The Price of an Education is Measured in Ramen

Long time no see, guys. Yeah, a week isn’t the longest time to not update a blog but for me it’s like I’ve been gone for ages! Since I enjoy writing down the babbling ramble of my thoughts here, that’s a very long time indeed. It looks like I scored a job at reliant energy in san angelo, which is going to take a lot of the stress from my shoulders that I’ve been feeling lately. With this being my second year of college I think I have finally come to terms with just how little money that I actually have – I definitely knew that I was going into as situation that was going to leave me strapped for cash but I kind of thought that the whole surviving on Ramen Noodles thing was just a metaphor for being broke. Boy. Let me tell you; stay away from that beef flavor, it’s only good after the first fifteen or so packages!

I wish I were kidding about that. Continue reading »

699d1351098004-kopi-luwak-coffee-kopi-luwak-coffee.jpgMy brother tells me he is a coffee aficionado. He tells me he is the coffee gourmet. He even has a small roaster in the kitchen of his home. He does brew up some very delicious coffee. He goes as far as buying specific beans to make his own blends. Ever hear of anyone going that far to make coffee? Me neither. However, I knew something he did not know about coffee. I bought him some kopi luwak coffee online. Maybe you heard of it being called Civet Coffee? If you look up “civet,” you will find out that it is a tiny animal that is like a cat in Indonesia. what does that have to do with coffee you ask?

Well, here is where it definitely gets interesting. The civet likes to eat the ripest fruit from the coffee plants. That is not good when the growers are wanting to only pick the ripest coffee cherries to make great coffee. Continue reading »

I Wanted to Feel Safer at Home

I am really cautious with most things, which is why I was surprised that I did not have a security system for my home. I didn’t even think about getting one until a house down the street was broken into a few weeks ago. I realized how easily it could have been my own house, because I wasn’t home when the burglars struck my neighbor’s house. I heard about the break in the day after it happened, and I was online looking at different systems within an hour of hearing the news. I found, and I felt very confident that I was choosing the right security system and monitoring company after doing all my homework on finding the best company for my security needs. The thing that I liked the best is that the company that does the monitoring, ADT, is one that I have heard of before.

Started Doing a Little Bit of Food Hoarding

I have started to think about keeping a couple of weeks of supplies on hand at all times. It started after this super storm thing that happened in New Jersey and the Northeast. All of those people up there were not really ready for that sort of storm. It was mostly about stuff you can not get easily. There was a lot of gouging over gasoline and I do not know what to do about that, you can get two or three five gallon cans of gas, but that does not do much. I can get vacuum packaging equipment for food though. In fact that is pretty easy. You get a good amount of food to last you about a week or two. Continue reading »

I Sent My Wife Make-up Flowers

My wife and I rarely fight. When we do though, it is usually pretty major. The first time we had an argument was right after we were married, and I actually moved out for three days. Since then, we have learned to control our tempers, and we make up almost immediately now. The secret to that is an email my wife had sent me after one of our earlier fights. It simply said, click here flower delivery. I had to laugh, because I was planning on sending her flowers anyway. I know how much she loves them, and I figured that a nice arrangement would get me back in her good graces.

Just Hit Vegas This Week

Got moved into the new place today, I was sitting out front waiting for the guy to come and install frontier internet service and things started stirring around the apartment complex. After a bit the internet guy showed up and both of us were really distracted by things out in the pool area. I had to go check it out in person once I got the Internet hooked up. As it turned out I have lucked into a really great place to live. I am not sure why, but this place is completely packed with beautiful women. Like me a ton of them are working late night. I go into my new job every night at 10 PM. I get off about five or six, depending upon what goes on at the resort. Then I am back at the apartment a few minutes before the sun rises this time of year. It is not that ideal of course, but as it turns out this is perfect here. I did notice that there were other people out in the parking lot when I got home this morning and I assumed that they were getting ready to go off to work. However it turned out that like me they were coming off after working the late shift on the Strand. It is amazing to see the pool at this apartment complex in fact. I am told that the place belongs to a choreographer at one of the big casinos and that she rents out the places to a lot of the dancers that work there for her. It is certainly easy to believe when you see how fit these girls are. All of them are really slender, some a bit more than I might idealize women to be personally. That is not much of a complaint though. Browse Through Way More

FInally Got the Settlement Done

Pooler, GA. - Personal Injury Lawyers in Pooler, GeorgiaIn the past six months I must have heard from a small army of los angeles personal injury attorney representatives. It was pretty easy to see why. The guy who got drunk and ran me off the road was some big real estate guy. He is one of those guys who sells mansions to guys like Charlie Sheen and the other big Hollywood celebrities. At the time I was working at a place in Malibu doing some custom work for this beach house on a cliff above the Pacific and I was going into work at 5 AM when this guy came at me in the wrong lane. He was apparently asleep at the wheel or some such state. At any rate I was lucky that I did not flip my truck and they had to cut my truck open to get me out of it. Of course they were putting me in the ambulance and I was trying to get my tools up off the side of the road. They were probably worth about half as much as the truck was in truth and I kept wondering if my insurance would replace them.

Of course I am not really big on suing people when I can get out of it and I know for a fact that the lawyers always end up eating up half of the money from the settlement. These guys were claiming they could get a million dollars out of this and perhaps they could have, but they would have ended up getting half of the money. I got a different sort of lawyer, one who charged me a straight fee to draw up some papers and then I sat down with the insurance company and got it all sorted out. Of course they wanted to give me a lot of the money twenty years from now, but I got something I could live with.

Looking Forward to a Challenging Chemistry Course

Sticky November 17, 2013 David Leave a commentWhen it comes to education, there is no better reason to make a financial contribution to your child's future. My daughter will be attending school next year, and we are all very proud of her. We are excited that she will be enriching her mind and working towards a lifelong path of education. As we near the beginning of her studies, there are some things we need to finalize. One of those items on our list is her chemistry tuition. It is worth every penny, as the coursework she will be taking will prepare her to be a doctor later in life.

The chemistry coursework is very challenging, which is a good thing. I want her to be challenged so that she has an opportunity to grow and learn as much as possible during her time in school. The tuition we pay now is just a small investment in ensuring that she is able to do so. I'm glad that she will be taking this type of coursework, because her school has one of the best teachers in that discipline in the nation. He has many years of experience in the profession, which makes him quite qualified to teach young minds. His experience can be used as an example to those students interested in going into a similar profession.

Once I pay the tuition bill, I have a few other things that need to be completed. She will want to go shopping for school clothes so that her wardrobe is prepared. We will also need to buy the supplies that are required, so that she can stay organized and take notes. I believe that's also very important as well. All of these things cost money, but of course I don't think of that alone. I look at the big picture and remind myself that this is an investment in her future.
