I Just Started My New Position

I got off of the plane the other day and I immediately got lost in a huge traffic jam as I left the airport. Obviously Singapore is a really crowded place and I found this out immediately. Something had happened and it took me about an hour and forty five minutes to get to my hotel. I believe that I probably could have walked there in about the same time, as it was not that far. We have just gotten started here and the company secretarial services are from this employment agency, at any rate they picked out a secretary for me and I am quite sure that she is a really beautiful young lady.

I Want Smooth Skin on My Face Again

When I was younger, I had very low self esteem because of the acne on my face. I knew that a lot of kids had acne, but mine was by far the worst of everyone in my school. While most kids were nice, not all were. When I got older, the acne didn’t flare up as badly as it had when I was younger, but my face still bore the result of years of acne. When I first heard of Singapore acne scar removal, I knew it was something I wanted to learn more about.

I went to the website of the company that does this, and the first thing I saw were before and after pictures. This was nothing short of amazing to me. Continue reading “I Want Smooth Skin on My Face Again”

The Advantages of Having On-Site Video Teleconferencing Training Rooms

We grew to the point of having a satellite office. Then we expanded again to have another office and production center. Getting everyone on the same page required repeated meetings from management at each location. We tried the group phone calls and the videochat, but we needed something better. We opted for using a room at each facility and completing a video projector installation along with a computer system to allow full teleconferencing. We can see and speak to every member in the room just like we are there. It is kind of reminiscent of the secure room where they have satellite communication on that TV show NCIS. They use a big screen for two-way communication and they have theater style seating in the room. Ours pretty much looks like that, except it is not dark.

The ability to train and manage remotely has been a real time saver. Continue reading “The Advantages of Having On-Site Video Teleconferencing Training Rooms”

This Apartment Complex Lacks Nothing

As soon as I saw the pictures of the Henderson NV apartments at the Villa Serena, I knew that I wanted to live there. The first picture that I saw was actually of one of the pools there. What made this so nice was the fact of what was around it. Quality lounge chairs were definitely nice, but the comfortable beds to lie down on were absolutely heaven. Each one has curtains that are tied back, but they can be closed to give more privacy or to block out the sun if it is too bright. It is just the look of luxury that is befitting the apartments that are there.

In addition to the heated swimming pool, there is also so many other things there that would make just about anyone happy. Continue reading “This Apartment Complex Lacks Nothing”

A Safer Place for Us to Live

I had been renting the same house for nearly 15 years when I decided that it was time for me to find a new place to live. The crime around the area where I was living was increasing, and I was worried about my two children. It has been just the three of us for years, so we didn’t have anyone else looking out for us. I almost started looking at houses, but I decided to look at apartments near Alamo Heights first. I had been to an apartment that a friend of mine recently started living at, and I really liked it.

It was my first exposure to any kind of apartment, and I was really surprised at what I saw there. I guess I just had this opinion that a house was nicer than an apartment, but I found that the opposite is true. Continue reading “A Safer Place for Us to Live”

Calculating Tax and Other Deductions

I was tired of figuring out how to do taxes on my own. I don’t mean my yearly taxes, as I have an accountant who helps me with that. I meant the taxes that I have to figure out for my workers. I only have three workers, and figuring out their taxes was the most frustrating part of the job. They also have other deductions that a regular paystub generator does not take into account, which is why I am really glad that I found a fake paystub generator that handles odd deductions as well.

For instance, one of my workers is purchasing one of the company cars from me. Continue reading “Calculating Tax and Other Deductions”

An Unexpected Gift from Uncle James

When I was growing up, we were neither rich nor poor. With my dad owning a little store in town we were firmly entrenched in the middle class. When I moved out on my own and chose to work in a field that was very emotionally rewarding but that didn’t pay very well, I slipped down in the lower class. This was fine by me. I had a job that I loved and I was getting by. I met my wife through work, she is a home appraiser in Sacramento. With two incomes, things weren’t really tight until she got pregnant and decided to stay home and take care of the baby. I was one hundred percent on board with this decision but I did wonder how well we would fare with just my lower than average income to support us.

Then out of nowhere we got some incredible news, my uncle had died and left me his house. I had very rarely spoken to the man growing up. He was a total loner and he didn’t leave his house much. Continue reading “An Unexpected Gift from Uncle James”

I Decided to Do Something That Made Me Very Happy

It’s interesting that I never really got into body modifications when I was much younger. I hung out with a lot of friends who were into it, and they had quite a few. I was not against it, I simply did not do it for no other reason than the fact that I was focused on other things back then. But when I went with a friend to one of the Anaheim tattoo shops nearby, I found myself fascinated with the whole process. I suddenly felt temptation.

When I walked into the shop, I found myself walking around to look closely at all the examples on the wall. Pen and ink drawings of all different types and sizes. I loved the ones of ladybugs, cats and other animals. Continue reading “I Decided to Do Something That Made Me Very Happy”

I Got a New Bathroom for Our Anniversary

I have always wanted to have a garden tub. I thought that this was just going to be one of those things I daydream about, just like being able to run away to a deserted island for a few weeks. Little did I know that my husband was going to give me what I wanted. Well, I mean the garden tub, not the island trip! He wanted to surprise me with something really nice for our tenth wedding anniversary, which is why he wanted to find a bathroom remodeling contractor who would be able to transform our decent bathroom into a paradise getaway for me.

There was really nothing wrong with our bathroom at the time. Continue reading “I Got a New Bathroom for Our Anniversary”

Getting Files Through the Firewall

There is a website that I use to download files legally. Free movies, music, games, and software are posted daily, and when I’m at home, I can easily download them to my computer. When I’m at school, I can’t do this, because the school firewall blocks all users from accessing the website. I’ve talked to the IT department at school about it, and they’ve told me that they can’t make any exceptions to unblock it. In order to get around this, I had to think outside of the box. I acquired a managed cloud server that could be used to download the files from the website.

The server acts as a middle man between me and the files on the website. The server has its own operating system, that will download any files I select when I log into it. Once the files are downloaded to the server, I can then download them from the server. The server isn’t blocked by the school’s firewall, so transmission of the files is easy.
