I Only Want Cool Chocolate

I learned how to make chocolate confections from a master chef at a young age. I used the knowledge I learned from him to open my own store that sells these confections. Each day I mix chocolate put it into various molds and make all kinds of shapes. Whenever parents come to the shop with their kids, I always give out free samples and the kids love it. In the middle of making a batch of confections, the air conditioner in the store stopped working. I contacted a company for facilities HVAC management for NYC. I needed to have the shop at a constant temperature or all of my chocolate would have melted.

While the kids wouldn’t mind eating melted chocolate, the rest of the customers want to have solid chocolate confections to eat or give away as gifts. Continue reading

High Expectations from Gift Giving

Birthdays is one of those weird days that we have to deal with, arn’t they? There are some who absolutely love birthdays whether it’s their own or not. Others, not so much. It’s not a thing that I’ve ever been into as there is so much intention, meaning and expectation that rests heavily on the concept of what a birthday should be. Even from the most simple of birthday greetings to finding the right birthday present for someone it’s the act of gift giving for the day that a person came into this world kicking, screaming and crying as a brand new life. That’s some heady expectation of celebration, man.

It’s why I’ve always tried to not make a big deal out of my own birthday. I love being alive! I’m thankful that I am but to expect gifts for something that is most likely nothing but happenstance on the part of my parents seems a strange thing to me. Giving gifts to other people is different, though. What I enjoy is being able to give something to someone who doesn’t expect gifts. Continue reading

Top Realtors in Denver Area

I am going to be looking to buy a house in the near future, and I would like to hire a realtor to help me with that process. I had thought initially that I would be okay to do it on my own, and thereby, save myself a little bit of money. But after attempting to do so for a bit, I have realized that I do not have the time to go that route. I am therefore looking for Denver Realtors, and I want to find one with a really good reputation, so to help insure that I will have as good of a chance as possible to get the type of house that I want to buy.

I have already been pre-approved by a lender to buy a house, and I think that the pre-approval is good for the next 4 months. At least, I am pretty sure that is what I remember being told. I think it will be a lot less stressful to buy a house given that I have already been pre-approved. It should definitely cut down on the time that it takes to finish the process of buying a house, after I find the house that I want to buy as well.

So now I am going to look online to see if I can find the right realtor to use. I want to check a lot of different websites, and really dig into some information, and compare different realtors to the best of my ability. That way, I will have a decent idea of what is available, and hopefully the necessary information to make an informed choice on the matte.r I am really excited about buying a house, because I have wanted to be a home owner for years and only now am I in a position to do so.

Losing Fat the Easy Way

I used to feel awkward around my friends because I was the only one who was overweight. Granted, it was not like I was obese or anything, but I definitely wore a couple of sizes up from them. I have always been active as an adult, but my job is very sedentary, which is where the problem was. It did not matter if I was active for 30 minutes after work if I was sitting all day long for the most part. I decided to look into weight loss in Singapore because I really was tired of feeling so unhealthy when around others.

I looked at a local clinic that helps people who have weight issues. As soon as I saw pictures of people who needed to lose weight, I knew that I had come to the right place. Continue reading

Found a Short Term Job

I just got started at my new job, although it is hardly what I was looking for. Obviously I have to pay bills, especially the part where the landlord comes and asks for the rent. I could not afford to wait around for the perfect position to become available. I am working as a sort of handyman in this office. They are having me move around helping out where they need someone, today the job involved coming up with something called a paystub generator. Of course we do not use real checks, that is pretty much a waste of time and paper. Continue reading

Helping My Mother Reconnect in the Dating Scene

My father passed away three years ago and my mother is just now getting out and trying to meet people. It might sound surprising that I looked online for sex toys for a parent, but let me explain what I actually did as it’s not as weird as it sounds. So she met some guys her age and went on a few dates, but she’s self-conscious about her age and her body. This is ludicrous as my mother was a model in her twenties and she’s aged very well. She gets a lot of attention from men her age because she looks so good.

I looked online for sex toys because I thought they’d have some outfits that Mom might like. Sure enough I found a site that sells both the toys and the lingerie. I wasn’t about to be so forward as to buy my own mother something really risque, but I did find some elegant outfits that I thought she might like and that might make her feel better about her figure and the impression she might make on potential dates.

Living in and Loving Uptown Dallas

Fresh off my divorce and having just earned my college degree at the ripe old age of 43, I landed my first professional job in Dallas, Texas. I checked out many areas of the city and decided to plant my roots in a vibrant community with great shopping, restaurants and parks to explore. I spent many hours looking at apartments in Dallas Uptown before settling on one that had absolutely everything I ever dreamed of and was completely opposite of the rural country house I had spent the last 18 years of my life in.

It was a conscious decision to change my lifestyle completely. Not because I hated my ex-husband or the life we had been leading, but I knew I needed to escape the easy complacency of living in the same town I had been born in, grew up in and lived in all of my life. Continue reading

Living Close to My College

I was really excited to be accepted at Liberty University. I have a specific calling on my life, and I knew that my education there would help me achieve it. I have a small trust fund that was set up for me by my grandparents, and it is to be used for education. I was able to secure full scholarships, but I still had to pay for my living expenses. I looked at apartments in Forest Virginia once I found out that the trust could be used for that too.

I was really happy that I would be able to just focus on my studies rather than dividing my time between studying and working to support myself during these next few years. I wanted to live close to the university too, but I did not want to be right there on campus. Continue reading

My Luck Really Changed in Unexpected Ways

Years ago, I was on a work trip and I drove through Nevada. I really loved the area. The colors of the desert fascinated me. On my way back through the state after my work trip, I decided to stop in one of the towns that appealed to me most. That town was Henderson, and I spent the whole weekend there. I left thinking that I might like to move there one day permanently. Just two years later, I got my chance to accept a job there and look through apartments in Henderson to find my new home. Just six months later I began dating a woman and we married within the year. Continue reading

Our Daughter’s First Apartment is a Success

We were buying some furniture for our daughter’s first apartment. She had made a list of all the things she wanted from the NovaSolo furniture online store. She said that she was going to see what she could budget for now, and then she was going to buy the rest as she earned her paychecks. She said she was not going to use any credit for furniture. She had been saving for the move since high school. Our little girl was a planner, and now she was in her first job after graduating college and moving closer to her work.

We decided to buy her everything on her list and have it shipped to her apartment. Continue reading
