My grandmother is turning 90 years old in a couple of weeks, and the entire family is throwing her a birthday party. I wish I could say it is a surprise party, but she is actually helping with the planning! She is definitely the most unique grandmother ever, and even at nearly 90 she has such life in her tiny little body. When she told me that she had been looking at a Snapchat filter maker that specializes in special occasions, I had to laugh because really, what other 89 year old woman talks about Snapchat photo filters?
She loves social media though, and she has more friends on her accounts that most of us do on ours! That is why she was looking at the filters because she knew that people would be taking a lot of pictures at her party. She showed me the page of birthday filters that this company will custom make for anyone. There were basically two prices. Continue reading My Grandmother Ordered a Snapchat Filter!
I really appreciate the many different benefits that come from the place that I work at now. I felt so unappreciated where I worked before, and I got tired of it and I finally left. My new company recently sent us for corporate team building in Singapore and I think it is one of the best things that I have ever been through. I want a lot of things that I was not aware of, and the training also helps remind me of some things that I needed to keep in mind while working in a corporate atmosphere. It also brought me closer to my co-workers.
I didn’t get my degree as early as most people feel. Continue reading It is Nice to See That There’s a Place That Cares About My Well-Being
I have been working on ways to be really good at the sort of job that you can make a lot of money at, but it is not going to be very easy. Of course there is a lot of work to be done if you want to make a great impression in this sort of business. You have to think about all sorts of big things and little things, for example you want to know how to do a great powerpoint design so that when you make a presentation that is going to impress the people who make decisions. In fact that seems like it is going to be really disproportionately important if you want to advance. You are going to be doing your actual job most of the time and that is how you have to really make an impression. Continue reading Working to Get Ready for My First Job
I did a search for urban clothing boutiques online after hearing some women at work talk about their favorite places to shop. I don’t know them well enough to join in their conversation, but I certainly didn’t mind visiting the sites they were talking about since they were not being quiet about it. The main reason I went to the site is because all three of them are so stylish, and I had often wondered where they got some of their clothes. We are allowed to dress casual on Fridays, and they always looked really nice.
When I went to the site that I had heard them talking about, I knew that I was going to end up getting a few things from there. They have clothes that are just not found on the racks at the stores around here, and I really liked seeing the wide variety of fun clothes that they have. One of my favorite things there were the rompers that they have. There are so many different kinds, and I decided to buy two of them that first shopping trip. Continue reading We Both Look Really Good when We Go out
For my civil engineering class, I had to use a program called RockWare to do my assignments. My laptop was too old and slow to run the latest version of RockWare. I had been using the computer for over 10 years, and it has served me well, but it was really showing its age and needed to be replaced with something better. As much as I liked the portability of a laptop, it was holding me back from the computing power that I truly wanted to have. I decided to get a desktop this time, one with the right specs to run the program.
Rather than buying a brand new computer, I opted to get a refurbished one. Refurbished computers can be bought at a fraction of the cost of a new one, and they can still work just as well as a new one. At the very least, they’re more powerful than a laptop made in the same year. Continue reading Modeling on More Powerful Hardware
My wife is in the military, which means that we move around a lot. When she told me that she would be stationed in Vail next, I had to look it up on the map because I had no idea where it was. Vail is in Colorado, which was a pleasant surprise to me. We had been living in the hot Georgia sun, and I was getting tired of it. While I like the state, I can’t stand the heat, so I couldn’t wait to see some snowy mountains. We looked at some Vail luxury real estate homes that would be a good fit for us.
The home we settled on was a pretty big one, but it sure looked great. It had plenty of space for us, and looked kind of like some kind of mansion straight out of a movie. It’s a good thing that we can afford to live in such a place. Continue reading We’re in Vail for Now
Even though I know it is happening all over the world, I never realized just how negative the effects of deforestation has on us as a society. Trees are so important for our very survival, and cutting them down in the large quantities that we are currently doing is causing havoc in ways I never even realized. I started learning about these effects once I started reading a blog that has a lot of articles about nature and the world we live in. It was there that I learned about how harmful we are making our planet by cutting down so many trees.
