It Worked for My Son

Featured

My son accels in some areas in school, but science has been hard for him to understand. Unfortuantely, I’ve forgotten moree science than I’ve ever known, so I’m no use to my son. The teachers have tried their best to help him, but he wasn’t able to understand the concepts. I turned to a jc physics tuition service for help, thinking that they could offer a new way to teach my son that the school teachers weren’t using.

The tuition service did a great job of working with my son on the basic level and building a foundation from there. The concepts that the teachers were trying to get through to my son seemed easier to understand because he was able to look at them from a different view point. Continue reading

My Sister and I Each Got an Apartment

Featured

Looking at Stone Oak apartments in San Antonio TX turned out to be much more fun than I expected it to be. I was looking for an apartment for my sister who was due to move here soon, but I ended up finding one for each of us instead. I had been hoping that she could just move into an apartment in my complex, but there were no available units. We both knew that we were too alike to share an apartment, so I started searching elsewhere for hers. That is when I came across the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments, and I fell in love with them myself.

I only looked at the one bedroom units, because again, I knew that we would not be able to live together. Living in the same complex was great for both of us, but living in the same apartment was a definite no no. The neat thing about these apartments though is that a large family can also live here.

I Somehow Got Some Malware

Featured

So I am pretty sure how this happened. I accidentally ended up at this web page where you do not want to be. However this was late at night and my mental acuity was probably not up to the usual standard, so before I knew what was going on I had this rather nasty malware on my computer. This is my home computer, but I use it for a lot of important things and I can not afford to have it out of action or to not be able to trust it. I found a bunch of no-reply@accounts.google.com and one of them must have had some malware, but it was only about using coupons to get a cheap version of malwarebytes or mal bytes, I forgot exactly what the name of it was. However I recognized it and it was one of the better known names in this area.

Of course I do not want to take any chances so I am looking for a safe place to get what I need. Continue reading

Started on the New Project This Week

Featured

Kevin and Jack are going to be working on the original project still, but I have started on the new project this week. It is going to be a big deal for me and I am going to be in charge, so there is a lot of pressure on me to get good prices and find people who are going to follow through on what they say that they are going to do. The big thing is going to be getting a fair deal on roof repair in NYC. Of course that is going to be very expensive and it is also extremely important. If you do not have a sound roof, then all of the rest of the structure is going to end up at risk at the end of the day. Continue reading

Mission

In 2000, almost all world governments came together to create the UN Millennium Development and Education For All Goals, which aimed to secure a healthier world, free from disease and poverty. These include a pledge to end poverty through making sure every child can receive education by 2015. They promised to make sure there was enough money and that the policies were in place to make it a reality.

Since then an extra 40 million children are now going to school, but more is still needed to make sure those promises are met and education is provided for the remaining 72 million out-of-school children worldwide by 2015.

See the ‘boxes’ section for more information on the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign.

Pikachu and Pocky Make for the Perfect Phone Case for Me

I’ll admit it, I’m a female well into my adult years, with a particular love for all things Pokemon and a particular love for Pocky, the delightful chocolate-covered cookies I sampled on a trip to Japan many years ago. I knew my best friend truly knew me when she gave me a pink pocky phone case that featured an adorable Pikachu munching on my favorite Pocky treat! Pink is my favorite color and anything featuring a Pikachu is irresistible to me.

I spend much of my adult life wearing a business suit and carrying a very serious looking briefcase. I work in the insurance industry and am expected to present a very conservative and professional appearance every day. I visit clients who work in the same type of offices as I do, without a lot of color and without humor. Continue reading

I Am Still Job Hunting

I have been out of college for a couple of months and I have started to really sweat the fact which I have not yet found a good job. Of course I have been delivering pizza, but that is hardly what I am looking for and it is wearing out my old car. I have been talking to a guy I knew from the church my family attends. He works for an insurance agency, they seem to mostly sell insurance business plans. Of course you may not know this, but when the banks loan you money to start a business they insist upon you have insurance. They are not really worried about the wife and kids that you might leave behind, but instead they are not going to have you drop dead and leave them on the hook for the money that you owe them. They intend to get paid back, but of course you have to pay for the insurance even when it benefits them instead of you. Continue reading

Moving Closer to Work Was a Great Move

My sister and I had been living together for nearly two years when she got engaged to her boyfriend. The two of them had a very short engagement, but we all still had plenty of time to decide what to do about living arrangements. There was no way that I was going to live with the two of them, and I did not want to keep a two bedroom unit by myself. I told them they could either keep it, or we could all find our own place. I did a search for Forestville MD apartments, hoping to find something that would get me a little closer to work.

When I lived with my sister, it took me 40 minutes on a good day to get to work and then another 40 minutes to get home again. Continue reading

Enjoying the Ocean in Revere Massachusetts

Don’t get me wrong, I had loved living right in the city of Boston. I could walk everywhere or grab a bus when I needed to, but I was ready for a little quieter lifestyle. Looking for apartments for rent in Revere MA was the start for me and even if only a five-minute from downtown Boston, it was vastly different to this city dweller.

Revere was big enough to have tons of great shops and social opportunities in a bit more relaxed atmosphere than the city. The commute to my job would be a bit longer, but I would also be driving my own car and not reliant and dependent on public transportation to get where I wanted to go when I wanted to go.

In all of my years living downtown in Boston, I never had much of a view of anything other than buildings from my old apartment. Continue reading

I Had No Idea That My Job and City Would Change So Quickly

After living in Texas all my life, it is funny to think that I had never been to the beach in my state. I was just four hours away, but yet, I had never gone. Not only that, the state borders Mexico, and I had never visited there either. One day, I was looking at our bulletin board at work, and I saw that there was a management position available in another city. I was thinking it over, when my boss came to me and said he thought I transfer and then start looking for Corpus Christi Texas apartments quickly. I never thought he would want to lose me, but he said the position came with a raise and a promotion. They really wanted someone like me to head up the new office there.

I went home that night and mulled it over. Continue reading

I Needed More Credit for Social Security

When I found out that I needed a few more tax credits for my social security to kick in when I was able to retire, I talked with my sister. She has a small business, and she often hires a few contractors when she gets overwhelmed with orders. I knew that it wouldn’t help me to be a contractor, so I talked with her about being an hourly worker just until I received the credits I needed for my social security. I had found a fake paystub generator too, which I showed her.

I knew that she would do anything to help me, so I wanted to make it easier on her too. I did not want her having to figure out taxes or anything like that, especially with her never having to do that before. Continue reading

Making a Flawless App for Your Business

If you have a business, you have to have an app. However, you actually want it to be an app that your potential and existing customers will download and actually use. If you can get them to use it every single day, like they do their texting app, then you have really hit on something. That is a hard thing to do for some industries. If you can at least get them to go to your app first for the product or service you sell, then you have accomplished making a useful app. For our business, we used www.massiveinfinity.com to make an app for us.

We knew that our demographic would not be using the app every day. However, we have a demographic that is very desirous of knowing what is new for the things we sell. We tie the app to a profile they have built with us, and we push notifications of new products we think they will be interested in. Continue reading
