I’ve been struggling for some time now to pay my bills every month thanks to rising costs in utilities and groceries, not to mention the gas! A friend of mine from Laredo, Texas was good enough to suggest that I should consider moving; it could be difficult to find another job but if I were able to find one in Texas, the cost of living there would help me out a great! It’s embarrassing to admit financial difficulties to your friends but if I hadn’t I wouldn’t be where I am now. Moving to Texas has helped me more than I thought possible.
There had been a period of time where I was able to save money just fine. Ever since the recession hit the country I noticed that my financial difficulties were growing more and more challenging. Continue reading
We moved from a little town to Fort Worth. Where we came from there were trailer parks. Ours had the word “Estates” as part of its name, but it was just streets lined with manufactured homes up on blocks with vinyl skirting around them. It was really nice to be finally living in a home that was on a concrete block foundation. It even had a basement. It was not just a concrete slab with a house built on top of it. The basement was finished, and we had central air. The old place had it, but we had to add two window air conditioners to keep the place cool.
The one thing I like about the whole state, Fort Worth included, is being able to choose an electrical utility provider. Continue reading
Working for the pipeline industry might make some think I am making a lot of money. If that was true, then I would not have been looking for cheap apartments in Stockbridge GA. I needed something with a six month lease. I knew I would be in the area at least that long with this work I had. I was a subcontractor working on monitoring the work on some of the lines going through here. The company pays to put me up in a motel or hotel, but I would rather stay in an apartment. They kind of like it when I get one because it actually saves them a lot of money. Sometimes I see it back at the end of the year in a bonus. Continue reading
Recently, I moved to Texas for school and while I did not move into a dorm, I decided to go ahead and get my own place. It was going to be my very first time in doing so which was both exciting and nerve-wracking. This is my first time actually having any kind of utility in my name which makes me feel a little bit more like an adult with more responsibilities but also concerned that I might not be ready to be paying for all these bills! I found a great site (click here) that helped give me some context in what I should be paying for my television services. Since I’m against anything Comcast or Time Warner related, since they’re going to become one of the worst monopolies in the United States, I decided that Direct TV couldn’t be so bad. Continue reading
Of course I used to have the student deal from Time Warner Cable. Myself and two other guys were renting this house about three or four blocks from the campus. We were paying around twenty two dollars a month for cable. The three of us probably would not have done it for more, but that was only seven dollars and change for each of us per month. We had a lot of other expenses and obviously we were interested in having a social life too. There are a lot of girls in college and it is a lot easier to invite them out if you have a few dollars in your pocket. It is definitely very hard to impress a girl if you are dead broke. The truth is that we did not think too much about it at that price, but now I am living by my self in a one bedroom apartment and I am not too happy with the prices that they are charging.
That deal that we got in college included an HD decoder box. You really do not get a lot of HD channels if you do not have that. The truth is that the thing does not work all that well. The DVR is a lot better, but they want seventeen dollars per month to rent the DVR. It is not worth that much, but you can not really let them rack you up with all sorts of little charges if you are not watching them. I got my bill the other day and it was way over a hundred dollars for cable tv and cable Internet. I looked at it and tried to figure out what I was paying for. I did not have any pay channels, not even any sports channels added on.
I have been spending way too much money on electricity recently, and it is starting to really bother me. Last month, I spent over 500 dollars on my electricity bill. That is just ridiculous. It has been hot, and the air conditioning has been running a lot. But I set the air conditioning thermostat to 78 degrees in order to save money, and my bill was still that high. I need to learn more about ways to save money on electricity. I am hoping to find some useful tips, that will allow me to do just that.
I also have a mind to try to look for other electricity companies, to see if there are any companies that have lower prices. Or, if there are any companies that have better deals or incentives available for new customers. Continue reading
I live in the beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina, and I do not think that I will ever move to another city. But that is aside from the point. Right now, I have an issue on my hands that I would like to get taken care of. There is tree near my house, that is very old, and very large. I am worried that it could come down at some point, and so I want to find a company for tree service in asheville nc.
