A DIY Project at Home

No matter where you are in the world, there are times when you’ll be doing do it yourself home projects. They can involve clothes, household items, household repairs, or really anything! The one time I specifically dealt with DIY projects is when I was overseas visiting family in Singapore. At the time they happened to be working on a room in their home and needed some help. We spent some time brain storming and after some discussion went online to search. Eventually we came across . This was the perfect site for them because it was specific to the situation.

Personally, I was amazed at how easy it was to follow these step by step process and do it ourselves at home. Yes, it took some effort to finish the project. This was, of course, bond to happen because when you are working on any type of project you’re going to work up a sweat. It was almost kind of nice when we did feel this way because it meant we had done a lot of work and it was going so well. In the end, the floor was a success and it was so great to see the finished result.

My main point in telling you all this is that you can do DIY projects if you want. Yes, it won’t be easy, but you can do it if you put your mind to it. Look up something online and read about everything you have to do. Then start the process of actually being able to plan it. Get the supplies you need, make a schedule, and get any help from friends/family. If they are willing, of course.

As I said, it won’t be easy, but try. If you try then you can at least say you did!

I Hope to Be Back Home Soon

I am not really thinking too much about the future really, I am just trying to get out of the hole and find a way to get back on my feet right. Of course I have government benefits and for now I am doing well compared to where I could be. My uncle owns a company that does tree removal in Hendersonville NC and I moved up there so that I could make some money this summer. He has a loft over his garage. I cleaned it up and made myself a really comfortable place to lay my head, although it is not going to be suitable when the weather turns cold in about three months or so. Hendersonville is in the mountains, a little south of Asheville and when the weather turns up here it turns fast. There is actually a ski slope within walking distance of here, if you are tough enough to walk up and down mountain slopes of course.

If I want to talk to the store from here, the actual distance is not far at all. I suppose that it is less than three quarters of a mile. However it is up hill all of the way and I lose my breath a little when I go there. Of course I am trying to lay off my bad habits, although if I knew any girls around here I am sure I would fall prey to that temptation rapidly. So when I go to the store I buy things that I have to have. I am saving pretty much every dime I can without starving to death. Of course when food is your only expense that is not much money that you have to spend. I will head back home when the winter starts up here and I have a good job lined up I hope.

Unintentionally Exploring a Hot Trend

Hot yoga is something that I’ve read about, but I never imagined that I would be doing. I’ve been running the studio for about five years, and during the middle of one of my yoga classes, the air conditioner stopped working. Everyone in the studio began to sweat a lot more than usual, and it was beginning to feel like a sauna. I had to make the entire class take more breaks than we normally do, and I aimed some fans at the class. I had to find a company for a repair on an HVAC in Bronx or else we would all be sweating bullets for the future classes.

I asked the class if they wanted to end early that day, but they decided that they wanted to continue doing yoga in the heat. I thought they were crazy, but they were paying me to teach them yoga, so kept the class going. In a way, it was heart warming to see everyone so dedicated to continue with the yoga, but it was also something that I don’t want to do again anytime soon. Once the class was over, I looked at as many repair companies as I could find.

I was able to get in touch with a company and they came to the studio to figure out why the air conditioner wasn’t behaving properly. They did a little bit of disassembly and found a few parts that had worn out from regular use. It was fairly easy for the company to replace these parts and the air conditioner returned to its normal operations. On the next day of yoga class, my students asked me if I could turn the air conditioner off again so they could perform yoga in the heat, and I politely declined because I didn’t want to pass out.

I Wanted to Lose 20 Pounds

I decided once and for all to lose the extra weight I had been carrying around since I had my third child a couple of years ago. I didn’t think much of it because it was just 20 pounds, and I had already gotten used to it. When my doctor told me that I should lose it though to feel even better, I decided to just get it over with. The only problem was, I couldn’t do it on my own. I ended up finding the solution at after a good friend told me that Thyramine is what helped her with her baby weight too.

It is not that this supplement is designed to help women with post baby weight. It was just a coincidence that she needed to lose baby weight also. She had tried for months and was not seeing any real progress, and she decided to try a supplement that would actually increase her thyroid function. Continue reading

I Am Back in School Now

Of course I was in college for two and a half years and I was doing really well, but there was not enough money for me to finish right off. So I went back home and began to work a job at a department store during the day. At night I managed to find this thing doing physics tuition for rich kids, or at least most of them were rich. It is not like a poor person can really afford to pay someone to tutor their kids. They were usually willing to work hard enough, which is really great. Continue reading

Creating a Network of Contractors for One-Stop Shopping

I am a general contractor and have come up with an idea to create a network of different contractors in which we all refer each other to our customers. It can be kind of like a one-stop shop. We could all set our own prices but would have the opportunity to possibly give a discount if the customer uses multiple services from our network. I have made initial contact with everybody I have in mind except for a Nassau County tree service company. I plan on calling a former colleague who does this scope of work.

