A Great Place to Raise Our Family

How We Experience a Proper Website

Good website design boils down to how the end user is going to be able to experience the website in question. This used to be an easy thing to consider. What browser was the user accessing the site from? Was it a PC or a MAC? That was about the extent of the concerns in those days. Now with the pace of technology arriving at light speed we’re looking toward companies such as Massive Infinity to help provide the multiple unique frames of references which are necessary in order to provide access a website or page.

Is it even correct to term websites as websites any longer? They’re more than simply ‘sites’ that we visit. Much of the time they’re an interactive experience that provides information to the end user. In my mind they’re more like environments that we have to navigate. Continue reading How We Experience a Proper Website

I Am Moving in with the Girlfriend

I was pretty happy when I figured out that my new girlfriend wanted to let me move in with her, although it is really moving at light speed so far as the relationship goes. So I was a bit surprised that it did not provide me with a shock to the system. Usually I am not in any sort of hurry to move forward in a relationship, but this seems to be a lot different. She has a pretty nice one bedroom apartment at a place called Seaside Residences by Fraser. It is a long way from being one of the nicest of the places there, but they have two huge towers with over eight hundred condos. Continue reading I Am Moving in with the Girlfriend
