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

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.

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