I already know a lot about his company as I have used his services myself and think that his prices are reasonable and fair. He has a professional staff of laborers, a certified arborist and sales reps. Continue reading

I Am Headed Down the Right Path in School

My parents have told me that the education they received was not as demanding as young people get in school now. I have been struggling with my physics classes, so I’ve been getting help from the company at that my parents found to help me. The man who owns it is a tutor. Without the help that he offers, I think I would have failed my class at school. He helps to break everything down in ways that is easy to understand. That alone has made me far less stressed.

My parents told me that they did not even need to take physics when they were in school. My school also demands that we learn a second language, and my mom and dad did not have to do that when they were getting their education either. Continue reading

I Hurt My Tailbone in a Fall

I have fallen a few times in the past, and the only thing that was hurt was my pride. When I fell this last time though, my pride was the last thing that I was thinking of. I could barely get up on my own, and my tailbone hurt so much. It hurt to walk, it hurt to sit, it hurt to do just about anything. I spent nearly two days laying on my couch or bed, but then I knew I had to look up some Santa Maria chiropractors and find one who would be able to see me that same day.

I could not go through another day of just laying there in pain, and I knew that I needed to make sure there was nothing seriously wrong too. Continue reading

I Wanted to Look Good Again Without Resorting to Makeup

“Your skin is looking rather unhealthy,” my husband said to me one night when we were sitting down at the table for a nice dinner. It was frustrating, but I knew he was right. My mom had also pointed it out to me. I booked an appointment with an aesthetic clinic soon after my husband made that comment to me. I knew that neither he nor my mother were being cruel. We all point out changes in one another. I’m glad they said something because it made me realize that I should go get help before things got out of control.

Cosmetics have never been my thing. Most of my friends love cosmetics. Continue reading

How In-Line Skating is Bad for Your Back

In-line skating can be hazardous to your back. What makes it even more interesting is that I was not the skater! I was crossing a paved path from the beach to our car to get the cooler and beach umbrella. I waited as a bunch of bicyclists and skaters went by on the path. I crossed and almost got clipped by a guy zooming along super fast on skates. He was a big guy too. One of those muscle-bound dudes you always see here. My trip back across got me an appointment with my chiropractor in Santa Barbara. The same guy was on his return trip and nailed me. You would think he would have learned by almost hitting me the first time to not be looking at his phone and power skating. Continue reading

I Have a New Partner to Play Games with

I often play video games when I go visit my grandparents. Just recently, my grandfather began to take an interest in my games. He began asking me which ones I play, how I figure out how to best play them and more. I asked if he wanted to try one of them out, and he was hooked soon after. I set up my favorite game for him to play, then I downloaded a Virtual Families 2 hack so that I could get him some of the items in the game that will help him play easier. He is 84 years old, and I think it is pretty cool that he is now playing, too.

I visit my grandparents during school holidays and for a few weeks every summer. Mom says this gives her some time off for herself, and she also wants me to be close to my grandparents. I love to visit them. They spend a lot of time doing things with me when I am visiting. Continue reading

I Learned That My Wife is the Same Great Woman That She Always Has Been

I don’t like it when people stonewall. What that means is that if I ask questions and someone refuses to answer, that is a problem for me. It is abusive in my eyes. My wife had suddenly started stonewalling when it comes to the Snapchat app she uses. I wondered if there is a way to hack Snapchat easily, and there certainly is! All I had to do was to download another little app that does all the work for me. I am so grateful for all the little tech helps that are available to people now, and this particular one also saved my relationship.

The reason that I left the last woman that I dated years agao is because she was super secretive about so many things. It was like pulling teeth to get her to tell me where she was going, where she had been, etc. Continue reading

Flyer Advertising is Still Popular in Singapore

My sister still lives in Singapore with our parents. She takes care of their needs, but she has always wanted her own business. Though our parents do need a little extra help, they are supportive of her living out her dream. They helped her lease a place, buy furnishings and hire staff for her nail salon. My sister is a real go getter. I paid for her first three rounds of flyer distribution in Singapore to get her business off the ground. She started out with two part-time helpers, and now she has five full-time workers who are swamped with clients.

My sister’s approach is to do it right the first time to keep customers coming back again and again. She also personally trains each staff member to do the manicures and pedicures her way no matter how much experience or training they have. My sister uses innovation and bold techniques that wow her customers. She has an incredible amount of male customers who want good looking nails too. Continue reading

The Struggle to Watch My Weight is Easier when My Routines Are Consistent

Birthdays, backyard barbecues and summer vacation are just three things that can cause me to go off my diet. I do well when the routine of work and days off is consistent. When there is a special occasion, I can fall off of the diet wagon a little too quick. Two weeks ago started three birthdays, one was mine, and two backyard barbecues, and I started my vacation too. Now I’m looking online at the IdealShape meal replacement shake reviews to see if they will work for me to lose the fat I gained.