I want to get this tree taken down, but I would like to get an estimate for how much it is going to cost. I want the estimate, before I actually hire anyone to do the job. So hopefully, I can get someone to come over to my house, and do a free estimate for me. I would not like to wait too long for the tree to be cut down, because it really worries me. I do not know how likely it is that it might fall down in the near future. Continue reading
I was really bored with what was on TV with the cable package I had, so I got on the Internet to see if I could have TV that offered more channels for a better price. We only had our new big screen TV for a week when I was a bit disappointed. The cable company charged a lot more for HD channels. I found out looking at an ad that told me to click here that I can get up to 195 full time HD channels with a satellite TV provider. Yes, I was definitely interested.
When you have a brand new big screen TV that is capable of the latest in high definition TV, you want to see it in action. When I switched us to satellite, we started to enjoy our TV watching a lot more. This was especially true of football games. It was like being there only better. Continue reading
A burglary in one direction in our neighborhood got my attention a few weeks ago. Then I kind of let it go because it was in a bad section that most of us avoided. However, when a home invasion happened just down the street, I could not ignore the risks any more. I was looking then to see if the best home security with ADT would be affordable for us. I was pleasantly surprised to find out what you can get for a low cost and low monthly monitoring fee.
It pretty much comes down to the fact that just about every family can afford a basic ADT security system with monitoring. It is good to get protection now and add to the system later if you are on a tight budget. Continue reading
I am going to need to get something done with my hair in the near future. I had a perm done a couple weeks ago, but it is starting to fade, and lose its hold. I am going to try to get a perm done in the near future, but I am currently on vacation in Singapore, and that kind of complicates things to an extent. I want to look for a place to get a digital perm in singapore and have it done well.
I am kind of bummed that I will not be able to get a perm done by the person who usually does my hair. But I guess that is part of the territory, when you are traveling. Continue reading
After retiring, I decided to get a quiet house, located in the mountains. My grandfather used to live on this property, and so I still owned it. It was passed down to me, from my father, and there was nothing on the property until recently. I had to have a house built on this property, but that was not as expensive as I thought it would be. I am looking into details about satellite tv right now, because I have decided that it might be a good idea to get television.
At first, when I built the house, and decided that I was going to move to the mountains, for the sake of the peace and quiet, I did not think that I would have television. However, I have lived most of my adult life with television, and it was hard to just give it up. I do like the peace and quiet here, but I am going to try to get television hooked up in the near future. I do not need a very expensive television service though, because I doubt that I will watch it all that often.
At the most, I would probably only watch it a couple hours a day. I do not think I would watch more than 3 hours a day, very often. It depends on what sports are on television though. I do like to watch sports, and that is one of the main reasons, that I am going to get a television service hooked up. I know that I can’t get cable hooked up, because this is such a remote location. However, I am pretty sure that I will be able to get satellite at this house, and I want to look into the prices, so that I can make a decision soon.
I need to buy some streams for this one site, to increase the popularity of the music that I have uploaded to the site, and I want to do that today. I just got paid, and so I have some extra cash that I can put towards this. I am going to try to buy Datpiff streams and I think that it would be a good idea if I could get them for as cheap as possible.
I did not realize that it was possible to buy streams, until I was talking to a friend, who is also on the site, and he said that he did it once. He said that it really helped his popularity for awhile. I think that my music is a lot better than his, but I would not say that to his face. Continue reading
I Just got to College Station Texas the other day. I was staying in a hotel, but this morning I found a house to rent and I am trying to get the power hooked up right now. Of course I thought that there is one company you call, but the landlord told me that in Texas you can pick your power company, depending upon where you live. You can go to http://energyproviderstexas.com and see who you can pick in which ever place you are in, but I was just wondering which one could come out the quickest. I was guessing that they could probably give you a better deal maybe, but I wanted to get my power hooked up and so that was how I decided. I was tempted to call them both up and tell them that the first one here got my business, but instead I called both of them up and told them where I lived and asked them how long it would take.
Of course I did not tell the absolute truth when I was talking to those people. I told both of them that the other one said that they could be out there that afternoon. It did not work with the first one I tried, but the second one said that they could get out there that afternoon too. In fact they got there before it was lunch time. I had my grill out and I was making hot dogs while I waited for them. That was basically what I could do while I was there and I did not want to go off and miss my appointment, so I was having hot dogs for lunch. Once they hooked up my power I had to go get some groceries so that I would have food.
