I Took the Job Nobody Wanted and It Now Pays Well Enough to Support My Family

The heat is on early in life here in Singapore to be productive. There is a lot of competition in just about everything. I am not the competitive type, so it was difficult for me to find a career to thrive in. I like to just do my best. I do not like time pressures or competing against those I work with. I was fortunate to have a company owner recognize my abilities to work independently, and that got me a job that has made us able to afford our condo. You can see the new condos at https://www.signatureyishun.org.

I took over a job that others did not particularly like to do. (more…)

We Are Both Going to Thrive in Charlotte

I was not looking forward to moving to Charlotte at first. I thought I would be leaving everything behind, and by that I mean my son. When he told me that he would like to move with me though, my entire perspective about the move changed. I thought he would want to stay because of his girlfriend, but he told me that they were on the verge of breaking up, which really surprised me. It made me happy too though, and I started looking for two bedroom apartments for rent in South Charlotte.

I knew that I was making the right move for me, because I had worked hard for the promotion that was taking me there. (more…)

We Just Got Back Home

Of course when you are in the Air Force they tell you where to go and we have been fortunate that they have accommodated us and let us both serve in the same places. I am glad to be back home and not have anyone telling me what to do, although Megan was saying that she is going to miss flying. We have been home a couple of days and we started to look for a one bedroom apartment for rent in Tucker GA. Both of us are going to be going to school for a bit, but I have a job working for a friend of my uncle. He has a used car lot and he needs a new mechanic. The job does not pay what I would like it to pay, but it is a temporary thing until school starts and it pays a lot better than flipping burgers or that sort of thing. (more…)

We Jumped at the Opportunity to Rent This Apartment

My wife really liked the bathroom in the apartment we looked at. We had seen so many apartments that they were all blending into one in my mind. I was weary of looking. Then we found these apartments for rent in Manassas VA that were brand new. The place had just recently opened. I have to admit that the big glass walk-in shower was nicely designed. I fancy myself an amateur gourmet, and I liked the kitchen. It was laid out really nice, and it had space for everything I need when preparing a fancy meal. That’s what my wife calls them. She enjoys them, but pokes fun at the level of work I put into making some meals. It’s a hobby. (more…)

Celebrating 35 Years of Marriage in Tuscany

We usually host our family reunions at my parent’s ranch. It is rather large, and there is plenty of room for anyone wanting to stay overnight or even longer. This last year though, we wanted to do something really special with just our immediate family before the actual reunion took place. I had been looking at luxury villa rentals in Tuscany because my parents had gone to Tuscany for their honeymoon 35 years ago. They were married when they were both 18 years old, so they are still very young at heart and in great shape physically too. (more…)

My Sister Needed a Place to Stay

My sister went through a pretty rough divorce not long ago. She was living in Maryland with the man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with. The first year of marriage was good, but things changed when she became pregnant. She loved her daughter before she was even born, but her husband did not. She ended up divorcing him even before the baby was born, but he harassed her for a while. I begged her to come down and look for an apartment for rent in Brandon FL, which is where I have lived for the last three years.

She was here once and really liked it, and I knew that she would be much happier here. I offered to let her stay with me, but she is pretty independent. (more…)

California Life is the Best Life

The mission viejo luxury apartments were perfect for my niece. My niece had just moved back from Europe where she had been working for two years. She decided that Europe was not as safe as it use to be, so she told me she wanted to move back to the states. I told her I would help her find an apartment, if she would just give me the things or amenities that were important to her. After getting her list of priorities, I went to a local real estate person, but she just didn’t find anything that was in the prices range my niece needed. You think a real estate person would be able to do that, but no luck.

So I finally decided I would do better if I started to look online. (more…)

An Apartment Where I Can Have a Lot of Fun

Moving is all what a person makes of it. I don’t mind moving, but that could be because I had a great example in that area. My dad was in the military when I was younger, and we ended up moving a lot. My mom took it all in stride, and it was always a fun time for us, no matter what. That is why when I started to look at Ballantyne apartments in Charlotte, I was determined to make it as fun as possible. I wanted to find a nice place to live that would keep me smiling, and that is exactly what I found.

I thought it would be nice to live close to enough to things where I could walk instead of having to take my car. I am a social butterfly, and I love to do all kinds of things in whatever neighborhood I am living in. (more…)

A Place Just for Me

I had a bit of trouble locating a place to live earlier in the year because all of the college students were getting the good places. I should have started looking for a place earlier when I had the chance, but I would always put it off for another day. Every where I turned, someone else had already taken a spot that I thought would be perfect for me. I couldn’t think of anything else, so I turned to the Asheville apartment rentals ad that I saw on the Internet, and decided to give them a look, and it turned out in my favor.

The apartments that I found were just what I needed, giving me a single spot to call my home, while being in a nice location, having good access to shopping centers for buying food and other items. It was even a good distance to my job, which was great because I hate having to wake up really early in the morning to get on the highway. It’s always a long trip, and sometimes some crazy person with very little sleep will get into an accident, making it harder for everyone else on the road.

There is something about my apartment that I didn’t think about, but it comes as an added bonus. I have the ability to get some exercise done because of the pool and fitness area that residents use. Some days I ride on the exercise bicycles, while other days I go for a swim. It’s better than having to buy weights or machines and keep them in my room. In fact, I sold all of my old dumbbells on an auction site and used the money to buy some new exercise shoes. They took a bit to break them in, but they feel good on my feet now.

Getting Our First Luxury Apartment in Colton CA

We have lived in a couple of dumpy places since college. We were settling for what we could find and afford in the city close to where we were interning and where we met. When we got married, we gave up our individual dumps to move into another one that was even worse. After getting hired, we started to look for luxury apartments for rent in Colton CA. We had enough of bad neighbors and landlords that could never be reached. We wanted a place that was well managed, had a night patrol and had a bunch of amenities to make apartment living nicer and more fun.

We decided to move to The District at grand Terrace Apartment Homes. Our kitchen has new black appliances. It is clean and the rooms are a nice size. (more…)
