My friends and I were hungry for some food one day, and wanted to have something besides the usual pizza that we would order on a Friday night. We were in the mood for a little Italian, so we looked for a San Diego Italian restaurant that we would be able to visit. None of us had really been to an Italian restaurant, so we were kind out just looking for one in the dark. We found one that was particularly popular in the area, and hopped in the car so we could get some food.
After being seated in the restaurant, my friends and I looked at the menu and picked out some entrees. Continue reading » Trying out a New Restaurant
I have been thinking about the future a lot lately and wondering how I can achieve my goals, which is a very complicated thing. Of course like most anyone I would like to earn a really good living and not have to work like a dog to do it. Obviously I do not want to be a ditch digger, because those guys are severely underpaid and you do not have to try it long to figure that out. I have been thinking that I might like to own my own web design company for instance, or something similar to that in the broad outlines. You sit on your butt in a nice air conditioned room and you get paid a good deal of money for the work. When I started thinking about this it was really a lot about the concept of working for myself and not having to listen to a bunch of people telling me what I should do, so I was thinking that I could do this by myself in my bedroom or den or such.
However then I began to realize that there is a lot more to any job than just doing the actual work. Obviously a web design shop designs web pages and that is what they get paid to do. However in any enterprise there is going to be lots of other stuff that needs to get done and no one is going to be able to effectively do the primary job and all of the secondary stuff with no help. The big thing is finding the customers and dealing with them. You would definitely need one or more persons to handle that part of the deal. Then there is the usual overhead, administrative work and things like paying your taxes so the government does not lock you up.
My husband and I said that we were going to have to move to a new home because our old one was just too big for us. Our daughter had gone to college and I knew that things were changing for us as well. I wanted to move to a smaller house because I did not want to clean an extra bedroom and and extra bathroom if I did not have to. I had to look up cleaning services in Singapore to find someone that Our house was large but we made it a home for many years. Continue reading » Starting All over in a New Home
Thanks to Singapore Physics Tuition, I know have a much firmer grasp on Astronomy than I did when I decided to sign up for a course on the subject at the university. You would think the class itself would teach the subject well, but that wasn’t the case. I’ve found it’s pretty critical to mesh well with an instructor when you are studying a topic that is difficult or that does not come easily to you. I went in for additional help very early on because I knew if I didn’t catch on quickly I would fail the course.
The instructor tried his best, but just couldn’t make any headway against my inability to grasp the subject. Continue reading » Extensively Covers All Branches of Physics
Having never lived in an urban area before, I wasn’t use to the fact that my new city isn’t as safe as my small town life was. I noticed that a lot of my neighbors use ADT in Phoenix for home security, so I decided to follow suit and get an alarm system installed in my house, too. I could easily see how doing so helps people to feel more at ease in their homes and while they are away from home, too. I may not have the ability to leave my door unlocked all day like I did in the very quiet country city where i used to live, but I can still stay safe with no problem by simply pushing the button on my security system now.
Back home, it was rare to see many cars on the road at night. This is because many of the local businesses close at 8PM. Families often spend time together at night, and most people there find very little need to go out to do things after the sun goes down.

I tried hard to work with my father at his business, but I am not a good salesman. I know that it disappointed my dad. He was also irritated at first when I left his company and began working at a company that does moving out cleaning in Singapore. He couldn’t understand the appeal, but he finally understood when I left that company and started my own company doing the very same type of work. It was then that he understood that I had simply wanted the experience so that I could learn enough to run a business the right way.
Dad has always felt that I am lazy. I would agree with him that I was very lazy when I was much younger. Continue reading » I Had to Learn How to Do Things for Myself
My daughter excels in all of her classes now, but that was not always the case. She was an A student in all of her classes but physics. She told me that she just didn’t feel anything for the subject, and that there was no excitement there. I told her that physics is probably the most fun science there is because it helps us to understand the world around us. I gave her a challenge, because I knew she would not be able to say no. I told her about a JC physics tuition that I had researched.
I told her that if she would go there and learn privately in a small group, I knew that her entire outlook on physics would change. I also promised her that if she went and did not like it after a couple of weeks, I would drop it. She took the challenge, just as I knew she would.

I had a child very young, and I have struggled a bit in life because of it. But I wouldn’t give my little boy up for anything. I would not go back in time to change things because he is my world. My life is happier with him in it. So, when I found myself tired of living in the garage at my parent’s place, I wanted to go look at apartments for rent in Forest VA so that I could get a nice place for my son and I. My parents let me live with them so that I could save money. I did that for three years straight. I saved every little coin that I could, and now I have a nice little nest egg. I was ready to get something that would be nice for both my son and me. Continue reading » I Wanted a Nice Life for Me and My Son
I have always lived on my own. I know that some people would rather have a roommate so they can lower their individual costs, but I was willing to pay more so I can have my privacy. I like other people well enough, but I knew that I was too set in my ways to ever want to live with another person. When I started looking for apartments for Henderson NV when I got transferred there at my request, I knew exactly what I wanted. Because of that, it did not take me long to find it.
What really helped me the most was being able to look at pictures online of the different apartments in the area. Continue reading » Living Here is the Best of Both Worlds
When my wife called me crying a few weeks ago, I thought the worst had happened. We have four children, and I thought something happened to one of them. She didn’t make me wait too long though, for which I am extremely grateful. She told me that she was at her wit’s end, because she was not able to get the air conditioner working at our house. She wanted to know if she should call a company that does air conditioning repair in NYC. I asked her a few questions, but it was pretty obvious that we were not going to be able to fix it over the phone with me 2000 miles away on a business trip.
I told her I would look online for the company that we should use, and I would contact them. Continue reading » My Wife and Kids Were Overheated