If you are looking for an apartment, you should be looking at http://pavilionsapartments.com. They offer some of the best apartments on the market at some of the best rates I myself have ever seen. Never can you find an apartment company that is so nice to their potential tenants. THey will even come in on a sunday to meet you if you need them to. They are very accomodating and are not even mean about it. I had to schedule an appointment on sunday due to work and they showed up happy as could be. They were not even upset about me making them come out on one of their days off. They realize that people have to work and they make accomodations so that even those people can have a chance to live in these amazing apartments. Continue reading
Of course my name was on the lease and so it was fine for me to throw this guy out of the apartment. He was just not working out. I liked him fine as a person and he would have made a good drinking buddy, but I was not going to clean up after him and I was not going to hire a maid agency to do it either. I can not claim to be the cleanest person in the world, but I do have to draw the line some place and that is where it gets so bad that I can not get my girlfriend to come over to the place. It is not like I am some clean freak, it is not like that old TV show where one guy is a slob and the other one is totally OCD about keeping the place as clean as it can possibly be. Continue reading
I am going to try to find a security system provider soon, because I would like to have a new security system put into my house. We have a security system right now, but our house was recently broken into, and the security system did not even alert us. That is probably the best sign that you do not have an adequate security system, and it was really eye opening for my whole family. Anyway, I want to find a douglasville adt security branch, and try to find out how much it is going to cost to have one of their security systems put in my house.
I probably should have had an ADT security system put in my house to begin with. Continue reading
There are a lot of people who have been able to take advantage of the opportunity to make extra money online by writing articles, blog posts and website content. Even people who never considered themselves to be writers have been able to do this. With the extra cash that they make, they are able to accomplish financial goals, buy things that they want, and do many other things. Some people have even been able to invest in properties at the following website: http://www.summitpointeapartmentsofoklahomacity.com. Making just a little bit of cash every week can really help a person to accomplish financial goals and get what they want out of life. What are some things that can help a person to improve their writing? This is a very important question, especially because there are so many people who are writing online and they have no previous writing experience. One thing is reading new books. Continue reading
When I first joined SoundCloud, it was just to listen to other people’s music. I was extremely private about my own, but that was just because I had never been exposed to fellow musicians like I was on SoundCloud. I lost my shyness right away though, and I decided to start posting some of my own stuff rather than just listen to what others were putting on. I got some really nice comments and feedback, and I knew that I was going to continue putting my music up. I wanted to find out how to get more likes on SoundCloud, because I quickly became addicted to all the positive things being said about my music.
With each new comment that was praising me, I knew that I needed to get more people listening to my stuff. Continue reading
I guess you could say I love to shop. To me shopping is like a marathon, you have to be in it for the long haul if you want to find the best deals out there. Each year I plan day after Thanksgiving shopping as well as my Cyber Monday shopping three days later. I always scan the internet for the best cyber Monday deals for 2014. The way I look at it, if you are not saving at least half off the normal purchase price then you are wasting your time. My family and friends are generally in awe of my talents as a shopper. Continue reading
I want to get a business degree in the near future, because I think that it is the best way to improve my options for having a good career going forward. I have been working for my father’s business for most of my adult life, and it has given me a lot of insight into how to run a business. However, it would be better to have a degree to attest to my knowledge of business. I am looking at finding a place to get a mba in singapore. I would like to get my degree from a fairly prestigious business program located in the country.
I am going to try to start the program soon, because it would be helpful to have a degree in hand in the near future. I do not know how long it typically takes to complete this type of degree. But I am hoping that I can finish the degree in just a few years, and then get a good job. It is time for me to move on from working at my father’s business, and find my own career. I have put in my dues, I feel, and now it is time to do something for myself.
I think that my father would agree with this sentiment, but at the same time, it is hard for him to let go. I would one day like to start my own business, as my father once did. However, that is not something that I would be looking to do, after graduating with my MBA. Rather, I want to get more experience in the business world first, and I hope to find a great job with a large corporation that is based in Singapore. That is probably my ideal job right now, but things could change.
