I am pretty much ready to get packed up and head back to the Gold Coast. I have been here in Singapore for well over a year now and while it has been a great experience, I am more than ready to see the home folk. The big project that the company has been subcontracting on is called Principal Garden, which is a really large residential project that has just been completed. It consists of four towers which each are 24 stories high. Of course in Singapore you do not really buy a condo, but instead these units are sold as 99 year leases. It seems likes a silly thing to me, but no one here seems to mind all that much when you do business with them. Continue reading
I really felt it was the right time to look into a bunch of different cheap apartments in Stockbridge GA because the rent on my place kept going up and up. When I moved in, the price wasn’t too bad. And I thought that the higher price meant that the landlord had it priced that way because it meant he would be more attentive, but that was not the case. I just knew that I could find a place cheaper with a much better landlord.
I am lucky that this town has a mix of prices. I know that some people in other large cities have to deal with higher cost of living, but my town is full of all sorts of different people and companies with a wide variety of prices. This means that I can afford to be choose. I know that friends of mine live in cities where everything from the cost of food, gas and rent is rather high. Here, the gas is lower priced, the grocery stores are rather expensive, and like I said, the apartments are a mix. It would be great if it would be like that for people everywhere.
I got up early on a Sunday morning and walked down to the corner store for a newspaper. I wanted to take a look at the classified ads as early as possible so that I could see what was available rent-wise. I know that some of the best places, especially those that are inexpensive, can be rented out rather quickly. I circled quite a few places that looked interesting and called them. The first order of business was to find out if they allowed pets. I have a tiny Pomeranian, but she needs a friend. I went to four places that stated that they allow two pets. I Picked the second place that I went to.
Childhood can leave its marks, especially the teen years on some kids. My marks were actually not emotional ones even though I had bad acne. For about five years it was bad no matter what I did. That was before all the modern treatments. Back then the undercurrent of thought was that bad acne was caused by poor hygiene, poor diet or just being poor. Your peers saw you as diseased, and you can imagine how that goes. Still, I did not have the social and emotional scars, but I did need an acne scar treatment for the physical scarring.
You would not think that acne would leave physical scarring on the skin, but it can. The scarring depends on the severity of the acne, and, I suppose, your own ability to heal correctly. Continue reading