It is really sad when you think about it too, because not all the trees need to be cut down. A lot of them are taken down for one reason, which is greed. The people who are making these decisions, I wonder if they even realize the hardships they are making possible. The major one if the effect that it has on the climate. Continue reading There Are Dangers to Deforestation
I like that my business runs on high quality products. This is one of the reasons that I purposely chose to purchase vehicles for my fleet from Sewa Truk recently. I do not want my maintenance department to have to spend a lot of man-hours I’m working to keep our trucks going all the time. I want something quality up front will work for many years to come. We make a lot of deliveries, and we need to be on time for all of our customers. This is what makes us number one in the business in our area. Our customers know that they can depend on.
I want from any other delivery companies when I was coming up in the world. But I noticed that they didn’t make customer service their number one priority I saved my money and worked hard so that I can own my own company 1. I wanted to make sure that I have customers who are satisfied. Sometimes things happen that upset customers but I work hard make sure that I make things right for them. Continue reading Things Need to Be Done Right at All Times
We have a high school dance coming up, and I want to look different from everyone. All of my female classmates are talking about blowing a lot of money on very expensive, traditional, classic dresses. That sounds boring to me! I plan on wearing a cute, short dress that looks like it’s from the 50s, along with some Reaper pantyhose tights and high heels. I always get a lot of compliments. People are always asking me where I get my clothing.
When I was very young, I worried that I was too different. I noticed that I like things that are more unique than what most people like. Continue reading I Do What I Want to when It Comes to Clothing
It is not easy to browse the world wide web for very long and not run into a bunch of weird stuff. Of course nearly all of it has something to do with sex, I suppose that most people think about it about ninety plus percent of the time. Most guys think about food, cars and girls, not in that order. At any rate you run into every sort of weird sex fetish and that seems like where most of the weirdness exists. Then I ran across this place that talked about creams for penis bleaching and vagina bleaching. Continue reading I Learned Some Weird Stuff Today
It doesn’t help very much when you buy a scale from a chain store that is digital, but it doesn’t work like it should. I’ve had this happen with 3 different ones that I’ve purchased. I wasted money on all three. The nurse at my doctor’s office told me that I should look for a medical grade digital scale because I will find hat the quality is higher over all and they are factual. I was stunned that the scale at their office was 5 pounds over what I thought my weight may be. I feel it is pretty important to know the correct answer about how much fat loss you need to be at the right weight for your body. Continue reading Getting Serious About Weight Included Buying Quality Equipment
My friend had her website redone not long ago, and I was really impressed not only with the look but with the increased revenues that she was experiencing because of the change. She told me that the Atlanta WordPress design team that did it was quick and professional, and they did everything exactly the way she wanted it done. I had my own website, but it was a bit stagnant. I thought about contacting the people who she had redo her site, and I was finally convinced to do it when she showed me the before and after figures of having her website done. Continue reading My New Website is Mobile Friendly
I thought that this would be a good time for me to take a look at all of my bills and figure out how to cut expenses. With the winter coming up, I know that I’m going to be spending a lot more money on utilities, especially gas. All of my appliances run on gas, so I usually end up spending more money on gas than electricity. I thought I would go online and try to find some information about gas company rates in my area. Since I live in Ohio, I am able to shop around and choose my own gas provider. It’s a great benefit of living here.
We use a lot of water, and most of the time that water is heated. Continue reading Switching Gas Providers in My Area
I had a nice case for a rifle that included a shoulder strap, but it broke a couple weeks ago when I was out turkey hunting. I am not sure why the strap failed, but it broke and the whole case fell off of my shoulder, and into a puddle of mud. I didn’t bother trying to fix the strap, or to clean up the case. But instead, I just threw it in the trash when I got home. So now i am shopping around for a camo rifle cover that I can use to replace the one for the one that I threw away in the garbage.