I have stopped my service with my last internet service provider, and I am going to start to search for a company to replace them. I need to hurry, because my internet service will end in just a couple of days, and I would like to have something in place, before that happens. I found a URL, http://www.internetproviders.us/internet-bundles/, for internet bundles, and that is probably what I am most interested in looking at right now. I do not get a very good deal on my television right now, and I did not have a very good price for my last internet connection either. Continue reading
Living i n a progress first world country like the United States would lead you to believe that there are some fantastic high quality Internet Service Providers – unfortunately, that isn’t the case. If you consider Google, sure, we have the best in the world but Google is only delivering to a handful of towns while the rest of us are forced to look for affordable internet service that is not going to be absolutely terrible. Which, unfortunately, is just not the case. Continue reading
I have been thinking about getting television for awhile now. I really miss it, and when I was younger, I would spend a lot of my time watching television. Although, I admit that I probably spent too much of that time watching television. I was searching the internet, and found a click here link, and after following it, it actually took me to a site that was about satellite television. I was not expecting the link to actually be helpful, but I must admit that it was a pleasant surprise. I am hoping that I will find a place to buy television from, but it depends on how much it will cost. I am not willing to spend that much on television, because I do not make that much money. The reason that I do not have any television right now, is that once I moved into this apartment, I was so broke that I could not afford to get television. Continue reading
It is kind of odd how I got here, but I am In the marketing department now and my job is to figure out how to get more Twitter followers. In fact I still do the other stuff I used to do, but I am also in charge of the twitter account and our other social media accounts. I just happened to make a joke in front of the boss. He asked us how we were supposed to get more people to follow us on twitter. I remarked that we could show them some pictures of the girl from accounting, the one who has a really awesome body. Of course he gave me a look like I might get fired and I said that we needed to give them something they wanted. Continue reading
I am not thinking that the house boat is going to be doing a whole lot of moving. We have a slip for it on the lake and that is where it is probably going to stay. I did take it out and found that it worked alright. It is certainly not fast and it does not turn. The air horns did not work, probably because the air compressors have gone bad. I will be getting some new ones in from a place I found on the web. it is called Train Horns unlimited I think and they sell the air horns and the compressors. I found some wiring diagrams that were for different types of autos and trucks. Continue reading
Vine was bought before it even came out for $30 million. A whole new social media platform of six second videos you can edit on the fly and post. I thought that it was the dumbest thing I ever heard of until I actually started looking at some of the videos. Sure, there is plenty of goofiness, but there are also a decent amount of very cool videos to look at that are being posted every day. Six seconds is a short time frame, and a lot of people are looking to buyvinefame.com to get more famous on this social media service.
Just like the other platforms, you can get something to go viral, but it does rely a lot on the service actually promoting what you post. Continue reading
I have not been done in this part of the world since I was a lot younger. I lived in the Floride panhandle for a few years while I was in elementary school and middle school. My Dad was stationed at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola Florida. Of course I lived through a couple of hurricanes and I was there for a couple of bad ones. When we got down here the first thing I did was to look at the hurricane shutters on this place. It did not have the real ones, but in place of those there were pairs of sliding rails. You can take a half sheet of plywood and slide it in to the place over the windows. Continue reading
I was looking for cheap adjustable dumbbells to get back into a good workout routine. I used to do strength training when I was younger. I built muscle and got stronger. It stuck with me for years after I quit. I slowly lost the muscle with time and aging. I wish that I would have kept up with it. Now that I am older, I have lost a lot of muscle mass with a recent weight loss for my health’s sake. Now I wanted to get strong again.
I did not go all out with a routine that was binding. I did casual strength training using some lightweight dumbbells I already had. I could barely lift the lightest ones when I got started again. However, weeks into it I was already using the heaviest weights I had. Granted, they were not that heavy. Continue reading
I work for a company that is interested in investigating the usefulness of different social media platforms for marketing purposes. There is obviously a lot of potential out there, but it might be tricky to utilize it properly and effectively. I think it is a lot more complicated than more traditional forms of marketing. Anyway, I am curious to find prices to buy instagram followers for a new account that I have set up, because I am trying to do some research on using Instagram for marketing purposes. I am not sure how well suited it will be for marketing the particular type of company that I work for.
I think that there is enough crossover between the content on Instagram, and the type of business that we do, that it should work alright. However, there is a lot that is unknown right now, and that is why I am doing this, as a bit of an experiment. I also need to try to figure out what types of content are most popular on Instagram, so that we will be able to replicate such content, in our own marketing.
I am also curious to try to learn more about how things go viral on the Internet. I know that it might not be very easy to research such a thing, but I have confidence that I will be able to uncover some information that will be of value. I need to get this Instagram account up and running though, because it is my top priority right now. I need to have some results, to report to my boss, within the next week. I hope that is long enough to develop an account that has some level of popularity, and that is part of the reason why I will need to buy followers.