Am I disappointed in myself? Yes, I really am. I have worked very hard getting into shape by watching my diet and lifting weights. I was proud of the way I looked. Then my jeans fit tight after my vacation was over. Continue reading

Now I Can Play Without Breaking the Bank

I thought about using a Forge of Empires cheat about three months before I actually started doing serious research into finding a cheat that would work for me. I don’t like cutting corners in any game, but really I was spending so much money on this game that I either had to get a second job or cheat! Seriously though, I was putting out a lot more money than I was comfortable spending. As most of us dedicated players know, it’s so easy to lose track of your expenditures with these games. I know I lost track.

When I noticed how much I had spent on diamonds and other trinkets necessary to advance quickly, I knew I either needed to quit playing entirely or find a cheat. I decided on the latter because I really enjoy the game. Even if I could jump forward a lot, I knew I was still going to keep playing because I like the graphics and the layout. These types of games go on forever anyway so it’s not like getting ahead in a slightly shady way will change much in the long run. Still, I needed to find the right cheat. I didn’t want to get scammed.

And I found it! Lots of people have used this cheat to great effect, so I figured I would get on that bandwagon and see what would happen. I was able to get a lot of diamonds, and I mean a lot. I figured since I was in I might as well pick up a lot of supplies and coins as well. It was as simple as putting in a just clicking a few buttons and generating the necessary stuff I needed. I didn’t even have to download anything. Now I’m playing the game and moving a lot further a lot faster!

Would You Do This if You Could Get Away with It?

Of course this is not going to be legal, but this guy was claiming that he had figured out a way that he could tell me how to get free money on paypal. He was using some sort of program, which it was claimed could help you get up to a thousand dollars. I could probably get away with it without getting punished, but the reward simply does not seem worth the risk to me. I could use a thousand dollars, just like anyone else could, but a thousand dollars is simply not worth a great deal of risk. Continue reading

Oil Changes, Racing Toddlers and Lower Back Injuries All in One Day!

I bought a used car to save money. We have been cutting our budget and working overtime saving for a down payment on a house. I took the car in for an oil change and learned that there are no lube points on newer cars, so no need for grease. Plus, the oil plug and the filter were easy to reach even without the car on a lift. So, the next time I decided to change the oil to save money. And this is my story of why I needed to see a Corte Madera chiropractor after attempting to do my own oil change on my new car.

I went to the auto department at Sam Walton’s big old store. I like my name for the place better than what everyone else calls it. They have the cheapest oil. The stuff is all the same when you buy it buy its rating. This car used the semi-synthetic type, and it was a few bucks cheaper to buy it buy the case. I picked up the box and put it in the cart. Well, that was the plan anyway. When I turned to put the box in the cart, a little kid came racing by between me and my cart. I was trying not to hit him with the box or step on him. I did a little dance as the kid bumped me and rushed passed me, and I got a funny feeling in my lower back.

It kind of felt like I had pulled a muscle. Continue reading

A Breast Cream That Truly Works

I wanted to find the best breast enhancement cream, which meant I had to go online and find out what really has worked for other people. I knew that there were creams out there that worked, but I also knew that there were a lot that were just out there to take a person’s money too. I did not want to go to the website for any of the brands themselves, because I just was not sure I would get unbiased information that way. What I did instead was seek out reviews by people who have actually used these products.

I figured that would be the fastest way to either rule a breast enhancement product out or put it on my short list to try. Continue reading

Helping My Brother with Pay Stubs

My brother asked me if I would be able to help him with some accounting work. I did take accounting in high school, but that was nearly 30 years ago. I just did not feel confident enough to help him, especially when he told me that it was pay stubs that he wanted me to do for a few contractors he had working for him. I told him I could not do that, but that I would help him find a cheap way to go about it. I found a site that said to click here for more information on generating pay stubs, so that is what I did.

It took me to another site that is exactly what my brother needed. Continue reading

I’m Taking the Same Type of Classes My Dad Once Took

I was born in China. My mother was also born there, and when she was in her twenties, she met an American man who she married. That man is my father. When we still lived there, my dad had access to a great kung fu education because of the many classes available in a nearby city. When I was very young, I can remember sitting outside and playing with my toys while watching him practicing his moves nearby. He learned enough to become a brown belt while we were there. When I was four years old, we moved to America.

I was never lucky enough to take all the same classes that dad did before we left to come here. I was too young, or so my dad thought. But he did take the time to teach me some of the things he knew. I would clumsily follow along, but did not have much interest because I was so young. Instead, I wanted to go outside to ride my bike, play with my friends or throw a ball around with my playmates. Continue reading
