Moving Mom into a Local Apartment

I knew that I was going to have to start looking at apartments soon, but it was not a task that I was really looking forward to. I had promised my mom that I would help her look at luxury apartments in Florissant MO though, and I knew that the time had come to do that. I felt pretty silly when I told her that I would pick her up so we could look at them, and she told me that she had meant for me to look at them on the Internet.

That is pretty funny, considering my mom just started using the Internet for more than email just last year, and I had been using it for two decades now. Anyway, I realized she was right, and I started looking at local apartments right away online. » Read more

It is Pretty to Find an Inexpensive Place with No Roommates

Living with roommates was something that I no longer wanted to do. I had spent four years and in college while living with a group of rowdy guys. I’m an introvert by nature, so you can imagine that this was pretty rough on me during school. After graduation, I looked around at apartments near Alamo Heights to see if the rent was something I could handle alone. During school, it was It was a must to live with a lot of other people so that we cover all of our daily expenses.

I don’t really spend very much money, so I was hoping that I would have enough cash each month to live in a one-bedroom place alone. All of the places I ended up looking at showed me that it will not hard to do at all. » Read more

Uptown Living for a Few College Students

I struck up some fast friendships at college in Dallas with a couple of people, but within weeks of living in the dorms we were looking for uptown Dallas apartments for rent. The problem, we all agreed, is that we simply couldn’t study in the dorms. There were too many noisemakers and general malcontents having a great time away from their parents for us to crack a book and learn anything. By the third or forth week of the endless partying and generally obnoxious behavior, we decided to pool our money and look for a place far away from campus.

We don’t mind having a good time, but with an apartment of our own we can control when it happens. All of us are serious students, and we’re serious about work first and fun a distant second. Our main concern was making sure we found a nice place that we could afford. » Read more

Being Beaten by the Best

I’ve met an intense rival at the Goodlettsville Apartments. I was playing on the tennis court one day, and a random person walked on the court. I didn’t think anything of it at the time, as he was just minding his own business. He pulled out his racket and ball and started doing some practice swings and hits. Then he looked my way and asked me if I wanted to play a game with him. I was up for a challenge, so I agreed and our match began. This guy was better than any tennis player that I ever faced.

I worked up quite a set during our intense game, and I was on the verge of victory for a while, but the other man came back and defeated me. He had to rush off the court before I had a chance to find out what his name was. The entire day, all I could think about was how he had beaten me. I considered myself to be one of the best tennis players at the apartments, but my thinking had been challenged in only one day. I had to have another match with that man, but I didn’t know how to get in contact with him.

Later that week, I went back to the tennis court to practice, and the man walks onto the court again. I walked up to him and asked him for his name. He told me and challenged me again to a match. I accepted the challenge without hesitation and the match was underway. This time, we had a little audience watching up play. I heard some cheers going on in the background, and I think someone was betting money on the match. I lost the second match, but the man told me to contact him when I was ready to play again.

New Things Because Part of Your Life Quickly

Sometimes it just does not occur to you that you will be out of a job that you’ve held with no problems for over 15 years. But one day, I showed up at work and found the front doors to the building were locked. Not long after, I found out my company had shut its doors without a word. I wondered if I would soon be joining all the people who search for the best scrap metal buyers to purchase the metal for that they get. I know a lot of people who do it after they lost their jobs.

I guess what bothered me most is the fact that I got up early to get some things done the morning I learned that I no longer had a job. I woke up early because I didn’t want to be late to work. Once I was done doing a few small projects, I was able to sit down for my usual cup of Joe and reading the newspaper. Then, I got ready to go to work and left on time. I was proud of myself for being organized. » Read more

We Have a Cool Room for Fruits and Vegetables That is Chilled by an AC Uinit

We have a cool room in the house where we keep fresh foods and other items we do not want getting warm. It is not bigger than a closet. My wife and I like to cook a lot. We provide some meals to our grandparents and some other elderly relatives and neighbors. The cool room is where we keep things such as potatoes and greens and other fresh foods we use in cooking. It is cooled by an AC unit that blows cold air into the room. We called for HVAC repair in NYC to come out and fix it. It was a particularly hot day when it quit working. I did not want our fresh vegetables and breads to go bad. The room does not get as cold as a refrigerator. it is just kept cool and dry. The AC really dehumidifies the air very well.

I got the idea from a cool and dry room we had at a restaurant I worked at as a teenager. » Read more
