I consider myself to be a total geek. For as long as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with technological advancements and trinkets. When I was a child, I wanted to get my hands on any gadget that impressed my young eyes. I grew up in the age of giant cell phones, pagers, and tracking systems. It amazes me how much technology has changed since I was a little boy in the nineties. My wife Jinju and I both love gadgets. They are like dildos to us in that they provide us with great joy and pleasure.
Two nights ago, I was watching television with my wife. We both had a bad case of insomnia. We turned to the shopping network. They always had the best and latest gadgets for sale. Continue reading A Shopping Adventure with My Lovely Wife
The quest to find a new apartment can be something of a headache for the most people. Depending on where you’re looking you might find your options extremely limited. For someone like myself who has an already tight budget to live by. I’ve really been wanting to find a loft at the 101 Ellwood Apartments; they’re gorgeous! Unfortunately, they’re far out of my price range. Personally, I don’t mind finding a place that’s cheap and small. I’ve never been someone who carries a lot of stuff with him so moving into a small apartment isn’t that big of a deal, but boy, do I know some people who would completely lose their minds if they had to give up their furniture.
Sometimes, I like to imagine myself living the life of an aesthetic. You know, living with the bare minimum. One time, I even went without my bed. I ‘made’ a bed by going to Wal-Mart and finding several eggshell mats. I stacked them on one another and used a fitted sheet to bind them together. Continue reading Smaller Apartments Are Okay Too
I know that when my working years are done, I want to have the kind of lifestyle that my parents have right now. They are both retired, yet they are having the time of their lives. They worked hard all their lives, and now they get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. They have enough money to take several vacations a year, plus they enjoy shopping and eating out a good bit too. I went to my father for some advice, and he told me to go to http://roth-ira.net.
He had been doing some research to help not only me but my three sisters as well, and that was the website that really explained everything in detail. While he and my mom had traditional 401(k) plans, he told me that we would be able to do even better with a Roth 401(k) plan. I had no idea what that really meant, but it did not take me long to find out. Continue reading I Want to Have a Comfortable Retirement
I got a better job. A much better job actually. With that I wanted to up my standard of living. The first thing was getting a new apartment in the city. I found some East Hartford apartments that were very nice. I choose an upper floor apartment. It has a two-bedroom floor plan. The building is very nice. The floor plans here are very open. What I like is the square footage of glass windows. Instead of walls, walls and more walls there are lots of big windows. The views are incredible above the city.
I even have a concierge to accept packages and do other things for me. The place even has its own spa. Continue reading I Like My New Apartment in the City
I am thinking of trying this stuff that I found when I was looking around on the Internet. Of course this is basically what I am looking for. They sell it at this site, http://addium.us. The ad pitch is that it is something called a nootropic and that gives you a mental boost. Of course I assume that it works much in the same way that Adderall does. In fact adderall contains two different types of amphetamines and it works by putting your brain into warp drive for a period of time. Of course those drugs are also dangerous to your heart, because you can get it working so hard that it literally tears itself apart from exertion. That would not be good, but I am not sure that you get that problem if you do not abuse the stuff. Continue reading I Am Thinking of Trying This
Diabetes and some medications along with a longstanding issue with iron deficiency all lead to our daughter losing a lot of hair. If that was not bad enough, the thickness of each hair shaft diminished by at least 50 percent. So, even if she had all of her hair, she would have lost over half of the volume due to the thinning of the hair shafts. She was getting more self conscious with each bit of scalp that was showing through. She tried products and hair styles to cover it up, but only some bulk 4c hair we got and made into custom hair weaves and extensions made the difference.
The doctor was helping with the iron deficiency, and she was back on track for controlling her blood glucose levels. There was not much she could do about the other medications she was on that was causing hair loss and hair thinning. I learned all I could about hair weaves and extensions so I could do them for her. I learned from professionals. Continue reading Bulk 4c Hair Makes Weaves and Extensions Possible for Girl Losing Hair Due to Medical Reasons
Crime is a problem in virtually all neighborhoods. Citizens form block watch groups to help spot and stop crime and to encourage people to be vigilant. Everyone wants to feel safe in his or her own home and on his or her own street, but many do not. Criminal behavior in neighborhoods has turned homes into prisons.
In areas of high crime, many residents are often fearful of going outside after dark. People can sometimes feel trapped in their own homes because of the amount of crime on their block. Calling the police is out of the question for some who fear retaliation if criminals became aware of their doing so, even though many hotlines assert that the callers can remain anonymous.
The internet is a place where people are afforded much more anonymity, and this is an option for reporting crimes that might be more appealing to some people. When fearful citizens can report their observations online, they might feel more secure than doing so by phone or face-to-face. A website dedicated to crime stopping would also be a safe haven for communicating with others. It could offer a unique way to exchange ideas and information, and the results could mean safer streets and neighborhoods for those involved.
People who report crimes often have to make it official by filling out forms and submitting them to the proper authorities. Many individuals balk at this because it is a hassle. They have to go somewhere to fill out the reports; it is time-consuming and it rarely yields positive results. Having the ability to do this online would save travel time, and it streamlines the process to make it more efficient.
It might be time for crime stopping to enter the internet age. Giving concerned citizens an opportunity to report criminal activity online, interact with other like-minded residents and do the tiresome formalities from their home computer.
Up until the end of his days, my uncle was thought of as a bit odd. He owned an old brownstone apartment building on the north side of Chicago. For many years, that neighborhood was a great place to live, filled with mostly working class people who rented from landlords who took care of their properties.
It didn’t take long, however, for those working class people to want to move out of the city. They had kids and wanted yards and room for growing families, something most apartments just couldn’t offer. When landlords had difficulty renting their units, they looked to sell their places and when properties were only getting sold for future development, many were left abandoned and were ripe for all sorts of criminal activity.
